Odyssey awaits new Troy University Students

TROY – Comedian and Troy University alumnae Lynne Koplitz will take students on an “Odyssey” at 3 p.m. Aug. 21 in Trojan Arena.

Odyssey serves as the official welcoming and convocation for new TROY students, and Koplitz will provide the session’s keynote address.

“Odyssey will communicate to students the significance of their educational pursuits and extend the strong support of the University toward those pursuits,” said Dean of Admissions Buddy Starling. “Lynn Koplitz will demonstrate that a strong education opens doors of opportunities for our graduates.”

Koplitz, who lives in New York City, hosts her own half-hour Comedy Central Presents, and hosts for the syndicated Life & Style with Kimora Lee Simmons. This year she has, for the second time, appeared at the prestigious Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, and has performed at HBO’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival and Live at the Kennedy Center.

She has been the host of the dating show Change of Heart and How to Boil Water on The Food Network. After graduating from TROY, she moved to New York aiming to enter theatre, but turned to stand-up comedy on whim. Her television appearances include NBC’s Later, Comedy Central’s Premium Blend & Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, and the Metro Channel’s New Joke City with Robert Klein.

A reception for parents and students will follow the Odyssey ceremonies.

Comedienne wins laughs

While students migrated across campus in tightly knit packs in order to avoid the arctic temperatures outside, many were content spending Saturday inside doing work or catching up on sleep.



Yet a large cluster of students made its way to Seegers to witness the comedic stylings of Lynne Koplitz, a television personality who has hosted such shows as How to Boil Water on the Food Network. Koplitz's observational style of comedy was a great hit, with some people literally pounding the tables in laughter.



The female comic began by cutting down the student who announced her name, mocking him humorously. After this well-received opening, Koplitz centered the majority of her routine around two students, Bruno Wu '07 and Nick Rogers '07. Koplitz poked fun at Wu's ethnicity and Rogers' appearance, observing that he looked similar to that of "a serial killer." Wu took most of the heat but remained quite good-spirited, even after the performance. "I thought it was great. I love that kind of comedy."



The oddest moment of the evening was when Koplitz caught this author furiously copying down notes to compose this article. She snatched the notepad and began reading aloud the notes that detailed her crude humor. Koplitz finished her routine by speaking on such topics of painkillers, sex and the inadequacy of most men.



Emily Newdorf '07 aptly described the performance. "She was funny some of the time; other times she didn't know what she was talking about... but parts... were funny only to certain people." Though rude and crude, Koplitz's brand of humor proved to be something which all enjoyed.
