In Memoriam Sketch Comedy, Second Floor Stand-Up To Host ‘HaHa Valley’ Comedy Conference

Have midterms broken your spirit? Are you in dire need of a good laugh? Don’t fret — November 4 marks the first HaHa Valley Comedy Conference.

College comedy ensembles from all over the country will congregate in 113 Carnegie Building from 1:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. next Saturday. Two of Penn State’s own troupes — In Memoriam Sketch Comedy and Second Floor Stand-Up — will host the event.  The event is free to attend and anyone from the Penn State community is encouraged to stop by.

The schedule for the event is as follows:

  • The Plague (NYU): 1:30 to 1:50
  • Astor Place Riots (NYU): 1:50 to 2:10
  • Police Geese (Emerson): 2:10 to 2:30
  • Buckeye Stand Up (Ohio State): 2:30 to 2:50
  • Jimmy’s Traveling All Stars (Emerson): 2:50 to 3:10
  • JHU’s Stand Up Club (John’s Hopkins): 3:10 to 3:30
  • In Memoriam Sketch Club (Penn State): 3:30 to 3:50
  • Second Floor Stand-Up (Penn State): 3:50 to 4:10
  • Penn State Alumni: 4:10 to 4:35
  • Break: 4:35 to 6:00
  • Brandon Scott Wolf: 6:00 to 6:30
  • Chumble: 6:30 to 7:00
  • Brad Einstien & Company: 7:00 to 7:30
  • Hannah Boone: 7:30 to 8:00
  • OSFUG: 8:00 to 8:45
  • David Gborie: 8:45 to 9:30

Senior mechanical engineering major Katherine Black holds much of the event’s organizational responsibilities. In fact, she has served as a founder of In Memoriam Sketch, as well as a member of Second Floor Stand-Up.

She originally garnered inspiration from Penn State’s Full Ammo Improv at Penn State, as the troupe has hosted events similar to HaHa Valley in the past. Black especially looks forward to seeing a variety of unique troupes come together, as well as connecting with Penn State comedy alumni.

“The collaboration and networking between different schools adds another dimension to the conference,” Black said. You can RSVP for the event here.
