He’s appeared on Comedy Central, VH-1, Showtime, and other networks, he’s the author of the book, My Life As A Bystander, and a number of wonderful comedy videos including Happy Life, Happy Wife Revisited and My Heart, My Comedy. His comedy is largely based on his family, and his testimony comes from his recovery from drugs and alcohol.

We close with a couple of my favorite clips from Happy Wife, Happy Life, Revisited. You can find more at www.jeffallencomedy.com.
