SPA Presents CollegeHumor Live Comedy Show

Penn State’s Student Programming Association (SPA) is bringing CollegeHumor’s live show to Alumni Hall in the HUB on Wednesday, Nov. 4. The show will feature some of CollegeHumor’s best comics, sketches, and stand-up performances.

CollegeHumor started in 1999 as a humor site designed to appeal to the “advertiser-friendly ” college-aged demographic. The site has since flourished, creating more and more original comedic content in the form of online posts and video sketches and series. The site is well-known for sketches including “Very Mary Kate,” “Troopers,” and the series “Jake and Amir.”

CollegeHumor’s YouTube page boasts more than 10 million subscribers and almost 3,000 videos, and was ranked as one of YouTube’s Top 100 channels in 2014. The site also churns out articles (the kind that everyone shares on Facebook), pictures, and GIFs that appeal to college-aged students’ senses of humor.

The event will start at 8 p.m., with doors opening at 7:30 p.m. The show is free for all students with a valid Penn State I.D., but you probably shouldn’t wear jeggings.
