Our vision

Shaping a vision, delivering brand and creating world-class experiences

Jackalope Theater provides original comedy with shows and classes, in improv, musical improv, sketch, and storytelling. Providing an inclusive place for people of all ages to come together and celebrate playing and playfulness. This is what motivates us.  

Jason Watts started the company in 2013 with the Comedy Parlor in downtown Tulsa.  With a fun, exciting, and a bit stressful of a run, we learned an important lesson: we want to focus on improv and original comedy by providing a place for developing talent.  So in 2017, we rebranded as Rabbit Hole Improv and moved to a new location at 15th and Harvard Ave.

Over the next few years, our company grew to see multiple levels of classes and popular weekly shows.  When we had to close down in March of 2020, for Covid, we were just about to host our first comedy festival, Fest of Fools, and add a youth program.

A year and a half later, we leaped at getting back open, found a new place down the street, and hit the ground running. With a new mission and look, we felt that our name should reflect our new purpose, so we chose the mythical icon of Americana that stands above the grass proudly with a feisty, defiant attitude even, ready to scuffle with any set of ankles it sees, Jackalope Theater.
