Mission Improvable, a well known improv comedy group, also known as entertainers of the year by campus activities magazine 2013, performed April 7 at the student union building, sponsored through Campus Activities Board.

The “entertainers of the year,” Mission Improvable, were back to perform for students of Texas A&M University-Kingsville on April  7 at the Student Union in a night full of mayhem and unpredictability.

“They really engage with the audience and their energy is flowing throughout their performances,” said Ashley Martinez, Campus Activities Board President.

The group, consisting of four people, was Sherman Edwards, Matt Garard, Kevin Branick, and Mike Keeney. On stage, they go by different names, calling themselves “agents.” They work based on the suggestions of the audience at a fast pace.

“They play off the audiences any ideas the audiences,” Martinez said.  “People can bounce off their ideas without being so shy.”

Mission Improvable, named entertainers of the year by Campus Activities Magazine 2013, started in 1998 at the University of Massachusetts Boston.

“It was actually really fun,” said Courtney Reese, freshman.  “ I didn’t know what to expect but it was an experience.”

Jeremy Vela, freshman, was one of the students selected to go on stage. He said the experience made him nervous.

“ I was kind of nervous, it felt really weird being on stage in front of people, because I am not used to talking,” Vela said. “It felt awkward, because you had to think on your feet.”
