Students share laughs at Chatham Improv Night

On Friday January 17, students took the stage of Eddy Theater as drug dealers sailing in Jamaica, camel riders in Maryland, and a proud dog owner during Chatham Improv Night. Sponsored by the Fickes Residence Hall Council and hosted by Indigo Baloch, the event was based on the popular improvisational comedy show “Whose Line is it Anyway?”

The contestants participated in different games based on prompts read aloud by the host. The scene, characters, and dialogue were created on the spot by contestants or by audience suggestions. Anyone in the audience of 20 could participate. At the end of the night, audience members voted for the winner of “funniest” contestant.
McKenzie Haskins took home the grand prize, a $25 Chipotle gift card. “I literally just embarrassed myself for a couple of minutes and got a free gift card out of it,” said Haskins. Brianna Rice, Jessica Chow, and Erika Martin claimed second, third and fourth place, respectively.
