    Artie's special airs in the coveted midnight time slot, so I'll have to miss John's act.

    I wish John well. I always liked him on Howards show. Busting on Gary, the Cabbie fight, asking dumb questions to stars, etc.

    Bio
    After 15 seasons on The Howard Stern Radio Show (1998), John Melendez is in his fourth season on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992). Besides being the show’s nightly announcer, Melendez regularly appears in the show’s comedy sketches and does correspondent pieces.

    Melendez, who began with The Howard Stern Radio Show (1998) as an intern in college, landed on the air almost immediately. During his 15 seasons with Stern, Melendez gained national acclaim and recognition as “Stuttering John”, with his daring and irreverent interview style and prominent personality. In addition to interviewing countless celebrities on the radio, Melendez was simultaneously hired as a field reporter for the nationally syndicated Howard Stern (1994) Television Show, where he worked for two seasons as an interviewer and in sketch pieces for the show’s man-on-the-street segments. He continued his television work for Howard Stern on the highly rated E! television show.

    Aside from his notable work on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992) and with Howard Stern, Melendez’s feature film credits include Private Parts (1997), Dude, Where’s My Car? (2000), Meet Wally Sparks (1997), Airheads (1994) and Osmosis Jones (2001). On television, he is credited with appearances on the reality series, I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! (2003) and Fear Factor: Celebrity Fear Factor (2006), had guest-starring roles on Wings (1990) and Baywatch Nights (1995) and was the voice of “Bob” in the animated series, Tripping the Rift (2004), on the Sci-Fi channel. Most recently, Melendez stars in the full-length feature, One, Two, Many (2008), which he also wrote and executive-produced. Melendez will soon begin filming the comedy, _”Will Run”, which he also wrote and will executive produce, as well as make his directorial debut.

    The guy made no radio money for the first 5-7 years he was the show.
    Howard would berate and minimize his contributions to the show then claim to go to bat for him against the man
    Howard was the man....BTW

    John is famous for reading other people's questions and really nothing more.

    Everything he did since leaving THSS was nowhere near funny.
    His standup I heard was awful in LA

    If Ja,ja,ja,Jonh needs to make money he should seriously consider doing a tell all! You know he has seen and heard more than the wig one ever wanted.

    John filled lots of airtime.
    HE was the face of the Stern show before Stern got his E show.
    Celebrities encountered John before they ever heard of Stern.
    That made Howard angry when a big guest came in and chatted it up with John in the hall before walking into the studio and seeing the wigged monster for the first time.
