John Henson: A Tiny Corner Of The TV Universe

Posted: Updated:

John Henson is back for the sixth season as one of the hosts of "Wipeout," that competition show in which contestants willingly subject themselves to physical punishment all in hopes of winning cash.  On Good Day L.A., Steve Edwards and Maria Sansone talk with John about "Wipeout" and about the E! show he hosted back in the late 1990's, "Talk Soup."

Fun facts about John:

  • Henson began his career as a stand-up comic. He started appearing in films in the mid to late 1990s.
  • He was the longest-running host (four years) of Talk Soup on the E! Entertainment Network
  • Was host of The John Henson Project, a short-lived comedy-reality show on Spike TV.
  • John also appeared in the Blink-182 music video for "What's My Age Again?"
