The University of Maine at Fort Kent will host a comedy night featuring comedian Chris "Boom Boom" Johnson on Wednesday, September 7 at 7:00 p.m. in the University's Fox Auditorium.

Johnson is one of the most energetic comics performing in the college market today. His fast paced delivery and improvisational skills have made him a favorite at college and universities throughout the country.

The comedian's humor easily relates to the life of an average college student as well as all adults looking for a good laugh.

His subjects include the differences between men and women, college drinking experiences, work related humor, and the every day problems of college students.

Johnson brings the audience back to their childhood by comically reminiscing through a variety of memories of playtime with some popular toys such as sit and spin, Slip and Slide, old board games like Clue and squirt guns.

Although popular childhood themes are used in Johnson's humor, the material he presents is not suitable for children and younger audiences.

UMFK is bringing Johnson to campus as part of its fall orientation program, however, the comedy event is open to the public.

"We welcome members of the community to join us for this event. It should be an enjoyable evening of comedy," said Scott Voisine, UMFK's director of student services and coordinator of the orientation program. "We very much want members of the community to participate, as it will demonstrate to our new students that the local community is an important part of campus life here."

Admission for community members to the comedy night is $5. UMFK students, faculty and staff will be admitted free of charge. Tickets will be sold only at the door on the evening of the event.
