From skorts and drinking to old-fashioned grandparents, comedian Chloe Hilliard left almost no subject untouched.
The University of South Dakota’s Campus Activities Board hosted the first Dakota Days event Monday at 8 p.m. in Slagel Hall Aalfs auditorium.
Hilliard is originally from Brooklyn, New York. As a journalist-turned-comedian, she now tours the country to make people laugh, often at colleges. She has appeared on “Last Comic Standing” and “Gotham Comedy Live.”
Senior Katie Stanley’s favorite segment was when Hilliard poked fun at girls’ stereotypical partying, like how girls go out in groups of four and only dance so they can burn off the calories of the pancakes they’re going to eat later.
Stanley also liked how lighthearted Hilliard was, she said.
“I thought it was fun she could make fun of herself,” Stanley said.
First-year Richard Culver said he liked the racial humor and the college stories Hilliard told.
“She’s just hysterical. She knows the humor of college students,” Culver said.
