John first walked onto the stage as a young child which lead to one of the youngest trespassing charges being brought in the history of Canada. Not really but dumb comments like these lead John to start comedy in 2006, making the move to the UK after winning Canada’s COCA Comedian of the Year Award in 2012 and being the last comedian to be given an hour special on CTV.  Since that move, John has appeared British Television with comedy sets on both Comedy Central’s Stand Up Central and BBC Three’s Sean Walsh’s Late Night Comedy Spectacular. He loves you!
