Jay Mohr in Seeing Other People

Jay Mohr (born August 23, 1970) is an American actor and stand-up comedian.

He was born in Verona, New Jersey to Jeannie and John. He has two sisters, Julia and Virginia. He has one son, Jackson, from his six-year marriage to former model Nicole Chamberlain.

Mohr had a recurring role in the first season of "The Jeff Foxworthy Show" as Jeff Foxworthy's brother, Wayne.

In 1999, he was the star of his own television series, Action, in which he played a sleazy film producer, Peter Dragon. His intimidating boss is memorably characterized as a thinly-veiled Barry Diller.

He appeared on television as a cast member of Saturday Night Live and in movies such as Jerry Maguire and Small Soldiers. He was also the host, creator, and executive producer of the Last Comic Standing reality television program. He frequently appears on XM Satellite Radio's Opie and Anthony show. Mohr was also one of several guest hosts of The Jim Rome Show, but was asked by the network to refrain from guest-hosting again following a very controversial appearance in 2004. Mohr made vulgar references to the recently-deceased Ronald Reagan and toward Muhammad Ali's battle with Parkinson's Disease. Listeners and affiliates alike called Premiere to complain about Mohr's comments, and in turn, he was asked to refrain from accepting the offer to guest host the show in the future.

Mohr is occasionally accused of stealing material. His Comedy Central special is often cited, where he used a massage bit adapted from Robert Kelly, who also frequently appears on Opie and Anthony.

In 2004 he published the book Gasping For Airtime (ISBN 1401300065), chronicling his frustrating two seasons on Saturday Night Live, from 1993 to 1995.
