Jeff Wayne has been known in the entertainment industry as “Big Daddy” ever since comedians Robin Williams and Billy Crystal introduced him by that nickname on HBO’s Comic Relief! The moniker was earned as a result of his critically acclaimed one-man show he wrote and starred in, “Big Daddy’s Barbeque.” He has toured the country with the show, performing it over 1,000 times…and counting.
A native of Kentucky, “Big Daddy” made his mark at the world famous Comedy
Store in Los Angeles, and has since appeared all over the world in concerts, clubs, casinos and cruise ships. Jeff has appeared on all the major stand-up comedy shows on television including HBO, Showtime, NBC, ABC, A&E, and even the CBC and BBC! He truly is a world-renowned funnyman.
Jeff “Big Daddy” Wayne is now one of the most listened to comedians on XM/Sirius radio, Raw Dog, Pandora’s Box, and Slacker. These are just some of the many outlets where one can hear cuts from his six nationally released CD’s that are regularly featured. He is now working on his seventh album, which will be entitled, “A Troubled Man for Troubled Times.”
Described as, “Having the face of Fred Flintstone, and attitude of iconic Al Bundy” Wayne has a distinct comedic brand. Wayne is the father of three, and makes his home base in what he calls that “big plastic taco out west, Los Angeles.” He collects showbiz memorabilia and plays a pretty good game of bad golf.
