The Activities Programming Board at Northern Kentucky University dove into spring semester events with their kickoff event Club Norse, which featured comedian Jonny Loquasto on Feb. 2 in the Student Union Ballroom.
The 30-year-old native of Pennsylvania traveled to NKU from Los Angeles, Ca. With a forte in the comedy trade, Loquasto engaged the audience with his quirky jokes and tendency to employ conversation with the audience members. His jests ranged from alcohol to Viagra to talking about taco Tuesdays.
His off-the-wall stories kept the audience in tune and wondering what he was going to say next. Loquasto mixed history with humor by incorporating inquiries with the elder generations.
“You can’t top what your grandparents have done,” Loquasto stated.
He referred to the fact that our grandfathers were part of a generation that served in World War II and questions how our stories to our grandchildren will even compare.
Loquasto compared relationships to the show Law and Order, saying similarities are evident because in a relationship girls accuse guys of committing an act and then leave them to figure it out “cold turkey.” Whether his theory is true or not, he decided to test the waters and ask couples in the audience about their personal relationship.
“Don’t stop, get it, get it,” Loquasto said when a couple spoke of meeting each other on Facebook and how they remember approaching each other. Laughs were shared as Loquasto then decided to exhibit a dating game.
Loquasto’s match making game ended poorly as the girls decided none of the guys were eligible bachelors.
Junior public relations major and president of APB Ron Burse heard of Loquasto at the regional conference held in Covington, Ky. Burse said you can access much of Loquasto’s humorous videos on Funnyordie.com.
Samantha Morris, a junior communication major who serves as the APB vice president, said, “Comedians have started to become anticipated from APB and are a good break from the stresses of school life.”
Although this was the first event held by APB this semester, they have many other events coming up, including Valentine’s Day Balloon Art on the second floor of the Student Union Feb. 14 Morris said.
