Through humor and honesty, Jeff Allen, shares a somber testimony of a deflated marriage while questioning the value of life. After one of Jeff’s weakest moments with drugs and alcohol, he sought help through a 12-step program and therapy. It wasn’t until filing for bankruptcy and nearly losing his career, wife, and family that he opened himself to God’s grace through repentance. Admitting that his ignorance and arrogance prevented him for years from seeking a higher power in his recovery, Jeff is humble today about the role God’s grace and mercy has had on his path of sobriety.
Jeff Allen is regarded as one of the premiere clean comedians working today. He has worked at over 1000 churches, fundraisers and other venues. Most of his humor centers on marriage and living with teenagers – material to which everyone can relate. Watch his videos on YouTube and youʹll see the difference. The humor he packs into his performance comes rapid‐fire, and doesnʹt stop until the end. Whether itʹs a set of 15, 30, 60, 90 or 120 minutes, Jeff Allen will make you ache with laughter.
Jeff Allen 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 most prestigious comedy venues in the world. He also headlined his own national comedy tour, Jeff Allen & Friends: Funny People of Faith.
Itʹs 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. Thatʹs not really a possibility here. Without fail, Jeff Allen knocks it out of the park every time ‐ and not one nasty word.
‐ Gary Chapman, Samʹs Place
