Panic! @ the Barrel w/ Kris Pierce

  • Barrel of the Bottoms 1427 W 9th St suite 405 Kansas City, MO 64101 United States (map)

There's one thing we know fans of comedy will be doing on 4/20: laughing. If you're looking for somewhere to do that, the Barrel is hosting TWO amazing acts, Panic! and comedian Kris Pierce.

Panic! hosted by James Doyle and Dante Powell is a stand up comedy show bringing you the highs and lows of comedy as they project random topics and ideas (from the mundane "Tell Us About Your First Kiss?" to the obscure "What Would A Katt Williams Oscar Acceptance Speech Sound Like?") onto a screen for performers to make up material about on the spot. Be it stories, jokes, interpretive dances, or anything in between, the show treats the audience to a brand new experience every time, as prepared material is NOT ALLOWED!

Our headliner, Kris Pierce has quickly cemented himself as a powerfully unique voice in the American comedy community. When not opening for the likes of Kyle Kinane, Sam Tallent, and Sean Patton, Kris has managed to make his hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas a comedy destination by sheer force of will. Alongside his best friend, Buddy, he co-hosts the wildly successful Death Metal Dicks podcast, a show about heavy metal, comedy, and murder. While most metalheads are soft, Kris is a legitimate threat on and off the mic: a black belt in Jiu Jitsu and tours the country refereeing tournaments for the North American Grappling Association.
