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. He is a rare mix of geeky, cool, out-of-control, and calculated.
Jeb's animated performances reflect his colorful life. In the job world, he has been a construction worker, a logger, journalist, schoolteacher, yoga teacher, street musician, and youth at risk counselor. He has worked in the entertainment industry for 15 years: children's theater; dozens of sketch and improvisational revues; radio shows; street theater; and roles as club and festival emcee, head-writer, and director.
Jeb can work clean or "blue", and can relate to married couples, young singles, college students, blue collar workers, geeks and alternative-minded smart people.
Jeb has recently completed his record breaking, "Overdrive Tour." 400 Stand-up comedy shows in fewer than 10 months. These sets were throughout Chicago and the Midwest. Recent credits include work at work at The Laughing Post in MI, and Comedy on State, Madison WI, Giggles, WI, JDs Comedy Cafe, WI, The Comedy Zone, VT. Jeb is based out of Chicago, and travels throughout the country.
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."
Jeb's shows are arranged as "complete packages", which can include additional comics, improv games, a comedy roast, lighting and sound equipment. Jeb has a decade of improv experience with the best improv actors in Chicago, and can also provide a 100% improv show.
