Johnny Cardinale began his comedy career at the world famous Comedy Store in Hollywood, CA, where he was spotted by the owner, Mitzi Shore, and given weekly spots on her line-up alongside comedians such as: Carlos Mencia, Chris Rock, Joe Rogan, to name a few, as well as a nationwide tour with Pauly Shore. He has since gone on to perform at all the major clubs in Los Angeles, write and direct a short film that screened at Cannes (American Beauty X, which can be viewed at Ifilm.com) and has hosted Clean Shots on the Game Show Network. He was also featured on the Emmy Awards in a spoof of the hit show Heroes, and was featured on Chelsea Lately on the E! channel. In his stand-up act, he observes a lot of absurdities in life and talks quite a bit about his family. Johnny also brings his guitar with him to poke fun at the music industry as he can sound like seemingly any musical artist. Often compared to Adam Sandler and Jimmy Fallon, Johnny’s act is clean, upbeat and hilarious.
