In Upper Middle Trash, John talks about his loving, dysfunctional family; heroic tales of alcoholism; being a married product of divorce; revenge; and debauchery, to name just a few topics. The product of a "nice guy" dad and an alcoholic mother who, "when she drinks...can say some of the most hateful things ever uttered," John says. "I take after my mother. I'm a bit of a misogynist. Alcoholism and mental illness run rampant in my family on both sides. I'm part Native. That doesn't help."
An equal opportunity offender, John's Comedy transcends racial and cultural barriers appealing to black, white and brown audiences, the young and old, upstanding citizens and the morally bankrupt. With observations that are so on target they will make you laugh until it hurts. John is shrewd, raw and uncompromisingly funny.
