Todd Lankton & the Family Band!
Missoula HomeGrown Comedy is proud to present the local comedy favorite, Todd Lankton & the Family Band! This live show features a mix of original sketches written by the performers, blended with improvisational comedy created on the spot with suggestions from the audience. “It’s like a fusion of Whose Line is it Anyway and Saturday Night Live – but actually live! And the audience gets to throw out suggestions, then sit back and enjoy the show.” says HomeGrown Comedy producer, John Howard.

Known for their irreverent attitude toward politics, religion, and Billings, Todd Lankton has performed at the Top Hat, the old Loft and the Crystal Theatre, where they will return, after a 3 year hangover. The ‘band’ (none of whom play instruments,) includes former Stensrud players, and locals Michael Beers and John Howard, who tour internationally as stand-up comedians.
