News & Notes: PC guy to perform at the Comedy Show during Houseparties weekend

Comedian John Hodgman will perform at the Comedy Show on Friday night during Houseparties, the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students announced Monday in a Facebook post.

Hodgman, a Yale graduate, is best known for his gig on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and for his role as the PC in Apple’s “Get a Mac” advertising campaign with Justin Long as the Mac. He also had appearances in a few movies, including “Baby Mama,” “Coraline” and “Arthur.”

In addition to stints on a number of radio shows and online programs, Hodgman has also written three books — “The Areas of My Expertise,” “More Information Than You Require” and “That Is All” — in addition to many articles.

The annual Comedy Show will begin at 10 p.m. on May 2, and the doors will open at McCosh 10 at 9:30 p.m.

Quipfire! Improv Comedy will open for Hodgman, and there will be a free pancake breakfast in Campus Club after the show until 1 a.m.
