BackgroundEdit

John Wing is from Canada. He grew up in a small town where it was not feasible to do comedy. Eventually, he moved to Los Angeles. A few years later, he had become a drug addict. Because he stopped being funny for a year or two, he gave up drugs.

John Wing's comedy career spans over two decades and includes six Tonight Shows, nine Just For Laughs Comedy festivals, Five Winnipeg Comedy festivals, and over 150 television appearances. He can be heard on CBC radio's The Debaters, and is a contributor to Definitely Not The Opera. Last year he created, co-wrote, and starred in the CBC radio sitcom, Man, Woman, & Child. A regular performer in Las Vegas, as well as cruise ships all over the world, John is also a the author of the comedy memoir, When You See The Red Light, Get Off. 1

AuditionEdit

John Wing's audition was never televised. It is unknown whether or not he was buzzed, but at least three judges voted "Yes," sending him to the Vegas Round.

Vegas RoundEdit

John Wing was sorted into the "Comedian" category in the Vegas Round. His performance in Episode 808 consisted of joking about the differences in parenting from his father, who grew up during the Depression, and himself, a modern father, such as modern dads giving kids time-outs and his dad taking a time-out from being exhausted beating him up. John's performance was strong enough for the judges to send him to the Quarterfinals along with Taylor Williamson in Episode 809.
