Guy and girl code expert, frequent MTV show host and comedian Andrew Schulz will travel to Georgia

Southern University for a free stand-up comedy show this Thursday.

Schulz will perform in the Russell Union ballroom at 7:30 p.m. Students can get in free with their Eagle ID.

“I’m excited to see him, I’m very familiar with him being on Guy Code. He’s a pretty funny guy,” Steirra

Thomas, junior information technology and information systems major who won VIP tickets to the show,

said.

Schulz is a regular in the New York comedy circuit and can be seen on MTV’s network, most notably “Girl

Code” and “Guy Code.”

“He’s really laid back and we are able to give away opportunities for meet and greets and also a dinner with

him,” Ashley Nixon, UPB Special Events chair, said.

Schulz will host two new upcoming shows for MTV, “The Hook Up” and “Jobs That Don’t Suck” and has

made countless appearances on numerous MTV shows including “Wild’N’Out” and “Hip Hop Squares.”

“I haven’t had the opportunity of seeing a comedian at Southern yet, so I am very excited about seeing

him,” Thomas said.

Schulz was also recognized as one of the top five up and coming comedians on Twitter and his unique style

has garnered him national attention in comedy circuits all over the country.

Schulz has opened for comedians Dave Chappelle and Louis CK and he hosted the European Movie

Awards in 2012, Nixon said.

Schulz’s is known for his brutally honest, unapologetic and edgy humor that has made him a regular

performer at famous venues including The New York Comedy Club, The Comedy Cellar and the Laugh

Lounge.

“Schulz’s quick wit and biting commentary on a broad range of subject matter make him a comedian worth

seeing this semester,” Nixon said.

Schulz is one of the two comedy shows organized by UPB that will be performing this fall. The other is yet

to be released.
