john garrettWhat is your name?

John Garrett

What are you best known for?

Customized comedy.

How long have you been in the humor space?

My first time doing standup was 14 years ago but I didn’t go full-time until 2005.

How did you get started using humor?

I’ve always liked street jokes as a kid and I found they were a good way to make friends as the new kid. My father was in the Air Force, so I was the new kid quite a few times. As I got older and began working in Corporate America, I realized that humor helped make difficult situations more tolerable for everyone.

What is one thing you wish everyone knew?

How annoying it is when you leave a shopping cart in the parking lot. Also that being a comedian is a real job. And it’s harder than any corporate job I ever had.

What is your favorite website?


People should contact you if…

They need someone work with them as an emcee or after-dinner entertainment to create an interactive event that everyone will be talking about.
