Bio

JJ Whitehead’s rangy swagger and fearless, electric wit has charmed audiences around the world.  Disarmingly comfortable, JJ delivers unabashedly personal stories and blistering social satire in a unique performance style that can only come from a North American who cut his comedy teeth in Great Britain.

He has been a welcomed regular on British and Canadian TV; at international comedy festivals and as a headliner at such clubs as The Comedy Store, Jongleurs, Highlight, The Glee Clubs, Manfords and Yuk Yuks.

A favorite at the Edinburgh Festival, his 2016 show ‘Fool Disclosure’ was a hit with audiences and critics alike averaging 4.5 star reviews. Released on Stand Up Records it charted #32 on iTunes and is now available on vinyl.

JJ Whitehead has recently brought his honest, uncensored brand of humor to LA. As well as performing on local stages such as The Improv, he has joined the controversially outspoken Australian comic, Jim Jefferies, on his Daystreaming, Bare and Freedumb tours slaying audiences on the largest stages in the country.
