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.
"As far as John Felts, his performance, & his character, we could not have been more pleased. We had a very diverse crowd and we were all in stitches the entire time. His thoughtfulness to research our community and our school really showed his level of dedication to his client and his craft. It gave the performance a personal touch that was appreciated by everyone. John really went above and beyond what we expected and I can't say enough nice things about him. I would definitely recommend him for entertainment at any event. It was our pleasure to have him at our annual auction, he really made the night one to remember."

"We could not be more satisfied with John's performance! From beginning to end, he had all of us rolling! He had asked a few questions about our church beforehand, and he customized his material to suit us. It was great to have so many of our congregation together laughing at his jokes, and laughing at each other. Words cannot express enough how great he was, it was truly a blessing having him at our church! He was on time, professional, and so friendly. Highly recommended!"

We had such a good time with John, we would recommend him for any venue! Comedy is subjective, but we all had good belly laughs with John. Thanks for a great show John!!"
- Pastor, Church Service in Richmond, VA
"John Felts was great to work with. He was friendly and professional, showed up early, and reminded me several times that he is flexible to work some things out. His show was hilarious and personal. He did his research and connected with our students personally. He rolled with the crowd well and kept people laughing. Some students came in skeptics, but left impressed. One student in particular came expecting to leave early, but stayed for the whole show due to how funny John was. After the show, John stuck around to meet students, take pictures, and speak with some of our leadership. I have already recommended him to another nearby college, and look forward to bringing him back here one day."
- Coordinator for Campus Activities, Welcome Week in Central, SC
"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 was funnier than I expected! Better than the youtube videos available. He studied our audience well to immediately engage at a personal level. He had the grade school kids laughing with the white haired octogenarians. He graciously catered to our location, budget, accommodations as a friend. We plan to have him back again!"
- Music Pastor, Family Festival in Louisville, KY
"Our audience LOVED John Felts! He did such a great job of connecting with them, making eye contact, and speaking to young and old as if he has known us for years.
