The University of Iowa Campus Activities Board announced on Tuesday that BuzzFeed writer and comedian Matt Bellassai will be on the schedule this spring, with a late night event at the IMU in April. Bellassai is most known for his wildly popular video series “Whine About It,” simply and aptly described as, “A weekly video series where Matt Bellassai gets drunk at his desk and complains about stuff.” The 25-year-old has tackled such topics as “Types of Co-Workers That Are The Absolute Worst” and “The Most Annoying People To Text With.”
