From 1991 to 1998 he traveled the U.S. as a member of the “Jeff Parmer Magic Show”. For three years John and his wife Shelley co-produced and directed the raging 60’s review “The Pastelles’ 60’s Rock N Roll Extravaganza” in which John sang, danced, and performed stand-up as the wacky nerd Eugene. For 3 years he was a performing member of “Keith and Margo’s Murder Mystery” and “Mystery Event Theatre”, being stabbed, shot, and maimed on a nightly basis.
Throughout the 90’s, he starred in national and international commercials for Virginia Slims, Independent Insurance, and many more.

John was seen in “To Tell the Truth” as The Banana Man and Comedy Central‘s “Please Don‘t Feed the Comedians“.
NOW - SCHOOL ASSEMBLIES
John now makes his living as “The School Assembly Entertainer”. His love for children and magic gave him the idea to combine the two with AMAZING SCHOOL ASSEMBLIES, programs that educate, inspire and entertain school age children with comedy, magic and a touch of insanity. John’s recently performed for Daryl Hannah, Tommy Lee, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, and Natasha Henstridge, just to name a few. His regular clients include Ronald McDonald House, Mattel, Landmark Realty, Honda, Toyota, Boy Scouts of America, Los Angeles & Orange County Library Systems, Office Depot and just about every school district in So Cal. John now performs about 400 (I know it sounds crazy, and it is) programs a year and loves every minute of it. His finest role is as father to his two daughters, Juna and Lily.
