AU Brings in Comedian for Homecoming Event

By Melissa Beneke

Standup Comedian, Michael Palascak, entertained students with a lineup of jokes about family, life experiences and relationships on Thursday evening in the University Banquet Hall.

The night started out a little rough with a few technical difficulties: a broken microphone and speaker. However, the rough start did not stop the audience from having a good laugh.

Right away, Palascak started the night off right as he thanked everyone for inviting him to come out and made a joke about the broken speaker.

Palascak’s jokes enticed AU students Thursday Oct. 13, at 10 p.m. He was energetic and funny. He had a great variety of jokes that the crowd really enjoyed.

Loud bursts of laughter could be heard throughout UBH. Here is a sample of Palascak’s act:

“Oh Michael,” Palascak joked as if he was one of his friends. “I met this really pretty girl that I went out with and then we decided to be just friends and I thought of you.”

Palascak jokes that his relationship with women consists of meeting a beautiful girl and hanging out with her, but they never actually start dating. They only remain friends. His experiences are not uncommon to many young adults.
