UC Irvine alum Jon Lovitz returns home
Jon Lovitz goes back to his roots Saturday, Sept. 29, by bringing his stand-up routine to his alma mater, UC Irvine, where the Irvine Barclay Theatre is located.
Although this will be his Irvine Barclay debut, the comedian/actor/stand-up comic will recognize the surrounding campus. Or not.
“Boy, the campus sure changed,” said an amazed Lovitz, 61, a UCI alumnus (drama major) who attended 1975-1979. “I don’t really recognize it. The Irvine Barclay wasn’t here when I was here. A lot of it wasn’t here. The campus has grown so much. The buildings seem to swallow up the campus I remember.”
