Comedic gifts


Founded by 30 Rock producer David Miner ’91 and still hosted at Skidmore each year, the National College Comedy Festival is “like Christmas for comedy,”


says one performer. The 2012 ComFest (highlighted in the Feb. 5 New York Times) added a “Women in Comedy” panel dis- cussion to the busy weekend of perform- ances. From more than 50 student comedy teams, the Skidmore organizers chose just 18, representing 12 col- leges from Bates and Brown to Vassar and Yale; the home team fielded Skidomedy, the Ad-Liberal Artists, and the Sketchies. Three professional troupes capped the student sets, and some of the pros also offered workshops in sketch and improv comedy. —SR


8 THE SKIDMORE COLLEGE HATS OFF TO HAVANA


As a Baltimore tourist in 1950s Cuba,


NTUSA actor Ryan Bronz ’96 takes part in a campus tribute to William Kennedy, the Albany-born Pulitzer winner and leading light of the summer writers’ institutes at Skidmore. To celebrate Kennedy’s newest book, Chango’s Beads and Two-Tone Shoes, which involves Ernest Hemingway in Hava - na, Skidmore’s Salma- gundi journal staff and others transformed the Surrey-Williamson Inn into a vintage Havana jazz club. During the course of the evening, the salon/happening featured a reading by Kennedy, live music, and scenes that Bronz and fellow actors wove into the flow of the party. —SR
