On the heels of a 2015 Canadian Comedy Awards nod for “Best Male Stand-Up” Jeff McEnery has finally released his long-awaited stand-up album Sunset Acres.
The album is a solid 40 minute set (Jeff is killing), where he delves into topics ranging from small town eccentrics, the pretensions of modern culture, and the pains of his own personal history.
The favourite son of Acton, Ontario, Jeff sits on a gilded throne built out of comedy awards and career highlights. He’s been in every Canadian comedy festival under the sun, he’s shared screen time with Franco, he’s even played a villainous rapist in Canadian classic film Dog Pound.
Jeff would be the first to tell you he’s a multi-pronged threat.
Ever hear of the Tim Sim’s award, Yuk-Yuks $25,000 Great Canadian Laugh Off, or the award for CCA Best Newcomer (2007)? Of course you have. Well guess what: all these and more sit on one of the many fireplace mantles in Jeff’s sprawling LA mansion.
We reached out to Jeff for a comment, but he probably didn’t have time to get back to us now that he splits his time between Toronto and LA like some spritely dandy. A Canadian with a green card to the USA? Oh, he must be good.
So instead of a comment, we’ve collected a bunch of Jeff’s best (most recent) tweets.

My Grandpa fought in World War 2 and I’ve already suffered two panic attacks shopping for groceries inside this crowded Trader Joe’s.

Exchanged I love you’s with a homeless man tonight. That still counts as networking, right?

Who needs a girlfriend when you can rewatch Survivor Series 1989 at 2:30am? Me. I do.

I’m watching The Secret at 1:24am because I found myself eating a Cheez Whiz sandwich at 1:05am and decided that everything needs to change.
