Johnny was fantastic for our stand-up comic series. Did a hilarious clean show, provided a good opener too. Look forward to having him back in the near future. He fits perfectly into what we are trying to do at our PAC and couldn't recommend him enough.
Johnny Beehner puts on a funny show. He's got everything you want from a comic: He's silly, he's likeable, and he's fun.
With a background in improvisational theater including training at Chicago's prestigious Second City, as well as the Upright Citizens Brigade in Los Angeles, Johnny brings a very unique style to the stage.
Beehner made his network television debut in January of 2015 as one of the last comedians to appear on the Late Show with David Letterman. He has made numerous appearances on FOX "Laughs" television show, and regularly appears on the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Show. His comedy can be heard regularly on XM/ Sirius Satellite radio. Johnny also recently appeared on "Gotham Comedy Live" on AXS tv.

He was named one of Ricky Gervais' Top 5 picks in the "Just Sayin” stand up contest.
Johnny was recently named one of 2015's Top10, "Hot Comics to Watch" by his wife. She says that he would have a shot at the #1 spot if he would “work just a little bit harder”.
He's a married man, a new dad, and his current life goal is to win just one argument with his beautiful wife.
