Jon is the host and emcee of the Highlands Comedy Show and the Strange Grounds Comedy Open Mic on South Broadway in Denver. For the past few years Jon has been honing in on his hosting skills while accumulating material for up to 30 minutes from PG to R Rated Material.
You can see Jon all around the Denver area at comedy open mics where he practices new and reworked material. He is constantly writing to stay fresh with stories of the day's events regardless of the day.
Jon has had the pleasure to compete in the Comedy Works New Faces contest and is on the amateur circuit performing at both Comedy Works locations in Denver. Jon has performed at the Denver Improv and Loonies Comedy Corner as well as some clubs that unfortunately did not stand the test of time including Wits End Comedy Club and The Down Under Comedy Club (R.I.P.). Jon has told jokes in his home town Baltimore, MD, a good place to be from as well as a source of good material.
Jon welcomes the chance to get on stage any time because comedy makes his life more balanced. Many people complain and critique, and voice opinions and it is much better to entertain a crowd than annoy your fiends or loved ones with your self therapy. Jon is most satisfied when on a microphone wrangling together and audience to laugh at the comedy all arounds us.
Other Notable Facts:
Jon has had many different jobs but none as satisfying as being a Comedian. The first job as a kid was at his fathers, a Buick Dealer in Baltimore and a very conservative fellow. Jon is actually a lot like his father and the main reason he never became a car salesman. He also worked a bit of retail and eventually became a marketing professional after graduating from the University of Maryland in the mid 90's.
Becoming a comedian was always a dream and did not become a reality until his divorce, often a cattiest to a comedy career. Becoming a father of two, losing a wife to disagreements, and a fairly unsuccessful career world will help anyone accumulate material and it's a comics job to use experience to make others laugh. Jon has gone through the standard ringer to create what is now a flourishing comedy career.
