Diverse comedian uses humor to relate


Comedian Matt Glowacki will present “Diversity According to ‘South Park’ and ‘Family Guy'” at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the K-State Student Union Ballroom. The free event is open to the public.

More than 100,000 people have experienced the two-limbed Glowacki’s program in the past year and heard his message: No one should be surprised when people who live different lives achieve success.

“The show takes serious and uncomfortable topics and makes them funny and easy to discuss,” Georgia Campbell, Union Program Council member and senior in family studies and human services, said in a press release. “He also uses clips from ‘Family Guy’ and ‘South Park’ to make his point on the importance of acknowledging disabilities and diversity.”

There will be a reception and a chance to meet Glowacki before the event from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in the William T. Kemper Art Gallery in the Union, according to the press release. For more information, visit www.ksu.edu/upc or call the UPC office at 785-532-6571.
