Comedian Michelle Wolf to speak at A&O event next week

Jonah Dylan, Managing Editor

Comedian Michelle Wolf will speak at A&O’s fall speaker event on Tuesday Oct. 9, the organization announced Wednesday.

Wolf gained popularity at the 2018 White House Correspondents Dinner when she sharply criticized President Donald Trump and Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. Earlier this year, her talk show, “The Break with Michelle Wolf” premiered on Netflix. The show, which Wolf has said included “the types of jokes my former bosses would tell me we couldn’t do on TV” was cancelled in August.

She worked for both The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and Late Night with Seth Meyers. Her comedy special “Michelle Wolf: Nice Lady,” premiered on HBO in 2017.

Anthony Devito, a standup comedian from New York, is opening for Wolf. The event will be in Cahn Auditorium at 7 p.m. Tickets are free and will be available online.
