Kansas City based comic David Naster is still performing stand up in comedy clubs coast to coast and on some of the world’s finest cruise ships. But increasingly, he is in hot demand as a healthcare speaker. David Naster is considered an authority on the healing power of humor. He’s written several books on the subject, including You Just Have To Laugh. Now he has produced a new documentary that is currently making the rounds on the film festival circuit.
The Local Show .
Five thousand sea creatures, including sharks and stingrays, are finding a new home in Kansas City, as the new $15 million SEA LIFE Aquarium finally opens its doors tomorrow at Crown Center. There are 30 display tanks including a massive ocean tank with a walk through underwater tunnel where visitors are surrounded by fish and sharks. A Legoland Discovery Center is being built next door, but that won’t open for a few more weeks.
KCPT partnered with the new SEA LIFE Aquarium on a journalism contest where we invited high school broadcasting students to cover the arrival of the fish to their new home in Kansas City. Using the theme “The Fish Are Coming,” ten high school teams put together a two minute news account about the sea creatures arriving at the aquarium.
The winning high school team would have their report featured on The Local Show and we are pleased to announce the winner is…Park Hill South High School.
Winners of the SEA LIFE Kansas City Aquarium and KCPT Video Journalism Contest: Park Hill South High School and the reporting team of Sung Huh, Jacob Orlowski and Raymond Hadlock. Congratulations!

A year ago, most of us were still trying to wrap our heads around the terms “Sporting Kansas City” and “LiveStrong Sporting Park.” They were unfamiliar, and some would say even bizarre phrases, describing our re-named professional soccer team and its, then, still un-built new stadium.
All the changes seem to have worked. Rave reviews poured in for the new venue in KCK. The team made the playoffs. Attendance went up 84 percent. Merchandise sales went up 475 percent. And team TV ratings went up more than 100 percent. How’s that for a turnaround?
This week, we’re joined by one of the team’s top star’s and biggest goal scorers, Kei Kamara.
Here is a look a look at his journey from Sierra Leone to Kansas City and his return to play for Africa’s national team:
