Comedian, actor, radio host and best selling author, Jay Mohr has been performing stand-up comedy since he was sixteen years old. With a career that has spanned over three decades, Jay has become an artist that is very difficult to define. Never wanting to rest on his accomplishments, Jay has always pushed himself to be more than just a comic.


After landing his dream job on Saturday Night Live, it appeared as though Jay had reached the height of comedic success. Little did he know that just three years later, he would be cast opposite Tom Cruise in Jerry Maguire and that same year, co-star with Jennifer Aniston in Picture Perfect. Now the world that knew “comedian Jay” was quickly introduced to the “actor Jay.” Never wanting to choose one career over the other, Mohr has brilliantly balanced both acting and stand-up comedy as roommates in his brain.


Additionally, he has continuously added other genres to his journey and wrote the best-selling book Gasping for Airtime about his time on SNL and his battle with panic attacks throughout his tenure on the show. To this day, the book remains a must read for fans of the show, followers of Jay, as well as people who suffer from social anxiety, depression and panic disorders.


On a much lighter note, Jay's second book was the hilarious, No Wonder My Parents Drank, which describes in painful and beautifully funny detail the pros and cons of parenthood, which was subsequently optioned by ABC for development of a sitcom based on its content.


In the radio world, Jay Mohr Sports on FOX Sports Radio has a 150 affiliates all over the nation.   He is also a regular contributor on the highest-rated radio shows in the country, with multiple stints on Kevin and Bean and Opie and Anthony… just to name a few.


Staying on the edge of technology as a way to reach out to his fans, Jay’s weekly podcast Mohr Stories, where he interviews an eclectic list of guests from Charlie Sheen and Rufus Wainwright to Damien Echols (of the West Memphis Three infamy), has over a million listeners each month.


Jay Mohr is the rarest of entertainers. After 25 films and starring in his own groundbreaking series produced by Joel Silver and the late Ted Demme (Action) he recently starred in the CBS scripted comedy Gary Unmarried, which was critically acclaimed and was on for two seasons.


Throughout his journey, Jay still loves performing stand-up comedy - it's in his blood, his bones and his DNA. Anyone that has ever seen one of his concerts will be quick to tell you that there is no one better. Comedy Central agrees, having 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. These are the three tenets that Jay believes makes great live comedy, and the foundation is laid when Jay often tells his audiences, "Let’s just jump off a cliff together and build our wings on the way down!"
