Today's the last day to win Kyle Schroeder's (W'00), gift basket of 3 tubes of his new Cremo (shaving) Cream with fogless mirrors!

All you need to do is:
Click here to sign up for the DT Newsletter!




More about the Shaving Cream here + coupons if you want to purchase now ...+/-

The Astonishingly Superior Shave Cream

* Dramatically reduces cuts, nicks, scrapes and razor irritation.
* Gives you the closest, most comfortable. longest lasting shave.
* Leaves your skin astonishingly soft and smooth.

Try It Once to Believe it. Enjoy It For Life. It's Really That Good.

Most shave "creams" and "gels" are actually foam -- which is primarily air. Visualize a sharp blade scarping across your delicate skin with air as the main "lubricant." It tears your skin, creates little cuts and nicks that bleed, and leaves your skin looking and feeling rough.

Cremo has no air: It's an extremely rich cream (even more so than other similar/non-foam luxury shave creams). It contains unique, super-lubricating, highly-slippery molecules that have been compounded with powerful skin conditioners. Together, they make your blade glide smoothly over your skin astonishingly soft and smooth. I think you will find this is better than anything else you have ever used. Try it once to believe it. Enjoy it for life.

If you can't wait, here are some discounts to purchase his shaving cream at drugstore.com:

When I was an undergrad in Mask and Wig, there were a whole bunch of celebrity alumni whose caricatures were painted on the walls of our clubhouse that we always knew about, but you may not have...

Click here to discover some actors you've been watching for years on TV and film that I bet you didn't know were Penn alumni!


  • Alumni such as the Ned Wertimer (C'49), who played Ralph the doorman in the Jeffersons.  
  • Chip Zien (C'69), an accomplished Broadway actor who also starred as the title character in Howard the Duck and starred in Into the Woods.
  • Another notable Mask and Wig alum is David Naughton (C'73) whom you would recognize from American Werewolf in London (see image above). While David has been doing lots of different projects since, last week a DVD of his came out called Brutal Massacre, "a mocumentary about a "a beleaguered horror director who sets out to make the movie that will put him back on the A list! Unfortunately for him, a quirky crew and penchant for mishaps don't make anything easier in this hilarious satire of low-budget filmmaking."  Check out the trailer below!
