Jeff Applebaum at Wharf Room Comedy
A great night of comedy with headliner Jeff Applebaum!
After 19 years in California, this New York City native is finally learning to speak English. Jeff's clean comedy examines his particular life experiences, which include being the only white kid on his Little League team in Queens, having a Chinese wife who orders from take-out menus in fluent Mandarin, and raising a pre-teen son who calls himself "Jewnese," because he says it sounds better than "Chine-ish."
Jeff recently made his national TV debut on CBS as a comedian on the "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson."
Jeff was cast by Sandy Hackett, the late Buddy Hackett's son, to play the principal role of Joey Bishop in the long-running musical tribute "The Rat Pack Is Back," in San Francisco, Chicago, and Las Vegas. Jeff is also credited and appears in the blockbuster film "The Pursuit of Happyness," starring Will Smith.
Jeff has been entertaining people all around North America for over 14 years, including audiences of more than 10,000 people at the ARCO Arena (in Sacramento) and the Anaheim Convention Center. His down-to-earth style and resemblance to popular TV characters has led to great shows at clubs, colleges, and corporate functions.
Jeff won the "Comedian of the Year - 2003" in the SF Bay Area Cabaret Competition. Prior to comedy, Jeff worked as an engineer, using his two degrees from MIT. He also wrote, produced, and starred in a music video, and is a HUGE Jackie Chan fan. Clearly Jeff has A.D.D. and forgot what he was going to say next.
