Johnny Gardhouse '90
• Entertainment

Johnny Gardhouse has always been fascinated by the arts, especially acting and writing. These two talents were put on display throughout his five years at Ridley. At university, Johnny performed stand-up comedy during his first open mic night and was immediately hooked. After university, he moved to Toronto to pursue acting and stand-up full-time, and in 1993 he was the runner-up in the Peoples Comedy Festival search for Canada’s funniest comedian.
 
Still working in the entertainment business, Johnny holds several different positions. He offers contract work for major events, such as the Juno Awards, MMVA’s, and Canada’s Walk of Fame, among others. This contract work involves mostly site management and Red Carpet production. He has also been the co-owner of Hell Creek Entertainment with fellow OR Scott Rondeau ’90 for a number of years. They specialize in film and television production. Even with his busy schedule, Johnny still tries to find time to do stand-up comedy. He has a number of great clips and highlights that can be found on YouTube.
 
With his wide array of experience within the entertainment industry, Johnny would make a great mentor for anyone looking to enter this field.
