John Mostyn is a Toronto based comedian hailing originally from Glasgow, Scotland. Since moving to Canada, he has quickly emerged himself as one of the most exciting and popular performers in the city. John's storytelling and quick witted fish-out of-water humour has had him likened to other Scottish comedy legends; Billy Connolly and Kevin Bridges. A charming, friendly, and hilarious stand up, he is always a crowd favourite.
John was recently featured in Interrobang's top ten up-and-coming comedians to watch in Canada. His debut album ,'Scottish C*nt', was released in 2022 via Cottage Country Digital, went straight to #1 on the ITunes chart, and was received to great critical acclaim. The Interrobang listed it as #1 Comedy Album in Canada 2022, and legendary comedy reviewer, Glen Sumi, called it his #2 Canadian comedy album of the year.
John has opened up for comedy heavyweights such as Russell Howard, James Adomian, Josh Gondelman, River Butcher, Randy Feltface, Amy Miller, and Matt Braunger. He has performed at Just For Laughs Toronto, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Cottage Comedy Festival, Brantford Comedy Festival, Toronto Sketchfest, Montreal Sketchfest, the United Comedy Festival and more. In 2016 he won the 'Mark Breslin Award for Stand up Comedian of the Year'. John performs nightly in Toronto and regularly performs across Canada and the United States.
