Tickets Still Available for Homecoming Comedian

10/11/11 ASHLAND, OH -- Tickets are still available for the actor and comedian Dean Edwards who will be the Ashland University Homecoming comedian Friday, Oct. 14, at 8 p.m. in Redwood Hall. This event is sponsored by Ashland University's CAB and Tech Crew.

Tickets for the comedy event are $15 for general admission, $10 for Ashland University faculty and staff, and $2 for Ashland University students with ID and are available at the Ashland University Box Office at 419.289.5125.

Edwards has been making his mark in comedy following two successful seasons as a cast member on "Saturday Night Live." With such memorable impressions as Don Cheadle, Michael Jackson and Denzel Washington, as well as such original characters as "Man in Elevator" and "Cop#2," Edwards has pushed himself to the limits of creativity and exhaustion.

Always the multi-tasker, he has found the momentum to juggle his SNL career, his numerous standup appearances and multiple television appearances. Edwards most recently appeared in Showtime's "Comics Without Borders," the nine-week comedy series which showcased multi-cultural stand-up comedians. He also helped workshop and create the character of Donkey for nearly two years, leading up to Dreamworks' "Shrek The Musical" on Broadway.
