Chaplin in the Chaplin Biography for Japan. On T.V. John was
seen recently in “To Tell the Truth” as The Banana Man

Celebrities, Schools and much, much more...
now makes his living as “The School Assembly Entertainer”. His
love for children and magic gave him the idea to combine the two
with AMAZING SCHOOL ASSEMBLIES, programs that
educate, inspire and entertain school age children with comedy,
magic and a touch of insanity. John’s recently performed for
Daryl Hannah, Tommy Lee, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, and Natasha
Henstridge, just to name a few. His regular clients include
Ronald McDonald House, Mattel, Landmark Realty, Honda, Toyota,
Boy Scouts of America, Los Angeles & Orange County Library
Systems, Office Depot and just about every school district in So
Cal. John now performs about 400 (I know it sounds crazy, and
it is) programs a year and loves every minute of it. His finest
role is as father to his two daughters, Juna and Lily.
