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 fantastic to work with! He connected with our group on and off stage, keeping everyone in a great mood and always laughing. John was very professional and very much entertaining for the whole 60 minute performance. Its been a week since he performed and some of our leaders are still making comments about how good his performance was. This was our group's first time hiring a comedian and because of our great experience with John Felt we will incorporating more comedians into our last meetings each year. I would recommend John to any company gathering."

"Our entertainer John Felts was perfect for our event. Very funny guy!! John introduced himself to me when I arrived at the party so I didn’t have to worry about him showing up. He was all set up and had coordinated sound and video with the staff. I have received several comments from my employees on how much they enjoyed his show and the fact that it was a clean show with no profanity or inappropriate innuendos. I would highly recommend John Felts."

- Financial Associate, Client Appreciation Event in Melbourne, FL
"John Felts was hilarious! He was easy to work with, was on time and didn't mind waiting around a little bit for the show to start. He was very funny, very interactive with the audience and made everyone laugh. He even made time to spend time with our clients after the show was over. We would definitely hire him again!"
- Client Relations Coordinator, Company Christmas Party in Plain City, OH
"John Felts was excellent! I can't rave about him enough. He was a huge success with the crowd and with my boss (which certainly made me look good too!). Everyone was laughing hysterically, and he did a great job of involving the crowd. He arrived early and got to know some of the guests which helped incorporate them in his jokes. He and your company will definitely come highly recommended in the future. Thanks for all your help. He truly was hilarious and talented!"
