What is the Comedy Café?

The Tuscaloosa Comedy Café is an annual fund-raising event that helps fund the on-going ministry of Tuscaloosa Youth For Christ and its ministry satellites. This unique event combines coffee and delicious desserts with family-friendly comedy and a creative program that highlights young people and tells the YFC story.

In its fifth year, the Tuscaloosa Comedy Café has grown to over 400 adult guests.

Who is Youth For Christ?

Youth For Christ is an international Christian youth outreach aimed at sharing the Good News Jesus Christ with high school students who are not yet part of a local church. YFC reaches youth in over 100 countries and ministers to over 2,000 students in Tuscaloosa County. YFC's primary ministries in Tuscaloosa are Campus Life, Teen Moms and CORE. To learn more contact Tuscaloosa Youth For Christ at 205-752-3361.

What does it cost?

Seats are $50 each. In many instances, table hosts have covered the cost for their guests to attend. All funds raised will benefit the youth of Tuscaloosa through the work of YFC.

What can I expect?

It will be a night you will never forget. YFC students and staff will share great stories of what God is doing in and through them. Comedian Taylor Mason will bring his unique blend of humor and guests will be challenged to join us in delivering the hope of Christ to thousands of area youth. Our hope is you will join us a financial partner in this mission.

How long does it last?

Doors open at 6:30 and the program will conclude by 8:30.

Jeff Allen

The World’s Funniest, Most Inspiring Comedian Jeff Allen combines clean, hilarious humor with inspiration like no other comedian working today. He performs sidesplitting standup and, when requested, riveting testimony. As such, he is a favorite at outreach events where church members can freely invite their unchurched friends, knowing that they’ll be sharing world‐class entertainment.

For three decades, Jeff Allen has been performing at churches, on television and radio, for fundraisers and at corporate functions all across the country. Jeff Allen is the best at what he does – making people laugh as hard as humanly possible.

His Happy Wife, Happy Life® message of a marriage gone wrong and redeemed has given laughter and encouragement to millions of people. Jeff’s comedy drives home the humor in everyday family life and the joy derived from a healthy marriage.

Background

Jeff Allen is regarded as one of the premium clean comedians working today. In three decades of performing, he has worked at over 1000 churches, fundraisers and other venues.  

Most of his humor centers on marriage and living with teenagers – material to which everyone can relate.  

Watch his videos on YouTube and youʹll see the difference.

The humor he packs into his performance comes rapid‐fire, and doesnʹt stop until the end. Whether itʹs a set of 15, 30, 60, 90 or 120 minutes, Jeff Allen will make you ache with laughter.

Jeff Allen has been seen on every cable comedy show in the U.S. including Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and VH1’s Standup Spotlight.  

His one‐hour special, Happy Wife, Happy Life aired on the Odyssey Channel and Family Net.  

He’s been featured on the Grand Ole Opry, the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen and the Montreal Just for Laughs International Comedy Festival ‐ the most prestigious comedy venues in the world.  

He also headlined his own national comedy tour, Jeff Allen & Friends: Funny People of Faith.    

Itʹs the kiss of death to build up a comedian, because there is always the chance that it will make your expectations higher than he is able to deliver. Thatʹs not really a possibility here. Without fail, Jeff Allen knocks it out of the park every time ‐ and not one nasty word.
‐ Gary Chapman, Samʹs Place
