  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]
  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

Nick Swardson announced as LOL with UAO headliner

University Activities Organization has booked Nick Swardson for its LOL with UAO event next January.

Swardson will perform at the Stroh Center Jan. 29. An opening act has been confirmed, but not announced yet, said Ally Tharrett, UAO co-director.

UAO tries to bring in comedians students will be familiar with, Tharrett said.

“We start out with comedians in our price range, and then we narrow it down to our top three, and then we research them,” Tharrett said. “We choose the person who would most likely bring in a lot of students, bring a lot of laughs.”

Swardson played Terry Bernadino on “Reno 911!” and has been in “The Benchwarmers”, “You Don’t Mess with the Zohan”, “Just Go with It” and “Grown Ups 2”.

He tends to be in Adam Sandler’s movies,

Tharrett said.

“We thought that he’s just a really recognizable face,” said Megan Largent, UAO president.

In the past, UAO has brought in Gabriel Iglesias or “Fluffy” and Bo Burnham for LOL with UAO.

While UAO was responsible for choosing the comedian, the Office of Campus Activities [OCA] does assist UAO with logistics, said Chris Bullins, associate dean of students.

OCA staff review contracts with performers to make sure they’re fair. OCA staff also work out details with Stroh Center staff

and police.

Tickets will be $5 for students and $35 for others.

Online ticket sales for students only will be Dec. 15 through Dec. 19. A link will be available on the Office of Campus Activities web page, Bullins said. Students will use the code LOLNICK when

purchasing tickets.

After that, student tickets will be available at the Stroh Center box office. Sales will open to the general public through Ticketmaster.

Sales are limited to two tickets per person.

On Jan. 29, the doors will open at 6:30 p.m. The opening act will perform at 7:30 p.m., followed by Swardson at 8 p.m.

It’s important for students to remember their student IDs, Bullins said. Students can bring a non-student guest with them but at least one person using a pair of student tickets must have a student ID.
