Need a good laugh? Check out APSU's "Night of Comedy"

October 29, 2002

If laughter's the best medicine, open wide if you want to feel better! As part of Austin Peay's Homecoming week activities, the Student Life and Leadership Office is bringing “A Night of Comedy” to the campus and to Clarksville.

At 8 p.m., Friday, Nov. 8 in Clement Auditorium, four up-and-coming, stand-up comedians will perform their side-splitting routines.

Pat Brown is an actress/comedienne in “The Way We Do It” on Black Entertainment Television (BET) at 8 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday nights. In addition to being featured in “Vibe Magazine in the year 2000, she also won the Southeast Region's Bacardi Comedy Competition. She also has been featured on BET's “Comic View” for the last five years.

Pete Lipsey's humor has been called “intelligent, literate and sharp.” With Lipsey, either you get it or you don't. His style is “old school,” with a set-up and punchline. He worked several “real world” jobs before delving into comedy. Now with 13 years of stand-up comedy under his belt, he's found his audience: If you get it, great. If not, try a rerun of “Hee-Haw.”

Co Coa Brown has been featured the past seven years on BET's “Comic View,” and she has been seen on “Showtime at the Apollo.” In the year 2000, she won the Northeast Region's Bacardi Comedy Competition and was featured in “Vibe Magazine.”

Hailing from Savannah, Ga., Redbone emphasizes “color-blind” comedy. He has been featured as one of the new comedians on BET's “Comic View” over the past four years.

Admission to “A Night of Comedy” is $5 per person for APSU students (student ID required) and $10 per person for the general public. Tickets can be purchased at the Information Desk in the Morgan University Center.
