John is a born and bred Melbournian who has had a passion (some say addiction) for live entertainment all his life. John spends well above the average time gracing the front rows of everything from Broadway style productions to live pub bands and everything in between including comedy and magic shows, circus and sporting events of all sorts.
John grew up in Richmond watching live bands at the Corner and the Espy and remembers the Comedy Festival from its early beginnings over 30 years ago. He now lives in central Southbank close to so many arenas and theatres and enjoys the “live” aspect of all entertainment and the vitality of being there in the moment.
For years John has had a simple but effective way of assessing shows that he has shared with family and friends, rating each show on a scale of 1-10. Watch for his ratings during the MICF.
