THE PRODUCING TEAM

Of all its significant accomplishments, Northwestern University is also home to the longest-running college improv comedy show in the country. The Mee-Ow show celebrates its 50th anniversary this year with a big Reunion Weekend in April., Alums from all 50 years will be attending. There will be parties, star-studded panels with people like Ana Gasteyer, Dermot Mulroney, Kristen Schaal and Craig Bierko, improv sessions, and there is a book being published about the show's history.

 

We will be telling the story of the Mee-Ow Show in a documentary film. Mee-Ow alum Seth Meyers has joined as an Executive Producer, and other high profile Mee-Ow alums will consider joining after the reunion in April (...Julia Louis-Dreyfus is one!)

Filming will take us to SNL, Second City, The Groundlings, and late-night talk shows, and into the homes of alums who attribute Mee-Ow to their success in professions outside of comedy.

If you are able - would you please consider making a donation to this project to ensure we are able to showcase Mee-Ow for lovers of improv and sketch comedy around the world.  

Your donation is 100% tax deductible through our partnership with The Film Collaborative, and will help provide the production much needed support to make a truly memorable film.

We are honoring the massive amount of work the Reunion Committee is doing and at this time are only collecting PLEDGES for donations.  The Pledges can become donations around the first of April and we will reach out to each of you who are able to a donation at that time.

 

Please use this very short form to send us information on your pledge!

THANK YOU for your consideration of this project and we'll be so excited to show you the final product.  And IF you are an alum of Mee-Ow and are interested in participating in the film - please reach out to us! We'd love to talk to you.
