TTU to host comedy show to promote diversity

Provided by the Texas Tech University Cross-Cultural Academic Advancement Center

Despite culture, creed or color, Texas Tech University's Cross-Cultural Academic Advancement Center is making an effort to unite diverse communities through comedy and laughter at 7 p.m. Tuesday (Aug. 26) in the Allen Theater for the “Most Races Show on Earth” comedy show.

Four well-known comedians of different nationalities are scheduled to perform: Neil Bansil (creator and producer of “The Most Races Show on Earth”), Mia Jackson (Oxygen's “Girls Behaving Badly”), Dave Merheje and Noah Gardenswartz (NBC's “Stand-up for Diversity). Comedians are given 15-20 minutes to deliver their material of choice, offering a fast-paced show of filler-free comedy. Texas Tech's very own improv comedy team, Flying Tortillas, also will perform during the show.

The show's goal is to bring diverse people together to laugh, explore and encourage diversity and promote a deeper understanding and appreciation for people from all backgrounds.

After the show the comedians will take questions from students and discuss their own unique views regarding race and comedy.

Admission is free and open to the public.
