BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Happy Black History Month.  I know it’s almost over, but I’ve been busy promoting my newest run of classes in LA.  My improv company, The Improv Trick has a brand new website.  Click HERE to see what we’ve been up to! If you’re in LA, take advantage of our free class this Sunday and next Wednesday.  Tell a friend!

So, on the first day of February, I created a video with some of my students at Central Methodist University…my alma mater.  Regular readers of this blog know the hallowed halls of which I speak.  It’s a great liberal arts college in Fayette Missouri, and the scene of a civil war battle.  It’s also a historic place where former slaves made their way to freedom along the Underground Railroad.

So, naturally it made sense to create a satirical poem/music video with experimental college kids.  Beware, the “B” word is used, so it’s rated PG.  Younger Motherfakers, you may want to skip this video. The rest of you, enjoy this search for America’s future, a look back at it’s past, and some great music by Max Priddy. Featured in the video are Clint Verner and Darrell Bailey.  The video was shot at the Chi Delta house, a fraternal establishment that fosters “higher learning.”

Ya Dig?  We’re pretty proud of it, and we’re pretty proud of this video that appeared this month on HEC-TV.  It’s all about The Improv Trick in St. Louis….and beyond.

And yes, since my last post, I have a girlfriend.  Her name is Samantha, and I love her more than blogs can convey.  I’ve never been happier in my life, and all this without cough medicine!  Check out my Facebook Profile this month to see me and her.

Chott named 4th most popular St. Louisan

Marc Pruter, Gary Miller (The Browncoats) and Chott, 4th most popular

Hollywood, CA – According to IMDb, Bill Chott has been named the 4th Most Popular St. Louisan, running right behind Mykelti Williamson (Forrest Gump), Gregg Berger (Transformers: The Movie) and  James Gunn (Writer of Scooby Doo). Chott is soon to appear in Johnny Depp’s upcoming film The Rum Diary)

“I’m proud to be from St. Louis, and I’m proud to come in 4th place,” Chott said.  “And being proud of coming in 4th place just proves I’m a true St. Louisan.”

He celebrated by travelling to New Orleans, where he headlined the New Orleans Comedy Arts Festival, and appeared third or fourth billing on several other nights.  Then he continued on  a road trip that took him up the Mississippi River to his home town of St. Louis at Naughti Gras.

Pictured above, he was with Marc Pruter (Mastermind Award Winner, Producer of The Improv Trick) and Gary Miller (The Browncoats).   “Mr. Chott has always been 4th place in my mind,” Pruter slurred, “And hanging out with Gary and I tonight, I’d venture to say he’s 4th most popular in our group as well.

Ater an exhausted 4 encore performances,  he was crowned “King of Naughti Gras 3”.  And he was able to spend the Superbowl in St. Louis, home of the 4th place NFC West St. Louis Rams and narrowly avoid St. Louis’ Mardi Gras, the second largest Mardi Gras celebration in America!

THE GOSSIP BEAT

St. Louis, MO — A local eatery, The Golden Pancake found themselves the center of attention as paparazzi swarmed the ALL YOU CARE TO EAT breakfast buffet. Local celebrity disgrace Bill Chott had finished the last spoonfull of Country-style gravy, as he thrust a young woman in front of cameras.

Finally in the company of a woman when API photographers were present, he was desperately anxious to be photographed with her, and awkwardly so.  Perhaps still looking to reassure “the ladies” that he still had manly desires despite his “left nut” donation which made the Saint’s Superbowl victory possible.

Desperate for Affection, Chott grasps his "last hope"

This confirms rumors in Howard County’s Fayette Advertiser about his activities in Givens Hall, which Chott claimed was “called that for a reason.”  When pressed for comment, he responded, “That’s what SHE said.”  The comment could have been directed at this mystery woman, or perhaps your mother.

Givens Hall...rumors still persist.
