Kinesiology alumnus, Cy Amundson '08, to appear on Conan this Tuesday

cy.pngWho says a degree in Recreation, Park, and Leisure Studies won't bring you fame and fortune? He's still working on the fortune part, but Cy Amundson, who received his B.S. in RPLS in 2008, is officially famous. Mr. Amundson will appear on Conan, the late-night talk show hosted by comedian Conan O'Brien, on Tuesday, April 3, on TBS at 10 p.m. While Amundson studied at the U of MN, he has been pursuing a career as a comedian for many years. He was a standout performer as a New Face at this year's Montreal Just For Laughs Festival and was named CMT's Next Big Comic in 2011.
