John O’Hurley On Hosting This Year’s National Dog Show, “Seinfeld,” Maine & More

John O’Hurley has gone from being best known as J. Peterman on Seinfeld to catapulting into one of television’s busiest and most versatile actors. Beyond finding success as a show host (To Tell The Truth, Family Feud, NBC’s The National Dog Show), Broadway star and advertising hero (O’Hurley invested in the relaunch of The J. Peterman Company, and since 1999 has been a part-owner and member of its board of directors), he was a first season contestant on Dancing With The Stars. O’Hurley also manages to make time to tour with a band and performing the touring show known as A Man With Standards.

The aforementioned National Dog Show Presented By Purina will air after the Thanksgiving Day Parade. John O’Hurley has proudly hosted The National Dog Show each year on Thanksgiving Day since 2002. I had the pleasure of speaking with O’Hurley about this and plenty more via Zoom on September 15, 2022, as embedded below. O’Hurley also entertained questions about his days on Seinfeld, his New England upbringing, and what else is coming up for him career-wise.
