This past weekend, Feb. 15-16, Grace College hosted the Presidential Scholarship Competition. An essential part of this jam-packed weekend is Late Night, which took over the MOCC Friday, Feb. 16. Late Night, which has been hosted by Michael Hsu the last two years, gives PSC attendees a chance to really experience Grace’s community. Due to Hsu’s graduation, Late Night needed a new host. Sophomore Ethan Roberts decided to take on the challenge.
After attending Late Night last year, Roberts thought it would be a “tremendously fun event to try and make awesome.” He admired Michael Hsu’s ability to engage the crowd and aimed to create a similar event that would hopefully come close to being as fun as the one he had experienced.
After some pre-show nerves, Ethan Roberts took the stage and immediately owned his performance.
“Obviously, anything with this much prep is a whole boatload of stress in the lead-up to it,” said Roberts, “but being able to write my own material and see people laugh at the things I made was an incredible feeling that was worth every second of the process.” From charade competitions to lip sync battles, Late Night was an awesome kick-start to PSC and lived up to the precedent set by Hsu.
