Comm Studies Major Finds Success in Comedy

Posted on Friday, November 12th, 2010

Communication Studies major Eva Andersen, a senior from Center Point, was showcased on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Nov. 10, 2010, for a “Jaywalking All-Stars” segment.  Tonight Show producers first discovered Andersen when she did a "Jaywalking" stint with Jay while in Los Angeles for her Entertainment Tonight internship last summer.  She was so funny answering a question on “rules for relationships,” they invited her back and flew her to California for a taping of an all-star segment in late October.

Andersen will soon move from West Coast comedy to the East Coast comedy.  She will finish up her studies at UNI with an internship at The Colbert Report in New York beginning in January.
