February 27, 2019

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Penn State Student Programming Association Lectures Committee presents a free talk by Josh Radnor as part of SPA’s Distinguished Speaker Series. The talk will be held at 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 14, in the HUB-Robeson Center’s Heritage Hall.

Josh Radnor is a "josh of all trades" who has experience in many forms of media, from movies to television to theater, and even music. Although his most well-known role is Ted Mosby from the Emmy-nominated series, "How I Met Your Mother," that’s not all that Radnor has accomplished.

Before he began his start on "How I Met Your Mother," Radnor debuted in his theater appearance on Broadway, starring in "The Graduate," which wasn’t the last time he would take the stage. Since 2002 Radnor has performed in five plays, including "She Loves Me" and "Little Shop of Horrors."

Radnor also is a member of a band and directs films. His band, Radnor and Lee, released their self-titled debut album in 2017. Prior to this musical endeavor, he has been directing and writing since 2010, beginning with his comedy-drama film, "Happythankyoumoreplease," which won the audience award for "Favorite U.S. Drama" at the Sundance Film Festival.

The lecture is free for all students with a valid Penn State University Park Student Photo ID and is funded by the student-initiated fee.

Tickets are also required for this lecture and are available for Penn State students to pick up starting on Thursday, Feb. 28, in the SPA office, 226 HUB-Robeson Center. Non-PSU students can also attend, and tickets for those without a valid Penn State University Student Photo ID are available starting March 11.
