Sibs Weekend Logo

February 7-9, 2020

Sibs Weekend is a special time set aside each year to welcome OHIO siblings. Big and little sibs are invited to have a taste of college life and to bond with their brother or sister. Cousins and other family members are welcome, too!


Friday, February 7

Comedian, Preacher Lawson

8 p.m. | Templeton-Blackburn Memorial Auditorium 

One of the most likable, animated characters you'll ever see perform, Preacher Lawson has been sharing his brand of goofy, high-energy comedy around the world. He started writing jokes when he was 16, and a year later took his first steps onstage after his mom bet him he wouldn’t. Best bet of his life. Preacher's clean, energetic style will keep you on your toes and, more importantly, laughing. His meteoric rise began by winning the 2015 Funniest Comedian In Florida competition, and then in 2016 he won the Seattle International Comedy Competition. Following his selection as a Just For Laughs New Face in 2017, Preacher competed in that year’s season of America’s Got Talent, where he was the only comedian who made it to the finals.​
