Twisted Humor Comedy Tour to Visit Alumni Hall

SPA promised an April full of funny, and they continue to deliver.

After bringing Gabriel Iglesias to Eisenhower Auditorium, the student group will follow up with a quartet of up-and-coming comedians in the HUB-Robeson Center’s Alumni Hall.

The Axe Twisted Humor Comedy Tour, sponsored in part by FunnyOrDie.com, will take place at 8:30PM this Friday, April 9th. According to the Facebook event page, the show will feature comedians Donald Glover, Whitney Cummings,  Nick Kroll, and Chelsea Peretti.

You may recognize Kroll from various Funny Or Die videos or FX’s The League. Chelsea Peretti is listed on Wikipedia as a co-creator of the hilarious “Black People Love Us.” Cummings’s IMDb page indicates a career gaining momentum, including a guest appearance on “House M.D.”

If you ask me, the performer to be most excited about is none other than Donald Glover. Glover is one of five members of  internet sketch sensation Derrick Comedy, has written for NBC’s 30Rock, and is now starring on the network’s latest hit comedy, Community. His Comedy Central stand-up special premiered last month.

The show is free of charge – first come, first served with Penn State ID. If you are a fan of stand-up comedy or just in the mood for a few laughs, we expect to see you there.

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.”
