Why did the chicken cross the road? To get to the other side.
If you want better jokes than that this weekend, Penn State is hosting its 6th annual improv festival, RAWR 666.
Full Ammo, Penn State’s only improvisational comedy group, organizes this annual comedy event. With the hope to entertain Penn State students, collaborate with other college improv troupes and professional teams, RAWR is some of the best free, live entertainment at Penn State. Yes — free.
RAWR 666 will start on Friday, March 31 from 6p.m.-11p.m. and continue throughout the day on Saturday, April 1 in 102 Forum. Valley can’t think of a better way to spend April Fools Day.
“Full Ammo has worked incredibly hard to bring the students here a huge assembly of different comedians from other schools and even some professionals from all over the country!” says Lauren Barron, a comedian and Penn State student from Full Ammo.
You can see improvisational comedy performances from 13 professional teams, including troupes from New York City, as well as nine college teams including troupes from Penn State, Carnegie Mellon and Georgetown.
“Anybody who’s anybody is going to be there. There’s no better chance at Penn State to see incredible live comedy than RAWR, including some of the best performers New York City has to offer,” says treasurer of Full Ammo, Chris Collier.
For anyone interested in performing, audience members are welcome to perform in hour long JAMs on Friday, March 31 at 7p.m.
Collier says, “Feel free to come and go as you please, and anyone can take the stage to test their funny during the JAMs!”
Anyone looking for a good time, a laugh or just something to do this weekend without breaking the bank, RAWR 666 is the place to be.
