Humorist, author and Daily Show resident expert John Hodgman to speak on campus
Posted by Melissa Weber on Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2012
Event Date/Time: Saturday, Feb. 11, 2012 8:00 pm
Location: Edson Auditorium, Student Center
Come enjoy a night of silliness and laughs at “That is All, An Evening With John Hodgman” on February 11, 2012, at 8 p.m. in Edson Auditorium.
John Hodgman is a New York Times bestselling author and the “resident expert” on the The Daily Show With John Stewart. He has published a “trilogy of complete world knowledge” — three books consisting completely of false facts. His most recent book, That is All, was released last November to critical acclaim. You might also recognize him as the “PC man” from commercials for Apple computers.
Mr. Hodgman will explain and illustrate most every subject you can imagine, including: how to enjoy fine wine, how to commit the perfect crime, how make money and find happiness as a deranged millionaire, the coming global superpocalypse known as RAGNAROK, and, if pressed, sports.
There will also be some ukulele playing.
People who may be pregnant and/or prone to seizures please note: John Hodgman will be performing without shoes or socks.
Tickets will be available beginning Tuesday, January 24, 2012, at the Information Desk/Higbies in the University of Minnesota, Morris Student Center. Ticket prices are $10 for University of Minnesota, Morris Students and $15 for faculty, staff and general admission.
