Past Projects





Up to a point a man's life is shaped by environment, heredity, and the movements and changes in the world around him. Then there comes a time when it lies within his grasp to shape the clay of his life into the sort of thing he wishes to be. Only the weak blame parents, their race, their times, lack of good fortune, or the quirks of fate. Everyone has it within his power to say, 'This I am today; that I will be tomorrow.' The wish, however, must be implemented by deed.

Louis L'Amour

Idiosyncratic Onus



The following are reviews of past stage performances of Loose Ends and Boys' Life

“[Director Jack] Stehlin is blessed to have actor JEFF KONGS, as Paul, carrying this show from both a dramaturgical as well as performance point of view. Kongs displays a welcome honesty in his scene work, while his skill in relaying Weller’s improvisatory-like monologues is riveting. Whether detailing Paul’s veil-lifting Peace Corps experiences or his second-act indictment of Susan’s marriage-destroying selfishness, his performance is always “in the moment.”

-- Arts in L.A.

“Michael Weller has a knack for writing about specific time periods. Here the spotlight is on the tenuous hangover days of the 70s. ….Solid performances by the “Far Out” cast “.

– Lovel Estell III, Stage Raw

“JEFF KONGS as Paul Baumer, what can I say? You just wanna cry for the guy (and considering that he wasn’t such a nice dude in the last play in which you saw him, well, there ya go—seriously, it’s called acting, my friends–ACTING!!!) If you enjoy a little 70s nostalgia with your wine and water, to speak nothing of a cavalcade of colorful characters, this dramatic romp might provide just the occupation you seek!”

– Jennifer Hugas, The LA Beat

“Jeff Kongs plays Jack, the king womanizer — and, ironically, the sole married man among these post-collegiate sad sacks, whose raw need — and scathing contempt — for women is both telling and terrifying.”

--L.A. Times

“Kongs perfectly modulates Jack’s aggression and restraint, never overplaying his self-loathing but leaving no doubt as to its presence.”

--Stage Raw

He has developed two production companies, 30films and CARNIVORE, LLC, and continues to be heavily involved in making his own productions. He is a proud member of the New American Theatre Company and studies under the incredibly beneficial teachings of Jack Stehlin and Alfred Molina.
