FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Two-time Emmy Award winner Tony Hale will speak at the University of Arkansas at 7 p.m. Monday, Jan. 29, in the Faulkner Performing Arts Center, as part of the student-sponsored Distinguished Lecture Series. The event is co-sponsored by the U of A Department of Communication.

The event is free and the public is invited but tickets are required. Tickets will be available at the door beginning at 5:30 p.m, on a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be reserved in advance. Seating is limited and only 587 tickets will be available.

Hale won his Emmys for his performance as “Gary” on the HBO series VEEP. The comic actor first came to national fame playing “Buster” on the cult favorite series Arrested Development.

Hale will take part in a moderated interview conducted by his old friend and colleague Russell Sharman, a lecturer in the U of A Department of Communications. Hale will also take questions from the audience.

“We are very excited to be able to bring an actor of Tony Hale’s stature to campus,” said J.P. Gairhan, chair of the student Distinguished Lecture committee. “We are very greatful to Russell Sharman for bringing this opportunity to our attention, and to agreeing to be a part of the program. We think the campus community – and the Fayetteville community as well – will really enjoy this appearance.”
