Musical Comedian Evan Wecksell (Epsilon Theta/Tufts) piles on the frequent flyer miles as he once again hits the road with his solo show, Greek Life talk and original, "College The Musical: A Musical About College," a show co-written with wife and comedienne Kelly Meyersfield.

Starting Friday, August 26, Wecksell kicks off his 2011 "Up in the Air" Tour, a (as of press time) fifteen-show jaunt back and forth across the country.

Many of the shows take place in the middle of the country, including two trips to Nebraska, the second of which takes him to University of Nebraska-Omaha on October 24.

Most recognized from such pop culture television shows as VH1's "I Love the 80s 3D" and E!'s "30 Most Outrageous Celebrity Feuds," this summer Evan put down the guitar, and essentially the material, when he performed audience warm-up for tapings of SPEED Channel's "The Car Show" with Adam Carolla.

After spot dates over the last few years, a few runs in North Hollywood and a 2010 sold-out summer weekend in New York City, the two- person musical kicks off the tour with three straight performances.

Stops planned at Theta Chi chapters

Wecksell's tours have expanded in recent years due to his participation in Greek events and his talk "It's Great To Be Greek" which follows some performances. On September 1, he welcomes back Greeks at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Rapid City.

In addition to Greek-wide shows, it is Wecksell's participation with his Theta Chi Fraternity that has been most prolific over the years.

His first Theta Chi event is during recruitment for University of Maryland in College Park. This will be different from his performance last March which was for the Panhellenic Council.

"That show was for an audience of 700 sorority sisters," remembers Wecksell. "They represented about 3000 bottles of shampoo."

The Theta Chi chapter is happy to have him.

"We have heard great things about his past performance at the University of Maryland," explains Theta Chi Rush Chair Jake Wechsler. "It is great to see a fellow brother make it big and we hope he will inspire others to be part of Theta Chi."
