Colby Creative Projects: Comedy Across Culture
View creative projects posted by students in the fall, 2012 mini-course RU197—“Comedy Across Cultures”! This can be any manner of project that demonstrates engagement with course ideas or materials: a monologue, spoken word or stand-up comedy routine; something in the visual arts; a short play, a poem, or a song; a mime or a dance. Enjoy!
Mike Langley ’13, editor of Colby’s satirical publication The Libel and member of the Humanities Student Advisory Board, has collected the following profiles of fellow Colby students who take comedy seriously in different ways around campus.
Dan Covert ’13
My name is Dan Covert and I’m a senior Math and Physics double major and hail from the bustling metropolis of Dover New Hampshire. At Colby I keep myself busy with the Colby Volunteer Center where I’m the associate director, Colby freestyle ski team where I am the president, whatever that means, and the radio WMHB where my friend Luke and I do a weekly show called jussacoupleaknuckleheads.
Tom Letourneau ’13
My name is Tom Letourneau, and I am a senior from Dayton, Maine. I am an English and WGSS double major, and a Russian minor. In addition being on the cross country, indoor, and outdoor track teams, I am co-president of The Bridge, Colby’s LGBTQ organization. Not only do I like to talk loudly about my personal life in public spaces, but I also like to tell others what to do.
