LIVINGSTON, NJ - Livingston High School’s Student Government and Improv Club presented The Untalented Show Thursday night to raise money for Ventnor, a community in Atlantic City that was largely affected by Hurricane Sandy.

The show was open to the public and consisted of eleven acts ranging from comedy to poetry readings. Students and staff members preformed and the show was open to the public.

According to SGA Advisor and Social Studies teacher at LHS, Jennifer Alvich, there were “easily over 200 people in attendance.”

“SGA has taken the lead on trying to interact more with the community,” Alvich said. “We blanketed the town with fliers in order to get the community more involved so residents would come to the show as well.”

Alvich added that over $700 was raised for Ventnor.

“I am really proud of the community for getting involved and helping a great cause,” Alvich said.

President of SGA Jennifer Wu hosted the show as well as preformed short skits in between acts.

Wu told The Alternative Press that The Untalented Show is unique because anybody can perform.

“There are such silly talents so everyone is having fun while raising money for charity,” Wu said. “It’s so nice how the community and its students have come together and so far, we’ve raised a lot of money.”
