He still does weekly live performance shows around Los Angeles at iO West, Second City Hollywood, and the Upright Citizens Brigade with Rob Belushi in their duo 'Sheldon'.

He's also a writer for CW's MadTv.  Jon wants you to know at one point in his life he thought he had a chance to play in the NBA, and was very wrong about that thought.

Rob Belushi: Originally from Chicago, Rob began his career in the Chicago improv and theater scene,  most notably as an alum of the famed Second City.. Rob was memorable in twenty spots for the Gatorade "Sweat-It-To-Get-It"  campaign opposite NFL stars Peyton and Eli Manning,  Cam Newton and JJ Watt. His TV credits include recurring roles on BALLERS (HBO), CHICAGO PD (NBC), THE MENTALIST (CBS), AGENTS OF SHIELD (ABC), HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER (CBS), THE GOODWIN GAMES (FOX). Rob graduated with an Honors B.A. in Film Studies from Wesleyan University (CT) and is a School at Steppenwolf alum. He has been a teacher for Second City since 2008 and can next be seen as the lead on ABC Digital's THE OFF SEASON, or touring comedy festivals in his two-person improv group "Sheldon."
