Until recently, stand-up comedian John Heffron
's career was effortless. "Now I have to work
at it," he laughs. Since winning the second season of NBC's Last Comic Standing
, the Detroit native has breezed through gig after gig, capitalizing on his reality-TV title. Then came the quickly assembled third season of the show which is sorta like American Idol
, but intentionally funny and Heffron's surprise elimination early on. "I was the Last Comic for like two weeks," he says. "Even the prom queen gets to be queen for a year."
