John. The close relationship he has developed with the FDNY, as well as individual firefighters across the New York/New England area, has resulted in Leary's most recent television show, Rescue Me, a drama-comedy on FX. Jones had a well-publicised relationship with the actress, Susan George. He was married briefly to actress Jill St. As the foundation's president, Leary has been active in all of the fundraising, and usually presents large checks and donated equipment personally. Some of his best-known songs included "Wives And Lovers" (now considered seriously non-PC), "Call Me Irresponsible", "Lollipops And Roses", "If", "What I Did for Love", "Dear Heart", "The Impossible Dream", "Lady" and "The Love Boat Theme". A separate fund run by the Leary's foundation, the Fund for New York's Bravest, has distributed over $2 million (USD) to the families of the 343 firefighters killed in the September 11, 2001 attacks, as well as provided funding for necessities such as a new mobile command center, first responder training, and a high-rise simulator for the FDNY's training campus. As a two-time Grammy Awards winner, Jones remains popular in Las Vegas and performs in hotels and in concerts around the world. In response, the comedian founded the Leary Firefighters Foundation, which has since distributed over $2.5 million (USD) to fire departments in the Worcester, Boston, and New York City areas for equipment, training materials, and new vehicles and facilities.
He was considered to be one of the major singers of his time by Frank Sinatra. Tommy Spencer. He was born in Hollywood, California, as the only son of actors Allan Jones and Irene Hervey. Among the dead were Leary's cousin, Jerry Lucey, and his close childhood friend, Lt. Jack Jones (born John Allan Jones in January 14, 1938) is an American jazz and pop singer. On December 3, 1999, 6 firefighters from Leary's hometown of Worcester were killed in a massive warehouse fire. However, many other comedians - including Jon Stewart, Janeane Garofalo, Colin Quinn, and Lenny Clarke - have formed close personal and professional relationships with Leary, which suggests that the opinion of him as a material thief is not shared by everyone within the profession.
While it has never been proven that Leary took any of his jokes from other comedians (a claim he fiercely denies), some comedians (notably Joe Rogan and Greg Giraldo) and especially fans loyal to Hicks consider aspects of Leary's act and persona to be stolen. The friendship ended as a result, though Leary has said he wanted to patch things up before Hicks died in 1994. For many years, Leary had been friends with fellow comedian Bill Hicks. However, when Hicks heard Leary's 1993 release No Cure For Cancer, he decided Leary was stealing his material, due to the perceived similarity in topics covered and some punchlines of Hicks', particularly those on Hicks' releases of 1989 (Sane Man) and 1990 (Dangerous). Leary also produces numerous movies, television shows, and specials, including Comedy Central's Shorties Watching Shorties and the movie Blow, through his production company, Apostle.
He also provided voices for characters in animated films such as Ice Age and A Bug's Life. Although he says he is most at home on stage doing stand-up, Leary has appeared as an actor in over 40 movies, including The Match Maker, The Virgin Suicides, The Ref, Wag the Dog, and Demolition Man. Due to its explicit and controversial content, however, it received limited airplay on mainstream American radio stations. It was voted #1 in a major Australian youth radio poll, the Triple J Hottest 100, and the video became a late-night MTV staple.
In 1994, his sardonic commentary song on the American lower-middle-class male, "Asshole", achieved much notoriety. No Cure for Cancer was written with contributions from the English comedians Frank Skinner and David Baddiel when Leary was forced to stay over in London for a short period due to his son's premature birth there and ensuing health problems. He has also released two records of his stand-up comedy: No Cure for Cancer (1993) and Lock n' Load (1997). Leary first became famous through an MTV sketch in which he ranted about REM.
Leary is a distant cousin through marriage of Conan O'Brien; contrary to popular belief, they are not actually related through a recent common ancestor. He is a graduate of Emerson College in Boston, where he also taught comedy writing classes for five years after graduating.
