Arriving fashionably late, Eddie Ifft, a stand up comedian who has performed on Comedy Central and NBC’s Last Comic Standing, gave a show here at Cabrini in Grace Hall on Wednesday, Jan. 26. CAP Board sponsored the event with numerous students in attendance.

Ifft managed to perform a little over an hour set, with jokes referring to anything and everything. Trying his best to stick to his routine, he kept getting interrupted by people walking through the building, and unfortunately for them, he would improvise on their behalf. An energetic man full of wit, his show was non-stop comedy. Packed with sarcastic humor, and blatantly funny jokes, the show was pretty entertaining.

Competing with another event in the Dixon Center, the Dodgeball Tournament, Eddie Ifft had a decent turn out with about 20 to 25 people at the event. One drawback of the show was that there was not enough advertising to let students on campus know about the event. There was one lone sign hanging in the entrance way to Founder’s Hall. There was more advertising for the Dodgeball Tournament than the comedian.

Despite the drawbacks of the advertising, the event was well worth attending. Ifft will be traveling throughout the east coast to perform at other universities and colleges, as well as performing on the Tonight Show in a few weeks. If given the chance, get out and see Eddie Ifft perform, and visit his website at www.eddieifft.com.
