    An Hour With Johnny Dark

    in Comedy

    Johnny Dark, comedian, actor, singer, producer, may now be best known for appearing on “The Late Show with David Letterman.” Most recently Johnny created a mini series about Abraham Lincoln called “Johnny Dark’s Lincoln,” which he has now turned this mini series into a one-man show following the life of Lincoln from birth to his untimely death.

    Johnny grew up in New Jersey where he got his first taste of show business shining shoes outside nightclubs. It was there he shined Johnnie Ray’s shoes and got to watch his show at the Manor Supper Club. This sparked an interest in music.  Before getting into comedy, Johnny teamed up with Paul Lowden to create a music show. Together they got a 10-week gig in the Carnival Lounge at the Ed Torres’ Fremont Hotel in Las Vegas. Johnny would play the drums and sing while Paul played the organ.

    After his stint in Las Vegas, Johnny moved to Los Angeles to further pursue music. However, after a trip to The Comedy Store on Sunset Boulevard Johnny fell in love with comedy. At The Comedy Store he got to learn stand-up along side his peers Jay Leno, David Letterman, and Robin Williams.


    Johnny began his comedy career appearing in feature films such as Rip-Off with Michael Benet, Night Patrol with Linda Blair and Pat Paulsen, Smart Alex with Steve Oedekerk. In 2006, he started as a regular on “The Late Show with David Letterman” where he appeared as several characters including the oldest CBS page, B.J. Twain, and President Abraham Lincoln. He continued this role as a regular for 4 years.

    Not only has Johnny appeared in many comedic roles, but he has also gone on comedy tours with other great entertainers, such as Shirley MacLaine, Ginger Rogers, Pat Paulsen, and Engelbert Humperdink.
