“The Hot Karl” improv to end June 14 after 15 years

After 15 years of making thousands of people laugh, the popular Saturday midnight improv show “The Hot Karl,” called a cross between “Monty Python” and Don Rickles, will close June 14 at the ComedySportz Theatre.

Founding member Frank Caeti (“Mad TV”) credits “The Hot Karl” with “some of the most creative, uninhibited improv I have ever done.  That, and the constant fear that some drunk guy might storm the stage and try to beat us up.”

The loyal “Hot Karl” troupers are Maria Caceres, Tim Chidester, Katie Dufresne, Kat Gotsick, Nathan Jansen, Eric Lindberg, Bethany Remely, Randy Smock and Zach Thompson.

The June 14 performance will be hosted by Josh Breit (ComedySportz alum).

Tickets are $10; purchase by calling 773/549-8080 or www.ticketmaster.com.
