Arvin Mitchell brings laughter to Marshall

Comedian Arvin Mitchell performed in front of about 55 Marshall University students and faculty members Thursday as part of the Campus Board Activities’ scheduled March events.

Mitchell’s performance took place in the Marco’s Room, located in the lower level of the Memorial Student Center. The show was free for all students with valid student IDs.

During the show, Mitchell joked about various topics, from his grandfather’s laugh, to the lady was hit his favorite car. Mitchell also did several impressions of famous people, from Bill Cosby and Snoop Dogg to President Barack Obama.

Mitchell said usually it’s hard to do a show in middle of the day, but he thought the show went pretty well.

“I really love how engaged the crowd was,” Mitchell said. “It made me have more fun than I normally do on stage.”

Audience member Kenny Tyler said his favorite part of the show is when Mitchell joked about going on cruises.

“I just got back from a cruise, so I can relate,” Tyler said. “He’s pretty fun.”

Mitchell is the last comedian booked by CAB for the spring semester of 2016.
