Bwog Video: Lady Business With Control Top

With the death grip of finals slowly tightening like a noose around our necks, Bwog felt it would be best to bring some humor and joy back to everyone’s lives. The talented and beloved Bwog Video team met up with Columbia’s all-female improv group, Control Top, for some laughs on Bwog and Graduation.

    @Anonymous control top is some of the funniest shit i’ve ever seen. this video didn’t do them justice bc the sound was shitty, and there’s a different dynamic with live performance. but straight up they have me doubled over laughing when i go to their shows.

      @Anna Hotter I agree. Unfortunately it is difficult to capture the comedic timing and spontaneity of a live performance like that on film. Even more reason to go to their show with Fruit Paunch!
