This Wednesday, Oct. 23, Georgetown Activities Council (GAC) will be putting on a Wacky Wednesday Comedy Slam. The opening comedian will be the acclaimed, yet extremely awkward and ironic Jacob Williams.
You may know Williams from his feature skit on “America’s Got Talent.” On the show, Williams advanced to the semi-finals. “America’s Got Talent” celebrity judge Howie Mandel claimed that Williams earned the title of “the best act of the night.”
In the years before his national television debut, Williams won many stand-up contests and performed for comedy specials on SHOWTIME. He has also been featured in E! News, Rolling Stone, and other forms of media. Williams is based in Chicago where he studied improvisation at the legendary Second City Training Center.
The headliner for this Wednesday is Dale Jones. You might have seen Dale Jones from Season 6 of “Last Comic Standing,” where he was a semi-finalist. Jones has also been featured on TBS, NBC, Fox and Canadian Comedy Central. He bases his work out of Nashville ,where he has been doing comedy since 1993. Jones, like Williams, studied at the world-renowned Second City in Chicago, and has toured throughout the United States, Canada and abroad.
GAC encourages you not to miss this amazing night of Comedy that will be taking part in the Grille Starting at 9 p.m.
