    Jeff Caldwell

    “Smart and funny.” That's what the late legend George Carlin had to say about Jeff Caldwell after seeing him at Caroline’s Comedy Club in New York. We couldn't agree more. Jeff Caldwell's quick wit, good taste, and clever material have made him a favorite nationwide. Jeff has shown his comic wares on TV as the host of ESPN's “Sports Figures” and as a standup performer on many shows incuding Metro Channel’s “New Joke City with Robert Klein”, ESPN’s “The Lighter Side of Sports”, A&E’s “An Evening at the Improv”, multiple appearances on “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” and his six wildly successful sets on CBS’ “Late Show with David Letterman” where he was one of Dave’s favorite acts. Jeff is also in demand on the college circuit and has toured the country with Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart.

    At one Washington, D.C. show, Al and Tipper Gore raved “very funny, very funny!” before jealous Secret Service agents rudely swept them away. Jeff is a rare comic who can make the audience double over with laughter without resorting to sleazy, stupid material. Don’t miss the chance to see this great act for yourself!
