Cast of “Girl/Guy Code” Kept Students Laughing About Sex, Dating and Foot Doctors

FAU students came out to the Carol and Barry Kaye auditorium to see the anticipated “Girl/Guy Code” comedy show hosted by FAU Program Board on Thursday, Mar. 3 at 8 p.m. where the identities of the performers were revealed.

The event has been in planning since the summer and according to the event coordinator and Chair of Program Board Aheem Edwards, it took about a month and a half to prepare the contracts for the three comedians who performed: Carly Aquilino, Jessimae Peluso and Damien Lemon.

“Compared to our normal and our big events it was a pretty average price,” said Edwards. “We are starting to see what kinds of events people want. This is a free show so I hope everyone enjoys what we offer and become interested in other events.”

The show started about 8:15 p.m. and the first comedian was Carly Aquilino from “Girl Code.” As soon as she came on stage students responded with a roar of claps and whistles. She began by telling us how glad she was to be in Florida.

“I didn’t go to school but if I did I would’ve came here. Actually I wouldn’t have gotten in so I would just hang out here.” said Aquilino.

She was the best comedian of the night with her hilarious jokes about how insecure girls get when they gain weight.

“When we’re insecure and we gained some weight what do we do? I’ll give you a hint it starts with a D,”  Aquilino asked the crowd.

“Drink!” yelled some students near the front.

She then answered “No you alcoholics, you date a black guy.”

Kerdija Henry, a senior anthropology major said “The red hair girl, I didn’t get her name, she was the funniest!”

Jessimae Peluso, also from “Girl Code” was second to hit the stage dancing to Chris Brown’s “Turn Up the Music.” In her introductory joke she commented on the amount of grass in Florida.

“You guys have a lot of grass out here, a lot a grass. I wanna get some!” she said, “I wanna roll in it.”

Peluso also joked about not going to school.

 “I don’t have enough focus to go to college, I mean, what would I get a degree in animal massage? Is that even a thing?”

She also told a story about attending the MTV Video Music Awards and how our culture is obsessed with sex and Miley Cyrus. She joked about meeting Will Smith and being so nervous her “lady biscuit” radiated heat and she looked like a crazed fan.

“I put my hand over my heat biscuit, I didn’t want Will Smith walking through that,”  Peluso said.

The best part of her act was when she said centimeter wrong and a few students near the front corrected her.

“What, I said it wrong?” she said. “What, you guys are in college? A room full of Bill Nyes.”

Her act ended with some advice to the guys in the audience. She wanted them to learn to give ladies some slack if they look messy sometimes.

“As women theres so much maintenance, we’re like a broken down car that you have to fix up every day,” said  Peluso.

The last performer was Damien Lemon from “Guy Code.” He made all the guys cheer when he took the stage and announced it was “Guy Code” time. He started the show telling us about a recent trip to the podiatrist after discovering he doesn’t have arches in his feet.

“I don’t like saying that I have no arch, I say I’m flat-footed; it sounds like I’m saying I wanna be all the way embedded in these streets,” said Lemon.

He claimed he got the best foot massage at his doctors visit.

“He put this warm gel on my feet cause he said he needed to sonogram my feet, I told him they weren’t pregnant cause I always wear socks,” he said. “While putting on the gel though he stared right into my eyes like he was trying to reach my soul, I’m not gay but it felt nice.”

Lemon also joked about guys, porn and marsturbation.

“Your roommate’s class schedule is your masturbating schedule,” said  Lemon. “You be impatient like, ‘I thought you had psychology right now.’”

The best part of his act was when he asked whether the FAU dorms were co-ed or not. The audience yelled out to confirm that they were and he got very excited, asking about our pregnancy rate prompting students to yell out numbers.

“Oh y’all seriously know it! You guys are all like, ‘I ain’t ending up like that.’ When I went to college we didn’t have co-ed dorms,’ said Lemon. “We had visitation hours on the weekend; conjugal visits like if it was jail.”

After a long day in classes, the MTV cast made it therapeutic to laugh along with the rest of the student body.

“I thought the show was funny though it wasn’t the usual comedy I go for,” said Candice Sanzari, a junior English major. “I don’t usually attend FAU events but after this show I just might.”

FAU’s Program Board host a variety of events — some free — for FAU students. Their next event is Stroll-Off: a stepshow that will be held on Friday, April 11 at 9 p.m. in the Recreation Center.
