John Mayer dabbles in variety?

Is there anyone luckier than John Mayer? After several platinum, Grammy-winning records, playing with nearly every blues legends alive today, selling out tours at amphitheaters every summer, and dating the finest women in Hollywood, including Jennifer Love Hewitt, Jessica Simpson, and most recently Jennifer Aniston, you would think Mayer would have enough to brag about.
