Jest Serendipity Improv is Las Vegas' longest running improv comedy show. With Second City officially closing their doors in August of 2008, Jest Serendipity now stand without any competition in the realm of Improv Comedy. Stand-up comedy clubs an be anywhere in Las Vegas, but the unique demands of improv put it in a class of entertainment all by itself. Jest Serendipity Improv is the only comedy show in Las Vegas that can meet those demands.

Jest Serendipity formed in early 2000 with a handful of aspiring theater actors and comedians. The original eight members had various backgrounds and exposure to comedy but none of them had a significant amount of experience in improv, except for one. Nicolas "Kopy" Kopatich was already a seasoned performer in the improv and stand up world: Comedy Sports in multiple cities, Jokerz Comedy Club and being featured in several commercials, he assisted the performers into harnessing what they all do best. They gained surprising popularity after their debut that same year, and since then, Jest Seredipity has performed hundreds of shows in multiple venues across the Las Vegas Valley.

Jest Serendipity's act is largely their own unique brand of comedy, most comparable to the traditional improv, but adding the excitement and unpredictability of a sporting event to create a bigger impact with the audience. Two teams of comedians compete for audience applause, creating unrehearsed and unscripted material right on the sport from audience participation and suggestions. The shows are hosted and monitored by a comedic referee, usually "Kopy" himself. This sport-like atmosphere helps the audience get very invested in a particular performer or team, giving them someone to root for. Because the audience provides all the suggestions for the skits and games, no two shows can ever be the same.

Saturdays, 7 p.m. until May 28
