Colin Mochrie will perform Friday, May 5 at Leach Theatre.

Colin Mochrie, star of the television program “Whose Line it is Anyway?,” will appear on the Leach Theatre stage with hypnotist Asad Mecci at 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 5, to present their new show “HYPROV: Improv Under Hypnosis” at Missouri S&T.
