Late Night Programming – Comedian, Pete Lee

Come out for some comedy Friday, January 25 at 10:00 PM in the MUB Ballroom.  Pete mixes cutting punchlines with an underdog perspective to absolutely roast himself on stage. His likable style and self-deprecating humor have made him one of the hottest acts today. He made his television debut on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend.  He’s come a long way since then, being placed 12 out of the top 100 comedians in Comedy Central’s Standup Showdown. Pete has also proved that his humor transcends demographic boundaries by winning Country Music Television’s Next Big Comic.

**This event is brought to you at no cost.  Guests are welcome to attend!
