Performing to a small crowd is always a challenge- but John had the audience at The Butterfly Club in stitches with his relatable antics, and quirky physical impressions.

I found myself muttering ‘that’s true’ to many of the stories John told, with topics like- the tell tale sign we have reached a new height of laziness, the excessive sweat and red face we get when we are anxious, and the ordeal of trying to fake a believable sick day.

This show has been tuned so every joke is in the right key, resulting in well-crafted comedy. He broke down the extreme absurdity of sport fishing in a way I didn’t know was possible. Told very funny stories about catching mice and unleashing them on the neighbours.

I would say there is a mix of stories that evoke great laughter because of their relatability, as well as quirky thoughts and physicality unique to John’s style.
