John Caponera always knew he wanted to be in show business but in what dimension was undetermined until the summer of 1979 when John entered a talent show at a local bar in Chicago. After doing several impressions, he walked away with the $500 winner’s pot and a realization that he might have something to offer in the world of comedy.

Caponera’s instincts proved right and after two years working the Chicago comedy club circuit, John took his act on the road where he was immediately accepted . He has honed his act over a 17-year career performing to audiences all over the world. Caponera is considered a comic’s comic, a true professional offering a mix of material from topical to impressions to characterizations to stories and one liners.

You may recognize John as the star of his own sitcom called The Good Life or as the host of Comedy Central’s sport show Jocks and ESPN’s Talk II. Other credits include guest star appearances on ER, Love & War, Blossom, Tales From The Crypt, The Tonight Show, The Dennis Miller Show, L.A. Law, The John Laroquette Show and The Drew Carey Show.
