SPA Presents The Joke Off, Collaborative Weekend With School Of Theatre

The Student Programming Association will kick off a slew of events on April 2, starting with a collaborative weekend with the School of Theatre. The two-day event based around “a backstage pass to the multidisciplinary industry of theatre” will bring free panels, workshops, and presentations from noted professionals to the Theatre Building. The weekend’s events run April 2 and April 3 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In addition, SPA LateNight will hold its Joke Off competition in the HUB on April 2 at 10 p.m. The winner will open for SPA LateNight’s April 22 comedian, who has yet to be announced. The Joke Off lineup includes sets from Fabian Benavides, Daniel Munck, Michael Regan, Sean McGowan, Mbeta Sokolo, and Chris Collier, last year’s Joke Off winner and opener for comedian Tim Meadows. Students are encouraged to vote for their favorite student comedian at the BK Lounge in the HUB.
