Improv For Insomniacs-Desperate Measure’s 24-Hour Show

When was the last time you did anything for 24 hours straight? Huh?
This weekend, Desperate Measures, the only short-form improv comedy group on campus, is putting on their annual 24 HOUR SHOW.
Starting promptly at 9 PM this Friday (4/22), and going right through to 9 PM Saturday (4/23), DM will be performing hours upon hours of stitch-inducing, gut-busting comedy in the Nic Lounge. Featuring guest appearances from other comedy groups on campus, including Lunch Box at Midnight on Friday, and New Teen Force at 1 AM on Saturday morning. It’s a perfect way to enjoy your Friday night!
Mark “Goochenstein” Popinchalk ’13 says “All levels of sobriety welcome, feel free to camp out in the lounge with us. Anyone who stays for longer than 18 hours (75% of the show) gets a top-secret, highly coveted prize!”
