He’ll bring his stand-up comedy show to the Hult Center in Eugene on Friday, May 19th; he speaks with KLCC's Eric Alan from the CNN studios.

Over seventy artists, musicians, and dancers will explore the theme of “Marginalized Voices,” in the Platform Festival at the EMU on the UO Campus on Saturday evening, May 6th.
