Comedian Joanie Fagan 3 BLONDE MOMS, DISNEY MOVIES/COMMERCIALS, SITCOMS/STANDUP COMEDY TV, FAITH/THE DREW CAREY SHOW, HOST/THE JOANIE SHOW
It has been said, there are only two ways you can go in life after making a mistake. Learn from it and move on or don´t learn from it and and stay where you are. John DeBoer has chosen a third route: Write a joke about it and share it with the masses. His nerve-hitting show flows from the devious side of childhood to the never-ending pressures of our time.
Watching John on stage takes the audience on a roller coaster of seeing their own blunders or faux pas´, and then being compelled to laugh at them. Falling somewhere between "The Next John DeBoer of Comedy", and "the best you can do on short notice", he takes us on a ride we´ve all been on, yet somehow failed to see the humor in the first time through.
