Jeff Green (comedian)

Jeff Green (born February 23 1964 in Chester) is an English comedian and writer.

Stand-up

He frequently appears in stand-up festivals around the country and on London's famed West End. His first solo tour in the United Kingdom sold out every show, and was broadcast on the ITV network. Coming out of the politically correct Alternative comedy scene of the 80’s, with it's strict rules on sexism and racism he was the first of the modern UK comedians to write and perform Relationship/Girlfriend stand-up comedy material. What followed was the efforts of so many less skillful comedians that it has now become a clichéd comedy form. Although still considered by some as a ‘Relationship’ comic, very little of his live material now actually covers the topic.

Television and Radio

His first TV stand-up show "Jeff green Live" recorded at Her Majesty's Theatre was shown on the ITV network on 29th December 1996. His second ITV show "Jeff Green Up West" recorded at The Gielgud Theatre was shown in May 1997. Both shows were watched by over 3 million viewers. "Back From The Bewiderness" his third stand-up show recorded in 2003 at The Gielgud Theatre has been shown several times on The Paramount Comedy Channel.

He has starred in several BBC television panel games and shows, such as Jo Brand's "Hot Potatoes", "Never Mind the Buzzcocks" and "Have I Got News For You". He has also made appearances on ITV's daytime show "This Morning" and on Australian TV in "Spicks and Specks". In 2002 he provided the voice-over for "The Football Years" on Sky One. In August 2007 his six part series "The Green Guide to Life" was broadcast on BBC Radio 2.

Writer

His first book, "The A-Z of Living Together" was a commercial and critical success, reaching the fifth spot of the "Sunday Times" Bestsellers List and remaining in the top ten for five weeks. His follow up books were titled: "The A-Z of Being Single" and "The A-Z of Having a Baby". All three books have been translated into several languages including Polish, Portuguese, Finnish, Serbian, and Spanish. He has also written stand-up material for Jo Brand, Jack Dee, Steve Coogan and Lee Evans He lives in Hampstead London.
