John was terrible. He arrived early which was great but managed to down three drinks before his performance. He lasted a total of 12 minutes before we asked him to leave. He let the F bomb fly 5 minutes into his unfunny act after being told this was a mixed audience of teens and adults. I would not recommend him for any Christmas party or Corporate event...not funny at all. I paid him the full amount agreed upon just to make him stop.

John Powers’s Response:

This party was a collection of the most obnoxious people in town. Not only was there no introduction what-so-ever, but I went up immediately after dinner and a bunch of announcements nobody was paying attention to. The comments above say that I was drinking, but I don't drink alcohol. I had one pepsi. My act is funny, but not to a backwoods town that has never been to another town. After 30 minutes of crowdwork and 5 minutes of material, it was obvious that nobody there wanted to hear comedy. The numbers above are not an accurate representation of last night's performance.
