Jon Hancuff 'I Made a Wish' tape is out now! Stoked to be offering something new here at LPR. This is Let's Pretend Record's first comedy tape ever. Recorded locally at Bloomington's own Comedy Attic. And then I got this bio.
Jon started doing comedy in 1992 and in 1993 he won the Indiana University Campus Comedy Competition. In 1996, he moved to Seattle for a girl, gave up comedy, got dumped, and moved back to Indiana. It was 13 years before he went back on stage. During that time, the life experience he gained (marriage, parenthood, career, divorce, second marriage, lots of dining out) would serve as the catalyst for his second attempt at achieving standup comedy mediocrity.
He has appeared on Hoosier TV’s “Who’s Laughing Now?”, and won the 2011 Bob and Tom Comedy All Star Contest and the 2013 Bloomington Comedy Contest. He was selected as a featured performer for the Limestone, Arch City, and Let's Fest comedy festivals and Cincinnati's Brew Ha Ha. Jon has appeared on a variety of podcasts, including History Bluffs, Two Gregs One Podcast, Strangers on this Road, Stand By Your Band, and Who's Drinking What?
In addition, his between-marriage dating experiences (and the notes he kept about those experiences) were part of the inspiration for the independent film “All the Others Were Practice.”
“Soft-spoken, Jon's jokes sneak up and blindside you.”
— Mat Alano-Martin, co-creator and co-director of the Limestone and Arch City comedy festivals
"He works hard but makes writing his killer bits look so effortless on stage."
— Jared Thompson, owner of The Comedy Attic
