2018 MOSO Talent Show featuring emcee Troy Walker

Wednesday, 14 March, 2018

The Missouri Southern State University Student Activities Office is thrilled to announce that comedian Troy Walker will be serving as the host for the 2018 MOSO Talent Show. The Talent Show is an annual event sponsored by the MSSU Campus Activities Board.

Comedian Troy Walker began performing stand-up in the Denver comedy scene, where he quickly rose to prominence and was twice named winner of the "New Faces" contest at the famed Comedy Works Comedy Club. Troy now lives in Los Angeles, and made his TV Debut on THE LATE LATE SHOW WITH CRAIG FERGUSON.

Troy has quickly become a comedy festival regular, having performed at The Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival, Austin's Moontower Comedy Festival, Nebraska's Great American Comedy Festival, The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, the Telluride Comedy Festival, and as a "New Face" at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal.

After witnessing his storytelling abilities and commanding presence on stage, it should come as no surprise that he is also a licensed attorney who graduated from the University of Denver's Sturm College of Law.

This event is free and open to theMissouri Southern State Universitycampus community. The first 200 students to present a valid student ID will receive a free t-shirt.
