USPB Comedy presented comedian Sara Schafer on Sept. 12 in the Moskovitz Theater.
Schaefer is an Emmy-award-winning comedian and writer, famous for her MTV show “Nikki and Sara Live” and for her appearances on @Midnight, John Oliver’s New York Stand Up Show, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Best Week Ever and Inside Amy Schumer.
She lived up to her extensive list of credentials, as the entire theater was in laughs from the moment she stepped onto the stage. She brought a sense of togetherness through laughter about experiences college students share.
She poked fun at the trend of trite quotes painted on driftwood, hanging up in many of our peers dorms (but they only count if they have the words “dream”, “believe”, “sister”, “live”, “laugh”, “love”, “dance”. . . the list goes on). She also joked about petty arguing on social media, where posting about hating pizza one day, and then posting about liking it another day, can be a lightning rod of contention with those quick to label you a hypocrite.
She mixed current events and humor flawlessly, seamlessly combining laugh-out-loud moments and calls for social change in regard to our divisive political climate and the #MeToo Movement.
