Life in college can be new, awkward but is often entertaining.

Chuckles were heard Saturday in Chinatown as local and New York-based comedians from BroBible’s Post-College Confusion Tour took the stage at the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue to poke fun at the humor-tinged challenges of post-collegiate life in the city.

“Okay, so you guys are still trying to get your drinking under control, right?” comedian Carson Gross quipped, trying to relate to the young adult audience as he began the show.

The tour, hosted by Gross, covered all the familiar aspects of soon-to-be adult life, such as giving blood, going off parents’ cell phone plan and, of course, finding a job.

“I actually had an interview at the Red Lobster,” joked comedian Michael Quinn, a Georgetown graduate. “They asked me where I saw myself in 10 years.”

Other comics included Jared Logan, Michael Che, Jared Freid, Kate Hendricks, Anthony P. DeVito, Greg Stone and Jordan Carlos.

Quoting popular Bar Mitzvah and graduation songs, Carlos excitedly shared with the audience his favorite playlist on Pandora – “This is How We Do It” by Montell Jordan, claiming “If you don’t know it you’re probably dead inside.”

The Post-College Confusion Tour is sponsored by BroBible.com, where participating comedian Jared Freid is a writer. BroBible is a website dedicated to “the glory of being a Bro” in their own virtual “Brommunity,” according to the website.

BroBible acknowledged, however, that post-college confusion is not exclusive to men, welcoming comedian Hendricks, who recently performed at the Laughing Skulls Festival in Atlanta.

“My mom recently told me I have an unkind resting face,” joked Hendricks, before going on to describe her recent romantic encounters in provocative detail.
