Armed with only an Omni-chord and a microphone, Ross takes the tragic trials of his own life and transforms them into a peculiar, yet genuine presentation,
Although being the first methadone-addicted child born in the great state of California, Ross’ successes reach far beyond the drug-addicted womb of his now late mother.
Before entering the realm of stand-up comedy John embarked on three U.S. tours with two separate musical acts, Anguish Unsaid and Like David. Ross played guitar for both bands, selling over 30,000 units through Santa Cruz based Christian indie record label, Bettie Rocket Records. Anguish Unsaid shared the stage with such bands as Suicidal Tendencies, 7 Seconds, P.O.D., and ZAO, while releasing two full-length albums in 1999 and 2002. Their music was also featured on Fox Sports Net’s Blue Torch program.
After only six-months of doing stand-up comedy, Ross was invited to perform at the world famous Impov in Hollywood, with the Heavy Hitters of Comedy and the Rebels of Comedy. He has since performed at clubs all over the West Coast, opening up for acts such as Norm Macdonald, Nick Swardson and Mike Meehan.
Ross will also be hosting G-ROCK (skate/snow/music) (www.grock.com) later this year.
