Comedian Preacher Lawson to perform Sept. 8

FORT KENT, Maine — Preacher Lawson will perform live at the University of Maine at Fort Kent on Friday, Sept. 8, 2017, at 7 p.m. in the Fox Auditorium.

The comedian is on the current season of “America’s Got Talent.” He began writing jokes when he was 16, and in 2015 was deemed the “Funniest Comedian” in Florida. In 2016 he won the Seattle International Comedy Competition, and this year made his television debut.

The performance is free and open to the public, and is sponsored by UMFK’s Student Activities Office. Donations will be accepted to benefit UMFK’s Stacy’s Closet, a project aimed at alleviating barriers for all campus students who lack financial means to purchase basic, everyday toiletries.

For more information, contact Teresa Biggs, associate director of student activities and diversity programming, at 231-0909.
