Jeff Dye is an extremely talented comedian/actor/host who has hosted 2 series for MTV—NUMBNUTS and their newest series, MONEY FROM STRANGERS.
Jeff Dye stars in NBC’s eclectic new comedy adventure series “Better Late Than Never.” This exciting project will follow the travels of Henry Winkler, William Shatner, Terry Bradshaw and George Foreman as Jeff helps them find the adventure of a lifetime.
Most recently, Dye starred in NBC’s “I Can Do That.” The one hour comedy variety series put six of America’s brightest entertainers to the test as they competed to showcase their talents with breathtaking and unique acts – featuring skills they didn’t even know they had. Dye is a nationally touring comedian, actor, host, prankster and Bigfoot enthusiast. Raised in Seattle, this class clown started doing comedy at Giggles Comedy Club right out of high school and was first nationally recognized on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” where he finished third after only three years into his comedy career. Since then, he has had two of his own shows on MTV (“Money From Strangers,” “Numbnuts”), his own “Comedy Central Presents” special and stared on numerous other TV projects, including “Girl Code” and “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.” Dye’s passion is bringing love and positivity through laughter to everyone he encounters.
As a kid, I always liked comedy and would listen to albums by George Carlin, Bob Newhart, Bill Cosby, and Lenny Bruce. Despite my enjoyment of these great talents, I decided to pursue an unfunny career and left Los Angeles for San Francisco State College to be a lawyer. When that did not hold my attention, I switched majors and ended up getting a Bachelor of. Art Degree in Communications.
