He is a graduate of Harvard University, where he contributed to the Harvard Lampoon. Prior to joining the Simpsons show, he had a brief stint with Saturday Night Live. He has stated on a DVD commentary that it was "a very unhappy year".
He is sometimes credited as "John Vitti".
He has also used the pseudonym Penny Wise. Vitti used the pseudonym for episodes "Another Simpsons Clip Show" and "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular" because he did not want to be credited for writing a clip show as expressed on Simpsons DVD commentaries yet ironcially his name was credited for writing the first Simpsons clip show "So It's Come to This: A Simpsons Clip Show". The director of "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular", "Pound Foolish", has been revealed to be David Silverman.
