Campus comedy show hurts cheeks

Paying $90 per ticket for another Jeff Dunham or Tosh.0 concert will forever seem silly after catching a night of free comedy at the Event Center on campus with comedians Andy Kern and MTV’s “Disaster Date” star K-von on Tuesday night.
It is entertainment like this that makes going to school activities an unforgettable experience. The booming laughter must have echoed out of the Event Center because students continued to tiptoe in until nearly every seat was filed.
Both comedians had the crowd rubbing their cheeks and opening their mouths attempting to ease the pain from all of the laughter. Kern’s gentle jab at how women are so obsessed with being younger that his 21-year-old niece got Botox and now looks 20 had the group rumbling approval at his remark.
“If you want to look younger, just get braces,” Kern said, following by telling the crowd how his 75-year-old girlfriend added braces to her dentures and now looks 12.
From jokes about how people look like their dogs, to his horrible disease called CBD (Cheap Bastard Disorder), student’s laughter grew louder and louder.
Kern wrapped up his segment and prepared the crowd for the magnetic K-von who won the students over almost instantly. Although California State University, Stanislaus is the 70th school he has performed at in the last 12 months, his energy gives the illusion that he’s never told these jokes before and cannot wait to experience a reaction.
Each newcomer who walked in late was a victim for comedian K-von who made sure to let them know everyone had already received their comedy beating for the night and it was simply their turn.
“I just stole your laugh-ginity,” K-von said within the first five minutes of his act to all the first time audience members who had never been to a comedy show.
His set covered some of the most relatable and naturally funny material for students, and his honest and personable attitude made each subject seem incredibly fresh.
K-von managed to tie in some positive messages throughout his skits, especially by encouraging this generation to not be so sensitive.
The group held their stomachs while laughing  following his encouragement for everyone to be friends.
“Jocks need the nerds to teach them that hydrogen and helium make water, and nerds need the jocks to tell them Jack and Coke gets you laid,” K-von said.
Everyone appeared to lower their guard during the two-hour event. Strangers looked at each other, laughed and made comments about how hilarious each joke was.
At the end, K-von made sure to ask the group if they all felt equally offended before graciously thanking them and jumping off the stage to greet every attendee and take photos.
The show made for a strong finale of the free comedy show series as well as an enjoyable introduction to the beginning of Warrior Week.
