In February 2016, improvisers Luke Watson (Founder/Artistic Director of LOL Nashville) and Scott Field (Co-founder of Improv Nashville/Artistic Director of Music City Improv), concluded their year-long search for a permanent space to serve as the epicenter for local comedy. They partnered to open a comedy club that serves all comedic art forms: sketch, improv, stand-up, comedic plays, etc.
The Third Coast Comedy Club took over the former Imogene and Willie production space at 1310 Clinton Street in Marathon Village, a breeding ground for creatives. The theater serves as an outlet for the wealth of comedic talent in Nashville. The bar serves as a place of community for locals and comics throughout the week.
Alongside the nightly programming and weekend Main Stage shows, the club includes a training center, offering courses ranging from improvisation to sketch to stand-up for locals and tourists alike.
WE’RE CLOSED FOR “INTERMISSION”
For the safety of our community, students, staff, and performers, Third Coast will be cancelling all performances at Third Coast Comedy Club and The Loft at Third Coast through April 30th and postponing all classes until May.
While Third Coast is temporarily closing our in-person, physical programming, think of it as a who-knows-how-long intermission. We’re doing our part to help and will continue to follow the advice of health care professionals at all levels of government and make updates to this page as they come.
As with theaters and small businesses across the country, this is going to create some challenges. On top of our fixed expenses, we have payroll for our incredible team that make the Third Coast community thrive. We’ve made a commitment to continue to pay them during this intermission as long as we can.
Our talented community has already begun crafting some exciting new ways to keep producing comedy. More details to come.
Thank you for your presence and your support. You’ll be hearing from us, and we hope to see you soon.
