Comic to read minds at Penn State Fayette

Eric Dittelman
8/29/2014 —

Eric Dittelman will bring his unique show that features mind-reading and comedy to Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus, Sept. 23 at 7 p.m.

Often known just as Dittelman, the performer grew up in Westboro, Mass., where he formed an interest in improvisation and comedy. In college, he took part in shows with improv and sketch comedy troupes. After graduating, he began to combine his comedic skills and passion for mystery performance into one-man shows.

Dittelman later became a semi-finalist on season seven of NBC's "America's Got Talent." In his audition for that program, he correctly identified images drawn by judges Sharon Osbourne, Howard Stern, and Howie Mandel—with a blindfold covering his eyes.

The mind-reading comic has also appeared as a guest on "The Ellen Degeneres Show," and was featured in Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone. He has studied improv comedy with Upright Citizens Brigade, Improv Boston, and Second City, and was nominated "Fastest Rising Star" by Campus Activities Magazine.

Dittelman’s performance at Penn State Fayette will take place Sept. 23 at 7 p.m. in Swimmer Hall, which is located in the Williams Building. His show is free of charge and open to the public.
