why you need
John has been a success on the comedy stage, since starting stand up in 2007. He has performed with the likes of Gerry Dee, Caroline Rhea, and Louis CK.
John Sheehan is one of Newfoundland and Labrador's hottest rising stars. He has quickly gained tremendous national recognition and exposure as a stand-up comedian. Although stand-up is his focus, John is well-known for his talents as an actor, emcee and writer. Everyone relates to his comedy, because you've actually had that friend, aunt, brother, or other whacked out relationship. Couple that with legendary Newfoundland timing and its bust-a-gut-loosen-the-top-button-milk-through-yer-nose-pee-your-pants-a-little-bit.funny. He has appeared at The Halifax Comedy Festival, The St. John's Comedy Festival, CBC Radio's The Debators, and in several television commercials. Then it was stand-up gigs with corporate clients such as Labatt Breweries, Royal LePage, and Sobey's. Throw in three kids, a patient wife, a mortgage and way too much CPR training (he is a firefighter too – check out MR. JANUARY) and the choice was obvious.
We laughed so hard we cried when we saw you at the Royal LePage National Sales Conference in Newfoundland and our agents thought you were HILARIOUS when you came to our company Christmas party in Burlington, Ontario. We could listen to you over and over again … and laugh just as much each time!

It was a true pleasure to have John join us for the OLS Tenure Awards Event. As our entertainer for the evening he was able to dove tail right into the atmosphere that had already been created that evening. He not only complemented it, but he raised it to a higher level. The people were literally laughing off their chairs with his humor and wit, while at the same time his material was not offending and could have been used across a wide general audience. Most comedians I have heard use a great deal of vulgarity to make humor, John did not. It takes a very skilled person with extreme wit to pull off what you did. Everyone is still talking about his act. Thank you for helping us make that special evening a memorable one for our employees
