Fraternity Brings Musical Comedy Show to Washington College

As part of their spring event calendar, Washington College's Theta Chi Fraternity announces a hilarious evening of comedy with Musical Comedian Evan Wecksell on Thursday, April 13 at Town Hall.

CHESTERTOWN, MD (OPENPRESS) April 10, 2006 – Before students head home for Easter break, Washington College is injecting some fresh, live entertainment into their schedule. On Thursday, April 13, in Town Hall of the Campus Center, Theta Chi Fraternity is hosting musical comedian Evan Wecksell.

At 27, Wecksell is young, but his experience is beyond his years.  Last year he performed over 175 shows across the country and made his television debut on VH1's "I Love the 80s 3D." Earlier this year he appeared on VH1's "I Love Toys."

"The Toys series was great for me," says Wecksell. "People now call me the Rainbow Brite guy. I don't think it gets any better than this."

Wecksell, a Theta Chi alum from Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, has already performed for other Theta Chi chapters across the country so when he contacted the Beta Eta chapter about performing at Washington College, President Mike Lynch immediately loved the idea.

"All of the brothers thought this would be an awesome event," says Lynch. "This is the type of thing we love to sponsor around campus."

Theta Chi's comedy night featuring Evan Wecksell takes place on Thursday, April 13 at 9:00 PM in Town Hall of the Campus Center. The show is free for all students.

About Evan Wecksell:
Stand-up Comedian and Singer/Songwriter Evan Wecksell is one of the funniest and most energetic performers to emerge from New York’s comedy clubs and musical venues. Often compared to comedic superstars Adam Sandler and Stephen Lynch, Evan’s act is a blend of comedy and music that celebrates dysfunctional relationships, endorses unorthodox career paths and makes fun of bad music. Last year, Evan appeared on VH1’s “I Love the 80s 3D,” and earlier this year he appeared on VH1's "I Love Toys." For more information on Evan Wecksell and to purchase his CDs, please visit
