Full Biography

John Vlismas is well known for his outspoken and observational humour. His ability to understand and comment on political, social and economic affairs has earned him a broad and growing corporate client base, as well as invitations to perform in England, Germany, Canada, Ireland, Australia, Botswana, Namibia and Zimbabwe.

John is perhaps a cult figure, taking his particular brand of original, intellectual and wildly risky comedy into everything he does, whether it is clean, complex corporate appearances with highly tailored material, the no-holds-barred material that ignites his public appearances, or the thought through outrage he often presents on radio to provoke robust debate.

He holds the rare distinction of being the only South African stand-up comic to have performed at The Royal Albert Hall, The Hammersmith Apollo, The Lyric Theatre - Shaftesbury lane and The Best of The Fest showcases in both the Montreal and Melbourne Comedy Festivals. He has shared a line-up with Drew Carey, written dialogue for Jerry Springer, and hosted Chris Rock at his club.
