Laugh Your Socks Off

November 22, 2019

Jokes and birthday cake filled The Badlander last week for a night of philanthropy and comedy. The cost of admission? A pair of fresh socks.

The Badlander hosted “Laugh Your Socks Off,” a stand-up comedy show that uses a pair of clean socks as admission. Crystal Koosman, a volunteer DJ for UM’s KBGA radio station, worked with revival comedy team to organize the show as a way of celebrating her birthday. “I just wanted to host a show because I really like hosting, and then I wanted to do something that would give back to the community,” says Koosman. “I wanted to, instead of trying to get stuff on my birthday, I wanted to give something.” \

This was the second annual sock drive comedy night Koosman has organized.
