Six time Letterman veteran Jeff Caldwell is a prime example of what a comedian should be. He's smart, insightful, observational, opinionated, and clever. On top of that, he's clean (unless a brawl is about to break out).

We talk about:

  • His take on David Letterman retiring
  • Process for working in new material
  • His comedy "mentors"

and much more.

Whether at a comedy club or a corporate event, Jeff delivers smart, funny jokes on topics ranging from the daily news to the daily grind, subtly tailoring his material to fit any crowd. Along with his six Letterman sets, he has made three appearances on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and made his Comedy Central debut on Live at Gotham. Jeff has appeared with Keith Olbermann, Dennis Miller, on SiriusXM Radio, toured with Jon Stewart, and is a regular on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom radio show. 

A former civil and environmental engineer, he also blogs at the Huffington Post, commenting humorously on scientific topics affecting the world today.

This interview was recorded in between shows at Comedy Off Broadway in Lexington, KY over the Thanksgiving holidays.
