John started as a stand-up comic before turning to writing because he needed another way to express his depression. He wrote for Rodney Dangerfield, Johnny Carson, David Letterman, Billy Crystal, and Joe Piscopo before joining the staffs of “Saturday Night Live,” “The Tonight Show,” “Politically Incorrect. He produced the HBO’s ACE Award winning “Joe Piscopo Special” and produced what critics said was the best special ever done about stand-up comedy, Comedy Club Super Stars, on ABC. John wrote and directed his first feature film, The Last Request, starring T.R. Knight, Danny Aiello, Frankie Vincent, Vinnie Pastore, Gilbert Gottfried, Mario Cantone, and Joe Piscopo. Now, a Huffington Post contributor, John considers himself very sexy for a writer; he wears no underwear under his underwear.

Date of the Dead
by John DeBellis
For those who read Standup Guys: A Generation of Laughs, I thank you and warn you that the prose of Date of the Dead is entirely different. If you enjoy absurdist humor and you're not a zombie traditionalist then you should enjoy Date of the Dead.
