Short Bio and Media Quotes
Jeb Cadwell’s lighthearted antics, sharp-wit and charismatic small-town demeanor consistently make him an audience favorite. His energetic, unorthodox style generates countless laughs and engages patrons of all ages and walks of life. He gives each show a catered touch by studying and including material about the places and people he visits.
TimeOut Chicago says:
“Cadwell’s got the talent to match his drive. His material is intelligent and complex, delivered with a sarcastic drawl for an effect that conjures Steve Martin and Owen Wilson.”
NewCity Stage says:
“Second City-trained sketch/stand-up comic Jeb Cadwell is an easy guy to cheer for, the lovable dorky type who seems genuinely excited when his audiences respond positively and a go-getter whose 2006-07 “Overdrive Tour” (including 400 shows in under 10 months) easily establishes him as the hardest-working man in stand-up (and, quite possibly, a robot). Cadwell’s on-stage persona presumably mirrors his off-stage personality, a cheery, always-smiling kind of a guy, very Seth Meyersesque but completely void of any smugness.”
Chicago Reader Says:
“Takes imaginative leaps that pay off in gasping, belly-aching laughs”
