Jeff Allen is a comedian that specializes in humor for all ages. He brings Clean Comedy to Corporate Events and makes jokes that are easy for people from all locations and backgrounds to understand.
It can be difficult to find an entertainer with broad appeal, but Allen fits the bill. He does standup to entertain others, not to promote his own ideas and agendas. While many comedians use their acts as platforms to present themselves as characters, Allen simply expresses his amusing observations of people and situations. He is not interested in becoming a personality that exists outside of his comedy.
Jeff Allen strives to create a brand of comedy that families can enjoy together. His best jokes examine the idiosyncrasies of small-town life and the ways in which people interact with each other. He finds the humor in well-worn cliches and makes them contemporary and fresh again. He also comments on the amusing things people do as they grow older. This is all done in fondness. Other comedians might be malicious and mock the elderly or citizens of particular cities, but Allen’s humor belies a fondness for those things. He would not talk about something in jest if he did not really enjoy and appreciate it.
Allen’s appeal lies in how relatable he is. His humor does not depend on obscure pop cultural references or deep knowledge of any academic fields. He talks about the things that everyone sees every day but might not fully notice. Even if one of his jokes touches on something that an audience member might have never experienced, it is easy enough to grasp what Allen is saying. He does not want anyone to be excluded from his humor. He wants to create a sense of commonality through his observations of life’s small moments.
Allen’s jokes about the weather extend well beyond stereotypical time-fillers. When he talks about his experiences with the climates in various locations, he is really telling the story of his life’s travels. When he lovingly mocks the people that he has encountered in those places, he is inserting them into the long-form narrative of his life. His stories about the things he did in those places are not particular stories about him and only him. They are narratives of the way the people in those cities really live. He is sharing the flavor of all of these places as seen through his own eyes.
Allen combines his gentle humor with inspiration and hard-earned wisdom. He prides himself on his ability to make audiences laugh without resorting to crudeness and vulgarity. He resists trends and instead focuses on tried-and-true comedy techniques that are guaranteed to make people smile. He is a celebrity in the world of corporate events, where it can be incredibly challenging to find entertainment that appeals to people who have flown in from all over the country. He received a seal of approval from the White House when he performed at George W. Bush’s inaugural ceremony. He is routinely asked to perform for the troops that are stationed overseas. He reminds them of all of the best parts of the country for which they are fighting.
He is proud to be one of the biggest current stars in clean comedy. He does not view himself as uncool for not delving into edgier subject matter. He feels that his humor is rooted in classic storytelling and traditional jokes that have persevered because people never stopped enjoying them. His dependable comedy always goes over well with large crowds that span multiple demographics. Anyone who is currently planning a large event would impress all of his attendees and higher-ups by hiring Jeff Allen.
