For the last twenty years, Jon Lovitz has been one of the best known comedians in the universe…well, according to his cats.
He was nominated for an Emmy his first two years on Saturday Night Live. He became known for many characters, including “Tommy Flanagan of Pathological Liars Anonymous” (“Yeah, that’s the ticket!”), “Master Thespian”, “Hannukuh Harry” and “the Devil”. He has appeared in over thirty movies, including “Big”, “A League of Their Own”, “The Wedding Singer”, “High School High”, “Small Time Crooks”, and “Rat Race”. He has worked with some of the best comedy directors, including Penny Marshall, Rob Reiner, Jerry Zucker, and the man who influenced Jon to be a comedian in the first place (when Jon was 13), Woddy Allen.
Jon has become well known for his distinctive voice. He was the lead voice of the character “Jay Sherman” in the acclaimed cult cartoon series, “The Critic” and has done voice overs for many other animated features (“American Tale: Fievel Goes West”, “Cats and Dogs”, “Eight Crazy Nights”, etc.) He has also worked on “The Simpsons” many times, including creating the character of Marge Simpson’s boyfriend, “Artie Ziff” (which sounds suspiciously like Jay Sherman).
He was the first famous guest star on the hit show “Friends” and guest starred on “Seinfeld” the same week. In 2005 he guest starred three times on the hit show “Las Vegas” in a recurring role. In 2006, he was offered (and accepted) a recurring role on the hit show “Two and a Half Men”, playing Charlie Sheen’s nemesis, Archie Baldwin.
Two years ago, he pursued his dream of becoming a stand-up comedian. He is one of few performers to start as an actor and then become a stand up and is now successfully headlining in nightclubs, theatres, and casinos across the country (a BIG THANK YOU TO DANA CARVEY!!!!)
One of the longest-running cast members in the 37-year history of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, versatile comedian Tim Meadows crafted some of the series’ most memorable characters during his 10 years on the popular late night show. Such characters included Leon Phelps, The Ladies’ Man and Lionel Osbourne, host of the fictional public affairs show, Perspectives, as well as uncanny impressions of OJ Simpson, Ike Turner and Sammy Davis Jr. Meadows also played school principal in the hit comedy MEAN GIRLS and recently co-starred with Adam Sandler and Chris Rock in the blockbuster comedy GROWN UPS.
Born in Highland Park, Mich., and raised in Detroit, Meadows studied television and radio broadcasting at Wayne State University before performing improvisational comedy at the Soup Kitchen Saloon. In 1985, Meadows relocated to Chicago, where he first joined Improv-Olympic, and then the legendary comedy troupe Second City.
Several years after appearing in a string of films based on Saturday Night Live sketches, including Coneheads and Wayne’s World 2, Meadows was offered his own chance at features. The 2000 release of Paramount’s The Ladies Man gave the eponymous hero Leon Phelps the opportunity to bring his Courvoisier-drinking romantic adviser to the big screen. In 2002, he joined the cast of the NBC sitcom Leap of Faith.
