This February, Student Activities is putting on our first ever Comedy Night! We are really excited to invite you guys to a night filled with stand-up comedy, and two performances from Cackle Hour and YouthQuest’s improv team. It seems like we always have a couple of stand-up comedy acts at our Open Mic’s, so this semester we wanted to provide a night focused solely on making you double-over laughing.
Cackle Hour is Liberty’s first ever Improv Team comprised completely of students. Founded back in 2016, the group have been making students cackle at their many improv shows they put on throughout the school year.
YouthQuest is a ministry team that puts on weekend conferences for high school and middle school students. A large part of their ministry is their hilarious improv team. They will be opening up the night with some knee-slapping skits.
Another part of comedy night is a stand-up set by everyone’s favorite Coffeehouse host, Landen Swain. Swain has been hosting Coffeehouse since 2018, working on his stand-up chops in front of thousands of LU students each semester. It’s a tough but rewarding position to be in when a joke lands. He is also published in numerous magazines, literary journals, and has several plays published by Off the Wall Plays, an online play publishing house.
If you love laughing, yummy food, and warm coffee, come to Comedy Night at 7 p.m. on February 6 in the LaHaye Event Space. We hope to see you there!
