John Fothergill

"Everything he says is funny. He looks like he was born onstage, under a follow spot, with a mic in his hand." The Guardian
"Hilarious stories delivered superbly." The Guardian

This lively Geordie is a highly sought-after headline comic with his blend of cocky insults and slick banter.

John became a regular at Newcastle’s Comedy Café and in 1993, his first year as a comedian, he was lucky enough to appear with the likes of Jack Dee, Lee Evans and Jo Brand.

In 1997 John performed a month long run at the Adelaide International Comedy Festival, and in 1999 he appeared on BBC1’s The Stand Up Show, and became a regular member of the Comedy Store’s highly regarded Cutting Edge team.

He has also appeared on BBC1’s Never mind the Buzzcocks.
