Jeff Paul brings a care free, no holds barred attitude, and razor sharp wit to every stage he performs on. No topic is off limits and his unmistakable charm has allowed him to push the limits of comedy for years, making him one of the country’s favourite comedians. Jeff’s act is based on his life observations, resulting in raw, often embarrassing stories of failed relationships, his physical appearance and drugs and alcohol.
He will keep you laughing from start to finish. In addition to being a Yuk Yuk’s regular, Jeff was selected for New Faces at JFL42 in Toronto, accepted to the Sudbury Comedy Festival (2016, 2017), headlined the Cottage Country Comedy Festival, was chosen twice to showcase for COCA, has been featured twice in the NXNE Festival and can be seen hosting his weekly Dope N’ Mic show at Toronto’s famed Underground Comedy Club.
