“Comediennes,” A Radio Drama Behind the Scenes of Comedy
This week Kansas City Actors Radio Theatre premieres “Comediennes,” an original story by KC’s own Tosin Morohunfola!
When two performers start chatting during the mid-show break of their improv set, they end up getting very personal about comedy in this radio drama drawn from back-stage experiences with improvisers from across the country.
Featuring the talents of Justin Barron, Tosin Morohunfola (playwright), Katie Karel, Amber McKinnon, and Director Shon Ruffin with Sound Design by Matt Barnes and Sound Supervision by Mary Robinson.
Airing on KKFI 90.1 FM at noon on Friday in Kansas City and available for download everywhere 24/7 after broadcast!

Supporting KCAT and the CARES Act in 2021
Like any of the many non-profit arts organizations that have been impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak, KCAT needs your financial support if you’re able to give it.
What you may not know is that newly-passed government stimulus also extends the tax benefits of the CARES Act into 2021! When you donate any amount (up to $300 in total donations for individuals, and up to $600 for those filing jointly), you will be eligible to claim a deduction of equal amount in addition to the standard deduction. For our donors who itemize, there are even greater potential benefits. As always, please speak to your tax advisor for details.
