Blue Pencil Comedy and GG's Bubble Tea will present comedian, writer and activist Lee Camp tonight at The Corridor. The show time is 9 p.m.

Brandon Ivey & J.T. Schindler will host the event, and several local comedians will warm-up the mic for the guest performance.

Camp is a writer for the front page of the Huffington Post and a contributor for the popular news satire publication, The Onion. Recently, he has been performing during the Occupy Wall Street protest in New York City.

“Lee Camp’s humor is very relevant, very topical, and very smart," said Bob Stewart, director of the E.W. Scripps College of Communication. "You don’t just laugh; you think.”

Camp is in Athens as part of the Mel Helitzer Memorial Humor Writing Lecture held Monday at Baker Center Theatre.
