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.
That 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.
For 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.”
Jester’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.”

I originally signed up for Jester’Z beginning improv class almost 2 years ago. It for realZ changed my life and in so many wayZ made me a better person. People say I’m funny so I figured for sure I’ll be good at improv. I mean that’s what people would say to me, so why not?
Well what I learned in the first 10 minutes was…IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH BEING FUNNY! Say what?!?!?!?!?!
Improv is about thinking fast, fully listening, trust, staying present, relationships, and so much more… If you work in sales, as I do, beginning improv should be a pre-requisite for your company’s orientation in my opinion. Really if you’re a human being, beginning improv should be a pre-requisite for, I dunno….puberty? LOL… I think about the incredible advantage all the teens who take the teen beginning improv class get from learning such valuable skills at such a critical growing stage in their lives. Oh how different life might be had I learned this stuff then….excuse me… I digress…
Bottom line…I often feel like I want to drag people to the class and then say…”See I told you so”, but I am a firm believer that people have to decide to do things on their own. Now this goes way against my desire to want to control things, shocking I know that I can admit this, but at the end of the day where else can you go to grow as an individual and have an absolute blast and make amazing friends? (If you have an answer that is anything besides Jester’Z….please skip it…you get where I am going with this right?)
So, I’m curious….to anyone who has taken an improv class before, especially at Jester’Z….what made you decide to do it and what was your experience like? Please comment below and I will end this with a picture of my beginning improv class from 2 years ago…since ‘they’ say a picture is worth a thousand words…whoever ‘they’ are anyways…
