University Union keeps surprise events coming

The student organization made another 10 p.m. announcement via Twitter, adding Vanessa Bayer and Kate McKinnon of 'Saturday Night Live' to their already impressive lineup of fall events.

University Union isn't all about the music.

At 10 p.m., the student group made an annoucement via Twitter saying two female comedians of Saturday Night Live fame will be at SU in October.

"LIVE FROM NEW YORK (Syracuse, NY...) IT'S THE #GIRLSOFSNL! Join Vanessa Bayer & Kate McKinnon on 10.16 for non-stop laughs in Goldtein Aud." Comedy Central's Nick Vatterott will open the show, which starts at 8 p.m. Doors will open at 7:30 p.m.

University Union has already gone above and beyond the call of duty by organizing the first Juice Jam Festival on Sept. 8, bringing alt-hip-hop duo Twenty One Pilots to Goldstein in October and, of course, getting Macklemore and Ryan Lewis to perform in the Carrier Dome in November.

Bayer joined the cast of SNL in 2010 and is best known for her impressions of Kourtney Kardashian and Miley Cyrus, hence UU's Twitter tease: "We couldn't get Miley to swing through 'Cuse on a wrecking ball, but we did get the next best thing..."




McKinnon joined the cast of SNL in 2012 and is best known for her impressions of Ellen Degeneres and Ann Romney.

Tickets to see Bayer and McKinnon are $5, and they go on sale at 9 a.m. tomorrow at the Schine Box Office.
