Bill Cosby’s Coming To Happy Valley, You See

Bust out the Jello pudding pops and crazy sweaters…because Dr. Cosby is coming to town.

On Friday, January 23, comedian Bill Cosby will be performing at Penn State’s very own Eisenhower Auditorium. Tickets will be on sale to the general public this Monday, December 15th, for his two stand-up performances at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Tickets are $49.75 for a section-one seat and $44.75 for section two. Purchase tickets online at or by phone at 814-863-0255. Outside the local calling area, dial 1-800-ARTS-TIX. Purchase in person at one of three locations:

• Eisenhower Auditorium, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays;
• Penn State Tickets Downtown, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays;
• Bryce Jordan Center, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays.

Personally, I find the guy hilarious, whether he’s intending to be funny or not.

But in all seriousness, Cosby is not only a comedy legend, but a pop culture icon as well. And if you write for Penn State Live, he’s basically the Messiah:

Whether through concert appearances or recordings, television or films, commercials or education, Cosby has touched people’s lives. His humor often centers on the basic cornerstones of our existence, seeking to provide an insight into our roles as parents, children, family members, women and men.

I’ll just go as far to say that his act should easily be worth the ticket price.

Gorman Abruptly Resigns

Head coach of the men’s soccer program Barry Gorman unexpectedly announced his resignation Monday. He leaves a legacy of 22 years of coaching and three Big Ten titles in his wake. Citing “personal reasons,” he has left the team to a nation-wide search for his successor.

“We expected Gorman to be there,” [rising Senior and Co-Captain Andres] Casais said of next season. “He was a father figure to us.”

Oof, that can’t feel good. The move isn’t completely out of the blue, as Gorman was periodically absent during the past few weeks without notice. But from all accounts, his intention to resign was only revealed yesterday. On the abandonment scale, this registers just slightly above “going to the store for some cigarettes and never coming back.”
