Annie Butler started her career on the stage as a dancer, but has since discovered a love of comedy.
Kids on Campus, Washington University’s sketch comedy group, had their semesterly show in the Village Black Box March 3 and 4. Audiences were treated to 15 sketches, making for an hour and a half of comedic ingenuity.
When a line starts forming two hours before doors open for a show, it’s obvious that the show is something worth waiting for.
I walked into the Village Black Box for the Kids On Campus show and was hit by a wave of energy that would last throughout the night. As the crowd found their seats, the six musicians of the house band played loud, funky music.
This is the first installment in a series of hard-hitting exposes on Washington University student figures. This week I sat down with junior Matthew Herman, who opened for B.J. Novak at the Social Programming Board spring comedy show and performs with K.A.R.L. Improv! and Kids On Campus.
If you have not heard of Kids On Campus yet, let this be your first introduction, but certainly not your last. This year-old sketch comedy group formed last fall and has already made a name for itself in the Wash. U. performing arts community, bringing together writers, actors and musicians to put on a sketch show each semester.
It may sound daunting to put yourself out there and audition, practice or simply share your work with a new group of people. But I promise, it’s worth it—there is nothing quite like this community, and your college experience will be all the better for getting involved. But where do you start?
