Only you will be in on the secret when you hire the Funny Waiter John Park to pose as one of the regular servers during mealtime. Your guests will experience the funniest and most eccentric service they've ever had.

John Park has had a wide-ranging career that has taken him from Hollywood, where he appeared on HBO's award-winning "Larry Sanders Show" starring Garry Shandling, to Las Vegas, where he performed in "Splash" at the Riviera Hotel and Casino on the Strip.

At the invitation of the late Bill Graham, John opened for Huey Lewis and the News, The Grateful Dead, and the Jerry Garcia Band. He's performed on Persian rugs in Saudi Arabia for ex-pat oil workers, and even taken his act to sea, where he's played for the passengers of the SS Azure Seas as well as Senator Dianne Feinstein on a historic schooner, the Dolph Remp.

John's engaging performances have won over audiences like top executives at Microsoft and IBM, for whom he's put together corporate shows, Ontario television viewers who were lucky enough to catch John on CityTV's Breakfast Television, and festival-goers around the world, including attendees at the New Zealand Festival of the Arts, the legendary Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and the Moers Comedy Festival in Germany, where John wowed the audience for eight straight hours as the festival's emcee.

Show Description

WHY JOHN PARK?
At Your Next Corporate Event, John will:

  • Tailor the Show to Your Group with Insider Info:
    Before his appearance, John will quiz you on industry buzzwords, company jargon, and hot topics particular to your group. Equipped with this insider info, John ad-libs cutom one-liners for big laughs amid his hilarious set pieces.

  • Turn Your People into Comedy Stars:
    Before the show you'll also be asked to point out well-known personalities in the audience so John will know which people to "randomly" pick as volunteers. And it will be these partners in comedy - not John - who will be getting the biggest laughs of the night. You see, long ago John discovered his audience would go wild when his volunteers occasionally one-upped him on stage. So John purposefully created routines in which his volunteers always upstaged him. The result? Stardom for the volunteer, big laughs for the crowd, and a shared experience that will be talked about for years.

  • Deliver Ultra Clean Corporate Comedy with Universal Appeal:
    Have you ever been burned by a comic delivering off-color material at a corporate venue? That will never happen with John. His material is ultra clean. Always has been. Always will be. Plus, John's visual brand of comedy transcends different backgrounds, geographies, and demographics. Everyone in your audience will enjoy it.

THE FUNNY WAITER SHOW

Are you looking for a comedy waiter act with a spectacular plate spinning finish? Then be sure to check out the Funny Waiter Show. This plate spinner is not a rude waiter. Instead he gets his laughs - as much as any stand up comic or comedian - with original comedy routines involving food, drink, music, and more. Also, don't forget to ask about the HOAX WAITER LEAD-IN OPTION during dinner. Based in Toronto and Michigan - Travels Anywhere.

Eat... See marshmallows become airborne appetizers! John pairs off with a volunteer. Ten steps are paced off. They turn, and each throws a marshmallow to their opponent. Who will catch one in their mouth first? Can you stand the suspense? A never fail routine!

Drink... But please don't spill. That big yellow wet floor sign is unsightly but necessary. The epic water drinking duel is always a crowd favorite! Who's feeling parched? Nothing quenches a thirst like a bottle of cool clear water. Imported, of course. Savor every last drop.

...& Laugh, Laugh, Laugh! The Funny Waiter is very proud to present a classic routine some thought was lost to the ages. Plate Spinning! Nine at once! One of the most exciting finales ever has been given a comedy makeover with non-stop laughs. Please note: Due to the intense concentration needed for this extravaganza The Funny Waiter will insist that all cell phones be turned off. Did he remember his own?

The HOAX WAITER LEAD-IN OPTION

Only you will be in on the secret when you hire the Funny Waiter to pose as one of the regular servers during mealtime. Your guests will experience the funniest and most eccentric service they've ever had. See eyebrows raised as the Funny Waiter steals from the buffet, helps himself to the wine, falls asleep on the job, and creates comic mischief. For the icing on the cake, after the meal you can announce the regular entertainment is a no-show. Can anyone else help? The Funny Waiter eagerly volunteers.

THE COMEDY & JUGGLING SHOW

Comedy, comedy, comedy. That's what this act is all about. But John Park is no joke-telling stand-up comic. Instead, this performer uses clever juggling and visually engaging comedy routines set to music to make his audience laugh. The crowd is with John all the way - even on stage, as volunteers take part and challenge John laugh for laugh for the comedic spotlight.

Non-Stop Comedy!
Don't be fooled by the picture to the right. This talented showman may look confused, but that's only acting. Any professional funnyman knows never to step on a joke and wait as long as needed for the LAUGHS to subside. (John definitely practices this professional technique often!)

Kung Fu? Not in this show. But you will see the flying marshmallows, scarf dancing, the water routine and other unusual and funny things that make this comedy and juggling show so ORIGINAL AND STYLISH. (Check out that blue jacket!)

The performance finishes with a real showstopper: Aided by two able-bodied volunteers, John mounts a 6-foot unicycle, juggles three clubs, and, with a comic commentary running the whole time, throws the last club under his leg - the crowd goes wild! The Comedy & Juggling Show pays off big: big laughs, big tricks, and a big, big finish!
