‘Big Laughs on Campus’ to help Bucks students

The new monthly online series with nationally touring comedians hosted by Marc Kaye starts Thursday; tickets are free with donations encouraged for BCCC Foundation fundraisers for students


Bucks County Community College invites the public to get a “humor degree” with “Big Laughs on Campus,” a monthly virtual comedy series that gives back to Bucks students.

Hosted by comedy veteran Marc Kaye, the series features nationally touring comedians who are now headlining directly from their couches. The laughs get rolling from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m., every third Thursday, from September to December. Tickets are free, but donations are suggested to benefit various fundraising campaigns by the Bucks County Community College Foundation to help Bucks students.

Kaye has performed in clubs across the country, often finding that there are no real regional differences that can’t be overcome with humor. An avid writer and musician, Kaye has also written scripts, web series, and numerous humor articles, and written and trained for Fortune 500 Companies. He is the founder of Eliro, a company that combines the disciplines of marketing and the creativity of humor and improv to help train, develop content and drive strategic planning.


The first event, Thursday, Sept. 17, features comedians Helene Angley and Mike DiAlto. Donations are encouraged to the BCCC Foundation’s Means to Succeed campaign, which helps students with emergency needs, at tinyurl.com/BucksSuccess.


“Big Laughs on Campus” continues Oct. 15 with Mark Riccadonna and Adrian Colon, benefiting the college’s Fighting Food Insecurity Fund; Nov. 19 with Chris Coccia and Andrea Silverstein Glaser, benefiting the college’s Gateway to Economic Self-Sufficiency scholarship; and Dec. 17 with Tracy Locke and Sean Conway, benefiting the Bucks Student Emergency Fund.

Free tickets for these online events must be reserved at bucks.edu/tickets. A link to view the performance will be sent by email after registration.
