Gigglepants Guru: Allison O’Conor

By Erin Altieri
October 12, 2014 - 11:36am

A show like SNL can last for 40 seasons because of its ability to continuously make an audience laugh. Laughter is one of those simple joys that can never be too appreciated and is always needed. UT Sophomore Allison O’Conor knows all about the power of laughter as a member of Gigglepants a comedy improv group on campus!   How did you get started with improv comedy? · My older brother got me into it! When I was starting my first year at UT, he was starting his last, and had been active in Gigglepants for three years already. He encouraged me to audition for the troupe, and although I had my reservations about seemingly “following in his footsteps”, I did (and I couldn’t be happier). READ MORE...

Making All The Difference: UT Sophomore Juliet Carrillo

By Elizabeth Stokes
September 17, 2014 - 1:11am

            In many ways, UT sophomore Juliet Carrillo is a walking contradiction. At a towering 4’11, she mentions that even automated doors rarely detect her presence. However, the power and pace at which she walks can part any collegiate crowd. Her bed, topped with various stuffed animals, is perfectly made while her desk reeks havoc on the left side of her room. Perhaps the most striking contradiction in her dorm is the bright turquoise blue flag that hangs on a very dull dormitory wall. A flag that not even the most qualified student in an 8th grade geography class could recognize. The country to which the flag belongs is much like Juliet herself; small but strong, unassuming but an anomaly in every way....

Matt King Puts His Vines on Top

By Charlotte Rose
May 11, 2014 - 12:42am

There are two types of people in this world: those who jam out to Beyoncé in the car, and liars.  While everyone may be guilty of some intense lip-syncing when Queen Bey comes on, they may not be used to thousands of people actually watching them in action, especially not repeatedly in a six second loop.  Matt King is a little more used to the attention: with over 330,000 Revines, Matt’s most popular vine (where he pulls some crazy faces in the car as “Love on Top” plays on the radio) has taken the senior advertising major to small-screen stardom.
