The red and yellow teams went head to head in Senseless Acts of Comedy's first versus show last night.

Students gathered in the Brown-Lupton University Union Auditorium Thursday evening to watch Senseless Acts of Comedy (SAC) perform their first versus show of the year.

This style of show pits improvisers against each other in two teams of three, with each trying to win the most points. Points are based on audience applause.

Kelly Ryan, a senior member on the team, said the format of the versus show allows for a more involved experience for the improvisers.

“Our regular shows do not have improvisers compete against one another,” Ryan said. “The versus show splits the team in half and our games take on a competitive style.”

The open format allows for more audience suggestion and involvement.

“People in our audience like to be loud and this show gives them more opportunities to yell, which is fun,” Ryan said.

Ryan Lynch, co-president of the organization, said the group is responsible for maintaining a stress-free environment on campus.

“We all have so many things on our plates these days that we forget to take the time to stop and laugh,” Lynch said. “We love getting to be the people the student body can laugh along with.”

Meg Lebeouf, a junior film major and frequent SAC goer, said the organization always provides laughs, even during her most stressful weeks.

“I love SAC because it’s somewhere you can go with your friends on a Thursday night and just laugh until you cry,” Lebeouf said.

Senseless Acts of Comedy performs every Thursday at 9 p.m. in the BLUU Auditorium.
