The only thing predictable about Jeff Lawrence is that he's funny. This gay, Jewish stand-up comedian was once a rock singer who appeared with Bob Dylan on the Grammy Awards. He’s a die hard Yankee, Jets, and Brooklyn Nets fan, a recovered substance abuser, and is against gay marriage. Well, at least until he figures out gay dating. If that's too much information too soon, too bad. In Jeff's world it's never soon enough.
His unique blend of no holds barred stand-up is catching on across the country. Whether he’s denouncing organized religion, debunking gay stereotypes, or joking about his neighborhood in Chinatown, he always leaves audiences wanting more. His ability to be lovable and searing at the same time is also making him a sought after roast master.
Jeff's You Tube videos are gaining international attention, with over 250,000 hits combined. He was recently taped for Comedy Time TV, and has appeared in the NY Underground Comedy Festival, The Music is a Joke Reality Series, and the NY Comedy Competition. Jeff has been mentioned in the New York Daily News and Time Out New York, featured in GALA magazine, and has been heard on Mancow Radio.
After beginning his entertainment career as a rock singer, Jeff migrated to the stage playing Ernest Hemingway in the musical "Scott and Zelda" at the Wings Theater in NYC. As a musician and singer, Jeff has recorded and performed with members of the Cult and Buck Cherry, released records, charted on radio, and toured internationally. He has also appeared in several commercial, film and television roles.
