John Kearns is an actor, writer and comedian who in 2014 became the first person to win the prestigious Edinburgh Comedy Award only a year after being named Best Newcomer. Since then he has delivered his ‘richly, idiosyncratic comedy’ (The Guardian, 2016) across the world, notably picking up two Melbourne Comedy Barry Award nominations along the way. As well as writing and performing in his own BBC Radio 4 series, Kearns has notably written for Harry Hill, Russell Howard, Aardman and the Bafta winning ‘Psychobitches’. In 2015 Kearns played the lead role in the cult BBC Three sitcom Top Coppers that garnered a four star review from The Times.
‘A true comedy original.’
