Monkey Barrel Comedy (MB1)
The critically acclaimed Canadian comedian John Hastings launches his first UK tour with highly acclaimed hour of stand up: 'John Hastings: Do You Have Any Ointment My John Hastings?'.
The Scotsman described John as “a charismatic storyteller” and The List called him "a skilled improviser as well as a honed stand-up". 'Do You Have Any Ointment' deals with all the challenges life has thrown at him since his last show in 2019. Coming direct from the Edinburgh Fringe where it was one of the best reviewed shows and nearly had a totally sold out run.
Currently residing in Los Angeles, John has had a rough couple of years after continually being punched in the balls by life! When not turning tragedy into jokes, John appeared on Comedy Central, BBC 3 (when it was a TV Channel the first time), Radio 4 and on America’s Got Talent!
