who we are
Humor Us! is a sketch comedy group at Cornell University. We write, direct, and perform all-new, all-original sketches for a show at the end of each semester. We also do smaller shows throughout the year, such as opening for events and doing free shows at charities.
What we do
Throughout the semester, we meet three times a week to pitch ideas, write some sketches, and make each other laugh. As the ominous deadline of our show approaches, we vote our favorite material into the show and start producing it. Before we know it, it's showtime, followed by an afterparty to which the whole audience is invited.
On a cold October night, way back in 2005, Humor Us! was created by our four mighty founders, Kenneth Jackson, Ernest Billinger, Katie Escoto, and Gretchen Schmindt. A kingdom was born, with Kenneth Jackson as the first overlord, I mean, president.
