Johnnie Casson (click to see what other stars have to say), has become a legend amongst comedians the length & breadth of Britain and has found a popularity envied by many bigger name performers. A unique style of delivery, some clever material and an exceptional warmth, this dynamic and genuinely funny Yorkshireman, with the “mixed-up metaphors”, has a very natural asset - “like-ability”, illustrated within minutes of him commencing his original blend of comedy when smiles and titters soon turn to uncontrollable laughter.

Des O’Connor said Johnnie was one of the funniest comedians to appear on the show. This was proved again when Johnnie appeared in January ‘98. So successful was the recording that Des immediately moved John to the “Star” slot. Comments received after the screening were that  it  was one of the best comedy interviews in recent years.

Bruce Forsyth said  “Johnnie Casson is so funny he could become an enemy”

As well as being a popular Cabaret Comedian the demand for John’s services as an after dinner entertainer are quite phenomenal, making him a leading name on the function market. Proof of his popularity can be found in that wherever he has been booked to entertain demand soon finds him booked to return.

Sir John Mills, the legendary actor, at a recent Johnnie Casson performance was heard to remark, I haven’t laughed so much since I heard Max Miller in 1935!”.

With a top selling Video, “Live At The Opera House” there can be very few comics who remains so popular- year after year!
