When the 13th KC Improv Festival returns to the Off Center
Theatre at Crown Center in September, Paul F. Tompkins (Comedy
Bang! Bang!, Best Week Ever) will once again improvise with his
friends from the popular LA-based podcast, SuperEgo. They'll
share the stage with new and returning acts from Chicago and KC.

At KCiF, everything—every character, scene and song—is created
on the spot based on the suggestions from the audience.
Headliners also include:
--Susan Messing and KC native Tim Mason (both from the Second
City Chicago Mainstage)
--Jill Bernard's award-winning one-woman improvised musical, --
--Drum Machine (Huge Theater, MN)
--Kevin Mullaney (iO Chicago) and Nick Armstrong (iO West)

In addition, Chicago troupes Pizza Party and Freud Droid will
perform, along with festival hosts, the KC Improv Company, and
local troupes ComedyCity, Babel Fish, Chess with Death, After
School Special, Down in Front, and Keith Plus One.

Since laughter is best when shared, KCiF will be donating a portion
of the proceeds to Operation: Show!, a year-old non-profit
organization that brings the improv experience to local high
school students.

KCiF runs September 6-14, with shows and classes at the Off
Center Theatre at Crown Center and the Theater in Westport.
Showtimes, ticket prices, class registration and more are online at


The KC Improv Company puts on multiple shows and classes at the
Kick Comedy Theater in Westport every week, and has performed
at comedy festivals in New York, Chicago, L.A., and around the
country. The group also offers corporate training, and their actor-
comedians perform at dozens of private events every year.
