Gator Growl staff announced Sunday that Joel McHale will perform on Nov. 4 as the comedian for Gator Growl 2011.

 McHale hosts "The Soup" on E! News and appears as Jeff Winger on NBC's "Community."

 Gator Growl is paying McHale $85,000 for his appearance.

Gator Growl producer Aaron Heger said McHale scored well on student and alumni surveys, and his fee is within the desired price range.

 "We were very excited to see the positive feedback he got," Heger said.

 Comedians are an annual tradition at Gator Growl. Last year, comedian Aziz Ansari of NBC's "Parks and Recreation" was paid $100,000 for his appearance, and stand-up comic Kevin Hart was paid $50,000.

 Gator Growl will take place on Nov. 4 in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

Student tickets cost $15, and general admission tickets are $25. The price of all tickets increases by $5 during homecoming week.
