Biography

Jon Lovitz is a comedic actor widely known for his roles in TV, movies and for his stand-up comedy acts. As a popular cast member of the NBC sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live (1985 – 1990), Lovitz created memorable characters like “Tommy Flanagan, The Pathological Liar” (his catchphrase “Yeah – That’s the ticket!” won’t be forgotten soon!).  Lovitz’ voice can be found in many films, some of the most popular include “Artie Ziff” and “Jay Sherman” for Fox Television’s The Simpsons. Lovitz has starred in more than 40 films, including the big screen hits, The Benchwarmers and Southland Tales, and he had roles in The Producers, Big and Stepford Wives. His television credits include Hot In Cleveland, Two and a Half Men and Las Vegas. Between 2007 and 2014, he hosted the Jon Lovitz Comedy Network, a Los-Angeles-based digital entertainment network that was live-streamed on the web. At February’s SNL’s 40th anniversary event, Lovitz was the subject of an unexpected joke – he was included in the show’s “memoriam” montage. But Lovitz is very much alive, touring the US with his stand up comedy and improv routines, and appearing in Adam Sandler’s upcoming The Ridiculous Six, scheduled for December release.
