"Tight, succinct, and wonderfully enjoyable with her expressive face and quirky personality shining through... was Chicago's Eva la Feva, who portrayed a dashboard hula girl forced to obey the cues of whatever tune the car stereo dial is turned to, with a bashful personality and beguiling facial reactions. A super-cute act from a stunning girl, we're looking forward to seeing more from her."“One of my favorite acts of the night was Eva La Feva, whose act had me in stitches throughout. Eva’s act took you on a roller coaster of emotions and her facial expressions cracked me up!”“My favorite act of the evening that I was actually able to concentrate on was Eva La Feva’s Dashboard Hula girl responding to the car radio. It was original, clever, sexy, funny, well-executed, and fun to watch from start to finish.”
