Lawson began writing jokes when he was 16.  He was deemed the 2015 “Funniest Comedian” in Florida and winner of the Seattle International Comedy Competition in 2016.  He made his television debut on NBC’s “Last Call with Carson Daly” and on Comedy Dynamics’s “Coming To The Stage” this year.

The event is open free to the public, though monetary donations will be accepted. All donations will directly benefit UMFK’s Stacy’s Closet, a project aimed at alleviating barriers for all campus students who lack financial means to purchase basic, everyday necessities such as deodorant, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, and feminine hygiene products.

The performance is sponsored by the UMFK Student Activities office. For more information, please contact Associate Director of Student Activities & Diversity Programming, Theresa Biggs, at 231-0909.
