John is a unique and brutally funny voice in the world of comedy, carving out his turf as he headlines comedy clubs and rock music venues across America.

This, ladies and gentlemen… is badass stand up comedy. Delivering an original stable of material born from logic and ego fighting side by side. The John McClellan live show offers the stream-of-consciousness of a child on Santa Claus’ lap, the confidence of a prizefighter and the power of a punk band without ever leaving your seat. A grand prizewinner of The Seattle International Comedy Competition, as well as a finalist in the San Francisco Comedy Competition and the World Series Of Comedy, McClellan has opened in concert for acts such as David Lee Roth and Collective Soul as well as being a featured performer at The Pensacola Comedy festival.
