Part of Hancher's 51st season

Entertainment Weekly has described Roy Wood Jr.’s thought-provoking comedy as “charismatic crankiness” and he’s bringing both characteristics to the Hancher stage!

He is an Emmy-nominated comedian, writer, producer, actor, radio personality, and podcaster primarily known for his stand-up comedy and work as a correspondent on The Daily Show. In 2017, he was named the host of Comedy Central’s This Is Not Happening. He has performed several stand-up specials on Comedy Central—and his second special, Roy Wood Jr.: No One Loves You, remains the network’s highest-rated original stand-up premiere. See why when you join us for a hilarious night of comedy.

PLEASE NOTE: This performance will include adult language and themes and may not be appropriate for all audiences.
