In this age of specialization, even comedians need to be cross-functional.
In Jeff Gerbino's case, he starts with over twenty years of comedy experience and combines it with global concert appearances, national television credits ,and appearances on Good Morning America, Arts and Entertainment and Comedy Central.
As the winner of the Twin Cities Laff-Off and first runner-up in the Los Angeles Professional Comedian Contest, Jeff has proven that he can get laughs anywhere and anytime.
Historically, the late 1970's were BC for comedian Jeff Gerbino. It was Before Cable, Before Comedy clubs, Before Children. It was the time where Jeff decided to make a move. Jeff Gerbino moved from his boyhood home in Long Island, New York to
Minneapolis, MN. The reasons for the move were common among young men of the '70's: love of a woman and love of comedy.
Minnesota served as fertile ground for the New Yorker. Between trips to visit his fiancée in Melrose, Minnesota and various day jobs, Jeff Gerbino straddled careers and his art at a time when comedy was just a glow in a few young comedians eyes. With a $1 cover charge, and a hand drawn logo, Jeff championed the newborn comedy industry with a handful of smart-alecs that included Louie Anderson, Scott Hansen and a blue collar bar named Mickey Finns
The St. Paul Pioneer Press called Jeff the "founding father" of the Twin Cities comedy scene as Mickey Finn's quickly became "the place to be" on Friday and Saturday nights. Comics such as Louie Anderson, Jeff Cesario, Stephanie Hodge, Joel Hodgson and Scott Hansen all got their starts there.
In the 1980's, after developing his trademark combination of political impersonations and current event material, Jeff headed to Los Angeles. Jeff was a finalist in the Los Angeles Comedy Contest hosted by Jay Leno and was chosen as one of Hollywood's hottest new comedy stars by the L.A. Weekly.
Jeff quickly became a nationally touring headliner at clubs all over the US. He made numerous appearances on national TV including CBS Morning Show, HBO's Comic Relief, A&E's Comedy On The Road
