Comedy Live! 8:00 pm
Comedy Live! @ Ritz Auditorium in Old Main
Aug 21 @ 8:00 pm
Steve Hofstetter and D’Lai, comedians with two distinctive styles, will bring the laughs to the University of Findlay campus on Friday, Aug. 21 at 8 p.m. in Old Main’s Ritz Auditorium during “Comedy Live!” Tickets will go on sale and doors will open at 7:30 p.m. There will be general admission seating. The event will cost $10 at the door for community members, but will be free for UF students, faculty and staff with a valid UF ID. It is rated PG-13; no children under age 13 will be admitted. Hofstetter, one of the top-booked acts on the college circuit and the original writer for collegehumor.com, has released five albums, three books and has written humor columns for the New York Times, SportsIllustrated.com and NHL.com. He has hosted “Four Quotas” on Sirius Satellite Radio and his “Sports Minute (Or So)” was syndicated on more than 170 stations and in more than 30 newspapers. His second live comedy album, “Cure for the Cable Guy,” reached No. 20 on Billboard’s comedy charts, and his third album, “Dark Side of the Room,” was the first “pay-what-you-want” comedy album. Hofstetter started out as a writer, and not just of missives to impress girls. At age 18 he cofounded “Sports Jerk of the Week,” an irreverent website featured by press like USA Today’s Baseball Weekly and CNN. He also supervised Web content for the New York Yankees. His undergraduate days at Columbia University were spent writing columns for the likes of Maxim and ESPN. His TV appearances have included stints on such shows as CBS’ “Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” Showtime’s “White Boyz in the Hood” and ABC’s “Barbara Walters’ Special.” He serves as executive producer for “Laughs” on Fox which is currently in its second season. He is also currently the senior comedy correspondent for Fox Sports. D’Lai demonstrates in his routines that the best comedy often arises from the most challenging circumstances. After the deaths of his mother and grandmother when he was a child, D’Lai turned to sports as a positive outlet, eventually making it all the way to Louisiana State University where he played basketball. He then joined the U.S. Army, where he discovered his love for both the stage and comedy, and hosted several talent shows. When he began cracking jokes publicly, he sold out many shows in Louisiana. But to make it big, he realized he had to relocate to a bigger city with more opportunities. Las Vegas was an obvious choice. In Sin City, he initially worked as a blackjack dealer by day and struggling comic by night before catching a break by winning the 2004 Las Vegas Star Search competition. D’Lai has subsequently made numerous television appearances, most notably on B.E.T’s “Who’s Got Jokes,” and has performed with comedians such as Bill Bellamy, George Wallace, Bruce Bruce and Dick Gregory. The Ritz Auditorium, located on campus on Old Main’s second floor, is accessible by an elevator located at the southwest corner of the building. The performances by Hofstetter and D’Lai are presented by the University of Findlay’s Campus Program Board, and the Office of Student Activities, Commuter Services & Leadership Development. Call 419-434-4606 for more information.
