John O’Hurley

John O'HurleyAward-winning actor John O’Hurley has catapulted into one of television’s busiest and most versatile actor/show host, Broadway star, advertising hero as well as being a New York Times best-selling author and Billboard chart-topping composer.

O’Hurley is best known as “J. Peterman” on “Seinfeld” which is now the #1 syndicated show in the world and can be seen in 85 countries. John won a Screen Actors Guild Award for his work on “Seinfeld.” It was O’Hurley’s unique portrayal of the wry and witty “J. Peterman” that led to dozens of advertising campaigns for companies earning him multiple advertising and marketing industry awards. He captured America’s heart with his turn on Season 1 of “Dancing with the Stars,” where he officially won the ABC series with the highly contested “Dance Off “ and was named one of People Magazine’s, “Sexiest Men Alive”.

O’Hurley is now the regular host of NBC Sports highest rated yearly show, “The National Dog Show presented by Purina,” a thirteen-old Thanksgiving tradition to 22 million viewers. He was also host of the long-time popular game shows “Family Feud” and To Tell The Truth”. One of the most recognizable voices in entertainment, he is the voice of many animated characters like King Neptune on “SpongeBob Square Pants” and the Mayor on Disney’s hit “Phineas and Ferb.”

On Broadway and on stages across the country, he is best known for his many performances as King Arthur on Monty Python’s “Spamalot” and his continuing portrayal of slick lawyer, Billy Flynn in the Broadway legend “Chicago”.

As a composer/pianist, both of his albums “Secrets From The Lake” and “Peace Of Our Minds” have reached the Billboard charts.

His unusual versatility as both entertainer and businessman continues to be the focus of many features in magazines like Business Week and Time Magazine. In addition, life imitates art for him as John is now the business partner of the J. Peterman Company, along with the real J. Peterman.

In 2012, he was awarded the Ellis Island Medal of Honor in recognition for his accomplishments in the Arts and Philanthropy.

He lives in Beverly Hills with his wife Lisa and their son, William.
