A lot of comedians exaggerate about themselves when telling jokes. When Johnny Watson tells a joke about himself, his family, and his upbringing, no exaggeration is necessary. Watson, a white kid living in a series of black and Hispanic neighborhoods while growing up in New Jersey with two brothers and two sisters, couldn’t fight, so he told jokes to survive. And he’s still telling jokes to his legions of fans throughout the United States. And most of those (real) bits are about his family – “my father was a heroin addict and all my mother did was watch TV and smoke cigarettes”; or his upbringing in poor neighborhoods – “I was the poor kid on free lunch who always got my balls busted so since I couldn’t really fight, I had to be funny.” So funny that he was voted funniest and best story teller in grammar school and in high school. Turned out the “high school honor” was his only honor. Johnny graduated LAST in his class. His grandmother implored him to become a comedian because “you can’t do anything else right.” Watson started drinking when he was five years old and kept on going until high school. “I was burned out from drinking by the time I got to high school, so I became the designated driver before they had designated drivers,” he says. After briefly attending college in California, Johnny joined the Navy. Once he got out, he turned to comedy as a full-time profession. Watson has appeared throughout the United States at many of the biggest clubs, including The Laugh Factory in New York City and The Comedy Store in Los Angeles. He has also been in a host of TV, film and theater productions and does corporate engagements as well. When he is not on stage, Watson plays whiffle ball, cribbage and does other “exciting things.”

February 1979. While attending Mercy college in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y. Eddie was approached by members of the student government organization and asked to m.c. a talent show to be held at the school. All of the contestants were singers and Eddie’s job would be introducing the performers and entertaining the audience with comedy while the judges decided the winner of the talent show. After the last performer left the stage and the judges started to leave, Eddie asked the judges to return to there seats because, there was still one last contestant. Eddie then went on a 12-minute comedy rampage that ended with him winning 3rd place. It was then that Eddie knew what he wanted to do with his life.
In November of 1979 Eddie Clark and a friend walked into the Original Improvisation Comedy Club in New York City to audition for a regular spot at the club. Eddie got a chance to show the owner what he could do and despite his lack of experience, he thrilled everyone in the club that night…. Everyone…  except the owner. The club’s policy was that if the owner liked you she would talk to you. If she didn’t, the performer was to just walk by her without saying a word. As Eddie left the stage the owner looked away. Eddie walked outside with his friend and then suddenly turned around walked back into the club and whispered in the startled owner’s ear, “ Thanks for the opportunity to show the “PEOPLE” what I can do.” He has lived by that motto ever since. Eddie then left the club and never looked back. The New York Improv closed a few years later but Eddie is still going strong.
Old enough to remember the sixties yet young enough to enjoy the new millennium, Eddie Clark is still one of the hardest working comics on the circuit today. Eddie was born in Jamaica… QUEENS, NY and raised in the city of Mount Vernon, NY, where he developed his ability to induce laughter from total strangers. Eddie’s humor is a blend of personal experiences and everyday life. Eddie’s stand up has made him a favorite on morning radio shows around the country and has opened opportunities for him to help raise money and awareness for the Susan G. Komen Foundation for the Cure. Eddie appeared on Law & Order S.V.U. , the films “Blood Night” ( Currently available on DVD )”Camp” ( I.F.C.), “Salted Nuts” (featured at the 2006 “Sundance Film Festival” )   , ” The Flying Scissors.” , “and the Law & Order made for TV movie “Exiled” as well as several commercials & promo’s including, “TV Land Prime Movies, The Washington Post, OPTIMUM ONLINE, Major League Baseball, New York Presbyterian Hospital, Comcast Cable, Monster.Com, Nick jr. , National Geographic Channel, ADVANTA, care one credit, Quicken Loans, A&E “Cold Case Files,” Gothic Cabinet Craft, Red Lobster, Cablevision, Fox Sports and WCBS (New York channel 2). In 2003 Eddie appeared nationally on ESPN 2’s “Cold Pizza” and hosted two online shows at the U.S. Tennis Open for the U.S.T.A. and America Online. In 2004 Eddie Appeared on C.M.T. ( Country Music Television). The show (40 Greatest Done Me Wrong Songs) was one of the Top 5 Highest Rated Specials for C.M.T. in 2004! Eddie then went on to do two more specials for the network in 2005.  Eddie just finished working on a new project touting the advantages of natural gas which will be on your TV soon!

Eddie has expanded his comedy to Carnival Cruise Lines!

When describing Eddie’s style of entertainment one can only come to this conclusion…. Its just Eddie being Eddie!

His high energy act, storytelling and facial expressions endear him to audiences and have them readily waiting to see him again. He’s an act you don’t want to miss.
