ASUCI Speakers & Debate is excited to invite you to our upcoming Kal Penn Spaker Event on March 5th @7pm at the Pacific Ballrooms.

Most known for his portrayal of Kumar Patel in the cult film franchise HAROLD & KUMAR, Kal Penn’s resume is rich with feature and television credits including House M.D., 24, and his critically acclaimed performance in Mira Nair’s The Namesake for Fox Searchlight. Recently, Kal decided to take a break from his career in entertainment to work as an Associate Director at The White House Office of Public Engagement. While in that role, Kal focused on a number of initiatives including “don’t ask, don’t tell,” increasing financial aid, and bringing Americans back from Iraq. Kal also was a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, teaching courses on Asian-Americans in pop culture and on the history of teen movies.

Don’t forget to get your tickets NOW with your student ID at the Student Government & Student Media (ASUCI) office; tickets are on sale for $5 for all undergraduate and graduate students and $10 for UCI Affiliates. 7 lucky students will also be drawn for an opportunity to meet & greet Kal Penn after the event!
