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.
John started his comedy career as a student at Eastern Michigan University, skipping night classes to perform stand-up comedy. He got his first gig as an emcee at the Main Street Comedy Showcase, located on the University of Michigan Campus. After making his way to graduation, he immediately began working in the field of his choice. He started touring the college circuit, performing at over 80 colleges a year. By that time, he was already a seasoned comic with over four years of experience. The college audience related to his type of humor, the retro music that he and his classmates listened to, and the pop rocks that he played with as a kid. This material made him a hit on college campus where he recorded his first comedy CD, “Kid with a Cape.”
