Jeff grew up in Montana and fled to California to do something less manly than cattle, mining, or meth. After eight years of boring himself with banking and writing about himself in the third person (which he was told “is not a professional way to email”), he decided to abruptly finish this sentence.
Now he’s a stand-up comic and producer based out of New York City. Jeff has been on the road for the last year, performing in 45 states for delighted audiences from all walks of life.
He’s also the creator and co-host of the popular “Let’s Talk About Sets!” show, a playful podcast by comics in NYC on the “science” & craft of stand-up comedy, which he nerdily co-hosts with comedian and lovable dufus, Harrison Tweed. Notable guests include Roy Wood Jr., Mark Normand, Jackie Kashian, Myq Kaplan, and Joe Zimmerman. The pod is flooded with fan mail from around the world, and a publisher approached Jeff about turning it into a book. The show gets thousands of monthly downloads, consistently rave reviews (see Facebook and iTunes), and the show has even been added to a university curriculum!
Before going on the road, he co-produced one of the top independent comedy shows in Manhattan, Late Night Romp, with Teresa Sheffield. He’s the co-founder of an alternative comedy venue called Brickspot Comedy, a sexy “comedy speakeasy,” that he runs in conjunction with VSPOT Organic and Brickspot’s co-founder, Tristan Smith.
Jeff is also the creator and co-producer of the always-packed monthly comedy dinner show “Special Tonight” with Sadiq Samani, which is on hiatus while he’s doing road work.
All of Jeff’s productions featured the top comics in New York whose credits include Comedy Central, HBO, Last Comic Standing, America’s Got Talent, Netflix, Colbert, Kimmel, Fallon, Conan, etc.
Jeff has written and acted for “Clip Show”, a monthly sketch comedy show in residence at The People’s Improv Theater in Manhattan. His sketches have been featured on Funny Or Die, New York Sketch Fest, and Montreal Sketch fest.
Jeff focuses his darkly smart, high-energy comedy around science, history, technology, sexuality, culture, and his alternative lifestyle. He likes big ideas, weird thoughts, and silly voices. He’s studied comedy writing, stand-up, and improv at the NYC Upright Citizens Brigade Theater, Magnet Theater, Bay Area Theater Sports, and the San Francisco Comedy College.
