‘Big Laughs on Campus’ Offers Free Yuks to Help Bucks Students Nov. 19
New monthly online series with nationally touring comedians continues; tickets are free with donations encouraged for BCCC Foundation fundraisers for students
Bucks County Community College invites you to get your “humor degree” with “Big Laughs on Campus,” a live monthly virtual comedy series that gives back to Bucks students.
Hosted by comedy veteran Marc Kaye, the series features nationally touring comedians who are now headlining directly from their couches, kitchens or living rooms. The laughs get rolling from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. every third Thursday through December. Tickets are free, but donations are suggested to benefit various fundraising campaigns by the Bucks County Community College Foundation to help Bucks students.
Comedy host Marc Kaye
Kaye has performed in clubs across the country, often finding that there are no real regional differences that can’t be overcome with humor. An avid writer and musician, Kaye has also written scripts, web series, and numerous humor articles, and written and trained for Fortune 500 Companies. He is the founder of Eliro (eliro.us), a company that combines the discipline of marketing and the creativity of humor and improv to help train, develop content, and drive strategic planning.
The next event, Thursday, November 19, features comedians Chris Coccia and Mahesh Kotagi.
Comedian Chris Coccia
Coccia, a frequent guest on several Philadelphia radio shows, works everywhere from the country’s top comedy clubs to corporate events to colleges. He’s a past winner of the Purina Pet Comedy Challenge, a national event with a $10,000 prize, and has appeared on Comedy Central, The Game Show Network, and XM Radio.
Comedian Mahesh Kotagi
Kotagi can be spotted in comedy clubs in both New York City and Los Angeles. He was voted “best of the fest” at the 2019 Burbank Comedy Festival, and recently appeared at the Red Clay, San Luis Obispo, and San Diego comedy festivals. Kotagi also co-hosts a podcast called “No More Tokens!” about diversity and inclusion in Hollywood and the entertainment industry.
Donations are accepted for the college’s Gateway to Economic Self-Sufficiency scholarship, a collaborative student support effort between the college and the Bucks County Opportunity Council. Go to tinyurl.com/DonateBucks to make a donation.
“Big Laughs on Campus” continues December 17 with Tracy Locke and Sean Conway, benefiting the Bucks Student Emergency Fund.
