Overview and metadata sections

The Lighted Fools are a Bi-College sketch comedy/improv group that perform two shows each semester. The group was founded in 1991, and continues on in new iterations to the present day. When it began, the Lighted Fools was an avant-garde theater group which performed Shakespearan soliloquies, eventually transitioning into its current sketch comedy/improv approach.

The collection contains programs of the club's performances.

Also within this collection are 19 digital documents related to the group from between 2020 and 2021. The majority of this part of the collection is devoted to scripts related to different comedy sketches the group has performed, as well as posters advertising events the group performed at.

The materials are arranged chronologically.
