Get To Know Singer/Actor John Corbett Before Tonight's Show at The Gramophone


Your bio on johncorbettmusic.com says that you're a KISS fan. So which KISS member or character best embodies who you are as a person?

Paul Stanley is the natural pick because of all the usual reasons: frontman, lead singer, best hair, extra-hairy chest, little tiny baby rose tattoo on arm. That's who I wanna be!

IMDB shares that you're a licensed hair stylist!?

I [have been] a licensed hairdresser since 1986. Until I was about fifteen, I got my hair cut like Moe from The Three Stooges because it was just badass to be like him. Today at 52, you have to admit I still have pretty great hair. In fact, a lot of people think I must wear a wig!

You're to blame, Twitter. This drawing gives JBJ love a bad name.

Your Twitter feed (@realjohncorbett) is almost nothing but illustrations of Jon Bon Jovi. What's up with that?

If the world needs another celebrity to send out an inner thought, then they should take to the streets and let me know, and I will tweet a picture of my feet up on a footstool or maybe a selfie with raised eyebrows, pursed lips and sucked-in cheeks. Until then it's fan drawings of Jon Bon Jovi.

St. Louis is known throughout the country for its many, many doughnut shops. Of all of the characters you've portrayed -- from Chris on Northern Exposure to Detective Demille from Street Kings to the Applebee's voiceover guy -- who would win in an old-fashioned doughnut-eating contest?

I would beat all of my characters in everything, because they are my puppets. I created them, and they only do what I say! Plus, I'm 6'5" and 235 lbs. -- no one I know can beat me in a doughnut-eating contest!

@AMBabka First show I realized the "supporting" cast can actually carry it more than the leads and was totally ok with that.
