Hawkeye Spotlight: Neil Campbell and Paul Rust


Paul Rust (left) and Neil Campbell (right) get ready for their show.

In our first installment of “Hawkeye Spotlight”, Isaiah Scales interviewed natives of Fairfax, Virginia and Le Mar, Iowa; Neil and Paul’s comedy paths would meet at The University of Iowa.

NEIL: “We actually met at a show called “No Shame Theatre.”  I was hosting a set and Paul came and did it and he did a bit that I thought was really funny and told him he should keep doing the show.”

PAUL: “I had seen Neil do about a months’ worth of stuff and I thought it was really funny, so to get encouragement from people that I was admiring at the time, encouraged me to keep doing it.”

LA Iowa Club Food Drive – Nov. 17th at Barneys

The Los Angeles Iowa Club is partnering with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank to help provide food for the hungry this Thanksgiving. As you prepare for another Gamewatch against Michigan on Saturday, November 17th, the LA Iowa Club is asking its members to donate at least 1 non-perishable item to the Santa Monica Gamewatch location. We will have a box available to drop off your donation at the Gamewatch site. The LA Iowa Club’s target is to donate 100 pounds of food toward this effort.

We would also like the other Gamewatch locations to get involved if someone at Pasadena, Burbank, or West Hollywood Barney’s would be willing to help out. All we would ask is that a box is available to collect the donations and we can help coordinate to get the food to the LA Regional Food Bank. If you would like to help, please send us an e-mail at no later than November 10th.

Examples of non-perishable items to donate:

Canned Chicken, Powdered Milk, Canned Tuna, Saltine Crackers, Soups, Juices, White Rice, Jarred or Canned Spaghetti Sauce, Grape Jelly, Canned Vegetables, Breakfast Cereals, Pork & Beans, Peanut Butter, Macaroni & Cheese, Pasta, Popcorn, Salt, Sugar, Flour, Ketchup, etc.

**Los Angeles Hawks, let’s do our part and help the LA Regional Food Bank achieve their goal, and see that no one goes hungry in Los Angeles County.
