Wickedly funny, fearless and poignant, John’s arsenal of sickly smart comedy is enough to leave any crowd begging for more. At only nineteen years old the Vancouver-based comedian took his first shot at stand-up. Before turning 25, he had already starred in a national comedy special, won the Just for Laughs Home Grown Comedy Competition, finished in the finals of the Seattle International comedy Competition and shot two more Canadian stand-up specials. John has performed in the Just for Laughs Festival Gala and later went on to win the Corner Gas Comedy contest, awarding him $10 000 and an appearance on the hit series with his mentor, Brent Butt. John has opened for the likes of Dennis Miller, Brent Butt, Joan Rivers, Martin Short, Zach Galifianakis, and Craig Ferguson, experience and exposure building John up as one of North America’s favourite comics.
In the media:
“If the TV and movie executives who audit Beuhler don’t make him a star, the world will have a lot less laughter in it.” Vancouver Sun
“When it seemed that nothing could go right (at the Just For Laughs Gala) John Beuhler, a young, unheralded, Canuck comic took the stage. He slayed, and save the night.” Montreal Gazette
“Bill Maher, Margaret Cho, and Bill Cosby. John Beuhler is neither a big name nor an American-he is, in fact, a local-but he’s just as funny as they are.” Georgia Straight
“I don’t see why he doesn’t go to school and become a doctor. He would still be funny, but this way he would also have a reliable income. Nothing says you can’t be a doctor or lawyer and still do stand-up.” Gayle Beuhler
