A speaker with a difference - that's Liverpool's Johnny Kennedy.
Johnny is a very funny man. This is the view of the companies all over the UK and abroad who have been greatly entertained by this very talented comedian.
Johnny's approach as a comedian\after dinner speaker is refreshingly different and his skill as an ad-libber is legendary. He adopts the persona of a bewildered scouser and gets right amongst his audience to draw some of his comedy from the people present and picks up on the atmosphere of the occasion.
His great success is confirmed by the number of re-bookings he receive.
A former schoolteacher and a great Shakespeare fanatic, he has had his own chat show on Liverpool's Radio City for over 14 years and has appeared at the London Palladium, the Royal Festival Hall and many of the country's top theatres.
He also appeared on "The Comedians" on Granada TV.
For his services to the community, he was awarded the Liverpool Echo Gold Medal, which reflected his great commitment to charity.
It is someone special who can make grown men cry with laughter whilst avoiding dirty, sick or racist jokes. The phone has not stopped ringing since Saturday. Everyone will remember my Charter and will certainly not forget Johnny. The night was completed with Johnny staying for a few drinks when guests were able to chat freely with him and it was noted that he made the effort to have a good chat with some of the targets of his humour. That is the type of guy he is." - John Padley, Rushen (Isle of Man) Round Table No 1072.
