Nift was easy to use and allowed me and a friend to watch a highly underrated comedy show for free at ImprovBoston! We both thoroughly enjoyed the show and would go back again. Nift is a great way to support local businesses and expose Boston explorers to otherwise unknown adventures!
Great show! It was super funny and everyone who worked there was very nice.
We had a great time! It was easy to get tickets, drinks were reasonably priced, and we laughed the whole time.

The show was AMAZING and hilarious and just so great. Highly recommended!!
I was a little nervous taking my 12 year old son, but he loved it. True, you never know what you're going to get, but I felt like they really tried to keep it classy. The actors were so talented and really engaged the audience. Friendly counter staff, no seat was bad. The only thing is that the lobby is pretty small, so it's crowded before the show.
Loved it! Would definitely recommend to a friend. Also really appreciate that they let me use the nift for a special valentines show.
It was great! Thoroughly enjoyed the show. Was laughing the whole time and drinks were reasonably priced!
Great night our filled with laughs!!
I loved this show, could not stop laughing even after the show. Guys are great!
Excellent show. Great community.
The show was a blast! Not quite as polished as others that I have seen but it was still full of good natured humor and the cast and crew were very entertaining.
I had a great time at ImprovBoston and hope to come back for more shows!
Haven't been to the show yet but the ticketing was simple

The Improv Boston Main stage show is great! They really play off the audience well and it creates a unique experience.

I had a great night at Improv Boston! The process for getting the tickets was very easy!
Had some difficulty redeeming my gift, because I didn't see on the voucher that I had to email the venue first - the print was so small! But customer service was wonderful and responded immediately, so it wasn't a problem at all.
Show was entertaining and the venue was convenient! First time to improv
I didn't understand how to redeem at first, so I clicked the wrong button on Nift's reminder email. After I emailed Nift, I got a response within a few hours with detail instructions. When I emailed the vendor - ImproveBoston, they also responded and confirmed within a few hours. I am very pleased!
I spent an incredible night. The team of ImprovBoston is so fun, incredibly funny and dynamic. I will come back very soon.
I've had a lot of fun exploring local businesses in the area. Thanks so much for making this a thing. I've found new eats and new entertainment places.
So fun! This was a great time. Thank you!
The show was extremely funny, I would definitely go back.
