The Bijou Theater showcased the “Homecoming Comedy Show,” presented by the Black Cultural Programming Committee Friday night.
Featured comedians included Nema Williams of Oakland, Calif., and Lav Luv and Sean Larkins, both from Atlanta.
The entertainers were introduced with music by a DJ from New Jersey who also participated in many of the comedians’ jokes.
Williams is an accomplished stand-up comedian well known throughout the comic community. He has appeared on BET’s “ComicView” seven times and Sean “Puffy” Combs’ “Bad Boys of Comedy” on HBO. In addition, Williams has also been selected for Cedric the Entertainer’s “Starting Lineup,” a group of promising new faces to comedy. His jokes centered around urban life.
The audience, though slim, received him well. Williams opened by making light of how few audience members were present, stating that he’d flown all the way from Brooklyn amid hurricane delays for the show.  
Menyata McKinley, undecided sophomore, enjoyed his antics.
“He was just really silly,” she said.
McKinley said her favorite part was Williams’ observations of the black church and its extended service compared to a Catholic church. She recommended the comedy show to others and looks forward to attending one next year.
Lav Luv has appeared on HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam,” BET’s “ComicView” and has showcased for comedic giants such as Chris Tucker and Bernie Mac. His most uproarious jokes dealt with college life, which was highly relatable to the audience.
Luv joked about the value of food on campus and how it nearly equates to money. Other high points in his performance incorporated an impromptu skit about the formula most record companies seek to fulfill when signing a new recording artist. He even pulled an audience member from the crowd to demonstrate.
The last comic was Sean Larkins, who has also appeared on “Def Comedy Jam” and “ComicView.” He made jokes about badly-run strip clubs, dating in college and tattoos on women. Larkins received much applause while speaking on roommates and how they are the sources of eaten food and cursing.
Victoria Brown, freshman in accounting, said she enjoyed the overall experience.
“I especially thought the Lav Luv (segment) was hilarious. They should bring the comedy show back to more homecoming events,” Brown said.
