Members of the community are invited to eat and laugh along with students at the University of Findlay on Friday, Aug. 22.
The university’s student-led Campus Program Board is presenting comedian Jay Black in the Alumni Memorial Union Multipurpose Room at 7 p.m. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Pre-performance cookies will be served.
A former high school teacher, Black has become one of the nation’s top comics, opening for stars such as Joel McHale, Ben Bailey and Sinbad. He made his TV debut on Showtime and has appeared on NBC, Fox Business, A&E and CBC. Black has also been heard on radio shows such as “Extra” and “The Chatter” as a pop culture critic.
He is most proud of the work he has done as the host of Army Entertainment’s “I Am Strong” tour, entertaining the troops and their families throughout Europe.
When not performing, he writes for television and theater, recently doing several punch-ups on scripts, including a reboot of “Police Academy.”
Tickets are $5 each at the door or free with a UF ID. The performance is geared for an audience 14 years of age and older.
For more information, call 419-434-4606.
The university’s Campus Program Board is a student-led group that works to bring high-quality, diverse entertainment to campus.
