On the stand-up comedy scene, Johnny has had sold out shows at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. He has won several Stand up comedy competitions including the Anglers Tavern 'Angling For A Laugh' hosted by Russell Gilbert and first prize in the same year in the Comics Lounge 'So You Think You're Funny'' (2004).
Johnny was also a support act for American Comedian Dave Chappelle at the Boston Comedy Club in New York City (2004).
'... the frontrunner is Kats for his original style... big laughs' (The Age Newspaper)
'His angles are hilariously inspired...' (... Spoonfed, London)

Addy van der Borgh has that rare talent of making people laugh as soon as he walks on stage. He is a great performer of highly acclaimed and original material, an ability noticed immediately by the BBC when he appeared on the Stand-up Show on BBC1 after only one year as a comedian. He has subsequently appeared on Live At The Comedy Store for Comedy Central, Live At Jongleurs and The World Stands Up for Sky TV and the BBC3 series from Baby Cow Productions, Brain Candy. He has also written and co-presented twenty episodes of TV Meltdown for Sky 1 with Kirsty Gallacher (2004 / 2005), has acted in a number of voiceovers for radio and television and has appeared on many radio shows including the legendary Loose Ends on Radio 4.
'An unassuming comic genius' (Metro)
'Brilliant natural clown' (The Daily Telegraph)
'... van der Borgh can reel off cracking gags and compete with the best freestylers such as Ross Noble' (Evening Standard)
'An excellent stand-up with intelligence and wit' (The Guardian)
Addy Van Der Borgh tour dates
Much in demand as an act, Alistair Barrie has forged a reputation for himself as one of the top comperes to emerge in recent years. His deceptively friendly and engaging stage presence masks a sharp, dry wit which can be turned to subjects as diverse as suicide bombers in the Middle East to the perils of flying EasyJet.
Despite a fondness for topical material, any performance is likely to be peppered with some inspired silliness and a little audience-related improvisation.
'Eloquent, slick and dynamic' (http://www.Chortle.co.uk)
'One of the circuit's classiest stand ups’ (London is Funny)
'Smart, slick and truly funny. Don't take my word for it, check him out yourself’ (Bruce Dessau, Beyond The Joke)
'Barrie has a casually sardonic sense of humour and is sharp as a guillotine blade. Woe betide the bloody fool who tries to heckle him' (Cape Town Argus).
Alistair Barrie tour dates
He has appeared on numerous TV shows such as Punt And Dennis, Jo Brand's Through The Cakehole and Harry Hill. In addition to touring the country with his stand-up comedy, he has starred as part of Eddie Izzard's Improv team and has numerous radio credits on BBC and commercial radio.
'... like a bottle of HP sauce - fat, brown and fruity!' (Loaded)
'Likeable fast thinking Londoner' (London Evening Standard).
