Kiry Shabazz

Tuesday, February 16

Add to Google Cal,Outlook,Yahoo,iCal

Blue Devil Productions is proud to present comedian Kiry Shabazz.

In April 2018, Kiry Shabazz made his network late night debut on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. Kiry grew up in the cold streets of Cleveland, Ohio. Not in a gangster kind of way, but literally -- Cleveland has really cold winters. Kiry was working at a restaurant in 2011 when he suddenly left all the glamor behind. He felt like he couldn’t truly be himself. A charismatic, witty, off-the-top comedian, whose hilarious punchlines have made him one of the best up-and-coming comics in Northern California. After shows he’s often told "your comedy changed my life." Which he can never be certain is a good or bad thing, sending him into a whirlwind of paranoia and insecurity. Kiry won the World Series of Comedy Competition and is the winner of the 2018 Stand Up NBC and also toured on the Stand Up NBC Comedy Tour.

2021 Samuel E Wood Award Application Open!

 The Samuel E. Wood Award for Student Leadership looks to recognize our Student Leaders who will be graduating in the coming Spring and following Fall, for their non-academic contributions to the community at UW-Stout.     This includes but is not limited to leadership in Student Organizations, Housing, Greek Life, Preforming Arts, Athletics, On-Campus Employment, and so on. We want to hear your involvement stories and see how you have improved as a person, helped improve others, or the campus!

This is a very prestigious award only given to less than 1% of graduates each year, it is also the highest non-academic award any student at UW-Stout can achieve!

There is an application process which will also require at least two letters of recommendation from people who are aware of our involvement in the Stout Community, and a cover letter along with the application so those who will be reviewing the applications can get a better sense of you and our involvement at Stout!

More details such as the application, style guide, specific examples of what we are looking for and more can all be found on the SSA Connect Website.     If you have any questions about the application, award, or process please reach out to Chris Johnson Vice President of Stout Student Association at ssavicepres@uwstout.edu
