Artistic Director, 2011 - Present

Kasey has been improvising since he and fellow high school ne'er-do-well Mike Barnett started the Devil Mountian Improv League in early 1997. Kasey came to BATS in the Spring of the same year, taking his first ever improv class from Barbara Scott. In the Fall of 2000 Kasey was invited to join the BATS Main Stage Company--an invitation he gladly accepted.

Kasey has performed with BATS Sunday Players, The Belfry (BATS former Thursday night ensemble), and the Long-Form groups People of Earth! and Improv Factory Outlet. In addition to being a coach with BATS Improv School, Kasey is original cast member of The A**hole Monologues.
