The Thursday Night Show at the Westport Coffeehouse Theater is a live Kansas City variety show featuring local comedians, musicians, and artists.
The April show features musical guest Khrystal., a multi-talented artist from Kansas City, who is quickly winning over the hearts of music lovers. With her melodic sounds, nostalgic rhyme schemes, and capturing presence, Khrystal. has been named as “one of the the city’s most talented purveyors of Black Girl Magic”. Her natural awkwardness and ability to embrace those quirks proves to work in her favor with the crowd every time.

When they aren't performing their signature format, the Cakewalk, members of U People can be seen playing at ComedyCity, the KC Improv Company, Crusty Mustard and other shows around town.
