Jon Dore is a comedian who will soon have the same grasp on the U.S. as he does on his homeland of Canada. In Canada he was a correspondent for Canadian Idol, had a Comedy Now! special and even had his own show The Jon Dore Television Show. Since reaching the shores of America he has appeared on Conan, How I Met Your Mother, and his very own Comedy Central Presents. He’s not from around here, guys, so let’s all be extra nice and welcoming to him!
