Welcome Week - Comedian Cecily Strong
Tuesday, September 5 at 8:00pm
Edwards Auditorium 64 Upper College Rd, University of Rhode Island, Kingston, RI 02881, USA
URI's Student Entertainment Committee features actress, comedian, and Saturday Night Live cast member Cecily Strong.
Strong recently completed her fourth season at Saturday Night Live, for which she has earned rave reviews for her "Weekend Update" character "The Girl You Wish You Hadn't Started a Conversation with at a Party," which Rolling Stone hailed as an "instant classic." Her recurring character of a ditzy porn star-turned-aspiring-pitchwoman she plays alongside Vanessa Bayer also quickly became an audience favorite. Strong has co-hosted "Weekend Update" alongside both Seth Meyers and Colin Jost. Strong was raised in Oak Park, Ill., and has a BFA in theater from the California Institute of the Arts.
