Monday August 29, 2011Gator Growl 2011 Brings E! The Soup's Host Joel McHale

Gainesville, Fla.

Stand-up comedian, actor and host of The Soup on the E! television network, Joel McHale, will be joining the Goo Goo Dolls at Gator Growl 2011.

McHale will be doing stand up comedy, prior to the headling act, The Goo Goo Dolls. Gator Growl has always had comedic acts in past years including Aziz Ansari and Kevin Hart in 2010 and Dana Carvey in 2009.

“A comedian is a great addition to mix up the entertainment during the show,” said the 2011 Gator Growl Producer, Aaron Heger. “Comedians have always worked out well in past shows, so we tried our hardest to find a popular, current comedian for this year’s show.”

In addition to McHale and the Goo Goo Dolls, Gator Growl will also be bringing back a fireworks show and changing the placement of the stage for better viewing purposes.

Tickets can be purchased at and at the University Box Office.

Gator Growl 2011 will be held on Friday, Nov. 4, 2011 at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. This year’s event will mark Gator Growl’s 88th show since its origination in 1923.
