University, majoring in telecommunications. Voted Funniest Man
on Campus in a U.S. College Comedy competition, Van Wormer spent
most of his off hours working as a co-writer and actor in "The
Show," MSU's award-winning and student-produced sitcom.

the former Lorimar) Television groups, and Van Wormer and his
co-writer were selected and enrolled in the Studios' sitcom-writers'
After graduation, Van Wormer moved to Los Angeles and enrolled
with The Groundlings' improvisational comedy acting school. With
enthusiasm and a hunger for more performance time, he and other

The Comedy Store and the Upfront Comedy Theater.
