AA Stand Up Comedy Club Header
The Stand Up Comedy Club is a group dedicated to offering opportunities for students to perform original stand up comedy routines in front of live audiences. The group is composed of students of varying experience levels who work together to write, edit, and perform original stand up comedy routines. Occasionally the club might host a traveling comedian who can share advice with members and grow the network of comedians around the country. Regularly, club members can be seen at local bars, comedy clubs, theaters, and campus events. To book the Stand Up Comedy Club for a show, where we typically do showcase style shows where a group of comedians does about 10 minutes or less each, please contact a club officer from our directory or email the club in general at: isusucc@gmail.com

Stand Up Club Updates

Good afternoon all,


I hope you are all having a great summer (or if your summer is going poorly, I hope that you can at least use any new trauma as material). 


First things first, Our new advisor is Michael Rentz. He has graciously allowed us to continue to be a club after Peter's retirement, so everybody, thank him if you get a chance.


Secondly, we will be meeting in a new room this semester: Curtiss 0208. The meetings will be at the same time (Wednesdays from 6:00 - 7:30 pm). It's a pretty cool room with lots of natural light and an interesting layout. I'm excited to see if this layout is going to work well for our club. I also updated the room on the club website to make us easier to find.


Lastly, as we get closer to the beginning of the fall semester, club fest will be rapidly approaching, and we need a new poster. So if you have any ideas for it, write them down and bring them to our first club meeting, which will be on August 23rd. 


Excited for another laughter-filled semester with you all.

Bring all the lovely jokes you wrote over the summer and all the ideas you have for the new Club Fest poster because this will be the best time of your life, and it's all downhill from here!


See you soon!

Club Fest

Good morning all you funny people,


I am sending out this announcement a day earlier than usual because Club Fest is tomorrow morning. We have a beautiful new poster, and I, for one, am excited to show it off. Club Fest is tomorrow from 11am to 4pm. Just in case you needed a reminder, here are our shifts:

11am-12pm: Noah, Arya, Elina

12-1pm: Ronnie, Arya, Alejandro

1-2pm: Ronnie, Keely, Anna

2-4pm : Arya, Eric, Billy


If you can't make it to your shift, that's ok. Just communicate that so we have at least one person running the table at a time.


At our club meeting on Wednesday (Curtiss 0208 from 6-7:30pm) we will be welcoming any new members and perhaps playing a round of Quiplash.


The only other reminder that I Have for you today is that tonight is the first m-shop open mic night. I myself won't be able to attend, but let me know how it is if you end up going.


See you all Wednesday,

Your comedy Pun-dant,

Election and Teehee's Today! Michael Rowland Tomorrow!

Good morning funny folk,


Today, we will be electing a new Treasurer for the club. All candidates will be given 3-5 minutes to speak and answer questions. The hope is for the election process to go quickly because we will be ending club early to go to Teehee's Comedy Club in DSM. Anyone is welcome to come along, but for legal reasons, we are all just going as friends outside of the club.


Also, on Thursday, comedian Michael Rowland is coming to campus to perform at the M-Shop. I got in contact with Mike, and although he won't be able to come to the club today, he agreed to meet up with us before his show. If you'd like to meet, talk to, and ask any questions to a professional touring comedian, plan on being at the M-Shop at around 6 p.m. on Thursday. Think about what sort of questions you wanna ask ahead of time so you aren't left with the "I wish I had asked him that" feeling afterward.


TL;DR: There is some really cool shit happening this week. Just read what I wrote. Come on, it's not even that long.

Normal Club today.

Good afternoon funny folks,


Sorry about the late email. I've had a migraine since last night, and it's finally easing up.


Today will be a pretty normal club, all things considered, but I did want to spend a little bit of time today talking through the joke-writing process a little more than we usually do if you guys are interested. I encourage everyone to bring in paper and a pencil today. It can be a pen, but personally, I'm terrified of how permanent writing in ink feels.


See you guys soon!


Definitely a real human person with physical and emotional attributes,

Anotha one

Today will be a fairly normal club meeting where we will live, laugh, and love.


Bring your notebooks and writing utensils, and leave your soul(s) at home.


That is all.


See you soon,
