Dave Barry – The Observer
The Pulitzer Prize-winning humor writer gave thoughts on comedy and culture on Feb. 7.
Humor writer Dave Barry kept the crowd in stitches during an eventful RCLA Town Hall lecture on Feb. 7.
Dozens of Ringling College Library Association supporters traveled to the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall to see the Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist, who replaced photographer Paul Nicklen as speaker for February’s event.
The event proved full of surprises, though, when a fire alarm was triggered and caused Barry and the entire audience to be evacuated from the Van Wezel. The crowd stood in the chilly weather until officials confirmed it was a false alarm.
