Tomorrow: Comedy Hour with Steve Rannazzisi


Here at 4E, the midweek crunch has usually got us feeling a certain way.  You know, completely over the whole school thing and ready for the weekend?  Kind of like this:

However, this particular Wednesday we’re feeling a bit more upbeat.  What’s got us feeling this way, you may ask?  Well, Steve Rannazzisi, better known as “Kevin” from FXX’s hit show, The League, is coming to perform at Georgetown tomorrow night!  Doors open at 6:30pm in Sellinger Lounge, and the show is scheduled to start at 7pm and last until 8pm.  The best part?  Admissions is free!  Your GoCard is the only ticket you’ll need for this hysterical hour.

For those of you who haven’t jumped on the bandwagon and Netflix binged on The League yet, you’re clearly missing out.  The show revolves around a group of six friends who participate in a fantasy football league and reside in Chicago.  The debauchery they partake in is seriously second to none, as they are all willing to go to extreme measures to win their league.  The show is also predominantly improvised, further proving the hilarity of the motley cast.

While many tune in to watch Steve handle the trials and tribulations of dealing with the antics of his buddies (here’s to you Taco and Rafi), few fans realize how or why he got his start in the business.  In recent interviews, Steve has revealed how working in the World Trade Center during the 9/11 attacks made him seriously reconsider his career decision.

Shortly after the attacks, he and his girlfriend packed up and headed to Los Angeles so he could pursue his dream of being a stand up comic.  After working in stand up for several years, Steve was discovered by Ashton Kutcher and given the opportunity to work on the show Punk’d.  Finally, in 2009, he signed on to star in The League and we’ve been laughing ever since.

Studying for your midterms can be put off but laughing with Steve Rannazzisi cannot.  So, will you be in attendance?

Long story short; grab your GoCard, head to Sellinger at 6:30pm tomorrow and get ready to fall out of your seat laughing.  You know you’ll see us there!

4E Flix: The League and MK & A

Screen Shot 2013-01-14 at 9.08.23 PM

Add/Drop is over, you’re stuck in your classes, and it’s now that time to catch up on the reading that you ignored for the past two weeks. On that note, here are some TV shows and movies on Netflix that will facilitate your inevitable procrastination. We’re just looking out for you here at the Fourth Edition.

The League


This is on my personal list of shows to start watching. It seemed like a big hit over winter break, but in case you also missed it, Netflix has four seasons ready to watch on Instant! The League is a sitcom on FX that follows the lives of six members of a fantasy football league through their inappropriate and hilarious shenanigans. As a die-hard New York sports fan I’d be kicked out of my family for saying this, but RGIII makes a special appearance in one of the episodes and, as a closeted fan of his, I’m eager to watch that episode. Plus Nick Kroll (Ruxin) is a fellow Hoya, so there’s love there.

MK & A


If you or your family gets Netflix DVDs delivered to your house (not on Netflix Instant), I have some of the best news in the world: Netflix now has all the old MK & A videos — Getting There, Billboard Dad, It Takes Two – the list goes on and I am just too excited about it. They’re all on there. So is “Full House.” The look of my queue just changed with the addition of fourteen Mary Kate and Ashley movies. They’re sandwiched in between A Beautiful Mind and Finding Nemo.
