William Paterson University Presents a Comedy Improv Show on December 5

William Paterson University will present a comedy improve show on Wednesday, December 5, at 8 p.m. in the University’s Martini Teleconference Room in Hobart Hall. Admission is free.

The Comedy Improv show is based on Comedy Sportz, a franchise of independently owned businesses licensed by World Comedy League, Inc. In this interactive performance, teams compete against each other to create the funniest, most clever improvs. The audience will suggest circumstances for the teams to act out. Teams are scored on how well they implement the suggestions of a panel of professional comedians. This show originates from Professor Elizabeth Stroppel’s Comedy: Improvisation in Performance class.
