Way beyond any expectations

By Anneka F. on August 30, 2016

Up to this very moment I am being told by my wedding guest how awesome Eugene was. He is such a natural at what he does! He knew the right time to have high energy, Read the audience very well, and carried himself like her knew the bride and groom very well by his comments. He told the perfect amount of jokes, and most importantly he keep the night flowing. Prior to the wedding day Eugene made himself available to meet via Google hangout since the bride lived in Canada. He answered all our questions and did his homework thoroughly. Thanks Eugene, you helped make our wedding unforgettable!

Engaging, Natural & Hilarious

By Maclean J. on April 14, 2016

Booked Eugene to warm up employees before an event. With little information he really got the audience involved, asking everyone questions, including people, and most importantly, making everyone laugh. He was a natural at reading the crowd's vibes and reacting to them, like kept going with jokes that people were enjoying. Everyone loved it. He did a fantastic job. Highly recommended.

Amazingly Talented Performer

By Helen M. on March 18, 2016

Eugene T Barnes is fast becoming a NY/NJ icon. With his classic blazer and entertaining anecdotes about life around town, he will have you rolling on the floor in hysterics. His ability to laugh at himself and the world, without being mean or judgemental is a much needed quality in this day and age. He is true to himself and his followers. A comedian of the first class.

Eugene T. Barnes describes himself as “The youngest old man you’ll ever meet.” He’s been married for eight years to his college sweet heart, who’s lovely, supportive and really really smart! (She’s paying me to say that…I want my dollar.) He’s The Father of two beautiful little girls, who are for sale, just check out this website He’s probably worse at working an IPhone than your grandma’s mom and he’s only twenty…something.
He was born and raised in the tiny, chicken infested town of Lakeland, Fl. His comedy has been described as clean yet edgy, wholesome yet provocative, he’s like a magical taco…spicy and mild at the same time. He mixes high energy, physical comedy with all the sharp wit of a dull tooth pick. don’t believe me? Go see him live, he performs at clubs and colleges all over the country. I guarantee you’ll laugh your butt off, no really you’ll literally leave without your butt. (There’s a butt bucket at the door of all his shows, if you just so happen to make it through a show with your butt still intact, just drop it in the bucket.)
I know what you’re thinking…what does the “T” in Eugene T. Barnes stand for? Well, some say Tony, some say Tiger Balm, others say toilet water, the truth is…the world may never know. Let’s just enjoy him, while we have him.
