“Jeff Allen is the best comedian working today. Technically, he is considered peerless and experienced comics have acknowledged Jeff’s superiority for years with little argument. They understand that the best stand-ups present their material with an approach similar to a singer performing hit songs in concert. There is a rise and fall to the perfect delivery that, once found, is presented in the same way every time. To us, the audience, that several minutes of subject matter apparently being explored and related from stage seems fresh and unrehearsed. The thoughts appear immediate; the words articulated crisply and with a daring we suspect has been channeled from a higher place of perception than the one we are allowed to inhabit. In reality, what we are observing is the “illusion of spontaneity” and Jeff Allen has become the master of that difficult art. If an election were held today in which only comedians were allowed to vote – and no one could vote for themselves – Jeff would win in a landslide.”

“I just wanted to tell you how much your comedy means to me. I have been real sick for a while, and haven’t been able to leave my bed. One day, I was flicking through the channels on TV and I stopped at the worship channel. I saw a preview of your comedy CD, and a picture of you looking confused. So I kept it on, and listened. You made me laugh so hard, that for the time being, I forgot how sick I was. I could even move my arms well. I felt good. I watched it again the next day. You make me feel well.”

“My husband, son and I were blessed to see you at the Elcoe last year and were hoping to see you again in Chesterton this year but was told the event is sold out. Your truth and comedy mean so much to us. You have both my hubby and sons imitating you constantly and using your key and catch phrases as part of their everyday banter. Unfortunately, sometimes questions I ask elicit a ‘mannequin man’ response, and I’ve been called ‘Buttercup’ a time or two. I was really touched and impressed by your testimony about yourself and your brother. All in all, my family has a great deal of respect for who God is shaping you to be. We wanted to share this hilarious yet so real experience with our pastor and his wife, as well as our worship leader and his wife, who do so much for our small church in Michigan City, IN. If there are any future IN dates added, can I please be on a list to be notified so we can get tickets right away? Your ministry is important to us and we want to further get it out there to other folks so that they too can experience what is true of most comedy: it’s funny because it is so real. And you are proof positive that, as Christians, we don’t have to be dull, boring stick-in-the-muds. All we have to do is look around at this vast creation and see what is good, light-hearted and funny, and then bring it to life to others. God bless you and Buttercup and your boys! Much love from the Bare family.”

“Thanks Jeff, for making us laugh and laugh. Thank you for coming into our living room and binding our family together. Our children, years down the road, will look back and remember how you were a part of our family time… helping to build strong bonds of affection and memories. And in a unique way, delivering the truth in humor.”

“No doubt, you are the funniest man on the planet… and solid proof that intelligent, witty reflections on life are so much funnier than the dirt that tries to pass for comedy today. Thank you. Thank you.”

“We were so thrilled to be able to attend your Zanies show tonight in Nashville. My 16-year-old son and I first heard you after my husband deployed in 2006 and a friend gave us one of your CDs for Christmas. We laughed hysterically! Once again my husband has just deployed (to Africa this time) and we were very excited to be able to enjoy you live. As we were driving out of Nashville back to Ft, Campbell, my son said, “I’d really like to meet him sometime, Mom. I really would. He’s such a great guy!” It makes me very happy to have a son who likes your clean comedy rather than the Simpsons or South Park versions of funny.”

Actual Reviews for “Happy Wife, Happy Life®, Revisited”
By D. Justham
I have heard a lot of his material on XM Comedy and saw him on Bananas. When we were having some couples get together I bought Happy Wife, Happy Life, Revisited to watch with them. I watched it once before the get together and then my kids wanted to see it so watched again. We loved it each time, but then by the time we got to the get-together I did not expect to laugh much as it was all so familiar. Was I wrong! I laughed harder than ever as the group was howling. Adding the laughing dynamics of others was magical in itself. My suggestion is get it and invite at least 3 or 4 couples over in the age group of 30 to 60 who have kids. Makes sure to spread the age group out and have at least one couple who are going through or have gone through menopause. Watch it and your sinuses and eyes will be killing you as you laugh harder than you thought possible. Watch the bonus testimony first so you see where Jeff is coming from, than watch the comedy portion. Well worth it!
This is a comedy act for the whole family. It is clean and very funny. As one would probably guess from the title, this routine focuses a lot on humorous interactions between husbands and wives. It also includes funny things regarding children. Although so many comedians these days cannot seem to make a joke without crudity, Jeff Allen is not one of them. He does a great job of keeping the audience entertained without resorting to the gutter.
As of this date, I have ordered 5 copies of, “Happy Wife, Happy Life Revisited.” I keep giving them away. Except for one and IT’S MINE! This is the funniest video I have ever seen. The original, “Happy Wife, Happy Life” was hilarious, and this one, “Revisited,” is even better. I can hardly wait until Jeff does a video that includes his skit, “The 3 Legged Dog.”
In a world of vulgar comedy this was a welcome addition to our video collection. The whole family could laugh without fear of what unwholesome joke might be waiting to lunge into our living room. One of the best ways to drop $20 bucks for an hour of entertainment.
This DVD is great clean comedy! I had seen clips of this DVD on TV and decided to order it. We laughed so hard!
Actual Responses to “Jeff Allen: My Heart, My Comedy”
Average Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars
Have other DVDs with Jeff on them and even to hear the same joke again is funny as the first. Had a chance to see, or listen to him in person and would travel miles, even states to see him again. One of the greatest CLEAN comics around.Would rate him #1. Even buy second and third copies for other family.
This is so raw and real! It is about God’s grace. If you think your marriage has no hope to survive, then watch this together it may help save your marriage. Jeff’s testimony is awesome! This is a must watch!!!!! Oh and it is also very funny:)
Jeff Allen is one of the funniest comics I have seen since birth. His humor is about real life situations and his face and demeanor help make him who he is, A Star. Put a tight belt on and get ready to keep you insides from falling out.
Jeff Allen is a funny clean comedian. This video captures a side of his life and comedy, along with his wife, on how they have endured sorrow through the night but God made joy come in the morning.
I first heard the comedy of Jeff Allen on late night talk radio. I am always impressed by comedians who are actually funny without using unnecessary profanity. Unfortunately, they are not the norm. Mr. & Mrs. Allen’s testimony regarding their survival as a married couple was really incredible. They are not preaching, they just tell their story of how their faith saved them. I recommend this DVD to anyone who is looking for some laughs and also a story of the strength of having faith in God.

“An absolute must have comedy CD [and DVD]”
Review of Jeff Allen – Bananas by Serious Comedy
“Allen is a born again Christian and the last half of his set on this comedy DVD is his profession of faith. He tells how he has found God. Allen does it so honestly and sincerely that you are captivated by his story and definitely want to hear it to its conclusion. It is a fascinating story.”
