You can do anything you put your mind to…wait, no you can’t. According to comedian Chris D’elia, we may think we are special; think we have our own theme music; think we are men (and women) on fire, but actually, we are just extras in someone else’s movie. The 36-year old actor/funny man, who looks like a cross between Pau Gasol, Marc Maron and a young Kenny Loggins, laid down some hilarious bits during a Parent’s Weekend show at Syracuse University last night. Of course, some of the jokes provided some good old fashion shock value for some of the parents, but the students laughed anyway (in the seats right next to them) at subjects such as bear encounters, buying pants for your man friend, and the difficulty of digesting too much Chipolte and Kit Kats.
D’elia has the physical comedy of a young Jim Carrey and by the time he reached the closing segment about his friend’s daughter Onica, he had the entire crowd totally hooked.
D’elia has starred in sitcoms Whitney and Undateable.” His next comedy gigs are in Albany.
Michael Lenoci opened the show.
Michael Lenoci was the opening comic for Syracuse University’s Parent’s Weekend. The show was produced by University Union.
Plenty of socially conscious athletes have come through the Salt City (from Jim Brown and Oren Lyons to Melo), but one we often overlook is deserved MLB Hall of Famer Carlos Delgado, whose protest came that season he came to do a rehab stint with the Chiefs.
On the Dixon Schwabl podcast (Syracuse’s) Donna McLaren gave some great advice for managers and business leaders courting new challenges.
