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 365 days) 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. Subject matter roams from “Sounds of the Rainforest” albums, shopping for jewelry at “Jared” and the real definition of “make-up sex”—masturbating with Noxzema. But his routine’s most endearing jokes focus on the on/off relationship with his father: “My dad was like, ‘Cut your hair, you’re starting to look like a girl.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, I look like a girl … but I make love like a woman.’” (Andy Seifert)
