Up-and-coming comedian Ronnie Jordan will perform at SUNY Cortland on Wednesday, Feb. 1.
Sponsored by the Student Activities Board, the comedy show will begin at 8 p.m. in Corey Union Function Room and is free and open to the public.
Jordan headlines the RJE Comedy Cabaret Tour, the longest running and highest grossing comedy tour targeting colleges and universities. He broke booking records last spring by touring 102 colleges in 112 days during his first year with the Auburn Moon Agency.
In 2001, Jordan was recognized by Uptown Comedy Corner in Atlanta, Ga., and crowned its “Rookie of the Year.” He has since shared the stage with comedians Dave Chappelle, Rickey Smiley, Bruce Bruce, Earthquake, Mike Epps and Arnez J.
The crowd favorite at the Miller Lite King and Queens of Comedy Search Tour, Jordan has served as an opening act for the Queens of Comedy 12-city tour featuring famed female comedians Sommore, Monique and Adelle Givens. He also has starred on the Crown Royal Comedy Soul Fest Tour featuring rhythm and blues music legends Earth, Wind and Fire, and the Isley Brothers.
