SEC Presents: Big Show, Fall 2015

Hannibal Buress Avoiding Eye Contact

Hannibal Buress is performing at SEC Big Show 2015. Happy Monday.

When: October 2nd, Time TBD

Where: Williamson Sports Center, Skidmore College

Will I Actually Have to Spend Money: $5

Every fall semester, SEC hosts ‘Big Show’ in our friendly neighborhood gymnasium (apparently you can watch sport games there too). Big Show is always one of the grander, drunker, and more expensive events on campus, so everyone bitches and moans when it’s not what they want. The last several years have been dominated by music: Chance the Rapper, Action Bronson and Danny Brown, and Mayer Hawthorne were the big performers of the past three years. This fall, SEC is flipping the script and giving us comedy. Ha ha!

The headliner of this year’s Big Show will be Hannibal Buress, whose most recent projects include Broad City, 30 Rock, The Eric Andre Show, and Saturday Night Live for a hot second. In addition, he also had a hell of a standup set where he famously commented on Bill Cosby’s recent infamy. Here he is singing while dressed as Morpheus.

Opening for Buress will be a comedy act that is currently TBD.

Just out of pure curiosity, let us know what you think. We have our opinions over here at Skid Unofficial, but the campus’ are much more important. Please express your pleasure or distaste for SEC – we love your snarky critiques of Campus institutions.

Audience Note: Contrary to what happened at Tig Notaro’s standup set at last year’s ComFest, if a comedian calls you out during a performance it is NOT an invitation to plug your SoundCloud, LinkedIn, or Twitter handle. Spare us all the toe-curling cringe.

    this is the worst possible thing that could have happened to skidmore in the fall. such a bummer. music is what makes this event so special

    • Ok Then says:

      Here are 3 worse things:

      1) It never getting above 70 degrees for about 8 months

      2) Your lack of perspective being representative of the rest of the student body

      3) Ebola

  2. anon says:

    this is so disappointing and such a stupid decision.

  3. anon says:

    Hannibal Buress is one of the most consistently funny comedians out there right now; there really couldn’t have been a much better choice.

  4. okay says:

    so is comfest going to be a musical event now? dumb

  5. Jonze says:

    Okay, sure, SEC was once again too apprehensive to make a decision about bringing a band to Skidmore. But Hannibal Buress is one of the most relevant and funniest people out there now. Skidmore’s lucky to have him perform.

  6. J says:

    Such a great decision, Hannibal is one of the funniest up and coming comedians. It’s the only time I’ve been excited for Big Show in my four years at Skidmore.

  9. anon says:
