  • How Did All This Happen?

In Detail

John performed stand-up comedy for the first time in 2000, and the following year made it to the final of all the major new act competitions, including the Daily Telegraph Open Mic Awards, the BBC New Comedy Awards and the City Life North West Comedian of The Year Award, which he won. In 2002, he was named best newcomer by BBC Radio Merseyside, and in 2004 he won the North West Comedy Award for best stand-up. In 2009, he was shortlisted for the Edinburgh Comedy Awards.


The consummate Liverpudlian comedian, John's material is drawn from his life's experiences, from fatherhood to cycling around the world, to playing semi- professional football, to working as a nightclub doorman. His mix of hilarious observational comedy and tear-jerking pathos leaves his audiences feeling like they have just made a new best friend.
