Family Weekend: We Brake for Nobody Fills Forum

Mary Morris, Staff Writer

Among the numerous activities to keep parents and students entertained this past Family Weekend was the student run improv group, We Brake for Nobody.

With two afternoon show times, the troupe attracted large and enthusiastic audiences. At the 3 p.m. showing, the seats and aisles of the Elaine Langone Center (ELC) Forum were packed full, but once the show got started, no one was worried about their personal space as the laughs kept coming. Audience members enjoyed participating in the show by shouting out suggestions for locations, objects, phrases, and actions depending on the game.

The hour-long show included a fan favorite where one troupe member must explain to his boss why he is late to work. The catch is that the troupe member doesn’t know the reason the audience picked for his explanation. He must attempt to figure it out by watching his fellow troupe members play charades, while holding a conversation with his boss. One might think it would be difficult to mime getting your tongue stuck to a flagpole and being dragged by a giant dog, but the talented members of We Brake for Nobody made it look easy and, of course, hilarious.

Throughout the show the troupe created silly and interesting characters that kept the audience engaged, which is no small task when you consider the range of generations in attendance.
