SPA To Hold Student Joke Off Auditions

Penn State’s Student Programming Association (SPA) will hold auditions for its Joke Off competition again this year. Auditions will be in 226 HUB on Monday, February 29 and Tuesday, March 1 beginning at 8 p.m.

To participate in the auditions, students should prepare five minutes of comedy. From there, the top six auditioning students chosen by SPA’s judges will proceed to compete in the Joke Off by performing a ten-minute set. Audience members at the Joke Off will choose the overall winner.

The winner of the Joke Off will be given the opportunity to open for SPA LateNight’s April comedian with a 15-minute set. SPA has not yet announced the headlining comedian that will perform at Penn State this April for its annual Comedy Month.

Last year’s Joke Off winner, Chris Collier of Second Floor Stand Up, opened for comedian Tim Meadows, a former ”Saturday Night Live” cast member also widely known for his role as the principal in “Mean Girls.” Previous Comedy Month headliners include famous comedians such as Lewis Black, Bo Burnham, and Donald Glover (before he became Childish Gambino).

Students can choose an open spot and sign up to audition here. Any questions should be directed to the SPA office in 226 HUB.
