Kristin Birkey, graduate assistant for student affairs, said much of Jordan's humor is college-specific, "so his material will really resonate with the audience here."

"As we approach the end of the semester, we all need something fun to take our minds off things from time to time," she said. "Ronnie Jordan will provide us with some comic relief. He will have you laughing off your chair."

Jordan was crowned "Rookie of the Year" in 2001 by the Uptown Comedy Corner, Atlanta, after his first year on the comedy scene. He has shared concert dates with stand-up heavyweights Rick Smiley, Earthquake, Mike Epps, Arnez J. and Dave Chappelle. He has been featured on BET's Comic View, Martin Lawrence Presents the 1st Amendment Stand-up, P. Diddy Presents Bad Boys of Comedy and hosts the successful Atlanta based video show, Oomp Camp Live.

Admission is free and open to the public, and free parking is available on campus. Student Union Board is sponsoring the event.
