Bill Chott, master of all things silly and made-up, frequently returns home to St. Louis to work with students at his Improv Trick school for improvising comedians. And like most St. Louisans, Chott makes a special effort to get back for the holidays — and not just to visit with friends and family. Chott hosts the Fourth Annual Christmas Jam, a benefit for the St. Louis Area Foodbank, at 7 p.m. at Mad Art Gallery (2727 South Twelfth Street; 314-771-8230 or The evening is one of rapid-fire improv comedy, shenanigans, hilarity and thought-provoking social satire on the disintegrating mores of a society choking on a steady diet of celebrity idiocy — well, maybe that last bit isn't a guaranteed part of the evening. But it's improv, so anything could happen, especially because any audience member is permitted to take the stage and join in the performance. Oh, that could be dangerous or spectacular, or hopefully a smidgen of both. Admission is free with a canned good or you can make a cash donation at the door. Help alleviate hunger in the city and stamp out formulaic comedy at the same time.
