Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
Eric Dittelman Tonight!
Ever wonder what it would be like to know what someone else was thinking? What if you knew exactly what someone else was going to do before they did it?
Eric Dittelman knows what that’s like and has been reading minds at theaters, colleges, comedy clubs, and corporate events all across the country.
Often known by just his surname, Dittelman combines amazing mind reading with stand-up and improv comedy. In 2012, he blew audiences away as the first-ever mind reader on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” where he was a season 7 semi-finalist and judges’ favorite. He has since appeared on “Ellen”, “Live with Kelly and Ryan” and “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” where Penn called his act “bordering on genius!” He’s also been featured in “Entertainment Weekly”, “Rolling Stone”, and even “The National Enquirer”.
He has studied improv comedy with Upright Citizens Brigade, Improv Boston and Second City. He was nominated “Fastest Rising Star” and won 2015’s “Best Male Performer Award” by Campus Activities Magazine. In 2018, he made his Broadway debut appearing with “The Illusionists”.
Late Night Presents: Comedian Lauren Faber
Join us for a night of laughs on Saturday, November 2 at 10 PM in the MUB Ballroom. Late Night presents Comedian Lauren Faber!
Lauren Faber is a feral comedian who was raised in a basement by the 90’s comedy specials of Ellen DeGeneres, Paula Poundstone, and Elvira Kurt. (Yes, she sees the connection now.) Her thoughtful comedy and storytelling touches on sexuality, mental health, politics, and her own very, very bad decisions. She has been compared to Kate McKinnon, PBS, and a golden retriever. (No, she doesn’t see the connection.)
Lauren’s comedy has appeared on Audible’s Punchlines. She was a StandUp NBC Semi-Finalist and won the titles of NYC’s She-Devil and Carolina’s Funniest Comic. She has performed in numerous festivals including Laughing Skull, Limestone, and 208 Fest has shared the stage with the likes of Maria Bamford, Beth Stelling, Fortune Feimster, Iliza Shlesinger, Todd Glass, and Matt Braunger.
When Lauren isn’t on stage, she manages international development research at a university in Durham, NC with a very famous basketball team that she cares nothing about. She has two cats, Stetson and Kennedy, and likes one of them. They were a gift. Don’t do that.
The MUB Board is hosting a Hogwarts Night on November 13th from 7-9 pm in the MUB Ballroom B. This event will have cupcake decorating, quidditch games, and pin the nose on Voldemort. Also, attendees are welcome to wear costumes!
