Senior Spotlight: Pocket Lint

The senior members of the improv group Pocket Lint must have been born with a few extra funny bones. Ranging from only a semester of experience to all four years of their Wittenberg career, each senior delivered a range of great one-liners and sketches at their first performance of the semester in Founders last Wednesday.

Sitting down with the group after the show was like getting a private performance. It was clear how close they all were by the severity of their teasing, and just how many “favorite moments” they could come up with. If you know Pocket Lint, not all of their answers can be printed, but here are the seniors and their thoughts on their experiences and what’s to come for the improv team:
