Comedian Chris D’Elia Leaves Fans Cackling In The HUB During SPA Performance

Standup comedian Chris D’Elia performed for a large student crowd at Alumni Hall in the HUB on Saturday night, touching on topics ranging from dolphins to “Game Of Thrones”.

D’Elia, who performed a stand-up act for Netflix earlier this year, started the evening by interacting with three members of the audience, spending about ten minutes with them before getting into the talking points he planned on discussing.

Among his main talking points were his two Yorkies and their lack of toilet training, the judgement he receives for not watching HBO’s “Game Of Thrones”, other comedians apologizing for what they say on stage, and, because why not, dolphins.

The New Jersey native vowed to never apologize for anything he said on stage that could be viewed as offensive, a comment which got one of the loudest applauses of the evening from the students in attendance.

D’Elia’s spiel about dolphins and how they have been known to sexually assault humans was perhaps the funniest part of the entire show. He explained how he thought that the idea of a dolphin raping a human was hilarious to him, and the crowd appeared to agree.

The capacity crowd in Alumni Hall enjoyed every part of the show, which was offered to Penn State students for free because of the Student Programming Association here at Penn State.
