About Pow Wow

FSU’s Homecoming Pow Wow, sponsored by the Student Government Association, is an annual evening of entertainment and laughter held on the night before Florida State University’s Homecoming football game. Since the inaugural 1948 pep rally, Pow Wow has evolved into a full night of events. Hosted by the voice of the Seminoles, Mr. Gene Deckerhoff, Pow Wow features performances by the FSU cheerleaders, the Golden Girls, the Flying High Circus, the Marching Chiefs, and various other student organizations.

Comedian Information

John Mulaney

John Mulaney is quickly becoming one of the most sought after young comedians and actors in the comedy world. Mulaney can next be seen starring in FOX’s new comedy Mulaney, about a rising stand-up comic trying to take his career to the next level. He also serves as creator, writer and executive producer on the series.

Mulaney began his career in New York’s East Village as part of the two-man “Oh Hello Show” with comedian Nick Kroll. He has since performed everywhere from Ireland, to Australia to Grand Isle, Nebraska. He was named one of Variety’s “10 Comics to Watch” in 2008--the same year he began working at Saturday Night Live where he appeared as a “Weekend Update” correspondent and co-created characters such as “Stefon” with Bill Hader.

Mulaney’s first comedy special, The Top Part, was released in 2009 and reviewed as "a finely-crafted piece of work" by THE HUFFINGTON POST. He released his second Comedy Central Special and Album New In Town in 2012, and upon review EW.com hailed Mulaney as “one of the best stand-up comics alive.”

Mulaney currently resides in Los Angeles.

Kenan Thompson -- Pow Wow opener

Kenan Thompson is currently in his seventh season on “Saturday Night Live,” and has entertained millions with his impressions of Bill Cosby, Reverend Al Sharpton and Star Jones as well as “DJ Dynasty Handbag,” the scathingly fierce co-host of “Club Traxxx.” This season on “SNL,” Kenan has introduced fresh outrageous characters such as “Grady Wilson” (and his instructional sex videos for the elderly) and “Oscar Rogers” (whose catch-phrase is “Fix It!”).

A native of Atlanta, Thompson made his television debut as a member of the kids sketch-comedy series “All That.” He and his comedy partner, Kel Mitchell, starred on the spin-off “Kenan and Kel” in 1996 and later starred in the hit feature film “Good Burger.” Thompson also had a recurring role on “Felicity.”

Thompson also starred opposite Samuel L. Jackson in the buzzed-about “Snakes on a Plane” and will next be seen in the comedy “Wieners.” Thompson’s feature film credits also include “Fat Albert,” “D2: The Mighty Ducks,” “Rocky & Bullwinkle,” “Heavyweights,” “My Boss’ Daughter” with Ashton Kutcher and “Barbershop 2.” He also has voiced several animated characters in both television and film. Most recently, he is the voice of the Lebron James puppet in the current Lebron/Kobe Nike commercial campaign.

Thompson lives in Los Angeles and New York.
