Poet tickles, inspires crowd

Frontier Fiesta always has a lot to offer students and on Thursday, with the help of the Mexican American Studies Student Organization, a Hispanic-Polish American self-named “Pocho Joe” took to the stage to tickle funny bones.

Poet and comedian Joe Hernandez-Kolski, who has been featured on HBO’s Def Poetry Jam, performed a good show that featured a lot of Hispanic heritage-based bits.

Hernandez, it seemed, designed his show in order to make you laugh and give a more in-depth thought to college life and the future.

Along with humor, there was a serious side to his show, which provided some reflection not usually seen in comedy. Hernandez, aside from his comedic duties, is also a motivational speaker who visits universities and high schools across the country.

The parts of his show that involved the audience were well-done and well-received by all, which entertained and made for a decent laugh.

Overall, his witty remarks regarding the Hispanic heritage as well as standard observational humor made for a fun hour.
