Jeff Scott of The World Famous Comedy Store is dead. Jeff was reported to have died today January 11, 2021, at the age of 60. His cause of death is not yet known as at the time of filing this report.
The House pianist & Archivist was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1961. When he was growing up parents indulged him in the things he liked most (puppets, magic tricks, marionette’s and monster movies). Using a few old clip-on lights and an old curtain, his Dad built me a little stage in our basement, for all his shows.
Jeff started out as a teacher when he got a teaching job for that very same kid’s theatre program. there he met his mentor, Michael Libassi (a local theater director).
He said: “I then did a series of musicals with him, as a performer and his dance captain. At the same time, while my friends had their first jobs working at some boring store, I started performing mime. Mime was very big, especially in advertising, back then.”
Jeff got an agent and started to book many TV and print commercials. Eventually, He was doing so much, The Cleveland Plain Dealer did a story on him calling him “Cleveland’s best-known mime” (haha).
In 1985, Jeff moved to Provincetown MA where he went to further his performing career.
He got another of playing ragtime piano for the tourists at a local hotel. One club had mic show, which he started performing regularly.
While working there he met a guy doing a two week run of his drag show and was hired to be his pianist.
From 1988-89, Jeff was hired as a mime at Sea World of Ohio. A local morning TV show always did a live summer broadcast from Sea World every year.
Adam Ray took to his official Facebook page to confirm that Jeff Scott has passed on.
In a lengthy post, he wrote – Speechless right now. I love ya Jeffy. I’m not sure what to say. Jeff Scott, the pianist at The Comedy Store for 25 years passed away. He would bring comics on and off stage. Lighting up the room before it started. Making the whole experience of doing a set in The Original Room, truly unlike any other. You were a staple of comedy. You were as brilliant on the keys as you were supportive of everyone’s creativity. We developed some fun musical aspects of my set during late-night spots in the OR. We meticulously broke down moments to improve, the magic we could capture, crazy crowds, too good to be true ones, and discovered that we had real special chemistry on stage together. We listened to each other well. smoked joints in the back patio. We did some road gigs. We talked about life and comedy, and you had stories for days. Always smiling, always grateful, always excited to be around what The World Famous Comedy Store provided. Things are different almost everywhere, but now The Comedy Store will officially never be the same. Rest easy bud. We love you.
