Accountant Turned Comedian

All of this from someone who used to be an accountant. After several years in public accounting being told to "think outside the box", John decided it was better to "live" outside the box.

John has repeatedly proven that accountants are hilarious!
John has been heard on The Bob & Tom Radio Network, seen in concert with Train, opened for Louie Anderson at resort casinos, written about in The New York Times and was named "Best of the Fest" at The Detroit Comedy Festival. Tracks from his debut comedy album, Outside the Box, can be heard on Sirius|XM Satellite Radio.
