Jeff Boggs is a producer, writer, and sometimes actor based in Los Angeles, California.
Jeff started his career with an internship on “Late Night with David Letterman” on NBC. The odds of getting an internship with Dave is slim so Jeff had an interesting way of getting “in the door”.
Once there he took full advantage of the position. Find out about his big break becoming the “Board Guy” leading to a job as the receptionist on the talent floor and then on to the writers floor receptionist. (Many start at the bottom and work their way up. Good life lesson young people.)
Writing proved to be one of Jeff’s greatest talents and the staff of Late Night took notice. Jeff’s first joke to make it on the show was part of the famous Dave’s Top Ten list. His stint with Dave saw him nominated for a Prime-time Emmy and trip to the Emmy’s! His next job was with The Tom Green Show on MTV. This required a move to LA and an ironic skit where Tom “marries” actress Drew Barrymore. However that fell through when Tom and Drew actually started dating.
Jeff went on to Nashville as developer and producer of “Nashville Star”. The show was inspired by American Idol but unlike Idol the contestants had to sing country music. Judges included Blake Shelton, Brett Michaels, Wynonna Judd and more. Jeff has some wonderful stores about his time with these powerful country music stars.
Jeff is currently working on a new project which he is being a bit secretive but we will keep you updated.
When not working Jeff has a love of Karaoke! Learn which songs are his favorites to perform and which song ALWAYS brings down the house. Enjoy the humor, wit and storytelling that comes so easily to Jeff on this weeks episode!
