An Evening with Dean Edwards

Braley Garland

School is back in full swing and with that all the stress of classes and homework return. So why not relieve this stress with some good laughs? UPB is offering an evening with Dean Edwards that is sure to leave you smiling.

Dean Edwards is a comedian known for his work on MTV’s “Guy Code” and his two season stint as a cast member on “Saturday Night Live”. He is a well-known comedian who enjoys headlining acts not only across the country but also across the world. He has performed everywhere from Montreal to Cairo and many places in between.

The show will be set up like a stand-up comedy show but Edwards is sure to have the audience’s full attention throughout the show.

“We chose Dean Edwards because he seems like a really active entertainer. We are going to have a catwalk as a part of the stage and we thought he would be great to interact with the audience,” Tyler Flaim, special events coordinator for UPB, said.

The UPB has set up this night as a part of GSU’s Weeks of Welcome, which includes many fun activities including a block party on campus.

The block party will be during the day on Sept. 3 and will offer students the chance to win VIP tickets to see Edwards. The VIP tickets give you the chance to sit right up front, get in the doors early and be entered to win passes for a meet and greet after the show.

Take a break from all of the stresses of a new school year and enjoy some comedy for free with your student ID! This event will be located in the Union Ballroom and the doors open at 6:30 p.m. for at 7 p.m. show.
