Influencer and comedian Trevor Wallace performed a stand-up show for TCU students Friday night in the BLUU Ballroom.

Wallace is known for his podcast “Stiff Socks” in addition to his YouTube channel and stand-up comedy. The show garnered a big turnout and had students laughing the entire time.

“I think tonight was a success because Trevor Wallace is a comedian that many people enjoy, including college students. The audience was engaged and that made the show ten times more enjoyable,” Sophie Maass, sophomore nutrition major, said.

Junior economics major Sebastian Gutierrez said the show was a “welcomed break after the freeze,” and said that he prefers comedy nights like these in comparison to concerts since “they’d be able to get more relevant comedians as opposed to b-list musicians.”

“Every row was filled, and people seemed excited about it,” Becca Dieffenbach, sophomore business major, said. “I am a big fan of comedy nights. I think they are fun events to spend with friends, and they create funny, lasting memories. I love going to all types of events because I can spend time with my friends and create fun memories, whether that be through dancing together like fools or laughing together like fools.”

It was easy to tell the impact the show had on students, especially after the week of inclement weather. People were leaving with smiles and there is hope for more events like this in the future.

“I think comedy nights would be a good thing in the future because it would mix up weekend events because most people would not go to a comedy club,” Dillon Terry, senior political science major, said.

With positive feedback from students, more comedy nights are already in demand after the success of Trevor Wallace’s act.
