Founded in 2003, Barbeque Kitten is an improv and sketch comedy troupe, created and run by Bradley University students. Meet its 10 current members…
aka Kastrator Kitten
JUNIOR, ACCOUNTING/ECONOMICS MAJOR
Barbeque Kitten has been an outlet for me in two ways: it’s a great way to temporarily forget about schoolwork, and it satisfies my constant hunger for attention.
aka Krastinator Kitten
SOPHOMORE, BIOCHEMISTRY/PSYCHOLOGY MAJOR
With BBQK, I can expend my creative energy between one science lab and the next.
aka Kurious Kitten
SENIOR, THEATER PERFORMANCE MAJOR
Barbeque Kitten has always been my favorite place to play. It’s where
I come to be a kid.
aka Komplex Kitten
SOPHOMORE, THEATER PERFORMANCE MAJOR
BBQK allows me to explore all kinds of character options, along with opening up areas of myself!
aka Klatter Kitten
SENIOR, THEATRE PERFORMANCE MAJOR
I am a loud, sleep-deprived, smoothie-loving actor who’s always laughing. I’ve been in the Barbeque Kitten troupe for four years, and I will continue with improv after.
aka Koffin Kitten
JUNIOR, MECHANICAL ENGINEERING MAJOR
Barbeque Kitten is just a super-great way to have fun with your friends.
aka Khordy Kitten
SOPHOMORE, ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING MAJOR
Being the musician for Barbeque Kitten has been a fantastic way for me to blend together my interests in music and theater. It also allows me to temporarily forget about the overwhelming amount of engineering homework I have to do.
aka Kwirky Kitten
JUNIOR, ENGLISH MAJOR
No matter what’s going on in my life, BBQK reminds me of two things: laughing is a cure-all and goofing off doesn’t just have to be for kids, especially in the right company.
aka Kaiserin Kitten
SOPHOMORE, SECONDARY EDUCATION/HISTORY MAJOR
I am the manager and treasurer of BBQK. I don’t perform, but I enjoy being a part of the troupe and am glad that the kittens accept me as the unfunny person I am.
aka Kranium Kitten
JUNIOR, THEATER PERFORMANCE MAJOR
I tried to get into Kitten as a way to help my standup comedy aspirations. But once I stopped being a jerk to them and actually started listening, I met some of my best friends. We get to make people laugh together, and there’s nothing better than that. a&s
