Biography

The Detroit funnyman, who Phyllis Diller referred to as “the cute one,” has won a talent contract with NBC as well as other great opportunities. When asked about his experience on the show, John said “It’s a lot like high school… there are good and bad memories, in the end, I think I will only remember the good ones.”

John started his comedy career as a student at Eastern Michigan University, skipping night classes to perform stand-up comedy. He got his first gig as an emcee at the Main Street Comedy Showcase, located on the University of Michigan Campus. After making his way to graduation, he immediately began working in the field of his choice. He started touring the college circuit, performing at over 80 colleges a year. By that time he was already a seasoned comic with over four years of experience. The college audience related to his type of humor, which talked about his days in college, the retro music that he and his classmates listened to, and the pop rocks that he played with as a kid. This material made him a hit on college campuses where he recorded his first comedy CD, “Kid With A Cape.”

By the age of 25, John was a successful headlining comedian who decided to also put his degrees in communications and psychology to work by taking a job as radio sidekick to Danny Bonaduce on the highly rated Detroit morning show. He worked for 5 years before making his way back to Los Angeles. Since arriving in LA and making his home in Hollywood, he has made numerous television appearances including NBC’s “The Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno,” “The Late Late Show w/ Craig Kilborn,” his own half-hour.

“Comedy Central Presents” special, and many others. Last year he landed the lead role in the VH-1 sitcom “Smash.” The show was created by one of John’s biggest music idols, Gene Simmons from Kiss. In addition, he has also performed at the prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal as well as the HBO Comedy Festival in Aspen.
