Simply one of America’s top comedians. Starting in 1980, John got his feet wet in television hosting Comedy Tonight which was the first syndicated TV show to feature nightclub comedy on television. He wrote and starred in a sitcom called Midtown North which aired on Comedy Central for two seasons. During this time, John continued to appear on many television shows including An Evening at the improv, Hollywood Squares, Comedy Central, Showtime and HBO.
