Stand-up Comedian Moses Storm to Play IMU


Moses Storm

Hawkeye Room, IMU — Thursday, Sep. 24 at 10 p.m.

Moses Storm is not just a stage name. The young comedian spent his childhood traveling around in a bus with his family of missionaries. Fortunately for us, this fostered a hardy sense of humor, which he will share at the University of Iowa Memorial Union this Thursday night as part of the CAB’s After Class series.

For Storm, a mostly-unknown actor and comedian, this performance at the IMU may be an indicator of great things to come. CAB has presented many up-and-coming performers, in addition to comedic powerhouses such as Kevin Hart in October. Storm’s most notable work to date is the low-budget, surprise-hit horror film Unfriended, which surprised critics and audiences everywhere this past spring with its unusual (and super effective) scare tactics.

The film is shot entirely through the cameras of five teens’ computers as they interact through Skype, IM, and other mediating software. The film’s final cut was done in one contiguous take, providing an eerie sense of realism.

Currently, Storm can be found on the HULU series 4 to 9ers, Subway’s branded-show, currently in its third season, which features high schoolers working minimum wage jobs at the mall.

Storm’s stand-up — which contends with topics such as drawing his own porn as a kid and more recently, his texting woes — is a particularly great choice for the IMU. He shares all the problems of Iowa’s millennials; he just has more YouTube views.
