“Girl Code” starlettes are coming to Binghamton University.
The Student Association Programming Board announced on Monday that actress-comedians Nicole Byer and Carly Aquilino will be performing in Lecture Hall 1 on April 13. The two rose to stardom on MTV’s “Girl Code,” which aired between 2013 and 2015.
Since then, Byer has landed her own show “Loosely Exactly Nicole,” which ran on MTV for one season before being picked up for a second season by Facebook. She also made an appearance in the 2016 film “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.”
Aquilino went on to host “Girl Code Live,” and now appears on “SafeWord,” a game show that pairs celebrities with comedians to push their opponent out of their comfort zone.
According to Libby Aliberti, the Student Association vice president for programming and a senior majoring in biology, Byer and Aquilino were on the spring 2018 programming survey and were chosen as the seventh and sixth most popular, respectively, in a field of 15 comedians.
“They are known by many from their time on MTV’s Girl Code and are sure to bring a night of sarcasm and realness that will be a great way to welcome everyone back after Spring Break,” Aliberti wrote in an email. “I hope that students come out with their friends and enjoy the show while de-stressing before the final rush of the end of the spring semester”
The free show will take place at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 13, in Lecture Hall 1.
