Matt Bellassai's comedy tour visits campus March 16

Internet comedian Matt Bellassai

People's Choice Award-winner Matt Bellassai will bring his 2018 comedy tour to Hanover College’s Collier Arena, Friday, March 16.

Bellassai, an internet sensation with millions of followers, will cap the Hanover Enrichment Series’ 2017-18 season with a 7 p.m. performance in Collier Arena.

Bellassai became a social-media comedy star through his online video series “Whine About It,” which generated more than 3.5 million weekly views. The series’ success ultimately led to him being honored in 2016 with the first People’s Choice Award for favorite social media star.

After more than three years as a comedy writer at Buzzfeed, Bellassai left to launch the web series “To Be Honest,” tour nationally as a stand-up comedian and write a book. His publication, "Everything Is Awful: And Other Observations," features a collection of humorous essays recounting moments from his life.

He currently produces the podcast, “Unhappy Hour with Matt Bellassai.” In each episode, he hilariously “muses on pop culture, the Internet and the struggles of life as a single, gay, would-be adult living in New York City.”

General admission tickets for Bellassai's appearance are now available. Seats cost just $15 each for adults, while tickets for children high-school age and younger (18-) are free.

The Hanover Enrichment Series is presented by Tricia and Will Hagenah, with additional support from the McManaman Trust, German American Bank and the Indiana Arts Commission.
