Not many produce more than a few albums over the entire course of a comedy career. Check out his offerings at iTunes or Amazon, however, and you’ll note that John Heffron, still in his 30s, already has a whopping three releases to his name. What’s more, each is high-energy, instantly relatable and endearingly befuddled, and contains zero filler. There’s a reason he won the second season of Last Comic Standing and that Comedy Central and Leno have come a-calling; one having far less to do with simply being youthful and driven (he was a seasoned pro straight out of college) and more to do with his evolution into something resembling an amateur relationship psychologist. Even if he doesn’t have all the answers, it’s just as entertaining watching him make the journey.
