When you think of KC, you think jazz, BBQ, beer and—if
you’re a comedy fan—one of the longest running, most
respected improv comedy festivals in the country.
This September 7-15 at Crown Center’s Off Center Theatre,
Paul F. Tompkins (Mr. Show, Best Week Ever, There Will Be
Blood) and Colin Hanks (Dexter, Orange County, Band Of
Brothers) help kick off the 12th Kansas City Improv Festival:
two weekends of performances, parties and classes featuring
the funniest acts from Kansas City and far beyond.
At KCiF 2012, everything—every character, scene and song—
is created on the spot based on the suggestions you give to
the performers. Along with Tompkins and Hanks, festival
headliners include top-rated LA podcasters, SuperEgo;
improv festival favorites BASSPROV (Chicago) and Twinprov
(Oklahoma); and Don Tremendous, a trio of alumni from
Chicago’s Second City Mainstage.
A record number of troupes applied to perform at this year’s
fest. Shows will feature performers from Boston, DC, Austin
and half a dozen of KC’s best groups. The out-of-town
experts will share improv secrets at workshops available
to the public.
And for the first time, 15 percent of
all proceeds benefit Gilda’s Club, which provides a free
support community for adults and children diagnosed with
cancer, along with their families and caring friends. Named
for Gilda Radner—an improviser best known as one of
Saturday Night Live’s original “Not Ready for Prime Time
Players”—it’s a cause close to everyone.
KCIF is presented by local favorites, the KC Improv Company.
Tickets range in price from $6-$20 and are available
at http://kcimprovfestival.com, where you’ll also find breaking news
about shows and classes taught by guest artists.
