He is the star of his own award-winning 'mockumentary' series The Jon Dore Television Show documenting his hilarious and outrageous debates on life's challenges and changes from weight loss to gender. He also served as co-creator co-producer and writer on the series proving he is just as comfortable behind the camera. The series ran for a successful two seasons on IFC and The Comedy Network.
