Andrew Fisher Comedy Show

homeFrom Olivia Chavez ’15:

Born deaf and hilarious, Andrew Fisher has put his unique perspective to work as one of the most captivating comedians on the New York scene.

Though it may seem unexpected for all audiences to be able to enjoy jokes told in American Sign Language, Sean Kelly, editor of National Lampoon magazine and former writer for SNL, has lauded Andrew’s ability to take advantage of his disconnect with the audience. Through a combination of flawlessly physical comedy and expertly timed delivery, Andrew will make you rethink everything you think you know about what makes comedy work.

Sponsored by Sign Language House and Wesleyan Students for Disability Rights.

A very unique concert experience for your Saturday night:

A new generation of artists have come together to create a thriving music community in Osaka, Japan. Now, they’re coming to America.

If you feel like today’s electronic music is hitting a period of inertia, it’s time to widen your borders and get moving again. Here is a chance to get acquainted with the innovative, thrilling, and always challenging sounds coming from one of the world’s most exciting new cultural scenes.

A liaison between Osaka and the rest of the world, Erik aka Magical Mistakes was first inspired by Osaka’s music scene as a student a resolved to move there. His newest productions are bridging the gaps between the rhythms of the club and the more introspective spaces found in nature.

Seiho takes his formal training in jazz, influence from the creative mecca that is Los Angeles, and all that has been labeled ‘post-dub-step’ and melds together a truly unique brand of funky dance music.

As a producer, And Vice Versa’s newest works are serious, sharp, calculated lo-fi techno freakouts. A perfect way to bring in the early hours of the AM.

Date: tonight — Saturday, April 5
Time: 10 PM – 1 AM
Place: Eclectic
Cost: free w/ Wes ID
