There are plenty of reasons to look forward to tonight's Christmasy show from Full Frontal Comedy
. First, salty comic pros such as Tina Morrison, Bill Case and the astonishing Shelly Stewart spike the holiday cheer with their upbeat rudeness. Second, by stewing together classic improv games with the ambitious long-form "Small Town," the troupe treats audiences to a wide range of improvisatory arts in a single show. Third, the $10 tickets are half off if you order through the Web site fullfrontalcomedy.org
. Finally, to set up their "Small Town" scenes, which will take up the show's entire second act, the comedians are soliciting audience suggestions with a doozy of a question, one worth thinking about ahead of time: "What type of event could change a small town forever?" May we suggest, "The mayor loves his wife too much"? Shout your best answers tonight in that gorgeous old church that houses the Olathe Community Theatre (500 East Loula in Olathe). Call 816-623-3557 for information. The show starts at 8 p.m.
