John Heffron burst onto the comedic scene during the prime of his college heyday. Although he graduated in his home state of Michigan, 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 and stepfather.
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 made numerous appearances on The Tonight Show, 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.
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, Cisco, Sonic, Morgan Stanley, American Heart Association, Boys and Girls Club of Lancaster Fundraiser, Can Manufacturers Industry, and many more.
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. He has managed to accomplish what most stand-up comedians can only dream.
John’s book, “I Come To You From The Future: Everything You’ll Need To Know Before You Know It,” is a best seller and can be found on Amazon.
