Jeff’s performance last night was great. The feedback we are receiving from both our staff and our Members is fantastic. Our Members thoroughly enjoyed the evening and indicated that last night was our best Annual Dinner ever. Jeff had everyone in the room laughing and not a single person left early (which had been the case in previous annual meetings). We had a few members that even asked for more as Jeff’s performance was coming to a close. His professionalism was outstanding and stage presence just as good. We are thrilled that he was our keynote and enjoyed his performance very much.

Jeff was fantastic as usual. I had lots compliments from audience members. Many stated that Jeff was a breath of fresh air in these challenging times. His ability to connect with his audience is outstanding and his material is timeless. He was a smash hit and I look forward to booking him again in the future.

Jeff Allen is a favorite with corporations that wish to provide top-shelf comedy while knowing that the entertainment will appeal to all present and be totally appropriate.
Performing comedy for over four decades, Jeff Allen’s work has been seen on every cable comedy show in the U.S. including Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and VH1’s Standup Spotlight. His one-hour special, Happy Wife, Happy Life aired on the Odyssey Channel and Family Net. He’s been featured on the Grand Ole Opry, the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen and the Montreal Just for Laughs International Comedy Festival – the world’s most prestigious comedy venues.
Jeff Allen is regarded as one of the premier clean comedians working today. Most of his humor centers on marriage and living with teenagers – material to which everyone can relate. Watch his videos and you’ll see the difference. The humor he packs into his performance comes rapid-fire, and doesn’t stop until the end.
It’s the kiss of death to build up a comedian, because there is always the chance that it will make your expectations higher than he is able to deliver. That’s not really a possibility here. Without fail, Jeff Allen knocks it out of the park every time – and not one nasty word.

Jeff is a true professional, passionate about his craft, terrific to work with, and, he fully engages his audience. His humor ranges from subtle nuanced comic observations to outright in-your-face funny. The audience was rolling in the aisles during his show. I would absolutely book him again, and again, and again.
Charlie Beck, Executive Producer, Sisu Arts, Inc., Palatine, IL
Jeff was fantastic. The audiences loved him! I’ve had several requests already to invite him back. A co-worker who attended the show wrote: “Great show last night. Full house, everyone was pleased with Jeff’s ability to be serious with the audience and moments later having them laughing freely. He truly is a man of honest expression. Great find!” I found Jeff to be quite cordial and very professional off stage as well. Things went very smoothly and overall it was a great experience.
