History of Snow Day

In 2006, a group of improvisors hosted a special improv night where improvisors, home for the holidays, could reconnect with friends perform together. In 2009, the event moved to Go Comedy! and transformed from a fun night of improv into a fundraiser for Gilda’s Club of Metro Detroit, the Tim Hayden Scholarship Fund and the Diana George Jacokes Endowment Fund.
