Writer and stand-up comedian Maya May will perform for University of Colorado students at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 25. The event, hosted by the Center for Student Involvement and the Dennis Small Cultural Center, is part of CU’s celebration of Black History Month.
Since starting out in stand-up in 2014, May has made a name for herself with a number of high-profile performances. She has been featured at numerous comedy festivals and showcases nationwide, including the Boston Comedy Festival and Lady Laughs. The native Chicagoan and LA-based comedian is also the co-host of the Lincoln Project’s “We’re Speaking” podcast.
To craft her socially-conscious brand of comedy, she uses a mix of life experiences and observations about topics like race, politics and gender. May’s performance will provide students with fun, laughs and an insightful social commentary.
