Improv Comedy Troupe TANTRUM Is Talking Out of Turn

The Kansas City Public Library welcomes the return of improv comedy troupe TANTRUM and its unique style of long-form improvisational performance for a series called Talking Out of Turn on Wednesday, February 18, at 7 p.m. in the Truman Forum at the Plaza Branch, 4801 Main St.

Taking suggestions, TANTRUM spins impromptu skits that generate a succession of spontaneous scenes aimed at giving the audience fits (of laughter). Every performance is different, because everything is improvised – and anything can happen. This is the first of three installments in the Talking Out of Turn series.

Veterans of the local improvisational comedy scene, the TANTRUM cast includes Trish Berrong, Pete Calderone, Nikki Dupont, Rob Grabowski, Megan Mercer, Michael Montague Jr., and Josh Steinmetz. They will be joined by author Kevin Dilmore, a special guest whose monologues will serve as inspiration for TANTRUM skits.

Admission is free. Call 816.701.3407 to indicate your interest in attending or you may RSVP online.
