A Note from Kirk~

For sometime now Marcus Sams and I have wanted to collaborate with a workshop at Moment Improv Theater in SF.  I’m thrilled to announce I’ll be joining his “Two Play Improv Extravaganza” as a guest artist on the evening of Oct 12th AND I’ll be teaching this 1 Day Workshop on Sat the 13th!!! 
San Francisco stole my heart long ago. Excited to be returning and can’t think of a better way to be doing it than with the amazing improv skills, passion and support of Marcus Sams and his Moment Improv Theater.

Looking forward to being with you all for the performance and the workshop!!


Always in the Art,

But Wait… There’s MORE!

Kirk is thrilled and just a little bit frightened to perform improv comedy with the nationally recognized improv duo, Liss n’ Sams. They recently headlined the Out of Bounds Comedy Festival in Austin, TX and the San Francisco Improv Festival. They will be doing their two man comedy act with the addition of Kirk Baltz!

Who knows what will happen? No one. But if you come to the show you will at least know what happens. Click on the image below for tickets!
