From his origins in Crawcrook, a small village in the North East of England to his present status as one of Britain’s top live comedians, John’s life has been anything but dull. Starting out cleaning the deck of a gas rig in the North Sea, moving on to sound man at a Quakers meeting (mainly silent contemplation) and then to professional bongo player, he finally found his natural place in the world of stand-up. He now plays all the top gigs, tours overseas and is in great demand as a compere in every corner of the world.
The Age, Melbourne said "Relaxed and happy to banter with the crowd ...the stand out of the night"
The Sun said "A top comedy turn and a right funny bloke"
Daily Mirror said "He certainly isn’t a Sir. But if there was any justice in the world he would be."
The Guardian said "Hilarious stories delivered superbly"
