A flirtatious, lyrical lothario and seasoned comic raconteur, Stage Door Johnny has audiences grinning, giggling and eating from the palm of his hand - sometimes literally. He can be heard singing everything from Shirley Bassey to Guns 'n' Roses, as well as ridiculous self-penned medleys which showcase his razor-sharp wit.
