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 did a wonderful job of localizing his presentation. He included local points of interest and people from the audience appreciated it. Very friendly and easy to work with."
- VP of Development, Comedy Night Fundraiser in Rock Springs, WY
"John Felts did an amazing job! We didn't have the turn out that we had hoped and even with a smaller crowd, he entertained with great relevant jokes. He arrived as planned and was very professional and friendly. Our family talked about some of his jokes even after we were back at the house. Would highly recommend him!"
- Treasurer, Annual Scholarship Fundraiser in Paris, TX
"We had a wonderful time with John Felts at our Farm-City Week Dinner. He was super! He arrived early, mingled with the crowd, picked out some great ones to pull up on stage, and made everyone feel right at home. The audience LOVED the dyslexic card trick. Too funny. We would recommend John to any group. Super super professional."
- County Extension Director, Farm-City Week Banquet in Wadesboro, NC
"John Felts was a wonderful fit for our fundraising event. He was timely, professional, connected well with the audience and most importantly kept everyone laughing. I even saw a few folks laughing so hard they had tears in their eyes. Personally, I noticed that my cheeks were actually hurting from smiling and laughing so hard! This was our first comedy fundraising event, and I think the event planning committee easily agrees with me that we would love to have John back for another event in the future!"
