John has written for some of the biggest names in comedy including Phill Jupitus, Lenny Henry, Paul O’Grady (as Paul and as Lily Savage) , Milton Jones, Harry Enfield, Gina Yashere and many many more.

He has helped countless new comedians take their set to a new level and is able to offer advice on every aspect of their performance.


“John as a collaborator and writer is hugely talented. He is keenly aware that ‘funny’ is dependant on a wide range of factors. Timing, delivery, language, space, energy. I’ve lost count of the number of times his material and suggestions have elevated a decent routine into a classic and memorable one. John is no mere joke writer, he’s like a full service comedy engineer.” 

Phill Jupitus 

"John instantly got the tone and subject matter for what I need. He is also responsible for a couple absolute killer short form gags that I know are bankers every time I get up"

Alex Lowe (Clinton Baptiste)

‘John weaves really excellent jokes from THE most unexpected of places…’

Dan Skinner (Angelos Epithemiou)

“Having John's support with writing has moved my career forward so much quicker than I could have done alone. Not only is his hit rate with gags incredible but he gave me a completely new way of looking at writing and comedy. I cannot recommend using John’s services highly enough."

Louie Green

"John has the ability to take any premise or joke and make it next level funny. He can take any persona and create, curate and elevate material to match. He also works on the full package, looking at pace, energy, stage presence and tone. Personally John has given me so much confidence as a performer that I didn't have previously. When you're working with John, you know you're in safe hands. "
