A GOLDEN EPISODE : THE JOHN KERWIN SHOW HITS 50
So just who is John Kerwin, you ask? Well, if you’ve been paying attention to the stand-up comedy circuit over the last few years, you’d be familiar with the guy who’s shared the stage with the likes of Ray Romano, Jon Stewart, Rosie O’Donnell, and Denis Leary. From there, he became the perennial host of the Hollywood Improv, after which he went on to star in a number of his own talk show pilots with networks such as VH1, before deciding to go off on his own with The John Kerwin Show, now in its sixth year on the air.
Over the course of his career as a stand-up comedian and now talk show host, John has worked with a vast myriad of the veritable crème-de-la-crème of the comedy talk show world: everyone from Emmy Award-winning director Liz Plonka of Late Night with Conan O’Brien to legend Tony Desena, who was a long-time writer for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.
The award-winning The John Kerwin Show remains a “full service” talk show in which John interviews various celebrity guests, performs brief sketches, and brings on a host of other special features that are sometimes informative and always hilarious.
An ardent fan of Johnny Carson since he was a child, the television bug bit John during an auspicious run on Hollywood Squares in which his passion for being more than just another boob on the tube was finally calcified. Today, Angelenos all over the city can enjoy John Kerwin’s unique approach to interviews and modern comedy.
After years of being such an inimitable Los Angeles icon, it’s no wonder that Kerwin was able to celebrate his 50th episode with Kung Fu’s David Carradine (who you may also remember from the Kill Bill series, depending on how old you are) and J-Lo’s ex, actor/choreographer Chris Judd.
