MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) -For 75 years, the student-run and student-produced juried variety show called “Humorology” has been entertaining audiences each spring on campus. The show also makes a difference for area non-profits, raising $1.5 million dollars for various local charities over the years....and it’s back in person again this year after two years.

In this interview segment, two UW-Madison Seniors--Executive Producer Lindsay Cohen and Public Relations Chair Maddie Krebs-- share how hundreds of UW-Madison students bond together each year for this creative production that’s been a staple of spring since the late 1940s.

For information and tickets for this year’s Humorology show, “The Way Back Home” go to the Humorology website.
