Comedy Night at ASU Club Caf�
The stand-up routines of New York-based comedian Dan Ahdoot will highlight the final fall semester installment of Angelo State University’s Club Caf� coffee house entertainment series Wednesday, Nov. 28, in the Houston Harte University Center.
Ahdoot will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 28 in the University Center’s C.J. Davidson Conference Center. Admission price is $1 and all those who attend will receive a free Club Caf� coffee mug. Coffee, cappuccino, hot chocolate and light refreshments will be served.
An honors graduate of Johns Hopkins University, Ahdoot began his career as a comedian right after graduation and performs regularly at comedy clubs in Manhattan. His act is based on his hilarious observations about everyday life as a young, hip kid living in New York City, coupled with his upbringing as a first-generation American. His stage presence blends charm, likability and wit in a way that keeps the crowd in stitches and, at the same time, very comfortable.
A finalist on Season Two of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” Ahdoot is a staff writer for MTV’s “Short Circuitz.” He has also written for Comedy Central’s “Crank Yankers” and has been featured on Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend” and ABC’s “20/20.”
Ahdoot has opened for comedians Jay Mohr, Lewis Black and Patton Oswalt and is a regular on the Sirius Satellite Radio show “Unleashed.” He has also taken first prize in the Philadelphia Comedy Competition and the NYC Triad Comedy Competition.
