About John Martin
A John Martin show is full of energy, excitement and class! John is always fresh and up-to-date with his material. This originality coupled with his encyclopedic knowledge of jokes makes him a true master of comedy!
A journalist once described John as a ‘human joke factory’ when he smashed the World Record for continuous joke-telling, which lasted an amazing 101 hours 39 minutes – an incredible feat!
John has an extraordinary gift of ad-lib and he enjoys utilising this talent to the full, often receiving standing ovations for his razor-sharp wit. His ability to do this, with rapier-like speed, has earned John the title ‘The World’s First Interactive Comedian’.
John is a favourite amongst the majority of cruise companies having been asked to perform on the maiden voyages of both the Queen Mary 2 and the Queen Victoria.
Away from comedy, John is a keen military historian. He has recently written a book called The Mirror Caught The Sun, the true story of Operation Anthropoid 1942. This is something John is especially proud of.
