Updated: March 13, 2014

Northwest Missouri State University’s Student Activities Council has announced that comedians Andrew Schulz, Nicole Byer and Chris Distefano of MTV’s “Guy Code” and “Girl Code” will appear in SAC’s spring comedy show.

The show starts at 7 p.m. Friday, March 14, at the Charles Johnson Theater, located in the Olive DeLuce Fine Arts Building. The event is free and open to the public.

“We chose to bring these particular comedians to campus because their material is relative to college life, and students can relate,” said Jake Rosenquist, director of entertainment for SAC. “We expect students to get the chance to interact with the comedians and possibly bring up some questions they may have. It is also a good chance to see some cast members of an MTV show.”

Byer replaces Jamie Lee who was initially scheduled to appear at Northwest but had to cancel.
