Emporia State University is excited to announce its newest Friday Nights big event! Join us for “A Night with Josh Peck” at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 8 at in Albert Taylor Hall in Plumb Hall on the ESU campus.

Peck, an actor, author and social media sensation, was born to entertain, hitting the stand-up comedy circuit at just 8 years old. The former teen star is best known for his role on the Nickelodeon series, “Drake & Josh,” and for starring in the 2012 movie “Red Dawn.”

He was most recently seen in Christopher Nolan’s new movie, “Oppenheimer,” establishing himself as one of Hollywood’s rising talents, making the seamless transition from child actor to leading man. He is also known for his social media accounts with 2.6 million followers on Twitter and 12.8 million followers on Instagram.

Peck will deliver candid and funny insight into “making it” as a child star and beyond, reflecting on the stumbles and silver linings of his life — including early struggles with food, drugs, self-esteem and self-sabotage — tracing a zigzagging path to redemption.

“A Night with Josh Peck” is a moderated question-and-answer event, which will include time for questions from the audience. The event is free to the public.
