Comedians to Offer Weekend Entertainment on Campus
The University of Findlay will host Cookies and Comedians at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, in the Alumni Memorial Union. Community members are welcome; tickets are $5 at the door. This show is rated PG-13. No children under the age of 13 will be permitted.
Lucas Bohn and Alexandra McHale will be the featured comedians.
Bohn is energetic with an edge, and his comedy has been described as both smart and audacious. Known as the little guy who generates big laughs, Bohn has shared the stage with Dave Chapelle, Jimmy Fallon and Pablo Francisco.
He placed runner-up in the Magners Comedy Festival and was awarded Best of the Fest at the Detroit Comedy Festival. In addition to performing on stage, Bohn does voice-overs and has been featured on PBS, CBS and Coastal Today.
A “bad boy with a good heart,” Bohn has performed for charities and fundraisers such as Childhelp, Habitat for Humanity and the George Washington Medical Center. Bohn also dedicates time to supporting our troops by working with The Comics on Duty World Tour.
McHale made her network debut on NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” and also has been seen on CBS’ “The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn,” Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and New Joke City with Robert Klein on the Metro Channel.
After her appearance at the prestigious Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, The Hollywood Reporter cited McHale as one to watch “who scored points with quick barbs.”
McHale grew up in Connecticut before relocating to Ne York City, where she became a lifetime member of the prestigious Actors’ Studio and studied with acting greats such as Paul Newman, Sally Field and Ellen Burstyn.
She is a frequent commentator on VH1’s “I Love the ‘80s,” “Supersecret TV Formulas” and “The 100 Most Cheesetastic Video Countdown.”
In addition to appearances on network television, McHale has headlined at more than 300 colleges and was voted 2002 and 2003 Female Entertainer of the Year for the readers of Campus Activities Magazine, and was nominated for 2005, 2008 and 2009 Female Entertainer of the Year and 2009 Comedian of the Year and was nominated Performer of the Year for the Promotion of Campus Activities.
