Entertainment is sometimes a hard thing to come by at Western Carolina University. Last Minute Productions, WCU’s source for entertainment through movies, concerts and other events, has a full schedule this year packed with new events for students.
LMP’s big event this fall will be a comedy show featuring Bo Burnam in the Bardo Arts Center, formally known as the Fine and Performing Arts Center, on Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m. LMP has not announced the opening acts for Bo Burnham, but they do promise a very entertaining and very funny night.
Burnham is best known for his YouTube videos, which have about 100 million views, and for his stand-up comedy. He is also well known for music and rapping. He is currently signed to Comedy Central Records where he is the youngest person to record a comedy central special.
