His new standup album Ginger Pain was released in March 2019 on 800 Pound Gorilla Records, so Jon shared with us his All Time list of the greatest redheads of all time in the entertainment biz.
#1 Little Orphan Annie. Because I once looked just like her. When i was a kid mom decided it would be a good idea for me and my brother to get our hair permed. (see photo above)
#2 Yosemite Sam. Because he had a short temper, a southern accent, and could make himself levitate by shooting his guns in the ground.
#3 Clifford The Big Red Dog. Because he is a bit of a mutt, like me. People think I’m like 100% Irish or Scottish, truth is I’m little bit of everything… that comes from Europe.
#4 Chewbacca. Because he’s a bad ass, a loyal friend, and when he talks not many people can understand him
#5 Red Skelton. Because he’s an iconic great physical comedian that the whole family can enjoy.
