After briefly attending college in California, Johnny joined the Navy. Once he got out, he turned to comedy as a full-time profession (his grandmother implored him to become a comedian because “you can’t do anything else right”) And so… a comedy career was born.

You’ve seen Johnny at some of the biggest Comedy Clubs in the country and he has also been seen on TV, (most notably Saturday Night Live and Good Morning America and in a host of independent films and theater productions.
