"Had a blast and loved every second of it. I'm totally honored to be able to make this next joke... FIRED FROM NEW YORK IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT!" -- @brookswheelan

With a season of SNL now under his belt, Largo has invited Brooks Wheelan to fall back on his successful stand-up career. Join Brooks and a few of his friends for a night of stories, stand-up, and...well...we'll see. All we know is that we're excited to be along for the ride!

ABOUT BROOKS WHEELAN
Brooks Wheelan does stand up comedy and is a chill guy. He was on SNL for a bit.
Jay Mohr
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 of 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 Anniston 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 both 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 is a regular guest host on the nationally syndicated Jim Rome Show as well as 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.

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.

Jay has guest starred in over 50 different television dramas and comedy series episodes, but his most recent turn on an episode of Dick Wolf's Law and Order: Criminal Intent as a Charlie Sheen type character ripped from the headlines, has
garnered him the most attention and respect. "He's really good" said Wolf, "it's kind of odd because he is known as a comic and this is a highly dramatic role that a lot of dramatic actors would have had a very hard time eschewing and he
does a great job." He added "…you know, it's like if you're playing tennis against a club champion, you're game should go up…the better the competition the better the game…and I think Jay really came to play."

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, "Lets just jump off a cliff together and build our wings on the way down!"

He is the star of his own award-winning 'mockumentary' series, The Jon Dore Television Show, documenting his hilarious and outrageous debates on life's challenges and changes, from weight loss to gender. He also served as co-creator, co-producer and writer on the series, proving he is just as comfortable behind the camera. The series ran for a successful two seasons on IFC and The Comedy Network.
