About Our Shows

Here, you’ll find a little more information about what we do on stage!

So, how does this work?

With improv, we need your suggestions! You might be asked to give a location, an emotion, or just a random word. Don’t be afraid to shout out the first thing that comes to your head! You will always be prompted before it’s suggestion time. The host will take an idea, and the players will then make it up on-the-spot!

If I have a funny idea during the show, do I shout it out whenever?

We prefer you didn’t. We have specific times to get suggestions during a show, and during the rest of performance, we ask for minimal talking and lots of laughing. Side conversations can be distracting to the performers and the rest of the audience. Our shows require the same etiquette as any other theatrical performance.

When are shows?

Shows are Friday and Saturday nights at 8pm and 10pm. We also have an all-ages show Saturdays at 6:30pm.

How much are tickets?

Tickets are $10, or $5 for children or students with a valid student id. We also offer a group rate for parties of 6 or more.

What about refunds?

We have a no refund policy. If for some reason you are unable to make it to a show, we can transfer that credit to a future show.

Who can attend shows?

All of our shows, except Family Game Night, are rated 17+. Our all-ages show is every Saturday at 6:30pm.

Can my younger kids come to the show?

Sure! They can come to Family Game Night, every Saturday at 6:30pm.

What about my baby?

So cute! Our policy is no babies during the 17+ shows, but babies are welcome at our all ages show. We ask that a fussy kiddo be taken to the restaurant next door during the show.

Where should I sit?

The closer to the stage, the better! The best seats are the front row. There is a correlation between how close you are and how much you enjoy our shows.

Do you pick on audience members?

No! What we do isn’t like what an insult comedian does.

Is there an intermission?

We do have an intermission during our 8pm shows. For our 6:30pm and 10pm shows we do not.

Can I get food or drinks?

You can order soda and grown up drinks from the bartender in the theater, or you can grab drinks and/or food next door at Green Room Burgers and Beer before the show or during intermission. Their food is fantastic!

What should I do if I have a big group coming to show?

We recommend taking advantage of our group rate and buying tickets online. For groups of 6 or more, we will make sure to hold seats for you. However, if your group has not arrived 5 minutes before show time and there is a demand for seats, we will have to give the seats away.

If I am enjoying a birthday or special event, can I let you know?

Yes! You can email tickets@kcimprov.com or tell the box office to pass the information on to that night’s producer.
