Chris D’Elia featured as FallFest comedian

Chris D’Elia will be the featured comedian during this year's FallFest, UA Events Committee co-chair Laura K. Yenchesky ’19 told The Tech.

She hopes that this iteration of the event, which takes place Sept. 30 at 7:30 p.m., will sell out the 1,132-seat Kresge Auditorium. 

Yenchesky admitted that selling out Kresge is a lofty goal. 

She said the committee selected D’Elia because he offered a type of comedy that MIT students would enjoy, is currently popular, and was willing to perform at a reasonable cost. 

Her co-chair Victoria S. Petrova ’17 said that she hopes that D’Elia will appeal to “as much of the student body as possible.” 

The event itself is subsidized by funds that are provided to the committee through the SAO each year. 

A tie-in study break on the steps of W20 this Friday at 4 p.m. will be paid for by funds allocated in the UA budget. The study break is, among other things, a chance for the events committee to recruit by answering questions students might have about the committee.
