CORTLAND, N.Y. – Comedian Nicole Byer has appeared on popular television shows that include 30 Rock and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. One of her next stops will be SUNY Cortland to deliver a comedy routine Saturday, Sept. 26, during the college’s Homecoming weekend.

Byer’s show takes place at 8 p.m. in Old Main Brown Auditorium, with doors opening at 7:30 p.m. It’s free to attend and sponsored by the SUNY Cortland Student Activities Board.

With more than 225,000 Twitter followers, Byer’s popularity has taken off thanks to her appearances on MTV’s “Girl Code,” a comedy series that features mostly female actresses, musicians and stand-up comics weighing in on topics from a woman’s perspective. Byer also has produced a web series, “Pursuit of Sexiness,” alongside current Saturday Night Live actress Sasheer Zamata.

Girl Code writer and producer Brooke Van Poppelen, who previously appeared on “John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show” and co-authored the Girl Code book, will open the SUNY Cortland show with a discussion about life as a television writer. Audience members also will be able to participate in a question-and-answer session following Byer’s performance.

The show will mark the second SUNY Cortland visit from Girl Code cast members in the past year. In February, comedians Tanisha Long and Esther Ku filled the Corey Union Function Room with a well-received performance.
