Jeff Dandurand (born February 13, 1978), more commonly known as Jeff Duran, is a Los Angeles based radio personality and comedian. Jeff was born in Arcadia, California and attended the same high school as Stevie Nicks and Michael Anthony of Van Halen. Duran was something of a child actor appearing on The Wonder Years and in videos by the heavy metal band Megadeth by the age of 15. Duran is best known as a radio personality on KLSX and KCXX just outside Los Angeles. (As of March 2007, Duran worked as a disc jockey on two California alternative rock stations; KCXX in San Bernardino and KKZQ in Palmdale.)Duran began his stand up career as way of thumbing his nose at the political correctness of the early 1990''s. Duran''s early stand up consisted of raw Andrew Dice Clay style jokes and X-rated song parodies ala Blowfly. In the early 90''s Duran developed a different persona on stage called "JJ Star", which was created so audiences could differentiate. In a 1997 Los Angeles Times article, the writer Darcy Barey compared Duran to the late Sam Kinison because of his brash style and rocker appearance. Duran credits Sam Kinison and Andrew Dice Clay as his main reasons for doing stand up. Still too raw for mainstream clubs, Duran had to perform frequently at bars and before bands in this early phase of his career.
Not only has Duran''s stand up material advanced over the years, so has his career. Highlights have included opening for many national headliners like Carlos Mencia, Pauly Shore and Dave Attell-and appearing on numerous television shows including the Late Late Show. Duran''s presence on radio has lead to opening for such artists as Ted Nugent, Kottonmouth Kings, Great White, Seether, Adema, Legs Diamond and Crazytown literally in front of thousands at major clubs and even stadiums! Duran became one of the few comedians to sell out rock venues like Whiskey and the now defunct Coconut Teaszer In Hollywood. Like so many artists before him Duran''s once excessive lifestyle almost derailed his career entirely in the early 2000''s. As stated on this new CD/DVD ''Defects Of Character''-Duran quit using alcohol/drugs because he felt it would be "embarrassing" to die before people knew who he is. Even though amusing, Duran has put his demons behind him and has been getting back on track life and career wise. In 2006, Duran released the CD/DVD ''Still Kicking''-which resulted in numerous television and radio appearances including XM Satellite Radio''s ''National Lampoon Radio''. Duran was also featured in a documentary about Green Day called Under Review 1995-2000. Jeff is featured on the DVD with many other notable music industry figures.
''Defects Of Character'' DVD was recorded at the The Comedy Store on the ''Still Kicking'' tour. The CD portion is a collection of new and best of material. It uses last year''s "National Lampoon" interview w/ Todd Baker to shed light on Duran''s "Defects"-told through his stand up, character voices, songs and from the man himself. Hear Duran like you never could on terrestrial radio-honest, raw and most of all funny!! The CD also features brand new X-rated song parodies and an unreleased song by shock rock kings Rebel Rebel!!
