YouTube Comedians to Perform at UW
February 28, 2012 — YouTube's popular comedy duo, Barats and Bereta, will perform Wednesday, March 7, at 8 p.m. in the University of Wyoming Union Ballroom. Admission is free.
Best friends since college, Luke Barats and Joe Bereta have turned making silly videos for their family and friends into a full career. They took their love for improvisation and making others laugh to create a YouTube comedy series that has more than 400,000 subscribers.
"As for the live show, you can expect a high-energy comedy sketch. There will be missionaries. There will be puns. Boys will become men. Men will become lumberjacks," Barats says. "Some of the material is adapted from our online shorts, but most of the material is too hilarious to go on the Internet."
The two winners of the UW Stands Up competition will open the performance.
