“Our most successful Club nights in years couldn't have happened without the acts and guidance from Purple Cactus" – Tring Hockey Club


John Warburton

Combining one-liners, observational comedy and the occasional song, John’s routine lends itself to a wide range of clubs and audiences. John is a sure fire hit with any crowd.

John has headlined comedy shows from Doncaster to Dubai, and at lots of places in-between. A regular at all the big weekend clubs around the UK, he is also available for corporate events.

Recently seen on Coronation Street, as Barry Sidwell, John makes his big screen debut in 2009 alongside Robert Carlyle, in big budget action thriller The Tournament.

Before turning to comedy John was a tabloid journalist, although he says he wasn’t very good at it. Which is a shame because he did it for bloody ages.

These days when John’s not performing comedy he writes it, with credits across network TV and radio. If you need something funny writing – John is your man.


John has made numerous appearances in a wide range of TV shows.
In the last 12 months you may have seen or heard him on: TV’s 100 Greatest Comebacks. The Top 100 Christmas Shows; TV’s greatest Wind-ups; Outrageous TV moments; amongst many, many others.

North West Comedian of The Year Winner, 2004
