Award-winning British comedian Jeff Green has become a well known face and voice on Australian TV and radio since arriving for his first Melbourne International Comedy Festival performance here in 1996. Amongst his many Australian TV credits are Spicks and Specks (ABC), Good News Week (Ten) as well as numerous appearances on the Melbourne Comedy Festival Gala (Ten). More recently two of his stand-up specials Jeff Green – Up West and Back From The Bewilderness were shown on consecutive prime time Saturday night ABC 1.
Now an Australian resident (he has an Australian wife, some have accused him of social climbing but he disputes that), Jeff is hugely in demand in the UK, Europe and Asia – his stand-up comedy background is impressive: A solo West-End season and three full length UK TV comedy specials.
A best selling author with his books selling over 300,000 copies. Jeff is well known on UK radio and TV; his BBC Radio 2 comedy series The Green Guide To Life attracted audience averages of over 3 million radio listeners. His recent UK TV appearances include Celebrity Masterchef (twice), Michael Mcintyre’s Comedy Roadshow (both BBC1) and as team captain on Bill Bailey’s Birdwatching Bonanza (Sky 1). In 2013, he released a new DVD titled Jeff Green Live! which was recorded at Hobart’s Theatre Royal. In 2015 Jeff returned to Edinburgh Fringe by invitation to perform a season for legendary Fringe venue The Gilded Balloon’s 30th anniversary, where he once again achieved critical acclaim and sold-out shows.
