"A master of humor." -The Charleston City Paper

"His training and experience in sketch comedy and improvisation make him a tour de force.." - The Charleston Daily
A handful of old school pals getting back into the ring to knock out some good old fashioned improv comedy. Each show is just as deranged as the last. If you like you comedy on the wacky side, then C.H.A.MPS. is the show for you. It’s fast-paced, silly, and at times even too silly. All we ask is that you get in the pit and try to love someone.
