As a Performer

John has been performing professionally for the entire 21st century. He is funny, unfailingly polite, and always at just the right level for his audience. His children's and family shows are hilarious while always meeting parental standards for manners, language and politeness. Adult shows can roar with a bit of innuendo, but the material is guaranteed to entertain and never to offend.


"Thank you for a great time! Everyone was telling me how much they enjoyed your show and loved how it was Vegas themed with all the cards."--Sarah P.

"Thank you so much for your amazing performances again this year!! LOVED them!!!"--Jessica M.

"Thanks for coming out to the party on Saturday! Everyone had a really good time and we are still laughing about it at the office this week!"--Kim S.

"Thanks so much for getting the party off to a great start. It was a perfect beginning and you had everyone in awe! This is a great way to start a party; a real ice breaker. I always find the first ½ hr of a party a little awkward, but not this time. You just jumped right in and got things moving nicely. It was also nice to relieve the people pressure in the sun room as it was a little crowded in there at the start. Thanks so much – I’m glad I found you! --Jane T.
