Quotes

Jim Belushi: He chaged Second City, cause all they used to talk about was philosophy and intellectual concepts and John would come in there and play this hippie off the street who's lost his memory from smoking too much pot, and the audience would go nuts.

A Great Doc
29 November 2020 | by dave-87218See all my reviews

A very good retelling of John's story from his childhood through his untimely death.

John in his own words, spoken and written plus the thoughts of his friends and peers. Videos, still photos and animation for the audio recordings of him.

Well worth a watch if you were a fan.
