Jeff Onore is a playwright, performer and songwriter.

As an actor in his solo show, "What Happened to Jeff", Jeff Onore enjoyed top honors at the New England Fringe Festival at the Boston Center for the Arts in 2008.

"Underlying Onore's material is a pervasive and profound sense of urban loneliness" ... "startling and imaginative black humour"
- Elissa Barnard, Chronicle Herald

"A captivating performance that goes beyond the sardonic wit of the comedian" ... "he may be deranged, but he is certainly entertaining." ... "punch, grit, cajones"
- Amanda Campbell, Twisitheater

Jeff's CD of original songs also titled “What Happened to Jeff,” has been played on 125 radio stations and reviewed coast to coast. Click here for clips.

"Bringing to mind masters such as Randy Newman and Elvis Costello... Jeff Onore is in their league... Raises the bar for singer songwriters of the sinister/humorous variety."
- Barney Quick, Indie-Com to more quotes

Jeff writes poetry and non-fiction, which has been published in Pearl Magazine, The Iconoclast, Maelstrom, Nerve Cowboy, Poetry Motel and others. His non-fiction work has been published in the UK's Guardian, and The New York Post.
