‘Ha-Larious Homecoming Comedy Show’ is Oct. 13

by Christi Mathis

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- As the name indicates, The Ha-Larious Homecoming Comedy Show at Southern Illinois University Carbondale Oct. 13 promises an evening of laughs.

The Student Programming Council’s Comedy Committee is sponsoring the 7 p.m. show at the Student Center Ballrooms.  Featured performers include Steve Brown, Ms. Dominique and Double D.  Tickets are $6 each and you can purchase them in advance at the Student Center Business Office on the second floor of the Student Center or at the door.

With a high-pitched voice and high-energy show where it’s likely you’ll see him doing a back flip, Brown has appeared at clubs and universities across the country.  A graduate of Stillman College with a bachelor’s degree in broadcast communications, Brown’s stand-up comedy has earned him a variety of prizes and he has headlined on the RJE Urban Comedy Cabaret Tour for three years.

Dominique refined her comedic skills as a night shift post office employee and delivers her comedy in a raw, uncut version.  Along with working as an opening act for Saturday Night Live’s Tracy Morgan, she has toured all over the country, appeared in the successful Def Comedy Jam Tour, made numerous television appearances and more.

Rounding out the bill is Double D, a comic known for his personality and funny interpretations of everyday life.  He has appeared with a number of well-known acts and on television and has taken his act to events, clubs, theaters and more throughout the U.S.
