Jeff Applebaum'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 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.
David Studebaker is the winner of the 2009 STC Young Comics Competition, placed 3rd in the 2009 Battle of the Bay Comedy Competition and was a “Critics Choice” in the North Bay Bohemian. Over the past three years his Young Guns of Comedy tour has been featured at some of the finest venues in the Bay Area and is a regular show at the legendary San Francisco Punch Line.
