Kevin Malast Comedy Benefit Featuring Julian McCullough
On Tuesday, June 26th, former Rutgers standout and current Tennessee Titans linebacker, Kevin Malast is hosting a comedy benefit headlined by comedian Julian McCullough at the Stress Factory in New Brunswick, NJ. This charity event is benefiting the Spinal Cord Injury Project at Rutgers.
This is a return to New Brunswick for both Malast and McCullough who are both Rutgers alumni. There will be plenty of Scarlet Knights in attendance that night as many of Kevin’s former Rutgers teammates, who are currently in the NFL, will be there as well.
McCullough has performed on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, NPR’s This American Life, and starred in his own half hour special on Comedy Central. You can catch him every Saturday as host of TBS’ “Very Funny News” and on MTV2′s hit series Guy Code. He has contributed to countless pop culture talking head shows and has hosted three stand alone specials for VH1.
The Spinal Cord Injury Project is the first focus of the W. M. Keck Center for Collaborative Neuroscience. Its mission is to conduct cutting-edge research and to build collaborations to focus resources on finding a cure for spinal cord injuries.
The Spinal Cord Injury Project at Rutgers is particularly close to Kevin Malast’s heart, as his brother Brian, a New Jersey State Trooper, suffered a spinal cord injury as the result of an on duty car accident.

The Spinal Cord Injury Project works to bring together research facilities, educational institutions, training programs, government officials, and corporate entities to work together to develop new therapies and to move the most effective treatments quickly to clinical trial.
A critical force in accelerating the pace of research is the involvement of those who are spinal cord injured and their families. The Spinal Cord Injury Project provides many programs and services for this community to keep them informed on issues of health, the latest in spinal cord injury research, and in ways that they can work to move the field forward.
