Rob Corddry, a fan favorite among correspondents for Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and lead actor in the comedy film Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story, will give the 2005 Senior Class Lecture 7 p.m. Sunday in Colton Chapel.

The talk is free and open to the public.

Corddry made his feature film debut in the Dreamworks movie Old School. He has appeared in television commercials for The Cartoon Network, Labatts Beer, Wendy’s, and 1-800-Call-ATT, among others, and can be heard in numerous national radio ads. He takes pride in being pictured in Entertainment Weekly’s “Worst of…” issue alongside Carrot Top for “The Worst Commercial of 2001.”

Corddry has spent the last ten years in New York City treading the line between theater and comedy. He performs and teaches comedy improvisation at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theater in New York City. In 1997, following a two-year stint with New York sketch comedy staple Third Rail Comedy, Corddry founded Naked Babies, an acclaimed four-man sketch group. He frequently appeared on Comedy Central’s Upright Citizens Brigade and as a regular performer on NBC’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien.

Originally from the Boston area, Corddry graduated from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
