John Heffron

John Heffron

with Matt Bergman

Energetic and accessible, acclaimed standup John Heffron shares an array of relatable experiences from childhood through life as a married father. Heffron was the winner of the second season of NBC’s hit reality competition Last Comic Standing and has since performed on The Tonight Show, Chelsea Lately, The Late Late Show, HBO, FX, VH1, A&E, and CMT. Heffron remains one of a small handful of veteran performers to tape two separate Comedy Central specials and has an hour-long special, Middle Class Funny, on Netflix.

Heffron has guested on WTF with Marc Maron, The Joe Rogan Experience, and Ari Shaffir’s Skeptic Tank. He hosts several of his own podcasts including The State I'm In, Heffron and Reep Show, and most recently The Critical 48, a weekly podcast hosted by John and his wife Rie, about their working life and relationship. The idea is to discuss what it is like when two people have crazy work schedules and can only meet up each week for about 48 hours.

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, and Johnson & Johnson.

His four albums, Middle Class Funny DVD, and best-selling advice book I Come to You From the Future: Everything You’ll Need to Know Before You Know It are available on iTunes and Amazon.

Matt Bergman

Matt Bergman has been performing at clubs and colleges 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. As it turns out Bergman made the right decision quickly becoming one of the most sought out comedians working today. His ability to relate to any audience has allowed him to work with comics from Mike Birbiglia to Bruce Bruce and any audience in between. He’s a favorite at colleges across the country and was selected to be a part of the Inaugural Laughing Skull Festival in Atlanta.

On August 27th, 2014 Bergmans debut CD “A Little Bit Balder Now” was released on Itunes landing him at #15 on the comedy charts and in the Fall of 2014 he made his TV Debut on AXS TV Live at Gotham.
