Gainesville, TX (PRWEB) February 3, 2006
As students get settled back on campus for spring semester, the Student Life Department at North Central Texas College (NCTC) is injecting some fresh, live entertainment into their schedule to crack them up. On Monday, February 6 at the new First State Bank Center for the Performing Arts, North Central Texas College is hosting musical comedian Evan Wecksell.
At 26, Wecksell is young, but his experience is beyond his years. Last year he performed over 175 shows across the country and made his television debut on VH1's "I Love the 80s 3D."
"Best seven seconds of my life [being on VH1]," says Wecksell. "The best is when your relatives call you up and go, 'That's it? They should put you on more.'"
Wecksell and NCTC's Student Life Department met last fall at a regional campus activities conference, and after seeing him showcase, they knew he would fit well into their spring calendar.
"Our students who previously saw Evan perform are excited about having his musical comedy come to NCTC!" says Kim Brown, Director of Student Life. "They'll have a blast!"
Also part of this show is NCTC's new First State Bank Center for the Performing Arts. Having opened last April, this state-of-the-art dome-shaped venue has been called a "student and faculty dream come true."
"I've only seen pictures, but I'm sure it will exceed my expectations," says Wecksell. "I just hope it still has that new building smell."
Evan Wecksell's musical comedy show takes place on Monday, February 6 at 6:00 PM at the FSB Center for the Performing Arts on NCTC's Gainesville Campus. The show is free for all students, and tickets are $5 for the general public.
About Evan Wecksell:
Stand-up Comedian and Singer/Songwriter Evan Wecksell is one of the funniest and most energetic performers to emerge from New York’s comedy clubs and musical venues. Often compared to comedic superstars Adam Sandler and Stephen Lynch, Evan’s act is a blend of comedy and music that celebrates dysfunctional relationships, endorses unorthodox career paths and makes fun of bad music. Last year, Evan appeared on VH1’s “I Love the 80s 3D,” and later this year he will appear on VH1's "I Love Toys."
