he Rubber Chickens Improv Comedy Group is one of two improvisational theater groups at the University of Delaware. The group was founded almost twenty years ago and specializes in both long and short form improv. Shows are held at various locations on campus at least once a month, and the group also regularly performs at events that other RSOs hold for students. We have become very active in the performance community, co-sponsoring/cross-promoting events with organizations like HTAC, E52, V-Day, and Phi Mu Alpha. In addition, the Rubber Chickens participate in a number of festivals and host our own festival, D.I.S.C.O. (The Delaware Improv and Sketch Comedy O' Festival), annually during the spring semester. Our mission as an RSO is to bring improv comedy to the UD community not only to preserve and practice the art of improv but also to provide a comedic outlet for the Newark area.
Consider making a gift to support The Rubber Chicken's 13th annual DISCO festival!
DISCO is a two-day event that features the improvisational talents of a variety of college
groups from the surrounding area as well as semi-professional and professional groups from as far away as Chicago. In addition to improv, we also feature musical talents of local and on-campus groups as well as stand-up comedians and sketch writers. It is an extremely fun event and a Rubber Chickens tradition as this will be our (lucky) 13th year hosting the festival. The event not only gives UD's comedy and theater community the chance to network with professional organizations, but it also provides the whole campus with an uplifting activity for a Friday and Saturday night.
