On March 28, 1985, “The Groundlings” appeared on “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson” where Jon premiered his character “Tommy Flanagan of Pathological Liars Anonymous”. Following the introduction of this persona, Jon got an agent, and booked a movie, a series, a voice over for a cartoon, and “Saturday Night Live”.

John attended a taping of SNL during Jon Lovitz’ first year.

The title of John’s book is from something his dad used to say about showbiz that he attributed to Spencer Tracy: “It’s no job for a man.”

John calls his visits here the highlight of his career.
Thank you, John!! We love you!
