Matt Morris Accepted to The Groundlings!

What's funnier than Matt Morris doing an Improv routine? We're not sure there's anything funnier. And apparently The Groundlings think so, too, as Matt was accepted after his first audition and will be studying in Los Angeles in the fall.

What/who are The Groundlings? From their website www.groundlings.com, the following explanation is provided:

Who Are We?

Good question.  The Groundlings is an improvisation and sketch comedy theatre that has been entertaining LA audiences for over 40 years.  We’re a non-profit organization founded by Gary Austin in 1974.  A “Groundling” is one of the 30 company members who write and perform in the theatre’s shows and teach classes at the Groundling’s School. Our school has been the foremost comedy training ground in Hollywood and the springboard for countless careers.  

 Like whose?

Well, we hate to name drop, but since you asked...   Our alumni include Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, Phil Hartman, Lisa Kudrow, Paul Reubens, Cheryl Hines, Jon Lovitz, Larraine Newman, Will Forte, Maya Rudolph, Michael McDonald, Kathy Griffin, Phil LaMarr, Cheri Oteri, Chris Kattan, Julia Sweeney, Chris Parnell, Ana Gasteyer and Rachael Harris… just to name nineteen.

Hey, Matt! Will you get your good old CoSA buddies tickets to SNL? Congratulations and good luck!
