The CAB Comedy Committee is the sector of Campus Activities Board that puts on improvisational and stand-up comedian performances, as well as competitions and fun activities for students. All events are free and occur throughout the semester both on and off campus. Past events include the Rose Hill Code scavenger hunt, the Upright Citizens Brigade Touring Company Improv show, 'Awkward Ramily Photo' photo booth series, and the annual Last Comic Standing student competition.


The Concert Committee aims to provide Fordham students with activities of social, educational, and  cultural nature congruent with Jesuit ideals. The primary responsibility of the Concert Committee is to  bring musical acts for CAB’s large programming weekends, specifically Spring Weekend. At anytime, the Concert Committee may co­sponsor an event with any other University organization.
