Jeff Dye

Host, “That Awkward Game Show”

Jeff Dye is a nationally touring comedian, actor, prankster, and host of Spike’s “That Awkward Game Show,” set to premiere Wednesday, October 12 at 10pm.

Coming off of the success of this summer’s hit comedy adventure series “Better Late Than Never” on NBC, Dye is set to host Spike’s hilarious new gameshow where parents and their adult children compete to win a large cash prize while learning some of the most ridiculously shocking truths about their next of kin.

Ridiculous and shocking could also describe Dye’s experience traveling across Asia helping Henry Winkler, William Shatner, Terry Bradshaw and George Foreman find the adventure of a lifetime on “Better Late Than Never.” Previously on NBC, Dye also starred in “I Can Do That,” a one-hour comedy variety series that put six of America’s brightest entertainers to the test as they competed to showcase their talents with breathtaking and unique acts — featuring skills they didn’t even know they had.

Raised in Seattle, this class clown started doing comedy at Giggles Comedy Club right out of high school and was first nationally recognized on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” where he finished third in the competition after only three years into his comedy career.

Since then, he has had two of his own shows on MTV (“Money From Strangers,” “Numbnuts”), his own “Comedy Central Presents” special and starred on numerous other TV projects, including “Girl Code” and “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”

Dye’s passion is bringing love and positivity through laughter to everyone he encounters.
