All Campus Entertainment presents renowned comedian Lafayette Wright. Wright is unique in that he is a comedian whose self-obsessions with art and expression fuel who he is both onstage and off. An enigmatic loner offstage, Lafayette has spent close to a decade honing his skill as a favorite on the DC Comedy scene. He now divides his stage time between DC and New York City. Recently he has performed in the illustrious 202 Comedy Festival and will appear on Kevin Hart's new Comedy Central show "Hart of the City", a showcase of different stand-up comedy scenes across the nation.
