Cal Poly students will have a chance to get up close and be entertained by a couple of television’s favorite comedians with Associated Students, Inc. (ASI) Events Stand-Up Comedy showcase tonight.

Todd Glass and Geoff Brown have both appeared on NBC’s ‘Last Comic Standing” and many other hit TV shows. Admission is free.

“These guys have been really successful on the comedy circuit and have great reputations for making just about anyone laugh out loud,” ASI Events student manager Grant Zanini said.

Glass launched his comedy career at the age of 16 and is currently on a national tour with comedian David Spade. His TV appearances include performances on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Late Night with Conan O’Brien,” “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn,” “Politically Incorrect,” “The Dennis Miller Show” and “The Late Late Show With Craig Kilborn,” according to his Web site.

Glass has even performed on Comedy Central, headlining his own half-hour stand-up special, “Comedy Central Presents: Todd Glass.” His TV credits also include stints on “Home Improvement,” “Friends,” “Married With Children” and most recently NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.”

Brown began his career in the early 1990s as the winner of the Bay Area Black Comedy Competition and the 1994 Star Search Comedy Champion. He has since made appearances on many TV shows including, “Spy TV,” UPN’s “Girlfriends” and “Last Comic Standing,” according to an ASI press release.

Brown has also worked in radio, becoming a favorite on the nationally syndicated, “Bob and Tom Show,” and as a writer for, “Steve Harvey’s Morning Show.” He has even traveled the world on a U.S.O. comedy tour, performing for troops stationed in more than 20 countries.

“We wanted to get some comedians we think the students will know and enjoy,” Zanini said.

The doors will open at 7:30 p.m. Seating is limited and entry will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
