John Heffron (special taping)

with Matt Bergman

Energetic, accessible and wholesome, acclaimed standup John Heffron shares an array of relatable experiences from childhood through married life as a Gen X’er. 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 the NBC 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. He then branched into his role on 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 Show, The Late Late Show, HBO, FX, VH1, A&E, and CMT, Heffron has an hour special, Middle Class Funny, airing on Netflix, along with two Comedy Central specials and his independently produced special Notes From A Blender. In addition, John has recent appearances on the Netflix comedy special, Brad Paisley’s Comedy Rodeo and Circle Networks’ Stand-Up Nashville.

In the podcasting realm, Heffron has guested on WTF with Marc Maron, The Joe Rogan Experience, and Ari Shaffir’s Skeptic Tank. He currently hosts his own comedic podcast Heffron and Reep Show, where he and Jon Reep discuss the absurdity of life’s little moments.

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, Ernst & Young, just to name a few.

John’s five albums, along with Middle Class Funny (on DVD) and his best-selling advice book I Come to You From the Future: Everything You’ll Need to Know Before You Know It and The Holding Deal are currently available on iTunes and Amazon.

Matt Bergman

Matt Bergman has been honing his comedy craft since he was in college pursuing a degree in criminal justice. After graduating, he realized he was afraid of criminals and decided stand-up comedy was the way to go. It was a wise move. Bergman is easily relatable and versatile, a skillset that has opened the door to TV appearances on Gotham Comedy Live, Comedy Central Live and a Dry Bar Comedy Special. His recent album “Approbation Constante” was called “really tough to purchase” by his mother who still doesn’t quite understand iTunes.
