Jeff Cerulli grew up in a tough, predominantly Jewish area in Long Island , New York . The other kids in his school teased him about being Italian. They would often ask him what his family was having for dinner, for the sole purpose of laughing at him when he said spaghetti.

In first grade, Jeff claims that mainly out of jealousy, the other kids ruined Christmas for him. They told him that Santa Claus did not exist; that Santa Claus was about as real as Noah and his ark. Instead of beating up his Jewish classmates, Jeff learned to develop a sense of humor and to laugh these things off.

By the time of his senior year in high school, Jeff had the honored distinction of being the third funniest student in his grade. This might have crushed the dreams of most aspiring comedians, but not Jeff. Today Jeff finds solace in knowing that the first place winner is a raging alcoholic and that the second place winner is a magician. However no one can blame Jeff for his dilatory beginnings since he comes from a very unfunny family.

Both of Jeff's parents as well as his older sister are math teachers. A wild night in the Cerulli household consisted of a game called Math Gladiators (something to this day Jeff still has trouble talking about). Jeff always knew teaching was not the profession for him. Defying his parents wishes for him to at least become a gym teacher, Jeff ventured into the world of stand up comedy. Right from the start, Jeff knew he made the right decision in pursuing comedy.

He started performing at local laundromats, pet shops and supermarkets. While Jeff valued these shows as they prepared him for where he is today, he knew there had to be a more appropriate venue for him to perform at. “Those were some of the best times of my life,” Jeff says “I don't regret anything. If you can get the mom who is just in the supermarket buying some groceries to stop for a minute and laugh, you know you are doing something right.”

After graduating Queens College in 2003, Jeff made the big jump from Long Island to New York City . He now resides and performs nightly at clubs all over Manhattan . Jeff is an extremely dedicated worker and it shows on stage. His quick wit and sarcasm are his best assets. Jeff's unique look at his life separates him from other comics. “You think he is going to take a joke one way, and then completely surprises you with the punch line. Jeff has been a favorite performing for the troops for years.” Bob Hope
