Energetic and accessible, acclaimed standup John Heffron shares an array of relatable experiences from childhood through life as a married father. Rather than mock differences, the Detroit native aims to engage, connect, and enlighten. Long before winning the second season of NBC’s hit reality competition Last Comic Standing, Heffron first took the stage at the University of Michigan campus’s Main Street Comedy Showcase, before branching into FM radio as Danny Bonaduce’s wingman on Detroit’s Number One morning show, Danny Bonaduce and the Q Crew.
Along with appearances on The Tonight Show, Chelsea Lately, The Late Late Show, HBO, FX, VH1, A&E, and CMT, Heffron remains one of a small handful of veteran performers to tape two separate Comedy Central specials and has an hour special, Middle Class Funny on Netflix. He will also be appearing on the Netflix comedy special, Brad Paisley’s Comedy Rodeo, which debuts on August 15th. Heffron has guested on podcasts such as WTF with Marc Maron, The Joe Rogan Experience, and Ari Shaffir’s Skeptic Tank. He hosts several of his own, including The State I'm In, Heffron and Reep Show, and most recently The Critical 48, a weekly podcast hosted by John and his wife Rie.
In addition to headlining clubs and appearing at festivals around the world, Heffron remains in high demand as a performer at events for numerous Fortune 500 companies. His four albums, Middle Class Funny DVD, and best-selling advice book I Come to You From the Future: Everything You’ll Need to Know Before You Know It are available on iTunes and Amazon.
