This college dropout is coming back to school.

Jimmy Tatro, a YouTube comedian-turned-celebrity, is set to perform his stand-up comedy set “Memoirs of a College Dropout” on Friday in the Brown-Lupton University Union Ballroom.

Tatro’s routine focuses on his collegiate experiences including parties and encounters with the police.

Tatro attended the University of Arizona and was a member of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity. He dropped out his junior year and started a YouTube channel with his friend and creative partner Christian Pierce.

As of February 2016, LifeAccordingToJimmy (LATJ) has nearly 2.5 million subscribers.

LATJ features raunchy subjects like drug-use and sexual promiscuity. Select videos require age verification to view.

The channel is listed at number 92 on New Media Rockstars Top 100 YouTube Channels. Its celebrity guest list includes Emily Osment, Riff Raff, Liliana Mumy and Angela Kinsey.

Tatro has appeared in movies such as “Grown Ups 2″ and “22 Jump Street,” in which he co-starred opposite Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. He was also in “Blue Mountain State: The Rise of Thadland,” a spin-off of the show “Blue Mountain State.”

Tatro is starring alongside Gary Busey in the upcoming film “Camp Manna.”  The film is centered around Tatro’s character, a counselor at a Christian summer camp, as he does whatever it takes to help his cabin win the camp games.

Tatro joins TCU’s growing list of celebrity guests, including Rainn Wilson and Demetri Martin, brought to campus by theEnd.

TheEnd brings in celebrities and hosts on-campus movie screenings to provide students safe on-campus weekend activities and detract from off-campus partying.

Students can register to attend Tatro’s performance on Eventbrite. Students are required to bring their ticket and student ID to get into the event. Students can reserve an additional ticket to bring one non-TCU student guest.

The event will be in the Brown-Lupton University Union Ballroom on Friday. Doors open at 9:30 p.m.
