Faces of Campus: Alex Lacey

Interview with Alex Lacey, Buckeye Standup Comedy Club President

What are some places you would recommend going to check out Columbus’ standup?

There are a variety of open mics around the city, the best of which takes place at the Shrunken Head on Mondays at 9:00 p.m. The Buckeye Standup Comedy Club also puts on shows once a month at the Donatos on campus.

What is your favorite thing about standup?

Standup comedians get more freedom onstage than any other type of performer, which makes the performance very personal.

What is something you want OSU students to know about standup and the Buckeye Standup Comedy Club?

I’d want people to know that our members developed their skills over time, through trial-and-error. Telling jokes is a learned skill.

What is some advice you would give someone who is interested in trying standup?

Do it. Literally just get onstage and try it. That’s the biggest barrier by far, and there’s no better feeling than overcoming it for the first time. You can also come to our meetings, which take place in the Ohio Union every Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Send an email to [email protected] if you’re interested.
