Jay Mohr (JayMohr.com) is a multiple threat. Film, television, radio, writing, stand-up, and producing are all among the skill sets he has accomplished throughout a career that has spanned over a decade.
In the film world, he has co-starred in over 20 features, opposite some of the most powerful actors and actresses of our generation. In television, in the scripted arena, he starred in the critically acclaimed Fox series ‘Action’ and in the reality genre, he created, executive produced and hosted NBC’s smash hit ‘Last Comic Standing’. In radio, he often guest hosts Premiere Radio’s Jim Rome Show, the number one syndicated sports radio program in the country. In stand-up, he sells out theaters, clubs and colleges all over the country, earning standing ovations for his keen observations on the world and the unique groups of people who live in it.
The multi-talented Mohr first received audience notice with his dead-on impressions of Christopher Walken, Ricki Lake, Dick Vitale and Sean Penn on ‘Saturday Night Live’. Soon after that, he landed his breakthrough film role as a rival agent to Cruise in the blockbuster hit ‘Jerry Maguire’ and followed that up in a touching good-guy turn opposite Jennifer Aniston in ‘Picture Perfect’. Mohr published his first book, the highly praised ‘Gasping for Airtime’, a darkly funny, brutally honest memoir of his two years in the trenches as a writer and featured performer on ‘Saturday Night Live’. Additionally, Mohr is well known for his respected sports work as host of Fox’s ‘NFL This Morning’, narrator of the award winning ‘Beyond the Glory’, and ‘Mohr Sports’, a uniquely original weekly comedy/music/sports talk hour he executive produced and hosted for ESPN.
