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 Felts was extraordinary. Prior to the event, we were in regular contact. On the day of the event, he arrived early and was well-prepared for the event. His audiovisual use of information provided to him allowed him to connect quickly with the crowd of nearly 200, most of whom were teenagers. John was warm, transparent, engaging, and extremely funny. Woven within his comedy were messages of character and responsibility. He might have arrived as a stranger to our audience, but he left a rock star. We hope to be able to work with John again one day."
- Associational Missionary, Volunteer Appreciation in Walterboro, SC
"John Felts is professional and easy to work with. I really appreciated that John went the extra mile to research the youth groups that would be present at our event and to incorporate things from their environments into the show. The attendees were surprised and honored that he took the time to know them."
- Director of Programming, Christian Youth Retreat in Lake Junaluska, NC
"John Felts was funny and adapted his show to the audience. He did research about who was there so the audience felt like they were a part of the show."
- Youth Pastor, Youth Event in Matthews, NC
"John Felts performed at one of our Winter Youth Retreats in front of a multi-denominational audience of about fifteen youth groups from churches across the Southeastern US. The youth and adults alike laughed constantly as he shared jokes and observations about parenting, youth group leadership and particiaption, church life, school life, marriage and more. He took time before his show to learn more about who was present in the audience and drew from that to ensure the audience felt he knew and understood them. He communicated well prior to the engagement, was on time for the show, worked well with our event leaders and tech crew, and showed real interest in our organization. I will certainly consider booking him again."

I could tell he took time to research our area and tailor his performance to our people, our area and our event. He interacted with our audience well, especially given that it was outside and dark. Everyone I talked to afterwards loved him. John was also extremely easy to work with. He was prompt, very personable one on one, and worked hard to help make our event a success.I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a fun evening of clean comedy."

- Youth Director, Converge Youth Concert in Claremont, NC
"The performance by John Felts was great. We had 600 in attendance and John had them laughing from start to finish. John was top notch to work with. He contacted me weeks before the show date to get some "inside" information on our school. After he got that info, he called me to talk through some of the finer points of our traditions to make sure that the audience would "get the joke." I could tell from his questions that he knew what he was doing and that reassured me and helped with promotion. John used the right amount"
- Director of Campus Life, Family weekend in Searcy, AR
