About
Jeff Larson has been active as a stand-up comedian for the past ten years. He has performed in a variety of comedy clubs (e.g. ACME, the Joke Joint, Goonie's) in the upper midwest, as well as for community theatre and arts centers (e.g. the Paramount Theatre in Austin, Mn., Crossings at Carnegie in Zumbrota, Mn.), American Legion/VFW halls, service clubs such as the Elks and Lion's Club, other "corporate" as well as fund raising events. Jeff has connections with many other comedians, and while he is available as a single performer, he can put together a package of multiple comedians for your events, as he has done multiple times for the Paramount Theatre for example. Fees are reasonable and discounts are sometimes available for charity events.
Jeff has great stage presence and successfully connects with adults of all ages likely because so much of his material derives from universal experiences. In his act, he discusses first, and second girlfriends, and how he lost them, his wife's tendency to "grade" his behavior, Karaoke, nuclear war and the "desks that saved us" as well as why Myley Cyrus is his favorite comedian. He is not averse to telling a suggestive joke but he never veers to anything mean-spirited or R or X rated material. He can tailor his comedy to the audience at hand, as demonstrated by his performances at two church fundraisers and one senior center, and will work with you to ensure that you get the type of show you desire for your event. Jeff has always revered the comedy stylings of Steve Martin, and David Letterman among others, and counts these icons as primary influences; however, he has strived to create his own unique comedy persona and style.
Jeff and his humor have been highlighted in recent feature articles (not ads) in the Post- Bulletin (Rochester, Mn.)--May 12, 2016 (owner of local comedy club states in article--Jeff is a "great, seasoned performer"); Post Bulletin article--Dec. 8th, 2016; and in the Austin (Mn.) Daily Herald March 26, 2017 (front page article on upcoming show). Jeff would like to make his talent (and the talents of his friends in comedy) available to comedy clubs, service clubs,or any event planner (corporate and private events, fundraising, weddings, class reunions, private parties, etc.) looking to make their event special and successful.

Jeff did a fantastic job! He had relatable, current and most importantly... funny material! He has a comforting stage presence that makes you relate to him immediately while on stage. He was very easy to work with and communication prior to the show was very helpful to ensure both he and I knew the flow for the evening. I would definitely recommend Jeff!!

Jeff Larson was very entertaining and authentic as a person and comedian. He presented to caregivers with loved ones who have dementia. He incorporated good jokes, music, and audience participation. Wonderful!

Based on the responses from the audience, Mr. Larson was ill prepared. He had to use notes and would lose his place on his notes. Very unprofessional in my opinion when you're not prepared properly. He had no understanding of his audience and who he was playing to. Some of his jokes were ill advised. Jokes on gun shootings in a high school are not appropriate. The audience felt badly for his wife who acted as the crew. He was perpetually shouting at her as she ran the music. Very disappointed in his performance. Wasn't worth the $400 which I realize is cheap.

Jeff Larson Stand Up Comedian’s Response:

I did feel I was well prepared for this event but maybe not enough. One big problem- I planned to bring along a younger comedian who would do 20 minutes, he's only a couple years out of high school, I figured he would be more "relatable" than me for sure with this audience for a portion of the show. He told me very late yesterday that he couldn't make it. Since I had planned for 40 minutes of comedy, rather then 60, I scrambled at times to get to 60 minutes. We all heard a loud noise during the event, in the moment, I made a remark about a "lockdown" which isn't appropriate, I regret this deeply. I dearly love my wife and her great support and am making amends.
