Opening for UCB will be Paperback Rhino, Iowa City’s longest-running and most beloved improvisational group. A diverse form of comedy is performed through short-form and long-form improv. As of a month ago, they are now two-time regional champions of the College Improv Tournament and will be going to the national competition in Chicago next March.
The Campus Activities Board is a student-run organization centered on providing countless entertainment options to the University of Iowa community. CAB started the Friday night comedy shows in 2010 to bring big-name comedians with a college student price tag. CAB has featured comedians such as Joel McHale, Kenan Thompson, and BJ Novak.
