Comedians from the Daily Show Live
featuring Jordan Klepper & John Hodgman


Jordan Klepper:
Jordan Klepper joined The Daily Show as a correspondent after three years as a performer at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York City – tackling topics such as College Football Unions, Obamacare, Crimean invasions, and being naked with personal information written across his chest…all for the sake of comedy/news.  He has starred in several long-running shows at UCB and in sketches for the UCB Comedy Channel. He co-created and co-starred in the UCB Comedy-produced pilot presentation “Engaged,” which was featured at the New York Television Festival. Originally from Kalamazoo, Michigan, Klepper studied improv at Improv Olympic and Second City in Chicago. During his time at iO, he co-created and co-starred in the long running hit sketch show “Steve and Jordan, Respectively.” He has also worked as a writer and contributor to the Big Ten Network show “Friday Night Tailgate.” Together with his collaborator and wife, Laura Grey, “Klepper & Grey” created the short film “TMI” (2012), which was a featured short at Slamdance. Their latest short film, “Peepers,” premieres this month at SXSW.

John Hodgman:
As a contributor since 2006, John Hodgman has served as The Daily Show’s Resident Expert. He is currently The Daily Show’s Resident Deranged Millionaire. Since then, he has unexpectedly become a comedian and famous minor television personality, appearing as the “PC” in a series of television ads for Apple brand computers, and guest roles as “the person wearing glasses” in a variety of films and TV shows, including “Coraline,” “Community,” “Battlestar Galactica” (a show he once wrote about as a journalist). Additionally, he appeared as Jason Schwartzman’s nemesis, Louis Greene on all three seasons of HBO’s “Bored to Death.”  John Hodgman is a widely published author.  Hodgman has also worked as a cheesemonger, traffic counter, advice columnist, journalist and personal computer.
