Johnny Kats

A talented and energetic performer with an arsenal of impersonations, Johnny is a dynamic stand-up comedian. Johnny began performing stand-up in Australia and is now based in the UK. Johnny performs in all major comedy clubs across the UK and also performs regularly across continental Europe. In his first year of comedy in 2002 he made the JJJ radio stand-up state finals for RAW comedy.

He was awarded first prize in two national comedy competitions in Australia – So You Think 
You’re Funny? and Angling for a Laugh, which sent him to perform in New York City.

Johnny stayed on for several months and was proud to be chosen as best new talent to support Dave Chappelle at the Boston Comedy Club. Upon his return to Australia, Johnny was chosen to host his own comedy radio programme on week-nights across Melbourne, on NOVA 100, the “Johnny & Jody” show. In that four-year stretch Johnny & Jody regularly won the top ratings spot.

Johnny has had his first solo sell out show at the Melbourne International comedy festival.
