Comedian Marc Theobald performs two shows at Rochester Institute of Technology this weekend-at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Sept. 11 in Ingle Auditorium, Student Alumni Union. Theobald opened for Saturday Night Live alum Tracy Morgan this past spring and is now back in his own right as the headline act.

A versatile comedian, Theobald has performed at a number of New York's hot spots, including Caroline's Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, Stand-Up New York and Uptown Comedy Club.

Employing his sketch artist talents and physical style, he keeps audiences entertained with a cast of characters including Peace Man-a militant poet who talks about everything but peace-and W. Whitman, an inattentive talk show host.

With a style of comedy inspired by Chris Rock and Richard Pryor, he's described as a creative, approachable, likeable comic with a strong point of view.

Tickets are $5 general admission and will be available at the door.
