9:09 p.m. – Deans of Comedy @ EJ Thomas Hall
The Deans of College Comedy is a one-of-a-kind show at The University of Akron. They are four of the best college comics in America, together on the same stage at last. The Deans are Steve Hofstetter (15 million YouTube views, host of Laughs on Fox), Jay Black (writer and co-star of the ION original movie Meet My Valentine), Ronnie Jordan (appearances on HBO, BET, and Showtime), and Taylor Tomlinson (NBC’s Last Comic Standing).
These four comedians have, collectively, performed at over 2,500 schools and own several awards for their work on the college circuit. The Deans are “rising stars” who have each had success in television and movies. That said, this diverse group has one thing in common: a love for the stage, specifically the college stage!

7 - 11 p.m. – RA Lip Sync, followed by Casino Night @ EJ Thomas Hall
First come out and watch the Resident Assistants show off their Lip Sync skills and generally make fools of themselves for your viewing enjoyment. After that stick around for a gallery of activities and give-aways including Live Band Karaoke, Casino games, Lester & Body Art by Susan, Silhouettes, Caricatures, Facebook VIP Lounge, and Photo Dry Erase Boards.
Tuesday, Sept. 1
9:09 p.m. – Craig Karges @ EJ Thomas Hall
Craig Karges combines the art of magic with the science of psychology and the power of intuition to create the impression that nothing is impossible. Tables float, minds are read, metal bends and your imagination is challenged because you won’t believe your eyes! Comedian Dennis Miller put it this way after seeing Karges perform, “This weirds me out!”
Craig has made over 40 national television appearances. You’ve seen him on The Tonight Show, Larry King Live, CNN, Fox News Channel, CNBC, E! Entertainment Television, Lifetime Television, Wisdom Television, and SOAPnet! He has starred in two, one-hour television specials. The sheer number and diversity of Karges’s television appearances are indicative of his widespread popularity!
