Kent State’s Undergraduate Student Government announced actress and comedian Amy Schumer will come to Kent State in December.

“We decided to bring Amy Schumer, because last year with Kevin Hart was a hit, and we really believed that having a comedian come a little before finals really helped everyone feel much better,” said Kevin Otubu, USG’s director of programming. “Students get very stressed, and being able to have some laughs is a great thing that students really liked.”

The announcement was made at country singer Hunter Hayes’ concert Friday night, which was also hosted by USG.

Schumer’s performance is Dec. 6 at 8 p.m. with the doors opening at 7 p.m.

Tickets go on sale Tuesday at 10 a.m. on USG’s website.
