Brand new sketch comedy coming to Westport!
Fountain City Sketch is coming to the stage of the Kick Comedy Theater for a limited 3 performance run of their second all-new, all-original hour of sketch comedy. The troupe of comedians is composed of director Ben Auxier [pronounced: ock-sure], and 8 writers, 6 of whom also make up the cast.
Fountain City premiered its first show in April of 2014 to very positive response. Their energetic comedy stylings run the gambit from smart, to "blue," to totally absurd, taking influence from such sketch as Saturday Night Live, Key & Peele, Monty Python, Amy Schumer, and lesser-knowns such as Superego. The show will run August 2nd, 9th, and 16th at 10:00pm at the Kick Comedy Theater, which is located at 4010 Pennsylvania, between the Westport Coffee House and Green Room Burgers and Beer.
Each night's show will follow an 8:00 improv show, with themes and format varying week to week. The 8:00 show is 90 minutes and the 10:00 sketch show is 1 hour.
These shows contain some strong language and sexual themes, must be 17 to enter, 21 to drink. A selection of beer, wine, and liquor will be available for purchase right in the theater, and burgers, fries, and other menu items can be purchased at the Green Room and brought in.
The writers and actors of Fountain City Sketch have extensive involvement in KC Theatre and improv comedy, including the KC Repertory Theatre, the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival, the Living Room Theatre, and regular performances at the Kick with the KC Improv Company. Several members have performed in comedy festivals all over the country, including Chicago, Philadelphia, and New York. Some have played comedic roles in both local and national commercials.
