Bethlehem, Pa., March 11, 2008— Moravian will host an evening of comedy when VH1’s “Best Week Ever” Live comes to the College on Friday, April 4 at 8 p.m. in Johnston Hall. The performance stars comedians Chuck Nice, Pete Holmes, Laurie Kilmartin, and Mike Britt, all frequent panelists on the weekly VH1 show that analyzes the past week's developments in pop culture, including recent happenings in entertainment and celebrity gossip. At the end of every episode, the panelists name which celebrity, group of people, or object has had the “best week ever.”
Chuck Nice, from Philadelphia, has been doing stand-up comedy for ten plus years and has appeared in several television productions, including Fox’s “Mornings with Mike and Juliet” and MSNBC’s “The Most.” In addition to television, Chuck is heard daily in NY and San Francisco as the comic relief on the syndicated radio program “The Radio Chick.” He began at VH1 after answering an open call audition, and despite his busy schedule, still finds time to do stand-up at area clubs.
Pete Holmes is a New York-based stand-up comedian, improviser, and cartoonist. He's studied and performed at Boston's Improv Asylum, Chicago's Improv Olympic and Playground Theaters, and NYC's Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. Also, he designs t-shirts and writes for CollegeHumor.com. He has appeared on VH1's Best Week Ever and All Access programs, as well as Comedy Central's Premium Blend and "Honesty" series, and performs stand-up at clubs and colleges throughout the country.
Laurie Kilmartin, originally from San Francisco, currently lives in New York City.
