And then there’s Jonathan Pekar, an ambassador of creativity and a champion of fun. There is no length he will not go to entertain.
This University of Southern California Cinematic Arts graduate failed miserably at being a professional skateboarder. However, as a stand-up comedian (opening act for Richard Pryor, paid regular at The Laugh Factory and The Comedy Store, his name painted on the Legends of Comedy Wall on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood), Actor (Beverly Hills 90210, Spy, The Skateboard Kid), Singer/Songwriter (80′s punk band DISTEMPER and present day ARE YOU A COP) and Producer (Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, When Predators Attack, I Was Bitten and various other documentaries, music videos and commercials) has obviously found great success.
Today this proud Memphis native is the Director of Ardent’s Film Department where he passionately looks forward to working with you.
Jonathan is a Memphis personality, to say the least.
