John Porter

" Charmingly dark, refreshingly honest crowd pleaser." Laughter Factory
"Raw potential." ★★★ Mumble Comedy
"Sweet, darkly menacing humour." The Ha Ha Club

Despite cerebral palsy, this young comedian from Preston, Lancashire is fast becoming a well-recognised name on the UK comedy circuit and following his dreams.

After only gigging for a short time, he became the runner-up in the Manchester XS Comedian Of The Year.

Whether breaking his own heart in Bulgaria, breaking public urination laws in San Francisco, or just plain living in Manchester, John has many hilarious stories to tell.

He has taken two very successful shows to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Lunatic of the Fringe in 2016 followed by Five Years Time in 2017 which is a show about how ridiculous the interview question ‘where do you see yourself in 5 years?’ really is!
