James Johann was born in the Midwest during the 70's era of bell-bottom jeans, wood paneled station wagons and disco music. His childhood upbringing was significantly influenced by country music, countless bad haircuts and heavy doses of Catholic school.
In 1991, after being fired from several 'McJobs', James began his standup career in Kansas City. But don't let James' boyish appearance fool you; he's a more than ten-year veteran of the stand-up comedy circuit. His self-deprecating sense of humor and high-energy style all come together to create a unique onstage persona. James relies more on his brain than the profane; his comedy often hitting upon the universal theme of failure, and providing a truthful and hilarious reflection of life as he sees it.
In July 2004, James performed
in the "New Faces Of Comedy" category at the Montreal Just For Laughs Comedy Festival. James was featured on Comedy Central's Premium Blend which aired in 2005, and in 2008, performed on The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson.
Besides headlining comedy clubs nationwide, James completed the 2003 "Paying For The New Trailer" theater tour starring Jeff Foxworthy & Larry the Cable Guy.
