Johnny Bagpipes Johnston Testimonials

He kept the crowd laughing for the entire length of his performance… He poked fun at things everyone could relate to. When he played the bagpipes, we heard such a wonderful variety of sounds, good entertainment indeed.General Motors of Canada

Not only is Johnny a very funny guy, he is a very warm man who always puts others first. We are indeed lucky to have Johnny as a Canadian comic; even more fortunate to have him as a fellow citizen.Edmonton Journal

Your amusing act and quick humor fit in well with the current health care climate and left everybody in attendance laughing. Your performance was enjoyed by all. Your clever combination of humor, music and acting were just what the doctor ordered.Alberta Medical Association

Not only did he fill the bill and live up to our expectations he was simply outstanding. Our group was a tired lot from their days activities however Johnny quickly energized them with his material and affable delivery.Scotiabank

His routine was fresh, upbeat and highly entertaining. Needless to say, the meeting attendees thoroughly enjoyed the program.Portland Cement Association

Thank you so much for making our three days of “Delta Celebrations”such a success. I am sure it is not easy to make 1,500 bankers laugh three nights in a row but you had them in stitches! Even the executives, who saw every show, were still laughing on the third night. We were in desperate need of a good laugh and you delivered much more than that! You were exactly what we needed.CIBC
