John Heffron burst onto the comedic scene during the prime of his college heyday. Heffron’ s priorities became clear when he began to skip class to perform live stand up. His first gig was on the University of Michigan’ s campus at the Main Street Comedy Showcase. Since then, his comedy has evolved in a unique and creative fashion as he has grown... from a fun-loving college student to a bewildered husband. John’ s attraction to excitement and his personal vow to never perform physical labor have both inspired and motivated his successful career.
The endless list of credits that comprise his impressive resume highlight his many significant accomplishments. Having won the second season of NBC’ s Last Comic Standing, Heffron’ s popularity grew tremendously. John’ s amusing and extensive material has earned him two half hour specials and a one-hour special on the hit stand up show Comedy Central Presents. He has become a regular on numerous VH1 satire series including I love the 80s: 3D, I Love the 70s: Volume 2, and My Coolest Years: My First Time. In addition to being featured on Thom Filicia’ s Dress My Nest, Heffron has performed on CMT’ s Coming to the Stage, NBC’ s Late Friday, and Comedy Central’ s Premium Blend. He has made numerous appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and E’ s! Chelsea Lately and 101 Craziest TV Moments. John is no stranger to live audiences and has taken the stage at several prestigious comedy festivals including the Las Vegas Comedy Festival, the Just for Laughs festival in Montreal and the HBO Comedy Festival in Aspen. He even had the recent honor of being a celebrity roaster for KISS’ Gene Simmons on an episode of A& E’ s Gene Simmons: Family Jewels. John most recently shot a pilot presentation entitled: “ Stepjohn” in association with Second City Television and Paramount Television for CBS based on his stand-up and real life experiences.
From his early days as a DJ on Detroit’ s number one morning show, Danny Bonaduce and the Q Crew, to one of his current roles sharing the screen with Courtney Cox-Arquette on FX’ s Dirt, Heffron has hailed experience from many talented comedians. However, his endless innovation can easily be seen in his own comedy. John’ s first live stand up CD, Kid with a Cape, debuted over ten years ago. As a result of his constant touring, his routine has developed and grown and two more successful recordings, Good Kid, Bad Adult and The Better Half, have been released.
Many public and private corporations often call upon John for their company parties, fundraisers and conferences. Some of these companies include; Mercedes Benz, Citrix-a software company, Material Handling Industry of America, John Bailey Memorial Charity-an FBI event, Boys and Girls Club of Lancaster Fundraiser and many more. John co-hosted The Tony Rock Project on My Networks. Any stand up patron can relate to this comedian’ s diverse material that ranges from bar hopping adventures in his twenties to married life in his thirties. John Heffron’ s youthful personality and cynical wisdom result in a witty combination that nobody can resist.
