Comedian/author will visit KSU Bookstore


Comedian Mike Polk Jr., author of "Damn Right I'm from Cleveland," will visit the Kent State University Bookstore in the Kent Student Center from noon to 2 p.m. Thursday to greet fans and autograph copies of his book. The event is free and open to the public.

Polk's book is a rustbelt satire lampooning Cleveland's quirks, including the city's boundless obsession with disappointing sports teams, its nonstop quest to reinvent its civic image, and a grab-bag collection of odd local celebrities.

Mike Polk Jr. is a Cleveland-based writer and comedian. He graduated from KSU in 2002 with a degree in communications and wrote for the Daily Kent Stater.
