Jeff Blanchard

Comedy for the Thinking Man

It has been said of Jeff Blanchard that 25 years of performing and headlining across the country changes a man. Since most of us didn't know him 26 years ago, we'll have to take his word for it.

One this we do know about Jeff Blanchard and his numerous appearances at the Funny Stop is that the descriptions of Jeff being called "dynamic," "opinionated" and "irascible" are right on the money and those who call him “…one the funniest men in Cleveland,” “an opinionated slob" and “a pure entertainer” will get no arguement from us.

Jeff's show is different because he never writes anything down. His organic humor takes hold of the audience and leads them on an honest, perspective changing ride.

Jeff is co-founder of Cleveland’s longest running improv comedy troupe and theater; “Cabaret Dada Improvisational Theater and Something Dada Improvisational Comedy Co.” He trained with Del Close, Improv. innovator, Second City director and Saturday Night Live consultant. He co-starred in the short film “Facebook Faux Pas” which premiered at The Cleveland International Film Festival.

Jeff is also a cast member on the YouTube sensation web-series “Man in the Box” which has over 60,000 subscribers, nearly 200 episodes and was aired on Cinemax OnDemand. He has also appeared on television as a featured comic on “Saturday Night at The Funny Farm” on CBS, as Jimmy Barton in “The Babe Ruth Story” on ABC, as a regular on “Fox Unplugged” on Fox, as the host of the PBS specials “90 Degrees South” and “The Science of Cooking” and “The Quiz Bus” and was the executive producer for and performed on "The Something Dada Show" which aired on the UPN Network and WUAB locally. 

Jeff was also seen on Channel 19 WOIO as “The Cleveland Guy”, which received 2 Emmy Awards and a Telly Award, as well as, on-air weekly with “Tailgate 19” on CBS. Jeff was also the co-Host of “Scott & Jeff’s Morning Show” on 98.5 FM WNCX. He appeared in the feature films; “Striking Point” as John Burke, “My Summer Story” as The Bumpas’, “Counterforce” and “Apres Film” as Jeff the Bartender.

Four Evenings PLUS a Saturday Afternoon Show!

There was a time, not so long ago, when only friends and by passers walking down a New York street saw bright promise combined with energetic talent when entertainer Gemini strutted his stuff.

Several Las Vegas, Palladium, Atlantic City, and hundreds of comedy clubs later, Gemini's magic and ambience are changing things.

Everything about Gemini and his show is a cut above fantasy. His magic, his jokes, the way he reads the audience easier than a front page headline. Because of his unique style of showmanship he not only keeps the show in motion with his jokes, he has several magic sets as well.

The "Maestro of Magic & Laughter" is also an accomplished ventriloquist, with several "friends" that keep the audience in the palm of his hand.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, his streetwise sense of humor and wit came in handy throughout his life "in the neighborhood." As he says, "I do a little bit of comedy and a little bit of magic. What you laugh at, that's the comedy. What you don't, well, that's the magic."

A Special Family Magic Show will be offered Saturday, November 18th at 2:00PM - Call 330-923-4700 for reservations.
