Professional comics will perform free show Oct. 23 at FGCU

Nikko- Comedy ShowThe Florida Gulf Coast University Programming Board will be hosting its first comedy show of the semester at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 23 in the Cohen Center Ballroom. The free show will feature Adam Mamawala and Noré Davis.

Mamawala is an award-winning,  27-year-old standup comedian. He has performed at more than 150 colleges in 35-plus states. Mamawala also recently appeared on an episode of MTV’s “Girl Code.”

Davis is an actor, comedian and writer. He was most recently on “NickMom Night Out,” “Off the Chain” and “Gotham Comedy Live.”

Davis told ComedianUSA that, “People may tell me I’m a clown, maybe so, but a comedian is just as good as a doctor. Never underestimate the true power in laughter. Laughter is like medicine and I devote my life to it!”

“Noré and Adam are college comedians and are going to talk about topics relating to college and our generation,“ said Nikko Valderrosa, Programing Board’s comedy committee director. “The Programming Board hopes to get a good crowd to have a night filled with laughter.”

“I am really excited to see these comedians because even though they are not as well known, they are super funny,” said Kaitlynn Orlandi, a junior elementary education major. “I’m also excited to work the event and bring students an event where they can come for free and just enjoy a funny comedy show.”

The show will start with Mamawala and will close with Davis.
