Fruit Paunch, Columbia’s oldest improv comedy group, is having auditions tonight in the Broadway SkyLounge at 8 pm.
A few things:
- Fruit Paunch. Wouldn’t it be fun it it were called Fruit Pun-ch? Meta! And yet, not so!
- Wouldn’t it also be fun if an equally pun-loving (!) rival comedy troupe formed and called themselves The Original Kings of Comedy? Kings. Because this is Columbia, and there was that other consortium of comedians with the same name that included Bernie Mac. And also it would be ironic because they wouldn’t be the “Original” kings of anything. Because Fruit Paunch would have beaten them to the punch. Or should we say paunch?
