Description

You've seen him on stage, but have you ever heard the man behind the microphone? America's Got Talent 2013 semi—finalist John Wing is a comedian who shares his jokes on stage and shares his emotions and experiences through poetry. He started in small—town Sarnia and made his way to big-time Los Angeles. He's previously been published by Black Moss Press with his 2014 collection of poetry, Why-Shaped Scars. His next book of poetry, I'll Be There Soon, will be published in April of 2016.

About the Author

John Wing

Born and raised in Sarnia, Ontario, John Wing has been a stand-up comedian for more than 20 years. He has worked in comedy clubs and colleges in thirty states and in every Canadian province. Arriving in America in the late '80s, John quickly racked up appearances on Fox's Comic Strip Live, MTV's Half Hour Comedy Hour, VH-1's Stand Up Spotlight, and A&E's An Evening At The Improv, on which he has performed five times. He has also starred in two pilots, Class Clowns for Disney and Dick Clark Productions, and Longshot Caf? for Filmhouse Entertainment. John's big break came with a shot at The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1990. He has since made six appearances. Having made his deadpan, sarcastic wit a style to be reckoned with, John made his second go-around at the 1993 Montreal Just For Laughs Festival and his performance for the Canadian Broadcasting Company's special was strong enough to earn him a Gemini nomination, Canada's award for excellence in television. In 2007 John had his own radio show on CBC.
