The Movie Interruption: ROCKY IV

The Movie Interruption is a live comedy event that has been delighting audience across the country. Created by Doug Benson (Super High Me, Doug Loves Movies) and brought to Kansas City by Chris Cubas (One Of Comedy Centrals 9 "Comics To Watch" for 2013 and a finalist in NBC's "Stand UpNBC" talent search) The Movie Interruption will appeal to both comedy fans and movie lovers alike. Each Friday Chris is joined by some of the best comics from Kansas City and across the country as they sit in the front row with microphones and make hilarious jokes through movies both classic and otherwise. Each week a new movie, the jokes 100% improvised to guarantee a new hilarious show that will have you coming back again and again!

Stallone is back as Rocky Balboa, the heavyweight champion of the world (mostly Philladelphia) and now good friend of his one-time nemesis, Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers, who puts the Action in Jackson). Creed is brutally slaughtered in the boxing ring during a lop-sided exhibition match against the superhuman Russian boxer Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren, in the best roll of his career - one where he doesn't have to speak), an event that Rocky takes personally. Vowing revenge against Drago in the name of Creed (not the band) and the United States, Rocky is invited to the Soviet Union for a matchup and hires Creed's former manager (Tony Burton) to get him in shape. While Drago trains using the latest technology (its the 80's so a three pound cell phone and a portable word processor), Rocky's ascetic preparations are a low-key affair of carrying logs up hills through knee-deep Russian snow.
