Jeff Innocent

The body of a nightclub bouncer and the brains of a university boffin.

The Guardian

It should be made law that every British citizen go and see Jeff Innocent.

Evening Standard

Terrific, thought-through comedy with a big warm heart.

The Scotsman

In short, he’s one funny man.


East Ender Jeff Innocent‘s unique appeal lies in the contrast between his East End ‘Geezer’ appearance and demeanour, and his educated, philosophical delivery and subject matter.

Jeff is a popular and experienced stand up comedian, actor, writer and cultural commentator. As a stand up comedian he has reached near legendary status among his peers and audience alike by staying at the top of his game for over 15 years.

He was voted Best Live Club Comedian 2016 at the UK Comedy Awards and was Runner Up for 2013, 2014 and 2015, won Best In Fest at the Norwich Comedy Festival 2014 and was nominated in the 2015 Chortle Awards Best Live Club Act category.

He continues to cement his position within the premiership of British comedians with his weekly performances at clubs around the UK and featured in the 2013 movie, The Comedy Store, Raw and Uncut.

He has also taken solo shows to The Edinburgh Fringe and has toured the UK with his show Jeff Innocent’s Guide to Growing Old in the 21st Century and is constantly touring the UK. The spread of the comedy circuit globally has found Jeff performing in such unlikely and far flung locations as China, India, Norway and Vietnam to name but a few.

His recent acting credits include appearances in the children’s TV programme, Little Howards Big Question and BBC’s extremely popular historical drama series, Call The Midwife.

As a writer he has contributed to a number of publications and websites such The Independent, The Ecologist and London Is Funny, on a wide range of topics including environmental issues, history and music. He also lectures on stand up comedy at The London Comedy School.
