Jeff Larson has been active as a stand-up comedian for the past ten years. He has performed in a variety of comedy clubs (e.g. ACME, the Joke Joint, Goonie's) in the upper midwest, as well as for community theatre and arts centers (e.g. the Paramount Theatre in Austin, Mn., Crossings at Carnegie in Zumbrota, Mn.), American Legion/VFW halls, service clubs such as the Elks and Lion's Club, other "corporate" as well as fund raising events. Jeff has connections with many other comedians, and while he is available as a single performer, he can put together a package of multiple comedians for your events, as he has done multiple times for the Paramount Theatre for example. Fees are reasonable and discounts are sometimes available for charity events.
Jeff has great stage presence and successfully connects with adults of all ages likely because so much of his material derives from universal experiences. In his act, he discusses first, and second girlfriends, and how he lost them, his wife's tendency to "grade" his behavior, Karaoke, nuclear war and the "desks that saved us" as well as why Myley Cyrus is his favorite comedian. He is not averse to telling a suggestive joke but he never veers to anything mean-spirited or R or X rated material. He can tailor his comedy to the audience at hand, as demonstrated by his performances at two church fundraisers and one senior center, and will work with you to ensure that you get the type of show you desire for your event. Jeff has always revered the comedy stylings of Steve Martin, and David Letterman among others, and counts these icons as primary influences; however, he has strived to create his own unique comedy persona and style.
Jeff and his humor have been highlighted in recent feature articles (not ads) in the Post- Bulletin (Rochester, Mn.)--May 12, 2016 (owner of local comedy club states in article--Jeff is a "great, seasoned performer"); Post Bulletin article--Dec. 8th, 2016; and in the Austin (Mn.) Daily Herald March 26, 2017 (front page article on upcoming show). Jeff would like to make his talent (and the talents of his friends in comedy) available to comedy clubs, service clubs,or any event planner (corporate and private events, fundraising, weddings, class reunions, private parties, etc.) looking to make their event special and successful.
