Description: Comedian, actor, radio host and best selling author, Jay Mohr has been performing stand-up comedy since he was sixteen years old. After landing his dream job on Saturday Night Live, it appeared as though Jay had reached the height of comedic success, but his career did not end there. Jay has appeared in over 25 films such as Jerry Maguire opposite Tom Cruise, Picture Perfect with Jennifer Aniston, Pay it Forward and Are We There Yet?. He has also guest starred in over 50 different television dramas and comedy series episodes, including his groundbreaking series on CBS’ Gary Unmarried and a recent turn on an episode of Dick Wolf’s Law and Order: Criminal Intent.
But Jay’s credits are not limited only to the screen; Mohr wrote the best selling book, Gasping for Airtime, about his experience on SNL, and followed that success up with his hilarious book, No Wonder My Parents Drank, which describes in funny detail the pros and cons of parenthood. In the radio world, Jay is a regular guest host on the nationally syndicated Jim Rome Show as well as a regular contributor on the highest rated radio shows in the country, with multiple stints on Kevin and Bean and Opie and Anthony. Additionally, Mohr executive produced and hosted the ESPN series Mohr Sports an original weekly comedy/music/sports talk hour.
Comedy Central named Mohr one of the 100 greatest stand-up comics of all time. A simple bio doesn't do the stage show justice…as there are no notes, no two shows the same, and an act that never picks on the audience. Don’t miss Jay Mohr this June!
