The Jon Lovitz Vodcast Network officially launched on June 30th with the premiere of “Lovitz or Leavitz” series featuring Lovitz’s fellow “Saturday Night Live” alumnus Dana Carvey. In addition to Carvey, Lovitz has had a diverse group of guests, including Oscar nominated actor Gary Busey (“The Buddy Holly Story”), Steve-O (MTV’s “Jackass”), entertainment reporter Sam Rubin and actress Krista Allen (“Days of Our Lives,” “Baywatch Hawaii”).

The show takes the form of a classic talk show and will feature a mix of humorous and lively discussions on a variety of topics with celebrities or experts in their fields, skewed through the unique sense of humor of actor/comedian Jon Lovitz. “Make no mistake about it. This is an actual talk show,” says Lovitz. “And because we don’t answer to network executives or censors, audiences can look forward to some pretty lively shows.”

“To help everyone unwind after a long day at work, we’ve signed on to become a sponsor of KLOS radio’s long running ‘Five O’Clock Funnies’ series, which airs on FM 95.5 and streams on the KLOS website. On the operations side, we’ve brought in some of the best pros in the business to help us give both our guests and our performers a world class experience. For example, Dee Burdett and Emily LaFord joined us from the Improv, and of course our delicious new menu items to compliment the fantastic drinks we make at the club.”
