Poster of John wearing a suit, sat in a chair, looking very smart ... except that his trouser leg happens to be on fire. He doesn't seem worried at all. The title is John Pendal - How to Escape from Stuff, to advertise his 2017 solo comedy show

Until 2020 I taught workshops at kink events around the world and provided comedy entertainment in the evenings. I've performed solo stand-up comedy shows at events in Atlanta, Bergen, Budapest, Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Edmonton, Fort Lauderdale, Melbourne, Oslo, Rome and West Palm Beach. My last comedy show Monster received 4 five star reviews at the Edinburgh Festival. You can see the show in full here. (18+ age restriction due to content)

I'm now retraining as a kink-friendly life coach online, helping people who feel like outsiders with any area of their life where they feel dissatisfied. The first session is free. Please send a message via the form at if you are interested - or check out my coaching website.

Stay safe and well everyone x x
