Student Entertainment Events announced Thursday afternoon that comedian and actress Jessica Williams will be speaking on campus next month at their annual fall lecture event October 13.

The former Daily Show senior correspondent will hold her lecture in the Stamp Student Union's Colony Ballroom at 7 p.m. Doors will open at 6:30 and no tickets are required. The event will be free and open to the public.

The booking of Williams follows a comedy trend at this event for SEE as last year's lecture was headlined by writers from the satirical publication The Onion.
