John Caponera always knew he wanted to be in show business but in what dimension was undetermined until the summer of 1979, when Caponera 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, he 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 Caponera as the star of his own sitcom,“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.”
