Harry Hill and Friends: Union Chapel, Islington, London, 2015
Always Be Comedy (2 shows): The Tommyfield pub, Kennington, London, 2017
John Kearns appeared as a guest act at Harry Hill and Friends at the Union Chapel in 2015 and has appeared twice at Always Be Comedy in London in 2017.
Kearns is clearly a talented performer but what he does on stage is hard to explain. It is very bizarre comedy and there are very few jokes and yet it is fearless, unique and very funny. Kearn’s slurry, sharp voice, comedy teeth and loud style made it sometimes difficult to hear what he was saying but inspired stories about a massage, a supermarket checkout, a betting shop and a horse race were brilliantly delivered from an inspired act.
