What you'll do

You will begin your night in the Historic West Bottoms. The West Bottoms is the old stockyard district in Kansas City that has been revitalized into a thriving cultural center. The West Bottoms is the best place to be for all things artistic in KC. When you come to a Barrel Show, you will be met at the front steps of the Historic Hobbs Building by one of the Barrel Guides. The Hobbs is an old manufacturing warehouse that has been redesigned to house almost 50 unique art studios. Inside, there are animation studios, sculptors, painters, tattoo artists, and The Barrel of the Bottoms. You will be guided up the stairs through the 100 year old building, learning bits about the building and studios as you pass. The stairs may wear you out, but Inside - magic awaits. The Barrel is unlike any venue you have seen. Each show features at least one drink with the price of admission. Once inside, we mingle and connect for a while. Then, the lights will drop and you will be lead by myself or my co-host through one of the most interesting nights you could imagine. Anything can happen and sometimes we're not even sure what will come next, but we will be in for the ride right along with you. We will continue to check in an guide you through the show after each act!

Stephen

Hello! I'm a stand-up comedian based in Kansas City and co-owner of Barrel of the Bottoms. I am the house feature at the KC Improv Comedy Club, and I have worked with Comics like Mark Normand, Karlous Miller, and Theo Von. I am joined by my co-owner and co-host, Cary McRoberts. Cary is a KC native that has lived all around the world. He is an all-around artist who can teach almost anything. We love Comedy and we love Kansas City which is why we opened The Barrel of the Bottoms in the Historic West Bottoms of KCMO. BOTB has quickly become one of the most unique experiences in Kansas City. The Barrel has created over 50 of the most intimate events in our region over the past three years. We are a small space designed to create shows that you won't find anywhere else in the country, and we may be hard to find, but that's half the fun.
