‘Big Laughs on Campus’ Offers Free Yuks to Help Bucks Students
Online series with nationally touring comedians continues Dec. 17; tickets are free with donations encouraged for 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.
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, December 17, features comedians Tracy Locke and Sean Conway.
Comedian Tracy Locke

She has hosted television, live events and award shows, and co-founded the corporate training company Productively Funny. She was the warm-up comedian for the NYC audience of the Mel Robbins Show, and has also worked on the Harry Connick Jr. Show, The Meredith Vieira Show, Who Wants to be a Millionaire, and the Katie Couric Show. She co-hosts a weekly football-and-fun podcast called Girls Gone Green with fellow comedian Donna Vee, committed to changing the world one laugh at a time.
Comedian Sean Conway
Conway is a Philadelphia-based comedian and actor who recently graduated from Bucknell University with a bachelor’s degree in theater.
