September 14, 2017

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Penn State Student Programming Association Special Events committee has announced that comedian Chris D’Elia will perform in the HUB-Robeson Center’s Alumni Hall at 10 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 23.

Chris D’Elia is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after comedians and actors in the comedy world. D’Elia is best known for his starring role on the NBC comedy series "Undateable." His latest standup special, "Man on Fire," is now on Netflix. He currently has a successful podcast, "Congratulations with Chris D'Elia," which launched in February and has since been a mainstay on iTunes’ comedy podcast charts.

On stage, D’Elia continues to cement his status as a force in standup comedy. He is a regular at Hollywood comedy clubs — where he performs multiples times a week — and continues to tour the U.S. and Canada to sold-out crowds.

The performance is free for all students with a valid Penn State University Park photo ID. Doors will open at 9:30 p.m. and the show will begin at 10 p.m.
