If the torrential rain, hurricane force wind and the general blah-ness of the weather this past week has got you down, then it might be time you put a little laughter into your life. The AS television station KVIK has just the thing to split your sides.
The premier of You Would, a comedy sketch show produced by KVIK will be showing at 8 p.m. (doors at 7:30) on Dec. 2 in Artnzen 100.
According to Nick Andrews, You Would's executive producer, the show is the longest running program KVIK produces. Beginning in spring of 2007, new episodes of both live and taped sketches have been coming out quarterly.
“It's about fifty-fifty live and taped,” Andrews said.
This episode there are 7 taped sketches and 5 that will be performed live.
“Last year we had some stand up…this [season] is just entirely us doing our own sketches,” Andrews said. “We're at the point that we have enough talent that we can do entirely our own material.”
Andrews stressed the importance of supporting student programming. KVIK is made up entirely of students, with one coordinator and countless volunteers.
Andrews also noted the quality of the programming.
“A lot of us are planning on doing this in the future [as careers],” he said. “And we're good.”
And if all of that wasn't enough to get you interested, Andrews has an incentive for students.
“I can say with 100 percent certainty that anyone that shows up on December 2nd will see me in drag.”
