John began performing stand up comedy at the age of 19. In his first few years, John starred in a national comedy special, won the Just for Laughs Home Grown Comedy Competition, finished in the finals of the Seattle International Comedy Competition, and shot two more Canadian stand-up specials for Canadian national television, all before the age of 25.
John has performed in the Just for Laughs Festival Gala where he won over the crowd and was touted as saving the show.
John then went on to win the Corner Gas Comedy contest, giving him the $10,000 grand prize and an appearance on “Corner Gas” with his mentor Brent Butt. John has opened for the likes of Dennis Miller, Brent Butt, Joan Rivers, Martin Short, Zach Galifianakis and Craig Ferguson, to name a few. John’s style has been described as wickedly funny, fearless and poignant.
John’s arsenal of sickly smart comedy is enough to leave any crowd begging for more. He is fast becoming one of North America’s favorite comedians.
