Jeff Grace is a comedian, actor and filmmaker who got his start in comedy at Second City and ImprovOlympic in Chicago. He moved to Los Angeles to write political rants for IFC's The Henry Rollins Show. From there, he went on to write and act in MTV’s That Movie Show and Comedy Central’s Atom TV and has written several viral videos including the Youtube sensation Google Maps, which generated six million views and was featured on CNN.
Making the transition from web shorts to feature films, Jeff produced and co-starred in two comedy feature films. The Scenesters won the 2010 Slamdance “Rosebud Award” and was recently picked up by Showtime. It’s A Disaster -- which also stars David Cross, Julia Stiles and America Ferrera -- will world premiere at the Los Angeles Film Festival to rave reviews this June ("Disaster is one of the funniest films of recent vintage. The low-budget production looks good on the big screen, and in the hands of the right distributor could realize its strong potential as a theatrical release." said the Hollywood Reporter.) Jeff is currently producing the indie comedy Mother’s Day starring Susan Sarandon and Christina Ricci.
As a stand-up comedian, Jeff was a top ten finalist in "L.A.'s Funniest Comedian" competition, and has performed with such comedians as Louie C.K., Maria Bamford, David Foley, Seth Rogan and Jonah Hill. As an actor you may have recently seen Jeff on No Ordinary Family, iCarly and opposite Jon Hamm on the Emmy Award-winning Mad Men. In between acting gigs, Jeff keeps busy writing and directing projects for Vacationeer Productions and is currently working on directing his first feature film in 2013.
