His unique appeal lies in the contrast between his East End ‘Geezer’ appearance and demeanour, and his educated, philosophical delivery and subject matter. Inspiring the guardian to describe him as a comedian with, ‘The body of a nightclub bouncer and the brains of a university boffin’.

He continues to cement his position within the premiership of British comedians with his weekly performances at clubs like The Comedy Store and featuring in the 2013 movie, 'The Comedy Store, Raw and Uncut'. He has also taken solo shows to The Edinburgh Fringe and HAS RECENTLY TOURED THE UK WITH HIS SHOW ENTITLED, 'JEFF INNOCENT'S GUIDE TO GROWING OLD IN THE 21ST CENTURY' and is constantly touring the UK. The spread of the comedy circuit globally has found Jeff performing in such unlikely and far flung locations as China, India, Norway and Vietnam to name but a few.
His recent acting credits include appearances in the children’s TV programme, 'Little Howards Big Question' and BBC’s extremely popular historical drama series, 'Call The Midwife'.
As a writer he has contributed to a number of publications and websites such The Independent, The Ecologist and London Is Funny, on a wide range of topics including environmental issues, history and music. He also lectures on stand up comedy at The London Comedy School.
