Jeff Innocent

Comedian Profile

Jeff is now very much part of the comedy gentry and widely acknowledge as one of the Uk’s top headlines acts and comperes. He has stormed comedy clubs all over the world including Singapore, Hong Kong, The Philippines, Dubai, Holland, Taiwan and more recently Japan.

He was voted Best Live Club Comedian 2016 at the UK Comedy Awards and was Runner Up in 2015, 2014, and 2013, won Best in Fest at the Norwich Comedy Festival 2014 and was nominated in the 2015 Chortle Awards Best Live Club Act category. His unique appeal lies in the contrast between his East End ‘geezer’ appearance and demeanor, and his educated, philosophical delivery and subject manner, inspiring the Guardian to describe him as a comedian with ‘the body of a nightclub bouncer and the brains of a university boffin’.

Jeff’s many television credits as actor, stand-up and presenter include; Edinburgh Nights (BBC1), Gas (Ch4), I Love 1999 (BBC 1), Later with Jools Holland (BBC 2), The National Lottery Show (BBC1), The Stand Up Show (2 series for BBC 1), Take the Mike (ITV), Time Gentlemen Please (Sky), Real Eastenders (Ch4) and Brief Histories (BBC 3).

A prolific writer, Jeff has written for The Independent and The Scotsman and contributed to the book ‘Sit Down Comedy’ (published by Ebury Press). Jeff is currently researching a documentary for radio and working on several TV projects including a new sketch show for Sky 1.
