College Humor Live Tour Hits Heritage Hall WITH Headliner

As reported earlier, CollegeHumor.com’s stand-up comedy tour will visit the HUB-Robeson Center this Saturday – a free show which only requires a Penn State ID for preferred admission.

The show will feature four of the websites staples – Penn State alumnus Jeff Rubin (2004), Streeter Seidell, Jake Hurwitz, and Amir Blumenfeld – in addition to headliner Dan Levy. Or if you believe everything you read in the Collegian, there is no headliner at all.

The explanation for the discrepancy between the paper’s story and reality is simple – previously reported headliners Wyatt Cenac was called into the Daily Show for a taping and backed out of the contract. However, Comedy Central’s Dan Levy had been named as the headliner as early as two days ago. In defense of the Collegian – the writer of the piece did contact me (as a member of Full Ammo Improv) for an interview, and I did not return his call because it happened amidst the sudden withdrawal of Cenac. However, it is disappointing that the Collegian did not bother to fact check the entire point of their story before today’s edition went to print – the University, SOMA, Full Ammo Improv, and College Humor Live Tours worked together quickly to resolve the issue, and the Facebook event had been updated to include Levy by early Wednesday evening.

For those who may not be familiar with some of the performers, videos of their work are available after the jump. If you enjoy comedy, make sure to attend Saturday’s show as well as a student stand-up showcase tonight.

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.”
