Now in its 16th year, the Kansas City Improv Festival is proud to be one of the longest running improv festivals in the country. We had the pleasure of hosting one of the very first improv festivals in 1994, and since then have welcomed Del Close, Mick Napier, and TJ Jagodowski. More recently we’ve had Joe Bill, Jill Bernard, SuperEgo, Susan Messing, and KC native Jason Sudeikis on our stages.  


Formed from the beautiful mashup of the names and prodigious talent of longtime friends and members Robert Dassie, Rich Talarico, and Craig Cackowski, Dasariski hails from iO West in Los Angeles where they consistently play to sold-out houses who love their signature “slow-play” style of improv. 
Cook County Social Club 
Hailed as one of Chicago's best improv troupes, this debonair group of four well-bred gentlemen are trained in both improv and sketch comedy, and between them have such illustrious credits as Saturday Night Live, Comedy Central, iO Improv, and the Second City.  
Are you excited? You should be! Get your TICKETS, and prepare to laugh.
This year, we are pleased as punch to announce our headliners:
