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!"
