Patton Oswalt Creates Laughs at Penn State

I love when Penn State hosts great comedians. I do, I do, I do.

Myq (pronounced Mike) Kaplan opened up for SPA’s Late Night comedy show Friday night, and I was quite impressed with him. When telling stories, he kept reiterating that he has a “real” girlfriend, and he made me laugh quite a bit. I was surprised how great of an opener he was, and I’m glad he started the show off well.

Patton Oswalt was ridiculous. In a good way. He was just downright hilarious. He told some stories of him being that guy in sweatpants (usually with a same color t-shirt) doing crazy stuff because he only had three hours of sleep the night before. He also talked about being hypersensitive, and when two people exited the show early, he asked, “It’s not because you don’t think I’m funny, right?” My favorite was perhaps his closing, when he went over the disturbing lyrics and hidden meanings of the song “Christmas Shoes,” which you can listen to here. His show, in my eyes, was quite the success.

I am very excited for the College Humor Live Tour in December as well. You can never have too many laughs.

College vs. The Real World

Leaving Penn State was tough. I made so many memories in Happy Valley that it was a difficult transition to go through. Though I lived up all four years I spent at PSU, I can’t help but occasionally think, “Why did I ever leave?” I thought I’d reflect on my current life and college life and give some advice to those of you who still have time at PSU.
