It felt like John Heffron was trying out new material. Even so it was good and quite entertaining. We laughed a lot as we could relate. The MC was awful. His jokes were bad and most were racial. DJ was ok.
We will go back to see John Heffron...continued

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 even on the University of Michigan’s campus at the Main Street 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 newlywed. 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: 3D, 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 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 Kilborn_, and 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 on an episode of A&E’s_ Gene Simmons: Family Jewels._
