Comedian Pete Lee – Saturday, August 25 at 9 PM in the Rozsa
Looking for a fun Saturday night activity? Look no further! Join Late Night Programming and Orientation for the first comedian of the year, Pete Lee! The fun starts on Saturday, August 25th at 9 PM at the Rozsa Center. Bring your friends!
As always, this Late Night event is free and funded by the Student Activities Fee.Pete Lee picturePete Lee might be the nicest person in New York City, but that’s because it’s impossible to sound aggressive with a Wisconsin accent. Pete was raised in Janesville, WI by divorced parents and a 19-inch television, which is probably why he pursued a career in entertainment. Thanks to his highly rated Comedy Central Presents half hour special, Pete has packed venues at over 500 colleges and universities across the country. Pete has also been a standout on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and played a doctor on the CBS soap opera As the World Turns. His hit YouTube series titled Pete Lee’s Internet Freak Show attracted the attention of television executives. He was quickly hired to be a writer and cast member on FUSE TV’s Video on Trial and cast member on VH1’s Best Week Ever. Pete is a rising star in the college market and on television, but he is also really fun to have dinner with at your town’s Applebee’s.

Comedian Sammy Obeid – Saturday, September 1 at 10 PM in the Rozsa 

Lebanese-Palestinian-Syrian-Italian American (try saying it really fast) Sammy knows a lot about mixin’ it up. After double majoring in Business and Math at UC Berkeley — which is why he does comedy now — Obeid blends his education with his love for being the life of the party, breaking down hip, trending topics until you laugh your abs into a six-pack. Voted “Fastest Rising Star” of 2014 in Campus Activities Magazine, SaComedian Sammy Obeid EDS picturemmy has appeared on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, America’s Got Talent, TBS’s Conan, and often likes to remind strangers that he was the first comedian to ever tell jokes on the Food Network. In 2013, he may have even impressed his parents by setting a world record of performing comedy 1,001 consecutive nights, with his story featured in Time and The New York Times. And then he took a nap.

Come join us on Saturday, September 1 at 10 pm in the Rozsa Center!
This event is free and brought to you by Late Night Programming and Orientation.

The employees and customers of Foster’s Diner in Hope, New Mexico, 88250, experience a terrorizing examination their personal desires and dreams when Teddy, a disillusioned biker, calls them on living in made-up worlds.

Please note: This play uses adult language, simulated violence, and a gunshot from a theatrical firearm will be discharged during this production. The play will run Thursday – Saturday, for two weeks, Thursday, February 22 -Saturday, February 24, and Thursday, March 1 – Saturday, March 3, at 7:30 pm each night, in the McArdle Theatre.
