It’s about that time for Hawkeye students. One more weekend before the dreaded finals week. Do you stay in this weekend, and get a headstart on studying? Or go out, for one last hurrah?
You should go out. Specifically, you should go see Chris D’Elia’s stand-up comedy at the IMU Main Lounge Friday at 10 p.m.
D’Elia may not be a megastar in the comedy realm just yet, but he’s on his way. He is best known as starring opposite of fellow stand-up comic Whitney Cummings in her short-lived NBC sitcom Whitney, from 2011-2013. Despite the show’s cancellation, Comedy Central saw fit to give D’Elia his first one hour stand-up special last December, subsequently launching him into Variety’s “Top 10 Comics to Watch.” His next venture, a starring role in the upcoming NBC sitcom Undateable, will premiere at the end of this month.
Take a look at his bit on the rapper Drake, for starters:
This show is presented by the Campus Activities Board. Tickets can be bought at the IMU box office at $7 for the public and $5 for UI students, or purchased online for $8.90.
