Mentalist Chris Carter
August 24, 2016 8pm @ Hansen
A Christopher Carter performance is the closest thing to pure mind reading your students will ever see. But it’s more than just amazing, it’s also really funny! Christopher starts each performance with a demonstration of his skill at reading body language. The audience is thrilled as he ‘reads their minds’ by reading their nonverbal behavior, then they’re amazed as he explains a few of the ‘tells’ that allowed him to read them so easily. From here things take a turn to the surreal. Soon Christopher is reading not just one, but dozens of students in the audience, revealing secrets and details about them that he simply should not be able to know.

Join our intrepid DJ/hosts as they push ‘the big red button’ and launch the Throwback Time Machine, the craziest video dance party this side of the 21st Century. You’ll be transported back in time by our resident spinner as he drops the biggest tracks and the most memorable pop videos from the past five decades.

September 16, 2016 4pm @ Hansen

The Asia Project
October 15, 2016 8pm @ Hansen
As an aspiring novelist/astronaut/oil painter/brain surgeon/ninja, Asia never thought spoken word poetry would be his calling. But as with everything else we encounter in life while dealing with the illusive astrological joke we’ve come to know as destiny, here Asia stands: a cancer survivor who was won audiences throughout the country with a spoken word show that has been nothing less than an honest and genuine testimony of his life- a spoken word show that is always inspiring, sometimes gut-wrenching, and most often times comical buffoonery.

Back at it again with the battle of the bands! Get ready for Undercover 29! Watch as your peers take the stage and showcase their musical talents performing cover songs. This time around we have the talented Ivan Pacel as the host.
Based in Los Angeles, CA, Ivan brings the term “High Energy” to an entirely different level by delivering an unforgettable show unlike anything you have seen before. As funny as a stand-up comic, and as skilled as a Chinese acrobat, Ivan has appeared on MTV, America’s Got Talent, and the “Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” This is why he is a favorite among corporations, colleges, trade shows, comedy clubs, cruise ships, and on the Las Vegas Strip. Whether Ivan is blindly kicking a flaming torch over his head, juggling ping pong balls using only his mouth, or having you laughing so hard that you should have worn adult diapers to his performance, his show is sure to delight any size audience, no matter the venue.
