In “Combo Za: Making It Up for 25 (March 2010) Rob White writes, “Someone used the phrase ‘combination pizza’ as a skit punch line, and the group found a name.” That someone was me. It was possibly the worst punch line in the history of improv comedy. My colleagues sailed to the rescue by uttering “combination pizza” at hilariously inappropriate moments through the rest of the show. In other words, the name “Combo Za” should be credited not to “a punch line” but to the collaborative wit, teamwork and professionalism that made that troupe such a joy.
