John Mayer treated New Yorkers at a comedy club in Manhattan to a surprise performance this week (beg27Sep10) after funnyman Jeffrey Ross asked for a volunteer to play the piano and the rocker put himself forward.

Jeffrey Ross was performing a stand-up set at legendary venue Carolines on Broadway and he stopped to ask the audience whether anyone would accompany him on piano for one of his skits.

After dismissing the first volunteer due to her limited musical skills, Jeffrey Ross spotted another eager participant in the crowd.

And the audience was stunned when John Mayer walked on to the stage to play along with the comedian, according to New York Post gossip column Page Six.
