After scoring the sought-after role of “student” in the 2010 short film Guilty Shoes, J.R. Berard decided to leave his prestigious career at The Home Depot to pursue comedy and show biz full time. Like so many others of his ilk, J.R. calls Seattle home when he’s not on the road entertaning audiences in colleges and comedy clubs in the Northwest. Aside from having trouble meeting women, J.R. also berates himself for having a body that he’s pretty sure only looks good once you’ve turned the lights off and being a “lover of ‘Galactic cake,’ musicals and football.” Your guess is as good as ours.
