Big Laughs on Campus’ Offers Free Yuks to Help Bucks Students April 15
Bucks Live! online series with nationally known comedians continues April 15; tickets are free with donations encouraged to help Bucks students
Bucks County Community College invites you to get your “humor degree” with “Big Laughs on Campus,” a live, online monthly comedy series that gives back to Bucks students.
Hosted by comedy veteran Marc Kaye, the series features nationally known comedians 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. Tickets are free, but donations are suggested to the Bucks County Community College Foundation to help Bucks students.
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.
Brought to you by the Bucks Live! cultural series, the next event features comedians Chip Chantry with Jared Bilski on Thursday, April 15. This performance is for mature audiences only.
Chantry is a stand-up comedian and television writer. He has written for Crazy Talk, a comedy/talk series for NBC Universal and the syndicated series Whacked Out Sports. He most recently wrote on the NatGeo series Howie Mandel’s Animals Doing Things. Chip was the winner of 2013’s Philly’s Phunniest Contest at Helium Comedy Club, where he was a regular performer. Chip also won the Funniest Comedian award in Philadelphia’s annual Comedy Awards in both 2012 and 2014, and was named Best Comedian 2018 by Philadelphia Magazine. Chip is a recurring guest on the Doug Loves Movies and Todd Glass Show Podcasts.
Bilski has performed at every local bar, firehouse, social club and bowling alley that decided to put together a comedy night, and has opened for national headliners like Craig Shoemaker, Jim Breuer, Robert Kelly and Adam Ferrara.
Although tickets to access the online event are free, donations are encouraged to the BCCC Foundation’s Fighting Food Insecurity Fund, established to help Bucks students with groceries and other needed essentials. Go to tinyurl.com/DonateBucks to make a donation. Under “Area of Support,” please select “Fighting Food Insecurity Fund” from the drop-down menu.
Free tickets for the live, online event must be reserved at bucks.edu/tickets. A link to view the performance will be sent by email after registration.
“Big Laughs on Campus” concludes for the season May 20 with Matt Jenkins and Scott Brennan.
