Faculty and Staff Comedy Show to Raise Money for Food Bank

UpChuckles, Truman’s standup comedy organization, will host its second annual faculty and staff show at 8 p.m. March 23 in Baldwin Hall Auditorium.

Tickets are $5 and all proceeds go to the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri, a regional disaster and hunger relief network that acquires and distributes millions of pounds of food annually to partner agencies across a 32-county area.

After being coached for weeks by UpChuckles comics, the faculty members will take stage with stand-up comedy. The judges for this year’s competition include: last year’s winner, Dylan Phillips; Lisa Simms, UpChuckles’ president; and President Sue Thomas.

Tickets will be sold in the Communication Department Office, Barnett Hall 1400, starting March 19. They will also be sold in the Student Union Building March 23 and at the door the night of the performance. For more information, contact Simms, lks5138@truman.edu, or Jay Self, selfjw@truman.edu.
