This past Friday night CAB hosted comedian Corey Rodrigues and provided free mozzarella sticks and broccoli and cheese tater tots. Overall, there was a terrific turn out and Corey was absolutely hilarious. He was able to blend comedy with applicable life lessons and was able to get students to interact with him on stage.

Having been a criminal justice major, he quickly bonded with the other criminal justice majors in the crowd, but also engaged with many other students of other studies. He also made jokes about bad roommate stories and even invited other students to share stories if they were able. Lucky for him, there was an RA in the crowd to consult to see what actions should have been taken in each situation. My favorite joke was when he started talking about differences in culture between the New York/New England area versus farther south; in particular, West Virginia. He ended his show on a philosophical note by giving advice for college students: have fun and enjoy college, but also remember that grades are important for your future as well.

If you liked his set, he released an album Friday night called My Turn, which is available on iTunes, GooglePlay, Spotify, and Amazon Music. He also has a podcast called 30JobsLater that you should check out!
