A lively and animated storyteller, John Bush has spent his life on stage making people laugh at him, with him, and thus at ourselves. John’s comedic ‘tool-box’ is filled with impressions, characters, and the ability to connect us all to a moment. Best of all, John ends his show with some of the best shadow-puppets you will ever see. Some of these shadows are down-right ‘cartoony’ and others are eye-catching in how they look exactly like the real animal.
As a child, John moved from Hawaii to Minnesota. When people ask him why in the world would anybody make that move, John answers “Oh, because my entire family is…stupid.” Against that back-drop John had to develop a sense of humor and decided to take up stand-up. His career has taken him to New York where he cut his teeth in one of the world’s strongest comedy scenes. John continues to delight audience across the U.S. and abroad. You are in for a blast when John Bush performs at your special event.

"Wow! What a great show! John's interaction with the crowd had everyone's attention from the minute he took the stage. People were still talking about him on Monday when we returned to the office. His many stories resonated with so many that it felt very personal, but very funny. Not only was the show a class act, but the communication with John prior to event was great as well. He stayed in touch along the way so there was no doubt in our mind we had the right person to perform for our party. Thank you John! You were fantastic!"
-Kristi from Iowa
"I just wanted to take an opportunity to tell you how impressed we were with John Bush's performance Friday night at our company Christmas party. He was wonderful to work with before the event, communication was excellent. When I arrived at the event center to start our set up process, John was already finished with his. He even shared some comedic advice with our staff presenter, which gave her the opportunity to earn a few laughs of her own! He had our employees laughing throughout the evening and amazed that adults love shadow puppets too. We cannot thank GLBerg enough for sending us the perfect act year after year."
