Jonny Loquasto is one of your good buddies who just happens to be a Comedian. His extremely relatable, witty & goofy punchlines stem from growing up in a lovely town called Northampton, Pennsylvania. After promptly getting cut from his highschool basketball team every single year, Jonny went on to attend the University of Sciences in Philadelphia, somehow MADE the team & played Division II College Basketball. By "played" that basically means he sat on the end of the bench, talked trash, and would occasionally get in the game once the team was winning or losing by 25 points. Nonetheless, Jonny achieved a Masters Degree in Physical Therapy but was convinced that he was still a funny fat kid and was determined to make a career entertaining others.
Since then, JL has become a regular at clubs and colleges across the country, along with having the honor of performing for our troops overseas multiple times with Armed Forces Entertainment. He's the host of the Wrestling Compadres Slamcast on Fox Sports and the Whistle Sports Epic Tour which can be seen all over the internet. The tour took him to college campuses across the country while visiting huge rivalry football games! He's also appeared nationally on "Comics Unleashed", "Gotham Comedy Live", and "Standup & Deliver", plus he hosted a daily live television show called "AXS Live" on AXS TV. Jonny has also been a recurring panelist on "Dr. Drew On Call" as well as hosting for Gameshow Network, TBS, The Hub, Yahoo, and Break.com. But some of his biggest passions (aside from Healthcare of course) are Professional Wrestling, Superheros, and the Paranormal, any of which he is thrilled to discuss at length. He's the host of DC Movie News on the Popcorn Talk Network, and a frequent co-host of Bizarre States on the Nerdist Network.
If you visit www.TheThumbWrestler.com, you'll see all about the film that Jonny wrote, directed, and starred in. At every school, he has a post-show Q & A, where students can ask any questions that might spring to mind. If you're looking for a comic who can relate to the struggle of college life and who sincerely wants every student to have a fantastic time, then Jonny Loquasto is your guy!
