luby kiriakidi ('18)

Luby is a junior majoring in Classics and the College Scholar Program from Rochester, NY. She graduated from the same high school as Kristen Wiig, and grew up in the same states as Kristen Wiig (upstate NY, northeast PA). Sadly, she is not Kristen Wiig, though she may tell you otherwise. Luby likes feathered beings, sharp objects, and waking up at 6am. Her dream is to be an old lady shouting profanities and flashing neighborhood kids from her porch. Thankfully, only fleeting youth stand in her way. 

JAcob Freedland ('19)

Jacob is a sophomore majoring in Applied Economics and Management. Kid's from Edgemont, NY. Honestly, Jacob kills it. Likes to savage out on stage and adapt sarcastic tongue in cheek tones to make jokes about perception and expectations, nothing better than that, right? Does a bunch of chill stuff like get involved with Cornell Concert Commission and play the guitar, I heard he doesn’t whip the acoustic out at parties though, kid knows what’s up.

julia shebek ('19)

Julia is a sophomore from California who spends 100% of her college time filling the void left by In-N-Out with Cornell ice cream. She wishes that she knew how to do mature things like yoga and veganism and walking without falling, but Julia has instead learned to enjoy her simple life of eating pork chops while motionless on the floor. She is double-majoring in English and PMA in the hopes of acquiring some talent and no marketable job skills. In the future, Julia plans to use this bio as a letter of recommendation for her job application to Arby's.

CAM HASS ('18) 

Honestly, Cam just thinks that Humor Us! should count their #blessings because him joining this group is a huge act of charity and should probably be 501(c)3 deductible. In his spare time he spends time honing his natural tan, sings In The Arms of the Angels (yes, he's better than Sarah), eats sunshine, and poops rainbows. He is looking for a semi consistent hookup buddy but you have to be at least a Cornell 8 because let's be honest, he's totally an 8.5.

 

 

James Kaye ('18)

"Forged in the heart of a dying star, its power has no equal. It can be used as a weapon, to destroy, or as a tool, to build. Tis a fit companion for a king." - Odin, All Father, of James "Edible Bicepses" Kaye.

 

 

 

GRACIE LYMAN ('18)

Gracie self-identifies as white trash. Her preferred pronouns are b*ch, c*nt, and sugar t*ts, and as the name suggests, she’s got a sweet rack. If she’s not distracting her “smart” friends in Mann because she’s a “communication major”, you can find her pouring shots for the guys she used to sleep with and their girlfriends at Level B. She also makes the Humor Us posters and is really bad at running the group’s social media sites.

 

ALEX FOMENKOV ('19) 

Alex is the only noteworthy California member of Humor Us! He wears sunglasses, when it's night time, but in Europe. He is enrolled in Cornell's School of Hotel Administration and refuses to accept that it is a part of the "College of Business," though he does hope that the College of Business Branding Initiative will land him some cool free stuff. Alex enjoys long walks on the beach, wearing flip flops, saying "hella," talking about the interstate freeway system, and pretty much everything else he can't have/do when he's at Cornell. He swears he's not bitter about it but we have our doubts.

drew adler ('17)

Drew likes sports and he don't care who knows. Yea that's right I don't care. I don't care so stop asking. Really this is getting annoying please end this inquisition. I am begging you pleaseeee. All right fuck it I'm an average stature, brown haired Jewish boy but I can still dream of the big leagues right? RIGHT? I'm sure you have dreams too and just cuz I'm sharing mine doesn't mean you can judge me. How about you what are your dreams huh?.....silent thaats what I thought. Looks like this guys just got a bit more courage. That will do me well when I make it big.

 

David Gelikman ('20)

David is a freshman Biology major from South Florida. He's currently a pre-med until he takes orgo next year. You can usually catch him just listening to some chill tunes on his Walkman or hanging out on his Myspace page. If you don't see David playing his guitar in the middle of a field it's because he's probably browsing some dank memes on his iPhone 3GS. It's lit fam. Please follow my SoundCloud.

 

 

CaMeron Fuhr ('18)

Cameron is a junior double major in Biology and Communications. Yes, he realizes it's a strange combo. He's tired of jokes like, "so you plan on talking to animals?" Much like 60% of you reading this, he's from Westchester, NY. He enjoys baseball, rock 'n' roll, and annihilating his moron brother at Othello, the ancient game of strategy.

 

 

ZaK Bennedeck ('19)

The resident godking of memery at humor us, Zak has a background in improv. He enjoys reading comic books, watching Nets basketball, skiing, and watching funny vids on the You Tube. He also chose this picture because it accentuates his beard as much as possible, and hates his baby face.

 

Izzy digiacomo ('20)

Izzy is a freshman from NYC who wishes she could earn a spot in the Bad Girls Club™, but instead studies engineering at Cornell University. She fills the void by being in Humor Us and trying to build her comedy knowledge, but deep down inside nothing will be as funny to her as compilation videos of people falling off of motorcycles. 

 

senna phillips ('20)

Senna is a city and regional planning major. No, that's not in human ecology; it's in the architecture school. No, she is not an architect; she doesn't know your architect friend. She helps plan how land is used. You're giving her a weird look and she's talking a lot about urban sprawl and you're not sure why she cares about this at all, but don't worry she'll ask you what your major is so this doesn't get even more awkward. When she isn't busy doing that thing you don't understand, you can find her yelling. That's all.
