Stand-up comic, columnist and author Steve Hofstetter brings his show, "Stand Up Comedy: I Don't Want a Real Job," a sarcastic look at college life, to Frostburg State University on Wednesday, Oct. 29, at 8 p.m. in Lane University Center 201.
Admission is $5 for FSU students and $8 for non-students. The show is sponsored by FSU's Hillel.
Hofstetter, 24, broke into the humor world with the irreverent Web site, "Sports Jerk of the Week," which he co-founded with his brother when he was just 18. After a few months, "Jerk of the Week" was already featured by press in several major cities, as well as USA Today's "Baseball Weekly."
As an undergraduate at Columbia University, Hofstetter began writing "Observational Humor" - a column that started as an e-mail to 20 people. Hofstetter's following quickly grew, and the column is now syndicated in eight states and boasts a weekly circulation of 65,000.
Hofstetter, a Columbia University graduate, released his first book, "Student Body Shots, a Sarcastic Look at the Best 4-6 Years of Your Life," soon after graduation.
Hofstetter's book was reviewed positively almost 100 times and is currently a five-star title on Amazon.com. Steve began traveling to colleges performing stand-up to promote the book, and also began writing for "Maxim" and "ESPN Magazine."
Hofstetter spends much of his time performing at colleges. He has recently appeared on episodes of NBC's "Ed" and "Law and Order," and plans on releasing his second book in the next few months.
