SPECIAL EVENT | RIT FreezeFest feat. John Oliver 

British satirist and contributor to "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" John Oliver will be performing stand-up comedy at this year's FreezeFest at RIT. Oliver has been nominated for both Emmy and Writers Guild awards over the years and has a recurring role on the NBC sitcom, "Community." He has also been quoted as saying he hopes to stay at "The Daily Show" for as long as the show and U.S. immigration will allow. Opening for Oliver will be Brooks Wheelan, a cast member of "Saturday Night Live."

Both will be performing Saturday, February 22, 8 p.m. at Gordon Field House at RIT, 1 Lomb Memorial Drive. Tickets are $35 for the general public, $15 for RIT students, and can be purchased online, by calling 475-4121, or visiting the Gordon Field House Box Office.

Other events scheduled during FreezeFest include ice sculptures, a dance party, a sausage and sauerkraut fest, a bake-off, a 5K race, and lots of other activities. Events take place Friday-Sunday, February 21-23, at various times. For more information, and a complete list of events, visit
