The month of May found Who’s the Ross? on a half-block road trip across the street to The Kit Kat Club. A world famous dance club, the Kit Kat featured a litany of nightly challenges, and an equal amount of pleasant surprises. Each show found a lot of success with larger guest line-ups (a comedian, celebrity & musical guest each program), and the looser the program was, the better. Being flexible was important (as it is in comedy AND dancing), as we played from two different separate stages: THEM! THE BAND! located on the back stage, and myself – the host, performing in the round on the main stage (complete with a stripper pole right in the middle).
The best part of our time performing away from our home at Dante’s, was that it gave the newer actors and writer’s on our staff a chance to feel what it was like to tour. Even though it was only a half a block away from our usual Tuesday night residency, the Kit Kat gave as many challenges, if not more, than a road gig would. Different load-in time, different staff assisting you (bar, sound, etc – in this case “etc” was 6-8 dancers), and a different audience. 8 years after my first (solo) comedy tour from the West Coast, to East, and back, I got to relive that touring experience with our biggest WTR crew yet. It was exciting (and exhausting) to share this experience with my team…but hey, that’s the road life, baby!
