"Intelligent and funny." -- Bob Smith, The Glens Falls Chronicle.
"As smart as Bill Maher. Only nicer." -- Susan L. Wolpin
John Briggs first took the stage on Dec. 18, 1986 in front of two drunk college students at a now defunct comedy club in Philadelphia. Since then, John has performed for thousands of drunk audiences at dozens of defunct clubs. And while that might deter some comics, John figures he wasn't always there on the nights they went and closed up shop.
Over the years, John has been seen on Comedy Central and been a contributing writer for The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Nothing Really, and other programs. He's been heard on dozens of radio shows, from the standard call-in programs to the crazy morning zoos. His additional credits include several years as a nationally syndicated reporter (where he interviewed some of comedy's top minds, including George Carlin, Alan Alda, and Leslie Nielsen), and even more years as a freelance joke writer and journalist. He currently writes fro Channel99.com. Every fall, John can be found touring with his political comedy creation, Left-Wing Laughs, a continually updated evening of topical humor.
