Aydrea Walden: ‘The Oreo Experience’

December 9 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

| Free

The Rising Tide Center, in collaboration with the Honors College, the Bailey Fund and the McGillicuddy Humanities Center, presents stand-up comedienne Aydrea Walden performing “a musical one-woman show about a total whitey trapped in a black chick’s body.”

The event is free and open to the public.

Walden is the creator and star of the Webby-nominated web series “Black Girl in a Big Dress,” a period drama-themed comedy that follows the adventures of an awkward, African American Anglophile cosplayer in love with the Victorian Era who’s trying to navigate 21st-century dating with 19th-century ideals. She also is a multiple Moth StorySLAM winner and former newspaper reporter, has written for Nickelodeon, Highlander Films, the Now Write! Screenwriting book series, Maker Studios, Disney and Amazon, and currently works as a development executive for DreamWorksTV at NBCUniversal.
