The Comedy Club (Comedy)

Summary

Western's number one spot for comedy since our ratification in 2005 and near de-ratification 2005 to now! We have a weekly Improv meeting, where we learn skills and perform, as well as Write Club, where we write and perform sketches and stand-up comedy!


Description

We're the funniest group on campus! We do any and all things funny, improv, sketches, stand up, goofs, you name it! We've had a dedicated group of comedians for years now, and hold weekly improv meetings with anywhere from twenty to fifty people! We have two main groups: Improv Club: We do improv at weekly meetings, both Canadian Improv Games-style and Whose Line Is It Anyways-style. If you did improv at high school, or if you're interested in learning good performance skills then come on down! No previous experience required. We've been asked to do workshops for business clubs on improv skills too! It's a great way to work on staying cool under pressure. We also do shows! Write Club: This is where the written word gets awesome. Here we write sketches, videos, stand-up and anything else. It's a smaller, laid back and packed with hillarity. Looking to workshop a short play you've written? Punch up a sketch? Make a hillarious YouTube video? WE DO IT ALL. It's a great place to practice creative writing and collaborative stuff. The best part? We have a huge show where we put it all on! The Improv Team: This is a dedicated group of students who represent Western in competitions around Southern Ontario and Quebec against other schools (Such as McGill, Brock and UofT). We hold try-outs around the second week of October, and have a final team of 7-9 people. We do plenty of training sessions beforehand though, and have taken on people who did improv at high school and people who just started. Come on out! CHALLENGE ACCEPTED! Not only are we the funniest club on campus, we're also the awesomest club on campus. AT EVERYTHING. That's right! We think we can beat other clubs AT THEIR OWN ACTIVITY! We're ready to take on anyone in a friendly competition. If your club is looking for a special event or if you think you can take us on then email uwocomedy@gmail.com and get ready, because CHALLENGE ACCEPTED. COMEDY@CAMPUS: We also work extensively with Huron, and King's to come together and put on amazing shows. For the last two years we've held Improv Wars to try and find out who takes the title of BEST IMPROVERS EVER, and we look forward to doing even more!
