Jeff "JJ STAR" Duran has been making his name for himself in stand up comedy and radio for over a decade. He has released three self-financed CD''s and one DVD. ''Still Kicking'' is his first cd to be available for a world-wide audience and not only includes his in your face stand up but also music from Basement Records backpack Rapper Penuckle! "Spitting Down The Drain" was originally played on Duran''s radio show back in 2003 when Penuckle was a struggling unsigned artist. Penuckle gave permission for this song to be included here because Duran was one of his first supporters on radio. Other notable contributing artists include Chirpin'' Second''s instrumental title cut and similar "Reloaded" which includes sound bits from JJ''s comedy act! There is also some great voices provided by Jason Blades (One Of Jeff''s long-time friends and collaborators). Blades is not only the man behind Chirpin'' Second but he lends his character voices to track 14-as a BBC announcer and Track 16-as Sloucho (a variation on the legendary Groucho Marx but rawer!) Duran''s stand up comedy cuts were recorded in October 2005 at the World Famous Comedy Store in Hollywood, CA! The intimate late night audience of the Comedy Store Main Room was receptive to Jeff''s raw and sometimes irreverent style of stand up!! If you happen to be familar with the original "JJ Star" underground cd''s-then you probably already know and love his outrageous song parodies and characters like Evis T! Evis is the illigitamate son of an Elvis Impersonator''s Daddy. The first 100 copies come with a limited edition DVD of Duran also recorded at the Comedy Store but in February 2006! Never one demensional and never boring-JJ is finally ready to break out of the underground to national recognition!! He''s Still Kickin'' Ass and probably is too lazy to take names!! Buy this comedic gem today!
JEFF "JJ STAR" DURAN 7510 SUNSET BLVD. ..174 HOLLYWOOD, CA. 90046 When you site Andrew Dice Clay and Sam Kinison as your comedic idols, it''s bound to get one wondering about living a comedian''s life…. Jeff Duran grew up in Arcadia, CA where he took a friend''s dare and performed a comedy routine at a local club. His quick-fire impersonations and improvisations made him a hit. Catching the stand-up comedy bug, Jeff began performing around Los Angeles where his in-your-face humor quickly earned him the reputation as heir to such comedians as you guessed it Dice and the late Sam Kinison. Darcy Berry of the L.A. Times called Jeff “A Sam Kinsion-Like performer” because of his in your face style. Over time Duran has developed an energy-driven show with sidesplitting insights on everything from Christian rappers to his battle with substance abuse. His credits include appearing on the ®Late Late Show and opening for the likes of Pauly Shore, Dave Attell, Mike Epps, Carlos Mencia and Pablo Francisco. Duran has performed at the Comedy Store, Improv, Laugh Factory and Ice House Comedy Clubs as “JJ Star”. Duran’s act has also been the subject of many magazine and newspaper articles. Jeff plans to follow in the footsteps of his comedic idols successfully transcending from the comic stages to the screen, but hopefully with more longevity. Duran is actually no stranger to the screen. Before comedy, he was something of a child actor appearing in the award winning ABC series ®Wonder Years". Although the role was uncredited it lead to several commercials and videos including a video directed by Penelope Sheeris called "No More Mr. Nice Guy". Jeff is also an accomplished radio personality. Since the 90’s, Jeff has held down top rated shows on several so-cal radio stations including KLSX 97.1 and KCXX 1039. Duran also had a brief stint as morning man at KKXX 93.1 Bakersfield where he showcased his talent for interviews and thought provoking topics. Radio gigs have lead to opening for more high profiled artists like Ted Nugent, Adema, Seether, Great White, Kottonmouth Kings, Crazytown bringing Duran’s act from comedy club stages into national coliseum! Radio Legend Frazier Smith says “Duran is one of the most original radio talents on the scene today.” While many would expect Duran to bring the in your face style of his comedy act to the airwaves-his delivery is surprisingly restrained. A self confessed music junkie, Jeff is a very knowledgeable rock jock who lives and loves the music he plays. You can catch Duran’s radio show on X1039 in Riverside, CA. On the Comedy front FTW/MK ULTRA Entertainment will release a new DVD that features Jeff performing at the legendary Comedy Store main room as well as interviews and behind the scene footage. Duran hopes this may lead to more television and perhaps film roles. Jeff has also just released a new cd called ''Still Kickin''''-it includes stand up comedy along with hilarious song parodies and comedy bits!
