Nita Cherise

Nita Cherise

In 2013, after some encouragement from fellow improv classmates at the La Nuit Comedy Theater in New Orleans, Nita Cherise found herself on stage at the theater’s weekly open mic. Nita’s easy, conversational style invites you in as she recounts her experiences as a sheltered, homeschooled, preacher’s daughter.

In addition to performing stand-up, Cherise is a voice actor who can be heard in the award-winning short film August, directed by Caitlyn Greene. She is also co-host of “Rappin Atlanta”, a podcast recapping episodes of Donald Glover’s FX show “ATLANTA”.
