Improv in the Press

First The Pitch covers Improv at The Westport Coffeehouse:

Poke, Babel Fish and Improv Thunderdome This third round of Improv Thunderdome, the three-shows-for-one-cover comedy competition, should again demonstrate to Kansas City just how daring, diverse and unpredictable the art of improv can be. Go at 7 p.m., and you'll be treated to two of the best new troupes in town: Poke, the improvised duet between first-class performers Trish Berrong and Tommy Todd; and Babel Fish, Joe Henley and Nathan Stewart's brainy, allusive, theater-of-the-absurd spectacular, which feels like it should earn you college credit.

Then the Star covers it:

Scriptease, the winners of the second round of Thunderdome, are (from left) Rene Boudreaux, coach Rob Grabowski, Andrew Brant, Drew Davidson, Tommy Todd and Clayton Ingram.

The Improv Thunderdome 2.0 holds its third round Saturday at the Westport CoffeeHouse, 4010 Pennsylvania. The scheduled competitors are Burnin’ Sternums (Trish Berrong, Pete Calderone, Keith Curtis, Rob Grabowski and Nick Rigoli), Fluffer Nutter (Niffer Honeycutt and Jessica Robins) and Type O Positive (Jeremy Danner, Tricia Davenport, Timmy Marks, Ryan Seymour and John Robison).

The show begins at 9 p.m. The winning team will join Some Technical Difficulties and Scriptease in the finals Sept. 27.

Babel Fish (with Joe Henley, Nathan Stewart and guest Jared Brustad) and Poke (Berrong and Tommy Todd) will also do a show at 7 p.m.

Then, in the star's upcoming events list under Theater/Comedy:

Comedy City, Roving Imp, and Improv Thunderdome are all mentioned.
