Noted comedians Karith Foster and Andy Hendrickson will perform at 9 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 16, in the Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall at the Lane University Center. This event is free and open to the public.
By the age of 4, Karith Foster knew exactly what she wanted to do with her life. “I distinctly remember watching ‘Sesame Street’ and thinking, ‘I should be doing that!’” she said. Raised in Plano, Texas (the affluent suburb north of Dallas with the ethnic diversity of a Klan rally), Foster indulged her performing bug by starring in her high school’s all-white production of “A Raisin in the Sun.” She currently resides in New York City, where she performs weekly at a variety of comedy clubs, including the Boston Comedy Club, the Comic Strip, Gotham Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club and Stand-up New York Comedy Club.
Andy Hendrickson’s brand of humor, considered bizarre and sarcastic, is always evolving. His stage persona has been described as, “a touch of cynicism with a boy-next-door charm.” His twisted thinking sets audiences up with subtle comedic jabs, knocking them silly with outrageous punches. As a veteran of the comedy circuit, Hendrickson is known for his hilarious songs and off-the-cuff remarks. He has opened for Dave Chappelle, Lewis Black and Dave Attell.
