PRESS RELEASE - September 4, 2007
Comedian Evan Wecksell Announces Helping Hand Comedy Tour 2007 

Fraternity Alumnus, Musical Comedian Evan Wecksell announces September comedy tour through the Midwest and California. 

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, CA (OPENPRESS) September 4, 2007 - He may no longer be in college, but Musical Comedian Evan Wecksell is returning to his fraternity roots in a big way.

From Thursday, September 6 to Friday, September 21, Wecksell has announced his "Helping Hand Tour 2007," a thirteen-show stint across the Midwest and California where most of the shows will be recruitment events for Theta Chi, an international fraternity he joined while attending Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts.

Wecksell will also perform for Chi Phi Fraternity at Indiana University on Friday, September 7 and Delta Chi Fraternity at Depauw University on Monday, September 10.

While many fraternity recruitment events are meet and greets, the comedy show will provide the fraternities an attractive difference in their schedule by appealing to students who may not initially want to rush the Greek system.

At 28, Wecksell is young, but his experience is beyond his years. He performs over 100 shows every year and has appeared on such pop culture television shows as VH1's "I Love the 80s 3D" and E!'s "30 Most Outrageous Celebrity Feuds."

"Those clip shows were great exposure," says Wecksell. "After one aired, my mom's coworker came in the next day and asked, 'Do you know a comedian on TV named Evan Wecksell?' That keeps my mom in the loop."

Since moving to Los Angeles in 2005, Wecksell also built an acting career that now includes several film, commercial and industrial projects.

Wecksell's tour kicks off September 6 at the University of Kansas. This show will take place in the Student Union.

"Personally, I am ecstatic," says Mitch Creed, Recruitment Chair of Theta Chi at University of Kansas.

Other shows will take place in the fraternity house itself such as the long awaited appearance at Ball State University on Tuesday, September 11.

Ryan Stemen of Theta Chi Fraternity at Ball State is as excited for the show as anyone. "He needs to come to Ball State! That is all i am going to say," exclaims Stemen. "Come. Play. Meet some really great folks. Laugh. Dance. Sing. Make fun of Posh Spice."

The Midwest leg of the tour ends Monday, September 17 at Purdue University.

Wecksell will then tour Southern and Northern California where the last scheduled tour date is September 21 at University of the Pacific in Stockton. It will be Wecksell's second appearance at Pacific, however this time around it will be a schoolwide show.

"I did a rush event for Theta Chi in Spring 2006," recalls Wecksell. "I've been wanting to return ever since."

While Wecksell's schedule seems at capacity, he does not plan to end things in Stockton.

"Every day a different gig pops up," notes Wecksell. "Any day I can end up in any state. Welcome to the entertainment industry."
