Jeff was born and raised in Kenosha, Wisconsin and worked as a musician before following his passion, comedy. He established himself as a top-tier standup comedian before moving behind the camera to become one of the most respected producers and writers in Talk & Variety.
As a performer… Jeff is a veteran of the late night talk shows plus four of his own specials, most recently on Comedy Central. He is the voice of Chet Waterhouse on PodcastOne’s “Play With Pain!” and the Adam Carolla Podcast. He stars in The Dick Rossi Show on the Funny or Die, and also cleans up nicely for the corporate crowd, including IBM, Budweiser, Amex, ING and more.
Behind the camera… Jeff is a highly regarded producer and writer. He was executive producer on Netflix's Brian Regan Project, Animal Planet’s “Animal Nation” with Anthony Anderson, head writer on “The Queen Latifah Show” and executive producer on Russell Brand’s “Brand X.” He’s written for Billy Crystal on The Oscars, won two Emmys for his work on HBO’S “Dennis Miller Live”, wrote on the great “Larry Sanders Show,” & wrote the Warner Brothers feature, “Jack Frost.”
Because of his unique success on both sides of the camera… Jeff is especially adept as an “artist-friendly” producer, knowing how best to achieve the goals of both Talent and Network.
Jeff is married and is the proud father of a 10-year-old girl.
