Some of the comedic acts are witty, others weird, but all are funny.

Experience laugh-out-loud performances from six talented comedians during Georgia College Department of Theatre’s first “Stand-Up Comedy Night.”

The show starts at 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 7, in the Campus Black Box Theatre.

“This show is a great opportunity to enjoy fun, live comedy in an intimate setting,” said Dr. Karen Berman, chair of the Department of Theatre. “Audience members will connect with our best Georgia College alumni and some great Atlanta comedians with national stand-up experience.”

Continuing theatre’s season theme, “Literacy, Lifelong Learning and Leading,” the comedy show gives recent Georgia College graduates the chance to showcase their performance skills alongside industry professionals.

The performers include Steve Holbert, Georgia College theatre alumnus; Andrew Markle, Georgia College outdoor education alumnus; Linda Sherbert, playwriting instructor of the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta who made Jay Leno laugh; Robin Henry, longtime journalist and writer at Tyler Perry Studios; Mike Haun, up-and-coming comic named Atlanta’s and the Southeast’s funniest person; and Kevin Dwyer, winner of the national Dave TV Comedy Contest.
