Jeff McEnery quickly established himself as one of the fastest rising stars in comedy when he won the prestigious Tim Sims Encouragement Award and followed that up by winning Yuk Yuk’s $25,000 Great Canadian Laugh Off and Best Stand Up Newcomer at the Canadian Comedy Awards. Since then, Jeff has made multiple appearances at every major Canadian comedy festival, including the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, Winnipeg Comedy Festival and Halifax Comedy Festival. In 2015, he was nominated for Best Male Stand Up at the Canadian Comedy Awards and released his first solo comedy CD, Sunset Acres.
As an actor, Jeff is a recurring character on the hit show Letterkenny, playing the role of Alexander. He had a lead role in the critically acclaimed drama Dog Pound and has made guest appearances on Murdoch Mysteries, Covert Affairs, The Jon Dore Television Show and Naturally, Sadie.
McEnery jokes about everything from drunks and skinny people to country music and working as a telemarketer. His small-town humor works in Canada because it is more small-town than big-city. It’s country. “And, gosh darn it, that’s how people in the country talk!” says McEnery in his signature husky drawl.
