Paul E. Orwick and Walter Coppage were Electric Zoot Suit, a comedy team that performed at Meredith last year. Their act was a combination of skits, improvisation, and a variation of the play “MacBeth,” or as they called it “MacBreath.” Three stu dents “volunteered” to participate in the play. Everyone enjoyed seeing their friends a part of the act. Electric Zoot Suit was entertain ing and worth seeing. If you missed the comedy team this time, be sure to watch for their return. MEA did a great job of decorat ing Le Greenhouse and providing nachos and salsa for refreshments. I had never been to the Comedy Club and was surprised at all the time MEA put into it. Le Greenhouse looked like a little nightclub. MEA’s Comedy Club will pres ent other acts throughout the year. Watch for flyers that announce the acts and be sure to check out MEA’s Comedy Club.
