In our current era of no-holds-barred comedy, finding quality entertainers and a list of clean comedians for mixed audiences can be a challenge.

For organizers of a public, corporate, charity, or church events seeking comedy acts with a broad appeal, look no further than this fantastic list of clean comedians who are sure to blow you away.
A Short List of Clean Comedians
Jeff Allen is a tried and true veteran of the comedy scene, whose act revolves around the absurd humor of everyday life with his wife and teenagers. Allen is a long-time supporter of humanitarian causes and has served as a World Vision Artist and supporter of Gestures of Generosity. Jeff Allen’s crowd-pleasing brand of real-world humor hits home.
Hide your mother-in-law before the show, because Carlos Oscar’s family set will have the relatives rolling in the aisles. This high-energy Puerto Rican-American comic is a wizard of impressions and finds hilarity in the everyday absurdities. Featured on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” Comedy Central, and HBO, this clean comic has shown he does not have to rely on the lewd and crude to get a laugh.
With a Nashville twang and guitar to boot, Rik Roberts is just about as relatable as a Southern boy can be. However, this good old boy has over twenty years of comedy experience under his belt buckle, and seamlessly engages audiences in a blend of stand-up and musical comedy. Oh, and for a small fee, he’ll also show up as Barney Fife!
Ron McGehee is a self-confessed unlikely mix of “rice and potatoes”: this Korean-Irish comedian likes to poke fun (lovingly!) at the distinctly different cultures of his two parents. McGehee cracks up viewers with his take on cultural stereotypes and self-effacing mockery. However, don’t take our word for it: check out this funnyman’s features from Comedy Central, NBC, and Last Comic Standing.
Comedian Michael Joiner is a triple-threat: he works consistently as an actor, writer, and comic. Joiner possesses a casual, laid-back sense of humor peppered with wicked punchlines that take audiences off guard. However, don’t think you can just sit back unscathed- Joiner is infamous for his quick cutting improvisation and audience participation that will keep everybody on their toes.
While every performer on this list of clean comedians has his unique flavor, they all uphold a high standard for comedy that doesn’t rely on the obscene to get a laugh. Each of these funnymen brings their twist to the stage, serving up sets with a broad appeal for any event or audience. So bring your kids, your boss, or even your grandmother (if she is into that): there is something for everyone on this list of clean comedians.
