• BIO:
Johnny Watson is known as one of the funniest and most interesting comedians around today. He’s a “Jersey Kid” born and raised in some of the toughest neighborhoods in the State, inside one of the most unforgiving households in the Universe, “sorry Ma!”

Johnny with his appearances in the Film "The Killing of John Lennon, The Haunted Knights, Death at the Bar," and several others.

He also has TV appearances on "Saturday Night Live, Medieval Times, The Martha Stewart Story."

and his Comedy Special "Functionally Dysfunctional" As you can see, Johnny is Film and Tv ready!

Johnny has a film "Fly Guys" in preproduction!

Johnny is also a Comedy Club favorite. Listen to what they are saying about Johnny!

“Johnny is the funniest comedian I have ever seen...Johnny always gets the job done... He is money in the bank every time!”
Gordon Mills, Comedy Club Manager

“A lot of comedians are brilliant, but won’t draw a general audience. Johnny Watson is a Great Comedian, who can perform in virtually any place,”
Jeff Jena, Long-time Comedian and Club Manager

Watson has charmed audiences across the United States using his raw talent, honesty and innate ability to explain life’s challenges in his own edgy, yet refreshingly clean style. And when Johnny tells a story it's authentic and relevant.

“Johnny is just like Brian Regan: but edgier”
Bob Perkell, Comedian

"When we look up the definition of “comedy” there should be a picture of Johnny Watson - front-and-center! I’ve known Johnny for a very long time - he’s my brother from another CRAZY-mother! But I’m not being biased - it’s more than that. Johnny personifies what comedy was and still should be. If you’re looking for the perfect comedy script you should read the story of Johnny Watson - his extremely difficult (and yet hilariously funny) journey..... his life.”
Phil Dannunzio, Comedian

As a kid Johnny was accustomed to food stamps, TV Dinners and free lunch programs which transitioned him well for his first few careers, a Navy Seaman, Medieval Times busboy and (un)professional baby photographer.

As Johnny tells it, "I was the poor kid on free lunch who always got my chops busted; since I couldn't fight, I had to be funny."

And he's still funny, very funny, making countless fans laugh until they cry with tales of his family, his absentee (not substance free) father, his unsympathetic mother, and his own juvenile struggles that continue to this day.

“Johnny Watson always makes me laugh.”
Adam Ferrara, Star Comedian

Johnny Watson has appeared at the Comic Strip Live, Dangerfield's Comedy Club, New York Comedy Club, Broadway Comedy Club and The Comedy Store in Los Angeles, among others. He has also appeared in numerous TV, film and theater productions including Saturday Night Live, and the film Killing John Lennon.

Johnny also developed The Johnny Watson Show, the first mother and son podcast with a variety format featuring talented comics and mainstream content.

Johnny is very serious about his art. When he is not on stage, he studies the greats, writes voraciously, and is constantly trying out new material on anyone with ears (much to their delight)!
