It began with one high school, the Manual Arts High School in Central Los Angeles where McKeon teaches, and has spread to other schools in the Los Angeles area. The program has a code of accountability that requires team members to maintain a solid grade point average, and regularly attend school and practices in order to be able to play.

Daryl Wright is a Los Angeles comedian who continues to host “Ignorance is Bliss”, a show featuring some of the area’s hottest up and coming comedians. Tickets for the show cost $14 and are available online at www.improv.com.
