College students seem to have a reliance on caffeine to get them through lectures and late night study sessions, but there are healthier alternatives to power through the day.

Friday marks the beginning of the weekend, and at TCU it often marks laughs hosted by theEnd. Such was the case when they hosted the notable Saturday Night Live comedian, Michael Che in the Brown-Lupton University Union Friday.

The room was filled with students and even some faculty ready to hear the comedian. According to students, this has been one of theEnd’s most anticipated events this year.

“I was really excited to see Michael Che,” said first-year student and Film, Television and Digital Media Libby Glenn. “SNL is one of my favorite shows, so I couldn’t wait to see one of the cast members in person!”

The night started with opener Ryan O’Flanagan, a stand up comedian who has appeared on Last Call with Carson Daily and New Girl. O’Flanagan was then followed up by the main event, Michael Che.

Che opened the evening up with taking question from the audience.

He is notorious for laughing at his own jokes during Weekend Update. When asked about his pattern of breaking, his one response was to laugh.

“People ask me that all the time, and honestly it’s because I think I’m hilarious,” said Che.

His routine was very similar to his content on SNL. His jokes ranged from current political tensions with President Trump to the struggles of online dating.

Che didn’t take a typical approach to his jokes about Trump. His fellow SNL cast mates have hounded Trump with jokes about his spray tan, hair and polices.

“I didn’t vote,” said Che. “Now I’m going to vote. Not even because of Donald Trump just because I paid my taxes this year.”

Che hosts Weekend Update on SNL Saturdays at 10:30. Hisstand-upp special, Michael Che Matters can be found on Netflix.
