“Everything he says is funny….he looks like he was born onstage, under a follow spot, with a mic in his hand………………………………………………THE GUARDIAN
“Relaxed and happy to banter with the crowd …the stand out
of the night…………………………..MELBOURNE-THE AGE
“A top comedy turn and a right funny bloke…………THE SUN
One of the best things about watching live comedy is seeing a comedian finally find their comic voice. Some comics never find it, but when one does, there’s no mistaking it. Suddenly, that ordinary bloke behind the mic becomes a cartoon version of himself. Everything he says is funny, and anything that happens to him is more material for his act. It’s partly about finding out who you really are, and how the punters really see you, but the main part remains a mystery. Yet whatever that mystery consists of, John Fothergill has just found it. He’s always been a solid comic, but now he looks like he was born on stage, under a follow spot, with a mic in his hand.
He started out in showbiz in a band called One Hand One Heart, managed by Chas Chandler of Slade,
Animals and Jimi Hendrix fame. They were signed by Epic, then Sony, and after they were dropped, he went to work on a gas rig. It’s my guess that this cocktail of toil and rock’n’roll is what made him a comic. See for yourself.
