Interview: I am joined by actor, writer, improviser, and producer Jon Glaser. Jon and I discussed crossing paths at summer camp many decades ago where he delivered a comedy bit that has stayed with me all my life. Jon has had an amazing career. We discuss his comedy roots that began at the University of Michigan. Jon talks about following his passion for improv and auditioning and becoming a part of Second City Chicago. Jon talks about how his SNL audition didn't lead him to SNL but after being seen by Robert Smigel landed him a writing gig on The Dana Carvey Show. We also discuss how Jon landed a dream job writing and performing for Conan. Many will recognize Jon from Parks and Recreation where he played reoccurring character Councilman Jeremy Jamm over the course of the show's run. We also discussed Jon's many shows including Delocated (the story of his family in witness protection that get their own reality show); how a joke on The Tonight Show led to the creation of his show, Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter (story of a neon-clad warrior with a talent for hunting werewolves) and his most recent show Jon Glaser Loves Gear (about his passion for gear). Get ready to get jammed with Jon Glaser.
Our Guest, Jon Glaser
