The 36-year-old singer is known for his love of reality television, and reportedly would like to make a series of his own called "My Funny Friend." A source recently revealed Mayer's idea to Us Weekly, and told the magazine the musician "thinks it has a great human-interest angle."
"His concept is: Everyone thinks they have a buddy who's so hysterical, he or she should be in comedy," the insider says. "So people nominate their friends, and they go through a series of evaluations to determine if they're actually funny or not."
"John says it's a show about 'dreams,'" the person continues. "He's telling people, 'Think how much joy there is in seeing a friend happy!'"
The 58-year-old chef and television personality currently hosts his own program, "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown," on CNN. He previously hosted "Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations" for nine seasons on the Travel channel.
