Comedian Tim Young will take the stage first, as he’s performed for more than 500 college campuses. Headlining at clubs all over the country, Young was a finalist on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and has made multiple appearances on Comedy Central. If you haven’t seen him on stage, you may have seen him commenting for shows on MTV, TLC, and E. He has also starred in commercials that aired during the Super Bowl, World Series, and the Oscars.
Wali Collins will take the stage next. Collins is recognized as one of New York City’s top comedians. His clean and clever style, mixed with his quick wit, led to an opportunity to host Comedy Central’s “Stand-up Stand-up,” where he hosted the largest and most varied collection of stand-up comedians in the world. Collins’ unique talents also landed him the opportunity to work with President Bush and President Obama. When he’s not traveling the country and performing, he’s working on his hit Netflix series, “The Get Down” and Hulu’s “Difficult People.” Collins is recognized as one of America’s top clean comedians, described by his colleagues as “versatile, smart, and very, very funny.”
Also taking the stage is speaker, author, and comedian, Karith Foster. Foster entered the comedy scene in New York City and has headlined across the United States and abroad, becoming the first comedian invited to perform for the United Nations. Since then, she has performed as a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show, VH-1, The Today Show, and The View. She was featured in two hit documentaries “Can We Take a Joke?” and “No Safe Spaces” starring Adam Corolla and Dennis Praeger. Foster is also a former co-host of Imus in the Morning, and is a regular on morning TV where she shares her independent views with the nation. Her motto is “If you can laugh at it, you can get through it.”
