Ron Funches, Alex Moffat, Anna Drezen and Streeter Seidell will headline the 17th annual Student Association Comedy Series.

On Tuesday morning, SA announced the four comedians as this year’s lineup for the Friday, March 30 show at the Center for the Arts.

This year’s comedy series will see two shows, which a change from SA’s usual one show format. The two performances will take place at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m., with all four comedians performing twice.

Funches has starred and contributed to several Comedy Central and Adult Swim talk shows and sketch shows, including his reccurring role on “@midnight” and writing for “The Eric Andre Show” and “Kroll Show.” One of Funches’ most prominent recurring roles was in the NBC sitcom “Undateable” as Shelly.

Moffat will also be performing at the Comedy Series. Moffat is currently a “Saturday Night Live” cast member, having joined the show in 2016. He has impersonated many celebrities including Conor McGregor and Eric Trump.

Drezen will be hitting the stage on March 30. Drezen has written for SNL since 2016, and her stand up has been featured on Comedy Central’s website.

Fellow SNL writer Seidell will also be making an appearance on the Friday night. Seidell rose to fame as a cast member on CollegeHumor’s online skits. From there, the comedian’s “Prank Wars” series went viral, leading him to host MTV’s “Pranked.”

SA Entertainment Director Matt Cosmai said SA is excited about the diversity in the show’s lineup.

“These are four very talented comedians, each of whom bring something different to the table. There’s really something for everyone to enjoy,” Cosmai said.

Cosmai was unable to disclose the Comedy Series’ budget at time of inquiry. Last year’s comedy series, which took place in Alumni Arena and starred Trevor Noah, cost $110,000 to produce.

Cosmai said he anticipates tickets being available in early March. Students will be able to register for tickets online in order to pick them up in person at the SBI Ticket office.
