Before turning to comedy John was a tabloid journalist, although he says he wasn’t very good at it. Which is a shame because he did it for bloody ages.
These days when John’s not performing comedy he writes it, with credits across network TV and radio. He has headlined comedy shows from Doncaster to Dubai, and at lots of places in-between. You may have seen him on Coronation Street, as “Barry Sidwell”, John makes his big screen debut alongside Robert Carlyle, in big budget action thriller The Tournament.
