Hilarious College Student Shoots His Shot By Clowning His School

James Onuigbo is starting his comedy career early.

Published April 8, 2017

College costs a lot of money. And sometimes the only way to cope with the financial burden it puts on students is to joke about it.

  1. That’s what James Onuigbo did. The 21-year-old Bridgewater State University senior decided to poke fun at his school via Twitter. You see, every April his school hosts “Springfest,” which is a weeklong series of events that includes a comedy show.

    Usually, Bridgewater State books a high-profile comic. As a student James thought he could pitch in and save his school some money by proposing to be the comic for this year’s edition.

    “Hey @BridgeStateU don't spend money on a stand up comedian for Springfest this year I'll do it #VerySerious,” he tweeted. They replied minutes later with the tweet, “Okay, tell me a joke,” and sealed their fate. Onuigbo quickly followed up with a reply tweet of, “Financial aid.”

    ZING.

    Classmates and the general public noticed the young man’s clever wit and reacted. “Yoo I'm crying,” someone remarked. “This man is legendary,” another tweeted.
