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 celebrated its 50th anniversary this year with a big Reunion Weekend in April., Alums from all 50 years attended. There were be parties, star-studded panels with people like Ana Gasteyer, Dermot Mulroney, and Kristen Schaal , improv sessions, and information on 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.

Documentaries are difficult to fund and they're not used for anyone to get rich, but rather to spread the word on something we all feel is important and should be seen, which is why they are often crowd-sourced. Please consider becoming a part of the 'team' with a donation and help us spread the word!


Please use this link to make your tax-deductible contribution.  All donations over $500 receive mention in our Special Thanks in the credits for the film.

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.

I'm a Mee-Ow Show alum and I have some good stories for you!
