Laugh a Little…

Our student, Anna, discovers the funniest group on campus…

Over the weekend I learned something about UMBC that I never knew: we have an improv comedy group. Cool, huh? One of my friends invited me to join her at one of the shows, so that’s how I found myself sitting in a lecture hall on Friday night (not that it felt a lecture hall!).

I don’t feel like I can rightly explain the show, so instead I’m going to let some videos and pics do that part. I will say that there’s some audience participation (to provide suggestions—you don’t get drafted to be laughed at, don’t worry), and that the room was packed. The improv group, the Dog-Collar Comedy Troupe, is a team of about 10  students who get together to perform—you guessed it!—improvisational comedy. And it’s great. So without further ado…

A roomful of bored people waiting for the show to begin.

That man is on a television daytime show explaining how to cook beef stroganoff. His hands, however, are a bit tied up…and a friend is lending him a hand—or two. (And said friend may or may not be having a lot of fun smearing food on his face in the process…)
