On Wednesday, September 12 at 7:30pm, the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Students will host Mike Birbiglia, Hasan Minhaj, Jean Grae, John Hodgman, and Roy Wood Jr. for an evening of stand-up comedy and voter registration.  The event, which will be held in Richardson Auditorium, kicks of the Vote 100 initiative and is free and open to the Princeton University community. Birbiglia says, “If I could go back in time I would have started voting when I was younger. To help encourage students to vote I'm planning shows at colleges. These are the exact lineups I would want to see at a comedy show so I just booked the shows myself.”

All net proceeds from the shows go to HeadCount, Rock The Vote, and Vote.org, three non-profit, nonpartisan organizations that register voters and encourage voter turnout.
