#37: JIM O'HEIR, Comedian, Emmy Award-Winning TV/Film Actor

The hilarious comedian and actor, Jim O'Heir, shares his creative journey on THE BRINK OF MIDNIGHT PODCAST. 

Comedian and actor, Jim O'Heir, has truly done it all in entertainment. He's graced theater stages as part of sketch comedy troupes with Second City and "White Noise", and with comedic and dramatic roles in countless plays. He's played memorable roles in all your favorite TV shows (Friends, 3rd Rock From the Sun, Malcom in the Middle, Startrek: Voyager, ER, Boston Legal, Brooklyn 99, Jimmy Kimmel Live, and Comedy Central shows), especially as beloved Jerry Gergich in NBC's Parks and Recreation. Jim's acting versatility also extends to film, including his latest movie, Steven Sodorberghs' "Logan Lucky". Jim's career is vast and deep, and although he will tell you he was "born into funny", he never intended to be a comedian or actor when he was getting started. Listen to hear how an unknown caller during Jim's time in small-market radio and feeling the effects of a first laugh changed the course of Jim's life forever! 

Jim O'Heir reminds us to laugh. Often! He also wisely reminds us that you never know who is listening or watching…when we step into our authentic selves, the next step toward realizing our purpose and dreams could be a simple phone call or conversation away!
