Known for his smooth storytelling, his imaginative audience interaction's and his ribtickling gags which had our audiences howling with laughter. A solid act who will add value to any show he appears on". Andrew Carberry : Yellow Comedy
With silly stories aplenty, an occasional dalliance with a pun or five. Johnny brings his childlike, enthusiastic and slightly naive outlook on life, to his Stand-up Comedy musings. Drawing extensively from his life experiences as a former shepherd on a wind farm, an underwater tap dance champion and Manager for a nationwide chain of bottle banks. Combined with his amazing range of animal impressions (well, ok, maybe just the same one repeated three times) he has the ability to provide his comedy bits in five, ten or twenty mirth giggle filled minutes for your delectation and delight (additional humour mirth times are also available upon request).
Johnny does not understand the meaning of fear (and various other big words) unafraid to dance cheek to cheek along the cutting edge of controversy, albeit in a non-controversial and non-threatening manner. His warm whimsical approach and natural rapport stands him in good stead as either stand up or compère for gigs and events. He has shown his comedy bits all over London and the Home Counties and also for the good people of Hull. Yes, he's been to Hull and back!
