Comedienne to Highlight ASU Club Caf�

Angelo State University’39;s Club Caf� coffee house entertainment series will showcase the hilarious talents of young comedienne Retta Wednesday, Feb. 27, in the ASU Houston Harte University Center.

Retta will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 27 in the University Center’s C.J. Davidson Conference Center. Admission price is $1 and all those who attend will receive a free Club Caf� coffee mug. Coffee, cappuccino, hot chocolate and light refreshments will be served.

A native of Newark, N.J., Retta graduated from Duke University and tried her hand at pharmaceutical research before moving to Los Angeles to become a comedienne. Over the past five years she has performed in all 50 states entertaining audiences with her stories about family, friends and those not-so-happy people working at popular fast-food chains.

Retta’s comedic stylings have also been displayed on her TV special "Comedy Central Presents: Retta" and "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno." She has also appeared in the movies "Slackers" and "Dickie Roberts – Former Child Star."

Samples of Retta’s comedy routine are available online at www.joeyedmonds.com/artist_detail.php?artist_ID=25 and www.myspace.com/rettasgotjokes.
