WVU Tech Laughs it Up with Landry

Join the WVU Tech Student Activities Board and stand-up comedian, Landry, for a night of laughs this Thursday, October 30.

The Canadian born, Atlanta-based comedian employs a “crossover” style of comedy that appeals to a wide range of audiences, and is stopping in Montgomery as part of his current college campus tour.

“He’s so funny and he’s big on the college circuit,” said Emily Sands, Director of Student Activities. “We’re excited to have him on campus. The show is a going to be a great way for students to take a break from studying or doing homework and get out to enjoy something fun.”

Landry’s brand of humor has been recognized in Canada and the United States, where the comedian won the Boston Comedy Festival (2011), captured the title of “Best Male Comic” in the Atlanta Stand Up Awards (2010), and was a finalist in the Great Canadian Laugh Off (2010), the World Series of Comedy (2011) and the Miller Lite Stands Up Competition (2012). He has also appeared on TVONE’s “Bill Bellamy’s Who’s Got Jokes?” and on SiriusXM satellite radio.

Thursday’s show is free and kicks off at 7:30 p.m. in the Tech Center Ballroom.
