MTV’s Guy Code and Girl Code Comedy Tour Hits Alumni Hall

Three comedians from MTV’s hit shows Girl Code and Guy Code performed stand-up for a packed Alumni Hall last night as part of SPA’s LateNight series.

Comedians Nicole Byer, Alice Wetterlund, and Kevin Barnett each performed comedy sets before participating in a question-and-answer session with students.

The line for the event wrapped through the entirety of the HUB as students came out in droves to see their favorite MTV comedians. Despite getting off to a delayed start, the audience was welcoming of Byer who opened the show. Much like her Girl Code persona, Byer delivered a risque set — cracking jokes about her sex life and affinity for bacon, and even poking fun at Penn State.

“What the fuck is an Alumni Hall?” Byer said. “Is this where old people come to dance?”

Some students were starstruck by the MTV comedian who currently boasts over 200 thousand followers on Twitterand has appeared on TV shows such as 30 Rock and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. 

“I honestly just went to see Nicole Byer,” senior Kelly Kapusta said. “Just being in her presence was an honor, and she absolutely killed it.”

Wetterlund, who has appeared on FOX’s hit show New Girl, seemed noticeably nervous but warmed up as her set progressed. Her jokes about living life as a self-proclaimed feminist cat lady were hit or miss with the crowd.

Barnett, who was the headlining act, got the best audience response by far with his lighthearted set. His set focused on topics relatable to the college audience like the popular dating app, Tinder, and talking to girls. Barnett is a regular on College Humor and the TV show Funny as Hell. 

The show closed with a somewhat awkward Q&A session. The shy audience didn’t have many questions for the comedians, leading them to improvise in order to kill time.

Despite the awkwardness, the show seemed to be a hit with students who were just excited to see their favorite MTV stars here at Penn State.
