Tickets are $25 for the general public and free for UB undergraduate students. Students can pick up their tickets between Nov. 26 to Nov. 29 with valid UB identification card.
Spears, known for spot-on impersonations of some of the entertainment industry’s finest including Eddie Murphy, LL Cool J, Shaq and Snoop Dog among others. He appeared on 198 episodes of MADtv and now is rocking the stand-up circuit with tv specials and events.
Mitchell is widely known for his time spent on SNL from 2003 to 2006 as a cast member. His most notable reoccurring character on the show was Starkisha, a stereotypically ghetto woman with a bad attitude. Most recently, the comedian was working on the DIsney Channel sitcom, “A.N.T. Farm.”
