  • Overview

    John Paul Morgan was born in 1964 & raised in New Orleans. The cultural, political & economic diversity of that city laid the groundwork for his development as a performer. John is 1 of 9 kids & after high school he attended the University of Southwestern Louisiana (now University of Louisiana Lafayette) where he earned degrees in English, Political Science & Interpersonal Communications. It was during his college career that John discovered he had the gift of comedy.

    After working as the Director of Marketing for a group of psychiatric hospitals in his native Louisiana, John decided that the best way to use his comedic/communication skills was to bring himself to the masses.

    John has worked steadily at comedy clubs, corporate events & musical arenas. He has made national TV appearances on MTV, Showtime & Night Watch with Charlie Rose. He has been the opening act for Kathleen Madigan, Michael Bolton, The Monkeys, Ronnie Cole, Jerry Seinfeld & Helen Reddy.

    John's confident demeanor & honest approach to life is refreshingly original. John dares to talk boldly about real issues. Whether he is speaking about children or relationships, his comedy comes from the heart. Although his material may push some limits, it is never derogatory to any race, sex or creed.

    In addition to his stand up career John specializes in motivational speaking & couples counseling. During these engagements John leaves out some of the humor & injects this with feelings. This gives audiences a new perspective & a change in attitudes. He helps people see the meaning behind the message. So whether it's a specialized group or a night at the comedy club, this Ragin' Cajun is as swet as a honey glazed ham & as hot as a Tabasco chili pepper.

    He now resides in Plaquemine, Louisiana with his wife Lori, two sons & adopted daughter from Mainland, China. John & his family live in true Louisiana style, dwelling in a 1903 Plantation called Homestead. 

    When not at home playing such roles as husband, papa, handyman, spiderman, or power ranger, John travels the country doing comedy.

    John Morgan is most happy at home with his family and friends. He enjoys the culture, food and lifestyle he grew up with. When not in this setting, it's the comedy stage that he feels most comfortable on.
