JesterZ Moves to Mesa Riverview

They said it couldn’t be done. A family-friendly comedy club? In a sluggish Arizona economy? Give it a year at the most, skeptics predicted.

LamarThat was back in 2001, in Scottsdale’s Papago Plaza. But creators/owners Jef & Shurlin Rawls have defied the odds in an impressive, grandiose way.

Not only did their clean comedy concept take hold instantly but it has thrived so much that now, 13 years later, it has outgrown its original venue.

Enter Jester’Z Improv’s new, creative comedy theater in Mesa Riverview, 1061 N. Dobson Rd. #114, Mesa, AZ 85201.

photo lobbyFor over 13 years, Jester’Z Improv has performed live, family-friendly comedy shows weekly. Moving to the entertainment district of Mesa Riverview, is giving Jester’Z Improv a major upgrade, according to creative designer/owner Shurlin Rawls.

“With a lobby twice the size as our previous venue, it brings 10 times the visual “wow-factor,” Rawls explained. “Our new all-ages, family friendly comedy theater has twice the space, twice the seating and 10 times the professional elegance.”

JesterZ StageJester’Z Improv will continue its tradition of providing their always popular CLEAN COMEDY show at the new Mesa Riverview location, as well as adding sketch and stand up to their performances and class schedule.

“Every patron can sit back and enjoy, knowing that we won’t cross the line of raunchy or crude humor. No swearing or colorful content. We take great pride that our troupe is so talented and professional that they have the skills to be hilarious without being offensive. Our integrity of clean hilarity is our trademark.”
