John caters to audiences seeking good humor and good taste. He delivers real, funny, one-of-a-kind perspectives on dating, marriage, parenting, American culture and struggling to do the right thing.
John grew up in Northern Virginia, just outside of Washington D.C. He studied Marketing at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington and worked a regular shirt and tie job as his interest in comedy grew. After competing in and winning local comedy competitions, John discovered he had knack for telling jokes and stories that could draw a crowd of any age.
John enjoys making a wide variety of audiences laugh while never having to resort to harsh language, shock value or taboo subject matters. Each show is custom fit to the company or organization by gathering information prior to the performance to create that personal feel.
His comedy is a mix of commentary, story-telling, and clean humor. He currently lives in downtown Wilmington, NC with his wife, Elizabeth and their two young children.
"John did a fantastic set. He made sure the audience was involved. Was easy to work with ad a great personality."
- Senior Pastor, Church Anniversary Celebration in Ashtabula, OH
"John Felts is better than advertised. Let me tell you, this man comes prepared. When John arrived at our church, he knew more about our church and community than some of our members. His humor was tailored made for our church and the people loved it. Even a couple of our members who do not like stand up comedy told me afterwards how much they enjoyed evening. John Felts is funny with no bitter aftertaste. I highly recommend him for your next event."
- Teaching Pastor, Fellowship Night in Villa Rica, GA
"John Felts gave us an amazing time! John was very funny and very respectful of the audience. We have received numerous reports from our students saying how much they loved what they heard. John earned his money by putting hours of work in ahead of time before the event. He took the time to look up research on our town, church, and student ministry. He related very well and I would highly recommend."

- Business Banking Assistant, Annual Meeting in Devils Lake, ND
"John Felts put on an amazing show for us! Everyone at our event loved him. He had great, fresh, and funny material. We received numerous compliments from those in attendance. Our event was a couple’s banquet. We loved how John wove his own life experience into the show to encourage and challenge our couples, all while keeping us laughing. The audience loved how he took time to research our city and even our church leaders, pointing out hilarious observations about both. His comedy is fun, tasteful, and hilarious. We would strongly recommend John Felts for your next event. We have hosted him three times in the past few years and he keeps getting better each time. We would definitely have him back for future events."

- Administrative Assistant, Annual Safety and Service Banquet in Farmville, NC
"John Felts was asked perform in front of a room full of police officers, which is obviously a different crowd than he is used to entertaining. Not only did he knock it out of the park during the performance, two days after the event people are STILL laughing at his jokes and that is no small achievement! John was great from start to finish and spent the time leading up to his set visiting with the audience. He is a very personable, friendly and energetic comedian who we would love to invite back to other events!"
