Comedy Central comedian brings laughs to SDSU

 Jack’s Place was filled with laughter as comedian Maronzio Vance made a stop by SDSU on Jan. 31. He is a writer for TV show and comic strip The Boondocks, and has made many television appearances. He is most famous for his Comedy Central stand-up special, “The Half Hour.” Vance was sponsored by the Multicultural Center. 

Willie Harmon, program adviser, was able to get in touch with Vance through one of the many promotional emails that he receives. The Funny Business Entertainment Agency sent Harmon an email about Vance and everything else was set up from there. 

The comedy show that Vance put on for students was amusing. Instead of just telling jokes, Vance involved the audience the entire show. He was coming up with things off the top of his head just by talking with the audience members. 

“The show was great, it was edgy and fun,” said John Green, junior geography major. 

Vance also mentioned several times how much he disliked the cold temperatures here in South Dakota. In the end, he did a short recap of the night and ended with the audience laughing. All in all the comedy show that Vance put on was very entertaining. 

“I really liked how he talked with the audience and not at them,” said Sara Hahn,
