On a typical Saturday night, Finesse Mitchell would be impersonating celebrities such as Andre 3000 of Outkast, Bobby Brown or Venus Williams.
Instead of his usual shenanigans, the featured player of NBC’s Saturday Night Live will perform his comedy routine for USF this Saturday.
Mitchell was originally scheduled to perform at USF in September, but had to cancel after he was picked up by SNL. No hard feelings.
The University of Miami graduate began his comedy career by performing on stand-up comedy tours at colleges nationwide.
He later began performing at the Miami Improv, Hollywood Improv in Los Angeles and regularly appeared on BET’s Comic View.
Mitchell, who is from Atlanta (hence the Outkast impressions), also appeared on Late Friday, The Punchline and Chris Tucker’s Comedy Cafe.
And to make up for his becoming famous on the night he was to play USF, he’ll be telling jokes-and-jokes-and-jokes for free (well, maybe that’s not exactly the reason).
That’s so nice; give the man a good audience.
Finesse Mitchell will perform Saturday at USF’s Special Events Center. The free show starts at 8 p.m.

Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
Student Government (SG) launched the first-of-its-kind, merit-based scholarship to students Nov. 5 on USF’s Tampa campus.

A plan drafted on a bar napkin two years ago has now become the USF Jabil Innovation Institute, a multi-million dollar institute combining the College of Engineering and the Muma College of Business.
