The History of Humor U

Chapter 1
In the summer of 2006, one particular BYU graduate student was suffering from extreme boredom. He was so desperate for something to do that he dreamed up a crazy idea of starting a stand-up comedy club at BYU. This was impossible. The BYU administration would never let that happen. Stand-up comedy is all dirty and there is no way that BYU with it's overly sanitized performance groups that squeaked when they smiled, would ever allow a supposed art form of filth and sleaze on campus. But this crazed student wasn't deterred by the threatening obstacle of bureaucracy and suffocating tradition. Instead he march right into the offices at BYU and announced his intentions - comforted by the boredom that had been numbing his mind all year. (more to come)
