LOS ANGELES–The UCLA Armenian Student Association (ASA) continues its tradition of Open Mic Night by hosting an Armenian cultural comedy night with famous Armenian artist and comedian Vahe Berberian. The event’s purpose is to entertain–as well as educate Armenian students and ASA members about Armenian culture and assimilation in the diaspora.
"The UCLA ASA is honored to have Vahe Berberian express his creativity on stage with our members. Comedy is a unique medium through which one’s culture can be expressed with a humorous slant," proclaimed ASA cultural director Lucy Tagessian.
The event will be held on Wednesday–Feb. 23–on UCLA’s campus at 7:30 pm in the Cooperage (inside the Ackerman Union Building). The event is free and open to the general public.

The UCLA ASA is one of the oldest Armenian-American student groups in the United States. This year marks the 60th anniversary of its existence. The UCLA ASA seeks to cultivate a true understanding and appreciation of Armenian history–heritage–and culture through cultural–social–and recreational activities.
