About John Lory
IN ASSOCIATION WITH JO MARTIN MANAGEMENT
When it comes to the world of stand-up comedy, it will not take you long to hear the name John Lory. From a very early age, this young man was destined to spend his life doing one thing, and one thing only…. making people laugh! John’s professional career began in the early 90’s, perfecting his trade in the pubs and clubs around the South Coast, leading to several years performing for all the major UK holiday chains and hotels, along with some of the most prestigious theatres in the country. Since those early days, John’s talent has taken him worldwide, performing to audiences in over 30 countries, including South Africa, America and Dubai, whilst writing with, and working alongside some of the biggest names in the industry.
In 2009, whilst back on British soil, John broke onto the ‘after dinner’ scene, and now, with tailor-made material expertly delivered in his own inimitable style, is one of the most sought after comedians on the circuit today. His ability to effortlessly adjust to any environment makes him the perfect choice for sporting and golf day dinners, Rotary and Round Table events, general cabaret evenings and themed comedy nights.
His success has been attributed to two things. A raw natural ability, along with a totally unique approach to comedy, enabling him to be one of the very few comedians who manages to bridge the gap between mainstream and alternative humour. From a delightfully cheeky ‘family-friendly’ show to a more risqué set for his ‘adult only’ nights, John grabs his audience from the moment he walks on stage, and, with masterful style and razor-sharp material timed to perfection, captivates them till the moment he leaves. Simply put, John Lory is a very funny man, and anyone who has seen him work will agree that it is his sheer force of personality and audience contact that makes him quite literally, ‘the face of comedy today’!
