John Tole is an international touring comic and tattooed metalhead. Raised on a steady diet of 80s punk and thrash, John rails against the hypocrisy of state control and succeeds in exposing the false idol of political correctness. He is a hard charging comic who is able to bring audiences together despite a wide variety of divisive topics.
Nicknamed the “Slayer of Comedy”, John is a stand out in the Sold Out Ronnie Mund Block Party Tour(Howard Stern Show) and continues to reign in laughs. John appears on the “Behind The Scenes” show on Howard TV and has written and contributed to The Howard Stern Show and Miserable Men radio show and can be heard on Howard 100, Howard 101 and Sirius Raw Dog Channel 104 as well as his own weekly podcast, “John Tole’s America.”
John has toured and worked with many nationally renowned comedians including Jim Florentine, Jim Norton, Robert Kelly, Joe Rogan, Ari Shaffir, and Jim Jefferies. John was also the face and host of the Moontower Comedy Festival’s Blue Show for 2012 and 2013.
