NKU National Hispanic Heritage Month

Posted by admin on 2014/9/11 16:30:00 (934 reads)

The Office of Latino Programs and Services celebrates National Hispanic Heritage Month each fall with several activities on campus.

The 2014 keynote speaker is Gilbert Esquivel. Gilbert is a unique voice in stand-up comedy, able to entertain an audience of inner-city youth to a room of senior citizens without missing a beat. His ability to ad-lib has made him a favorite of many television producers to warm-up studio audiences for such shows as American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, and Star Search and many more. Gilbert started is career at The Ice House Comedy Club. He's also appeared on BET's Comicview, Laffapalooza, and Que Locos. Gilbert won the first Latino comedy search just two years into his comedy and went to perform on such stages as the Apollo Theatre to Ceasers Palace Las Vegas. He has also performed in many churches, prisons, and universities throughout the country, sharing his experiences of growing up all over the United States as a Migrant worker. Please join on October 2, from 8:00-9:00 p.m. in the James C. and Rachel M. Votruba Student Union Multi-Purpose Room 102.
