The dynamic acting, singing and comedic duo of Dave Ahdoot and Ethan Fixell created smiles and outbursts of laughter as Shippensburg University’s Activities and Program Board hosted their comedy show in the Anthony F. Ceddia Union Building’s Red Zone.
The comedic duo, known as Dave and Ethan, have been best friends since middle school and have gained experience from the People’s Improv Theater in New York.
Ahdoot and Fixell have appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”
They confess to going on at least 200 dates from just asking and posting date requests on Facebook and Twitter.
Women all over the world are willing to go out on double dates with the two comic showmen, they claim.
Their stand-up routine started with a four-minute video that showed them going all over the country trying to get girls to go out with them.
Ahdoot and Fixell not only made fun of the dating scene on their show, but talked about leaving no stone unturned in trying to find a date.
Ahdoot and Fixell gave advice on how to have a successful dating experience, and allowed the audience to share their own dating issues and how they could have had a better date.
Many people in the crowd confessed to experiencing strange situations while being on a date.
After hearing the dating stories from the crowd, Ahdoot and Fixell went into character and re-enacted a dating experience from the audience’s information.
The comedians also talked about how to pick up women in different languages, showing the crowd just how diverse they really are in picking up women.
They did everything. They sang acoustically and made people laugh during the songs “Maybe,” and the crowd favorite, “College Wasn’t What I Thought it Would Be.”
Both songs graphically describe how difficult it is for two guys who really want to find a girl on campus to date.
During the show, they called three single guys and one single girl from the audience to join them on stage and participate in a mock dating game.
Many people in the audience were a little shy at first to actually be part of the act, but with a little applause, they had several people admitting they were single and willing to play the dating game.
