About the Author:
jon-david is from L.A. area and now lives in Chicago. He’s an actual hairdresser at Joseph Michael’s Salon & Spa. He trained at Second City and did a few plays, parade commentary, tv cable specials for charities.
He wrote and sold one screenplay. Then he wrote the play version to help get the screenplay made into a movie, which never happened. The play was a sellout for six weeks though.
He’s done lots of work that he’s proud of such as rallies for civil rights and jumping off a building for charity.
Humor is good. It coats the cognitive palate so that the serious and scary can be digested more easily. That’s why most of his writing has a laugh or two in it, even if what he’s writing is serious.
