'The Office' actor B.J. Novak performs U of M Saturday


B.J. Novak, actor, writer, and producer of the NBC comedy "The Office" will perform live on the University of Minnesota campus Saturday. And you're probably lying if you said you didn't like "The Office," so you have no excuse not to attend.

Unless of course you find Novak's character pretty unfunny, which we do. But if he's helping write the show, he's got to have some funny bones in his body.

Get the details below.

Novak plays Ryan on the show, most known as "the temp" from his first appearances on the show. He's earned a Writer's Guild Award for Best Comedy Series as well as four other WGA nominations and a two Screen Actors Guild Awards for best comedy ensemble cast.

Here are the show details from the U of M:

Saturday at 10 p.m.

The Great Hall of Coffman Memorial Union, 300 Washington Ave. S.E., Minneapolis

Doors open at 9:30 p.m.

Admission is $5 for U of M students and $10 for the general public. Tickets can be purchased online here.
