KYLE & KENDON
Kyle Gossett and Kendon Lacy are two best friends who have been performing improv together for over two years. They love to laugh, cry, sing, drink, eat, and do the things that everyone else do. What sets Kyle and Kendon apart, other than their racial difference, is their love of characters and storytelling that is not black or white, good or evil, but complex and human. Upon viewing a performance of Kyle and Kendon, Adolf Hitler said, "man. I'm really rethinking my political views."
Featuring: Kyle Gossett & Kendon Lacy

Phil (Droids), Lisa (Take One), and Kyle (Bardcore) are three improvisers with one mission: to prove that adults can play too. The stage is their sandbox, and they are the action figures. They play the stories in their imaginations, like the grown-ups they are.

SIRENS & PROPHETS
We are storytelling silliness; we are prophetic pretense. We are the Sirens of stories and the Prophets of progress. We are the things that go "woo" on a Saturday afternoon. We are mythical creatures that seduce unsuspecting souls into our narrative. We foretell the coming of great characters. We prophesy great profits (read: we're loaded). Stories and characters will be made alive right before your eyes with OKC's newest Harold Team. We are Sirens and Prophets. We hope you read this description with a Morgan Freeman voice.
Featuring: Kyle Gossett, Phil Geurin, Aaron Bushong, Jen Newman, Adam Harper, Merri Gambill, Corie Melaugh
