Jeff’s rapid-fire humor, which centers on marriage and family, is a hit with all ages. Regarded as one of the premiere clean comedians working today, Jeff began his career in comedy clubs in 1978. Humiliated by the low pay and lack of respect, Jeff turned to drugs and alcohol, nearly destroying his marriage, family and career. He got sober In 1987, found God a decade later, and then did what all good comedians do…. found the humor in it all.
