“He kept the crowd laughing for the entire length of his performance… He poked fun at things everyone could relate to. When he played the bagpipes, we heard such a wonderful variety of sounds, good entertainment indeed.”

“Not only is Johnny a very funny guy, he is a very warm man who always puts others first. We are indeed lucky to have Johnny as a Canadian comic; even more fortunate to have him as a fellow citizen.”
