When John Mingione (aka John Online) takes a break from fighting crime, he enjoys making others laugh. Whether it's making comedy films for his website; JOHNisFUNNY.com or conducting 'man on the street' interviews; John strives to find the 'funny' in every aspect of life. John tries to bring a fun new twist to each and every morning with Dana and Jeffrey!
John is a recent graduate of SUNY New Paltz, where he earned his degree in Media Production. As a film student, he won several awards including a CINE Golden Eagle and a BEA (Broadcast Education Association) Award for his comedy movie musical "All I Can Say: The Musical" and an additional BEA Award for his short form documentary, "Nobody Else But Me."
When he is not making movies, John has many other hobbies. He enjoys a wide genre of music ranging from classical symphonies to gangster rap. John plays a variety of instruments including guitar, drums, cello, and piano as well as the bass guitar (he can also play the crap out of a tambourine!). John plays bass and sings vocals in the pop-punk band All I Can Say.
Besides his passion for music, John enjoys a wide variety of athletic actives including snowboarding, basketball, racquetball, and extreme scootering. Although he can be a party-animal at times, John prefers a night in watching good movies and hanging out with friends. Since he was a young boy, he knew he wanted to be an entertainer. To this day, John prefers to be putting on the show, rather than being in an audience.
Whether it's creating fun audio segments, showing off films at festivals, or just telling a funny story at a party; John will admit that he loves to be the center of attention.
Keep an ear out for John Online every morning with Dana and Jeffrey from 5:30am-9am. To watch all of his films log onto JOHNisFUNNY.com!
