CollegeHumor Performance Cracks Up Alumni Hall

Penn State’s Student Programming Association brought the hilarious crew from CollegeHumor to Alumni Hall last night. The show featured some of CollegeHumor’s best comics, sketches, and stand-up performances. They certainly did not disappoint.

Adam Conover, CollegeHumor and TruTV star, opened the show. He quickly broke the ice and immediately got the crowd fired up.

“I feel like everyone here is a football maniac. It’s like a giant meteor of sports fans hit right here on Earth, you guys are everywhere!” said the comedian, who hails from Los Angeles.

Conover was engaging and upbeat. He discussed everything from the troubles and misadventures he experiences daily, to casual talk about sex and relationships. His jokes were aimed at the perfect audience, as the sea of college kids roared with laughter.

Next came Hampton Yount, an actor known for his work with Comedy Central. Yount was also upbeat and energetic, often traveling across the stage and using plenty of arm movements and gestures to exaggerate his stories. What stood out the most during Yount’s performance was his excellent impersonations. He caught the crowd’s attention by discussing indelicate topics like diarrhea, which sent the student crowd into a massive fit of giggles.

“Do women get diarrhea?” Yount asked the crowd. “I know women shit, but do they get awful diarrhea like me and this guy in the front row?!”

Thomas Dale followed Yount’s set. He approached the audience comfortably and intimately. Dale, who is from Long Island, spoke about his experiences being gay, and what it was like growing up as a homosexual in New York City. He specifically highlighted interactions with his father, who was a cop.

“Yeah I know. You’re probably wondering why a gay guy is wearing Jordans and is dressed like a bully. It’s because I’m from Long Island. I’m the alpha male and the dumb bitch at the same time!” he said.

Overall, this performance was a great way to spend an otherwise mundane Wednesday night. CollegeHumor lit up Alumni Hall in the HUB, and served as perfect comic relief for a huge crowd of stressed-out students.
