Jeff Koen is a comedian and actor who stars in the independent film Heavy Times. Released in 2011, the film has earned him fans all over the world, some of which write to his Facebook page and ask if they can stay at his house when they visit the United States. Also, he said, it appears that while he has fans in several countries, he doesn’t have several fans in any country. The website theman-cave.com called Heavy Times, “an original road trip flick unlike any that have come before it.” Another indie film site, Holmans, gave it four stars and called it “Wildly Funny.” Koen performs standup in and around the Boston area, and has toured New England theaters as the opening act for Juston McKinney. He’s also performed with the themed standup show How Men Think (Or Do They?) In 2011, he won the first O’Brien’s Comedy Contest in MA, beating out a field of 40 other professional comedians. In 2015 Koen won $10,000 on America’s Funniest Home Videos.
