Slideshow: Student Valley Productions

SVP is UMass Amherst’s own comedy club. They are made up of three comedy teams:

Mission: IMPROVable (think “Whose Line is it Anyway?” with loud music)

Sketch-22 (like “Saturday Night Live” when your favorite cast was on) and

Improv With Attitude (like what’s played on the stages of Second City).

“Two free shows a week, 80 shows a year for free. Start your night right. We promise, you’ll have a great time.”

Comedy Jam brings something to laugh about

This past weekend, Student Valley Productions hosted their 14th annual Comedy Jam, aptly titled “Comedy Bowl XIV”. With a total of 15 performers over a span of two night showings, this year’s Comedy Jam was surely one to be remembered. With acts ranging from stand-up to musical comedy and everything in between, each piece managed to draw raucous laughs from a packed crowd two nights in a row.
