"A Shot of Reality and a Chaser of Comedy" provides an honest, engaging, humorous and sober new look at alcohol awareness on campus, educating students about encountering alcohol in a college environment. Two performers present the show in the form of a birthday party for students in the audience. Alternating between hilarious improvisations, in which the audience participates, and educational sketches which drive home facts and statistics, "A Shot of Reality" will make you laugh and think and inform your behavior towards alcohol.
