J.R. Havlan is a 7-time Emmy Award winning writer for The Daily Show with Jon Stewart who has worked at the show since the very first day it started in 1996. Before that J.R. wrote monologue jokes and did crowd warm-up for Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher. He was a contributing writer for "America (The Book)" and "Earth (The Book)", two Daily Show projects that were on the New York Times best seller list for an obscenely long time, and he also wrote for The Academy Awards in 2006 and 2008 where he quite mischievously touched the hem of Martin Scorsese's garment, but in a good way. As a stand-up comedian J.R. has performed all over the country and on numerous television shows most notably Late Night with Conan O'Brien and The Late Show with David Letterman. J.R. lives in Manhattan at an undisclosed address.
