Hall of Fame
JJeff MacKinnon is an important comedian who continually refines the art of stating his opinions as facts. He tells jokes that he writes. He tells them real funny-like. He once described himself as "one of the best comedians his parents ever gave birth to." Jeff can be seen seeking attention and validation in comedy clubs, theaters, bars, VFW’s, coffee shops, college auditoriums and/or cafeterias and sidewalks adjacent to those venues. In 2011 alone, he was featured at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Boston Comedy Festival, Los Angeles Comedy Festival, Detroit Laughs Festival and Laughing Skull Comedy Festival. His debut comedy-album, Bring Me To Your Mother was released in September 2011 and sold more copies than zero. Jeff’s comedy has been seen and/or heard on Byron Allen's "Entertainers" NBC's "The Doctors" and Sirius XM. He is also a founding member of Groundlings-bred Hot Ice! Sketch Comedy and the improv-comedy team Ryan James’ Ponies.
