Winner of NBC's hit reality series "Last Comic Standing," comedian John Heffron has become the comic to watch and love. 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 Heffron burst onto the comedic scene during the prime of his college heyday. Although he did graduate in his home state of Michigan, Heffron’s priorities became clear when he began to skip night class to perform live stand up. His first gig was at the Main Street Comedy Showcase, now the Ann Arbor 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 married man.  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 comprises his impressive resume and highlights many significant accomplishments. He not only won the second season of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” but was also a finalist in the subsequent season. Heffron’s amusing and extensive material has earned him two separate half hour specials on the hit stand up show, “Comedy Central Presents” and he has become a regular on numerous VH1 satire series including “I love the 80s,” “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 "The Tony Rock Project," the TV series "Dirt," 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, “The Late Late Show” with Craig Kilbourne, 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 “Just for Laughs” festival in Montreal and the “HBO Comedy Festival” in Aspen. John even had the recent honor of being a celebrity roaster for KISS’ Gene Simmons and on an episode of A&E’s “Gene Simmons: Family Jewels.” He is also featured in the 2012 documentary movie "Alone Up There" a film about life as a standup comedian, and many more TV credits.
From his early days as Danny Bonaduce’s wingman on Detroit’s number one morning show, “Danny Bonaduce and the Q Crew,” to his role sharing the screen with Courtney Cox on FX’s “Dirt,” John’s endless innovation can easily be seen in his own comedy. His 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. John repeatedly accomplishes feats that many comedians dream to attain. His one hour “Comedy Central Special”  will be his 4th CD. As Heffron continues to pursue his ambitions and perform live comedy, his adoring crowds continue to multiply. Budd Friedman, founder of the Improv comedy clubs, stated that “John is a very good writer; he is so likeable,” and “all around appealing.” It is no doubt that Heffron is a well sought after performer for many Fortune 500 company events, including Mercedes, Frito Lay, and Johnson & Johnson. 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.
