Founded in 1999 by Western Kentucky University alumni Colin Thornton and Josh Chapman, Happy Gas Improv has grown two decades with full student control. Their motto is "the root of comedy is trust." Now in 2019, the troupe announced its 20th anniversary reunion show for next month.

"I have been waiting four months to announce, but we are getting the band back together," said Stephen Korfhage, a Muhlenberg alumni and former public relations officer for two years.

Korfhage, currently residing in Chicago and a troupe member from fall 2011 to his graduation in the fall of 2014, said there will be members across the United States for the event as the last reunion was a celebration five years ago. He also served as Initiate Wrangler his graduating semester.

The show on Saturday, March 30th at 7 p.m. in Gordon Wilson Lab will consist of alumni and active members sharing the stage together.
