WHAT:           “The Most Races Show on Earth” Comedy Show

WHEN:           8 p.m. Tuesday (Aug. 25)

WHERE:         Texas Tech University Student Union Building – Allen Theater

In an effort to unite communities through comedy, Texas Tech University's Cross-Cultural Academic Advancement Center is hosting its annual comedy show, “The Most Races Show on Earth,” at 8 p.m. Tuesday (Aug. 25) in the Student Union Building's Allen Theater.

This year's show will feature three comedians of different nationalities performing fast paced, filler-free comedy: KC Arora of Bridgetown Comedy Festival, Caleb Synan of NBC's “Last Comic Standing” and Peter Barrera of NBC's “Standup for Diversity.” Texas Tech's improv comedy team, Flying Tortillas, is also set to perform.

The Most Races Show on Earth aims to deliver unique, multicultural stand-up comedy that focuses on tackling ethnic stereotypes and educating students about diversity. Event attendees will be encouraged to laugh at their differences and better understand the message that funny is funny, no matter the culture, creed or color.

After the show, the comedians will take questions from students and discuss their own views on race and comedy.

Admission is free and open to the public.
