Comedy Sportz

The preparation of final exams, papers, presentations, and moving out of the dorms made my last two weeks of class stressful and anxiety producing. When I heard about the Comedy Sportz show, I was intrigued and skeptical to know more about what it was. I was not disappointed and thankful that I decided to go to the Comedy Sportz show. The show was performed on Saturday, May 6, in the Frey theater at 7 p.m. The actors were from St. Kate’s and St. Thomas. The referee was a well-known Comedy Sportz host: Michael Bruckmueller.
