The Improv Shop
with special guest Tom George, UMSL Chancellor
UMSL Chancellor Tom George will join the comedic actors with The Improv Shop as special guest monologist for the May 15 performance.
This hilarious, Chicago-style improv will feature the Armando format. Chancellor Tom George will tell a personal story based on the evening's theme “Summer Vacation,” and the troupe will build a series of hysterical vignettes that interweave characters, plot, story and other details. St. Louis’ own Improv Shop is known for creating dynamic comedy improv.
