Punchline! Auditions This Weekend

From Eli Meixler ’13:
Do you like stand-up comedy, storytelling, or just turning bad middle-school experiences into mirth and laughter? Then audition for Punchline!, Wesleyan’s only Stand-up comedy collective! No experience necessary, just an interest in story-writing, story-telling, and comedy and a willingness to work with other students to workshop and develop an act for 2 shows later in the semester. Bring 2-3 minutes of of material–a personal story, or a series of jokes or observations. No need for a cohesive “act,” though those are always appreciated (and as always, so are costumes).
What: Punchline! Stand-Up Comedy Collective Auditions
Where: Downey House (corner of High and Court Streets), Room 100 (basement)
When: Sat., Sept. 15 and Sun., Sept. 16. 2:00-4:00 PM
Cost: 15 minutes of your time and your sense of self-worth
