Laughing out loud with student comedians

LOL and ROFL are more
than texting acronyms for
a group of University stu-
The LOL ROFL comedy
club, a student group started
five years ago, offers stu-
dents interested in comedy
an outlet to practice stand-
up. Engineering sophomore
Erich Laux, co-president
of LOL ROFL, wrote in an
e-mail interview that LOL
ROFL is the only comedy
group at the University that
focuses primarily on stand-
up, rather than other forms

of comedy.
The group welcomes
experienced comedians as
well as inexperienced stu-
dents who appreciate com-
edy, Laux wrote.
"We have weekly meet-
ings where we come togeth-
er with new joke ideas, tell
them to each other, and help
tweak/improve them so
they are ready to be told on
stage," Laux wrote.
All University students
are welcome to join the
group's meetings and attend
any of LOL ROFL's free per-

formances, which occur
every few months.
LSA senior Eon Harlow,
the club's historian, said
that unlike other comedy
clubs on campus, LOL ROFL
does not require auditions.
"Anyone who has ever
wanted to try stand-up is
welcome to drop in on any of
our workshops and get con-
structive feedback on their
jokes," Harlow said.
Harlow, who has been a
member of LOL ROFL for
four years and is a former
co-president, added that the

group also goes to see come-
dians and might plan a flash
mob for this year.
With the demands and
stress students experience
on campus, Laux wrote that
the group strives for a casual
"LOL ROFL is a laid back
organization that isn't a
huge time commitment, but
all of our members still man-
ageto have plenty of laughs,"
Laux wrote. "What's better
than hanging out with your
friends and telling jokes?"
