Johnny Watson

Johnny Watson is known as one of the most consistent

and professional headlining comedians in the country. He’s a “Jersey

Kid” born and raised in some of the toughest neighborhoods in the State,

inside one of the most unforgiving households in the Universe, “sorry

Ma!”

“Johnny always gets the job done, regardless of the size of the crowd or the venue.”

Gordon Mills, Club Owner

Watson has charmed audiences across the United States using his raw

talent, honesty and innate ability to explain life’s challenges in his

own edgy, yet refreshingly clean style. And when Johnny tells a story

it's authentic and relevant.

“Johnny is just like Brian Regan: he is squeaky clean and super funny,”

Bob Perkell, Comedian

As a kid Johnny was accustomed to food stamps, TV Dinners and free

lunch programs which transitioned him well for his first few careers, a

Navy Seaman, Medieval Times busboy and (un)professional baby

photographer.

As Johnny tells it, "I was the poor kid on free lunch who always got

my chops busted; since I couldn't fight, I had to be funny."

And he's still funny, very funny, making countless fans laugh until

they cry with tales of his family, his absentee (not substance free)

father, his unsympathetic mother, and his own juvenile struggles that

continue to this day.

“Johnny Watson always makes me laugh.”

Adam Ferrara, Star Comedian

Johnny Watson has appeared at the Comic Strip Live, Dangerfield's

Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club and The Comedy

Store in Los Angeles, among others. He has also appeared in numerous TV,

film and theater productions including Saturday Night Live, and the

film Killing John Lennon.

Watson developed The Johnny Watson Show, the first mother and son

podcast with a variety format featuring talented comics and mainstream

content.

Johnny is very serious about his art. When he is not on stage, he

studies the greats, writes voraciously, and is constantly trying out new

material on anyone with ears (much to their delight)!
