Not sure when the video below was conducted, but John mentions turning “50 last week.” John’s 50th birthday was March 23, 2014. He passed away on April 5, 2014. So the video was made just a week or so before his death.
In January 2014 John sent this through Twitter:
I promise to hit the stage as soon as humanly possible so I can once again have the honor of making you all laugh -JP pic.twitter.com/0p27f1DQnQ

RIP, John. We lost you far too soon.
