'Another Period's' Natasha Leggero kicks off UCF's Pegasus Palooza


  • Mandee Johnson
UCF’s Pegasus Palooza Welcome Week kicks off with glamour gal Natasha Leggero, but you don’t have to be a student to attend. Leggero is a Comedy Central favorite whose popular historical satire show, Another Period, has been making funny waves – but we remember her best for her selfless acts of community service, like the time she brought our single friend onstage at a sold-out show in Chicago for an impromptu dating game and landed her a night out with a perfectly nice young man with a 401(k). Laughter and financial security? Yes, please! Opening act Nate Bargatze is no slouch either. Most chuckle fans know him for his multiple appearances on Conan and Fallon or his one-hour special, Full Time Magic, but we remember him from the time we tried to introduce ourselves at a comedy festival in Omaha and he maybe didn’t hear us because he walked away. It was pretty windy though – you know about Omaha’s famed conversation-interrupting winds! It’s not a big deal to us, we never remember it and cringe! Ha ha ha! Anyway, come make your own memories with two of the funniest stand-up acts around at the CFE Arena this Wednesday.

7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 24 | CFE Arena, 12777 N. Gemini Blvd. | 800-745-3000 | cfearena.com | $20
