John began performing stand-up comedy at the age of nineteen. In his first few years, John starred in a national comedy special, won the Just for Laughs Home Grown Comedy Competition, finished in the finals of the Seattle International Comedy Competition, and shot two more Canadian stand-up specials for Canadian national television. All before the age of 25.
John has performed in the Just for Laughs Festival Gala where he won over the crowd and was touted as saving the show.
John then went on to win the Corner Gas Comedy contest. Giving him $10 000, and an appearance on Corner Gas with his mentor Brent Butt.
John has opened for the likes of Dennis Miller, Brent Butt, Joan Rivers, Martin Short, Zach Galifianakis, and Craig Ferguson to name a few. John's style has been described as, wickedly funny, fearless and poignant.
John's arsenal of sickly smart comedy is enough to leave any crowd begging for more. He is quickly becoming one of North America's favorite comedians.
"If the TV and movie executives who audit Beuhler don't make him a star, the world will have a lot less laughter in it."
Malcolm Parry, Vancouver Sun
"When it seemed that nothing could go right (at the Just For Laughs Gala) John Beuhler, a young, unheralded, Canuck comic took the stage. He slayed, and save the night."
Bill Brownstein , Montreal Gazette
"Bill Maher, Margaret Cho, and Bill Cosby. John Beuhler is neither a big name nor an American-he is, in fact, a local-but he's just as funny as they are."
Guy MacPherson, Georgia Straight
"I don't see why he doesn't go to school and become a doctor. He would still be funny, but this way he would also have a reliable income. Nothing says you can't be a doctor or lawyer and still do stand-up."
