John Keating started stand-up comedy in Boston during the mid- nineties. Shortly after breaking in, he was named as one of the “best young performers on the Boston comedy scene” by the Boston Herald. John mixes sarcastic wit and an extremely likable persona to entertain and excite even the most inflexible of audiences. Not only is John a favorite in the world of stand-up comedy, but has also studied acting with Dee Wallace in Los Angeles Master Class. John has recently guest starred on ABC’s hit sitcom The Middle.
His original style and unique perspective on topics ranging from his years spent living with his grandparents to the rigors of hiding his “inner geek” from the women he dates has allowed John to perform all over the country, sharing stages with such diverse acts as Dave Chappelle, ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic and music stars Barenaked Ladies
In addition to acting and comedy, John also writes and draws the web comic Breaking the Ice.
