Jeff Innocent
“It should be made law that every British Citizen must go and see Jeff Innocent. He’s that funny.”
Jeff Innocent has reached near legendary status amongst audiences and fellow comedians alike by remaining at the top of his game for over 15 years and continues to cement his status as one of the country’s leading acts, and is now very much part of the comedy gentry. Jeff has unique appeal due to his contrast between his east end ‘Geezer’ appearance and demeanour along with his educated philosophical delivery. He also appears regularly on TV and radio as a comedian, actor and cultural commentator. Innocent starred alongside Vinnie Jones playing a prisoner in the hit film Mean Machine and has also appeared on later with Jools Holland.
“Jeff Innocent is ‘The Guv’nor'” – The Mirror | “The body of a Night Club Bounce and the brain of a university boffin” – The Guardian
