Comedian René Hicks will perform at 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 13, in the Lane University Center Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall at Frostburg State University.
Hicks is an internationally known comedian who has performed at over 600 colleges. She is determined to use her comedy to make a difference, using comedy as a form of activism. Her goal is to always provide entertainment that is hilarious but also helps lead to the break down of barriers that contribute to social and cultural isolation and intolerance.
Before she was a comedian, inspirational speaker, cancer survivor and humor healer, Hicks grew up as the daughter of a Pentecostal preacher, was a nationally ranked distance runner, graduated college with a degree in accounting and worked for one of the largest international firms. Hicks promotes the power of laughter as a healing, coping, life enhancement and enrichment tool.
