Jeff’s comedy examines his particular life experiences, which include being the only white kid on his Little League team in Queens, having a Chinese wife who orders from take-out menus in fluent Mandarin, and raising a teen son who calls himself “Jewnese,” because he says it sounds better than “Chine-ish.”
