The Kansas City Improv Company co-director Tim Marks takes spontaneous silliness seriously. "We want our audiences to know they’ll get excellent improv . . . Not just funny people screwing around. This is our art form. We work hard to be good." With help from local troupes such as LSR and Babel Fish Improv, Marks and the other wise guys open up a can of adults-only improv at their Kick Comedy Shows every Saturday at 8 p.m. Every third Saturday, the Kick Comedy Theater stages the Underground Throwdown, an uproarious cage match that pits the off-the-cuff comedians against challengers from the fields of sketch comedy and standup. Audience votes determine who takes home the trophy, a statue of a king in a cup known as The King in the Cup.

Though KC Improv Company has developed a breezy rapport over its 12 years together as a troupe, the mirth-masters also specialize in inspiring that confidence in first-timers. All Play classes every Saturday from noon to 1:30 p.m. are open to improv students of all experience levels, and Marks' Ace classes cater to veterans. The crew's improv methods are inspired and developed from such companies as Second City and iO Theater (formerly Improv Olympics), and the annual KC Improv Festival has drawn appearances from laughter luminaries such as Paul F. Tompkins and proud SNL star and Kansas native Jason Sudeikis.

Though The Kansas City Improv Company sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

It was lots of fun!
Katrina P. · August 27, 2012
Get there early so you can find seating easily, especially if you're with a group. It was a packed house when we went and it looked as tho several parties had to split up to be seated. Otherwise the show was great and I really enjoyed it.
