Every once and awile, The Shaft likes to throw benefit shows to keep the student publication in business. To read a story on the first "Shaft Aid", click here.
Here's a a video compilation of Shaft Aid I. You'll see some guy claiming to be George H. Blatz at the beginning, but we all know George is a dog. About a 1:30 into it, you'll see The Shaft Sounds Off! performers Michael Busch, Anthony Deptula, Jimmy Schurman, and Eric Moneypenny jamming in an improv set. (RealVideo)

Before they were on The Shaft Sounds Off!, Mike Busch and Anthony Deptula were in the OU sketch comedy group Four Funny Guys and Matt. They'd play in front of huge audiences here, and were booked at colleges all around the state, including Ohio State, Hiram, Rio Grande, Ohio Dominican, and others. Anyways, a couple of the guys from the group were either graduating, or not going here anymore, so they decided to have one last blowout on campus.
