Chris D’Elia called out everyone, from the “fitspo” community to embarrassing parents, as he entertained a sold-out crowd Saturday night as part of University Union’s Family Weekend.

Remember, you are not the Denzel Washington of your life movie.

Lenoci, who explained his bio as “32. Single. That’s my life,” spent his 30 minutes focused on jokes about relationships. His understanding of relationships: “You’re pretending until you can trick them into falling for you.”

The comedic has-been offended his Fulton bowling alley audience more than he entertained it.

Lakeview Lanes is like any other bowling alley in Central New York. It’s a large facility with more than 20 lanes hosting men’s, women’s and mixed leagues. It’s offset from the road along Route 3 in Fulton, N.Y., just 10 minutes or so past the heart of town.  Lining the top of the building, a giant red sign sits atop an even larger bowling pin. You can’t miss it.
