Albuquerque's premier and critically acclaimed comedy improv troupe and the city's only ongoing professional comedy improv show. Improv theatre at its best, everything is based on audience suggestions, which means every performance is completely different. It’s a polished, fast-paced, quick-witted good time that is sure to leave you laughing and wanting more. Natalie Kossar has been performing with the show since February 2016.
The audience shouts out a title of a musical that has never been performed before. Accompanied by a full band, the first title that the group hears becomes the title and theme for that evening’s completely improvised 60 minute musical that BWC creates on the spot. Natalie Kossar played shows with Baby Wants Candy from 2012 through 2015; including home shows at the Apollo Theatre and touring shows throughout the Midwest.
A high-energy format helmed by a referee and rocked by a keyboard player, the blue Downtown Chicago Bosses and the red team compete for laughter and applause, completely based on audience suggestions and willing volunteers, to create on-the-spot scenes, games and songs. Natalie Kossar was on the CSz Chicago roster from 2010 through 2015, and also served as the Director of Signature Shows.
The hilarious Kates provide an intimate night of comedy different from anything you'll see at a typical Chicago club or late night bar. From darkly amusing musical number, the awkward art of clowning, absurd solo performances, and uproarious stand up comedy, The Kates continue to crack up new audiences at several venues, including The Book Cellar and The Laugh Factory. Natalie Kossar performed solo artistry and stand-up comedy with The Kates for several years in Chicago.
The iO theater both has performances of, and teaches improvisational comedy. It was founded in the 1980's by Del Close and Charna Halpern. iO concentrates on long-form improvisational structures. The iO's signature piece is The Harold. Between 2007 and 2010, Natalie Kossar played on three Harold Teams; Airbourne!, Baby Problems, and FireCup.
