“Mad TV” star and juggling performers entertain on campus

Comedian Bobby Lee of “Mad TV” and juggling performers Team Rootberry will bring their distinctive brands of humor to Sacramento State for a free outdoor comedy show.

The event, co-sponsored by Sacramento State’s UNIQUE Programs and Multicultural Center, will be held on Thursday, September 14, from 8 to 10 p.m. in the University Union Serna Plaza.

Lee, a stand-up comedian who continues to bring his unique mannerisms and eccentric characters in his fifth season on “Mad TV,” has worked the comedy circuit for more than ten years. Lee began in comedy clubs and eventually gained fame after TV appearances on “Premium Blend” and “The Tonight Show.” He also made a memorable appearance in the 2004 big-screen comedy Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle.

Team Rootberry’s unique act incorporates more than standard bowling pin-juggling. Their performances include sword swallowing while juggling saw blades, a whip-versus-toilet paper contest, and juggling flaming chainsaws. All impart an original comedy element while shattering the perception of what a juggling act is.
