Jeff Allen combines clean, hilarious humor like no other comedian working today. He regularly appears on television, radio, and venues across the country. With over 140 million video views, Jeff Allen is the world’s funniest, most inspiring comedian! In his new tour, The America I Grew Up In, Jeff’s sidesplitting comedy drives home the humor in everyday family life, the ups and downs of marriage, the challenge of raising children, the bliss of the empty nest (followed by the unexpected returns to said nest) and the joys of being a grandparent. Audiences will immensely enjoy taking this journey with Jeff as he nostalgically weaves in how our country has changed since his formative years in the sixties.
