Miller will serve as comedian for Homecoming Week’s first evening event: the comedy show on Feb. 17. The show begins at 7 p.m. in the Maxwell Theatre, and is free for Augusta University and East Georgia State College students. All other guests, including AU and EGSC faculty and staff, may purchase tickets at the door for $5 each.

Miller is best known for his work with MTV, but he’s also appeared on Last Comic Standing, Uncommon Sense, ComicView, and Who’s Got Jokes. He also hosts the “85 South Show” podcast with DC Young Fly, and has guest starred on the sitcom Family Time.

His other comedy work includes appearances in the stand-up series All Def Comedy, as well as a half-hour special on Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud network.

Darren Brand will host the Jaguar Mania Step & Dance Show on Feb. 21 at Christenberry Fieldhouse. The show begins at 7 p.m., and serves as the last entertainment event of homecoming week. This event features performances from Greek life and other student organizations.

Brand is a native of Southern Pines, North Carolina, and a lot of his comedy reflects the college experience, thanks to his time at North Carolina A&T State University. In addition to Wild ‘N Out and Joking Off, Brand has filmed a comedy special as well as hosted the BET Nomination Special.
