Johnnie Casson has become a legend amongst comedians the length & breadth of Britain and has found a popularity envied by many bigger name performers. A unique style of delivery, some clever material and an exceptional warmth, this dynamic and genuinely funny Yorkshire man, with the “mixed-up metaphors”, has a very natural asset – “like-ability”, illustrated within minutes of him commencing his original blend of comedy when smiles and titters soon turn to uncontrollable laughter.
Johnnie’s first appearance on ITV’s “Des O’Connor Tonight” was so succesful it was followed by a further 4 appearances. This continued on the daytime TV Des & Mel, with Johnnie being booked on 4 occassions. Johnnie has appeared on five “Des O’Connor Tonight” shows, four “Des & Mel” shows, two shows with Bruce Forsyth from the London Palladium. Johnnie has guested on Game Shows, Chat shows and appearances on many entertainment shows for all major television channels, including his own half hour show on Sky One.
Bruce Forsyth so enjoyed John’s act he asked for him to be a guest on his 70th birthday show which was broadcast live from the London Palladium. From this ITV asked Johnnie to appear in the series of “Sunday Night At the London Palladium”
