Sept. 17, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- Popular comedian and songwriter Stephen Lynch is set to perform at Western Michigan University Thursday, Sept. 19, at 9 p.m.

This show contains mature subject matter and is not be appropriate for all ages or audiences.

Lynch's one-man show, "I'll See You in Hell--An Evening of Love Songs," is sponsored by the Campus Activities Board and will be held in the Bernhard Center Ballroom. Tickets for the show are available at the door, starting one hour before the performance. Tickets are $1 with student ID, $2 without.

Since launching his career at New York's legendary "Catch A Rising Star," Lynch has garnered a loyal following that can't get enough of his signature twisted love songs. In August 2000, Lynch gained his first television special, "Comedy Central Presents Stephen Lynch." That was followed by a 41-city college tour in support of his debut CD, "A Little Bit Special."

Lynch has opened for such headline performers as Steven Wright, Jeff Foxworthy, Bobcat Goldthwait, Anthony Clark, Yo La Tengo and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. Television credits include hosting VH-1's Street Games as well as appearances on Comedy Central's "Premium Blend" and "Hi-Fi party", hosted by Sandra Bernhard and Issac Hayes.

Kalamazoo native and WMU alumnus Lynch moved to New York City in 1996. He received a bachelor of arts degree in theatre from WMU in 1993.
