SWASH, founded in 2003 by Corey Brown, has grown to an 11-member troupe of very funny folks, all students at ECU. Led by comedic veterans Katlyn Wiley, T.J. Walker, and Matthew “Whitie” White, Swash performs regularly on campus and at Greenville venues, but rarely outside of the college community.
“We really loved our show in Fountain last year,” Wylie said. “It’s a wonderful audience, and so different for us. It’s really challenging to try to do PG-rated improv.”
Wylie, a junior, majors in public relations. White considers “comedy” his major, and notes he’s been class clown since 6th grade.
Others in SWASH are freshman Jenni Hathaway, a dance performance major; Ryan Holden, a senior theatre major; Chuck Givens, a sophomore majoring in theatre education; Stephanie Underwood, a junior majoring in theatre education; Mandy Bauer, a junior theatre major; Matthew Dawes, a sophomore undecided upon a major; Joe Minnich, a junior chemistry major; and theatre majors T.J. Walker and Dick Palmer.
SWASH will perform at 7:00. Big Medicine will begin about 8:00
