Could this Dangerous, Seductive Comedy-Monster Change Your Life?

After SOLD OUT runs in New York, London, Edinburgh, Chicago, as well as a plethora of 5-star reviews from around the globe, Red Bastard comes to Kansas City's Kick Comedy Theater to unleash a pompous theatrical master class in this critically-acclaimed show.

"Very, Very Funny" – NEW YORK TIMES

Experience this exquisite monstrosity as Red Bastard delicately leads you through a no-holds-barred show demanding to know nothing less than the existential query, "Who the hell do you think you are?" Lines will be crossed and laughs will be had in this interactive feast of biting wit, mischievous improvisation, and physical prowess.

"Jaw dropping symphony of gasps and giggles…I am still tingling at the memory. And I will be going back for more." THE SCOTSMAN / Kate Copstick *****

He is not man or woman; he is not human or animal. He has come to play with us, pretending that he is a teacher of the theater of life. Red Bastard spreads throughout the audience like a big red virus, daring us to impress him with beautiful movements and vocal exercises of our own. He demands that we be "bigger," that we "go beyond." He commands, "Risk, and you are rewarded." The audience finds itself changing seats, yelling, posing, singing—we are pulled into participating, and the consequences of not participating ("Eek! He might touch me!") feel delightfully dire.

"...Bizarrely hilarious...has to be seen to be believed.... he cruelly assumes we love him and want to be like him, which by the end of his set turns out to be true – a cult favorite" TIME OUT - NEW YORK

Audiences should be prepared for anything to happen in this interactive show, in which Red Bastard engages the audience in master class of raw conversation, provocations, traps, rewards, and catch 22's— encouraging risk and personal discovery.

"Utterly vital and riveting from start to end" TIME OUT- LONDON
