Comedy Show to Raise Money for Food Bank

UpChuckles, Truman’s stand-up comedy organization, will sponsor its first-ever faculty and staff show, March 24, with proceeds going to benefit the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri.

After being coached for weeks by UpChuckles comics, five Truman faculty and staff members will take the stage with some hilarious stand-up. Performers include: Dylan Phillips, annual fund officer; Jared Young, coordinator of summer academies and institutes/instructor of communication; Damon Pee, program advisor for organizational engagement and leadership; Christine Harker, professor of English; and University President Sue Thomas.

The show will take place at 8 p.m. March 24 at the Kirksville William Matthew Middle School auditorium, located at 1515 S. Cottage Grove Ave. Tickets are $5 and are available now in the Communication Department Office, Barnett Hall 1400. They will also be sold March 23-24 in the Student Union Building, and they will be available at the door the night of the performance.

The Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri distributes millions of pounds of food annually to partner agencies across a 32-county area.
