Energetic and accessible, acclaimed standup John Heffron shares an array of relatable experiences from childhood through life as a married father. He’s learned a thing or two about relationships with family, friends, and even himself along his journeys, gaining an astute, uniquely honest perspective widely praised among his comedy peers. Audiences of all ages relate to his enthusiastic, hard-won wisdom, recognizing how often the path to maturity is marked by universal triumphs and failures. Rather than mock differences, the Detroit native aims to engage, connect, and enlighten.

Long before emerging victorious in 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. He soon found himself skipping night classes to pursue his passion and branching into FM radio, serving as Danny Bonaduce’s wingman on Detroit’s Number One morning show, Danny Bonaduce and the Q Crew.

Along with appearances on The Tonight ShowChelsea LatelyThe 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. John appears on the Netflix comedy special, Brad Paisley’s Comedy Rodeo, which debuted this summer.

In the podcasting realm, Heffron has guested on WTF with Marc MaronThe Joe Rogan Experience, and Ari Shaffir’s Skeptic Tank. He hosts several of his own podcasts 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, about their working life and relationship. The idea is to discuss what it is like when two people have crazy work schedules and can only meet up each week for about 48 hours.

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 including Mercedes, Frito Lay, Sonic, Johnson & Johnson, and Ernst & Young.

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.
