St. Louis and Kansas City couldn’t be further apart in distance within the state, but they couldn’t be any closer in their love of improv.

This week’s line-up: Burnside, Improvised Stand-Up and Controlled Burn!

Each Burnside performance showcases the joy, love and commitment each member brings to the team. With an emphasis on group mind and agreement, unique themes based on one audience suggestion are explored. Every member of Burnside plays with belief that improv is at its best when they set egos and agendas aside and do everything in their power to make their teammates look brilliant.

Cody Lindenburger is both an improviser and a standup comedian. He will blend those two seemingly close but also very distant worlds together as he uses your suggestions to do Improvised Stand-Up. No script. Just jokes.

When two members of Hot Stix break off to become an equally ferocious comedic force, just slightly smaller, then you have a Controlled Burn.
