"Improvisation can change your life."

John is an illustrator and an improviser comedian. He believes in the power of improvisation skills to create conversation, help us make decisions, and navigate through life.

Since 2020, John has been focusing on building his reputation as an illustrator and teaching the benefits of improvisation for teams. If you know where to look, you can find him at comedy clubs in the guise of his character act, Danny Pensive.

John’s proudest achievement is successfully running a kickstarter campaign to publish his graphic novel ‘Distance’. The book is an illustrated diary of his life during the pandemic and lockdowns as it happened. He is an ambassador for Manchester Road Runners, an amazing bunch of folks who support social running for everyone.
