Rush FAQs 

What is sketch comedy? It’s like improv, right? 

Not exactly. Ever seen Saturday Night Live? It’s kinda like that. We write all of our own sketches, and then produce and direct them for our monthly performances. We also make videos.

 

What are auditions like? 

Auditions are low-stress and lots of fun. We'll ask you to read through and act out sketches that we have written and performed. If you can read, you can audition.

 

Do I need any experience? 

No! Red Hot Poker is a diverse group of trained actors and awesome amateurs. If you've never acted, you might be surprised how funny you really are!

 

What's the time commitment? 

We meet twice a week to throw out sketch ideas and edit drafts. We also perform about six full-length shows a year. Although the week of a show can get hectic, we tend to be pretty laidback.

 

Can upperclassmen audition? 

Yes! Upperclassmen are welcome to audition.

Rush Schedule 2017 TBD!

 

Thank you for everyone who auditioned for us in the fall of 2016! We loved watching what you brought to the table, and we hope you had a good time too.

 

Look for us during our Bulldog Days joint show with The 5th Humor on Monday, April 24th, 2017!
