Full Ammo Improv Holiday Spectacular 

Full Ammo's last show of the season!
To think we've come so far. From the Blood Falls of Greenland to the Montreal Massacre, we've seen the worst that ol' "Saint" Nick has to offer. Full Ammo Improv sits in our parkas at the walls of his North Pole Megadrome, ready to put to end this millenia-old horror. Will you join us, and maybe share a few laughs (and tears) along the way?
Friday 7:00pm in 113 Carnegie Building   -   For more info visit:
