Humorology is one of the oldest and richest traditions on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. Now in its 71st year, Humorology is one of the largest non-profit student service organizations in Wisconsin. Over 600 students work year round, donating their time and talent to produce a musical comedy show that raises money for local and national charities. In addition to over 150 hours of rehearsal time, each student also participates in numerous service projects within the Madison Community.
The show itself consists of six original mini musical comedies that are all performed every night for three nights. Each twenty-minute show takes popular music and adapts it into an original story full of singing, dancing, and, of course, plenty of comedy. What makes Humorology so unique is that, aside from the music score, everything is created by the students. Each show is written, directed, choreographed, and performed by the students themselves. Even the sets and costumes are student-made, and when backed by a professional tech crew, Humorology has been equated to the caliber of an off-Broadway production.
