After nearly a decade working in film production and academia, even briefly as a professor, John Cessna is a fresh face in Midwestern comedy and is already gaining a large following. His story-telling style details a life misspent obsessing over 90s nostalgia, whiskey-fueled adventures, and the general absurdity of being an “adult.”

John has been featured at the Limestone Comedy Festival, Laughfest, and was a finalist in the Bob & Tom All-Star Comedy Contest.

His yearly humorous Christmas cards have been featured on Buzzfeed, The Huffington Post, and someecards, as well as internationally in the UK, Germany, and Australia. The viral series has garnered a combined total of almost ninety million views online. He’s also the host of “Behind Bars”, a webseries where John travels to universities across the country, learning the traditions, games, and specialty drinks their bars have to offer.
