The Comedians:

Headliner - John Beuhler

John began performing stand up comedy at the tender age of nineteen and quickly rose to the level of one of Canada’s top headline comedians. In his first few years starred in a television mockumentary, won the Just for Laughs Home Grown Comedy Competition, finished in the finals of the Seattle International Comedy Competition and shot two Canadian stand-up specials for Canadian national television - all before the age of 25.

John has performed in the Just for Laughs Festival Gala where he won over the crowd and was touted as saving the show. The Montreal Gazette said of Beuhler, "When it seemed that nothing could go right (at the Just for Laughs Gala) John Beuhler, a young, unheralded, Canuck comic took the stage. He slayed and save the night." - Montreal Gazette

John then went on to win the Corner Gas Comedy contest. Giving him $10 000 and an appearance on Corner Gas with his mentor Brent Butt.

John has opened for the likes of Dennis Miller, Brent Butt, Joan Rivers, Martin Short, Zach Galifianakis and Craig Ferguson to name a few.  John's style has been described as, wickedly funny, fearless and poignant. 

John's arsenal of sickly smart comedy is enough to leave any crowd begging for more. He is fast becoming one of North America's favorite and controversial comedians.

John’s first comedy special Inappropriate is being met with rave reviews on Amazon and iTunes and has surpassed a quarter million views and 5k likes on 800lbs Gorilla Records.

"If the TV and movie executives who audit Beuhler don't make him a star, the world will have a lot less laughter in it."
