Episode #64: Johnno Wilson: Comedian/Actor/Impersonator
Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share my podcast with my friend Johnno Wilson—my very first comedian/impersonator/actor! Johnno grew up in Shrewsbury, MA with his parents and younger brother, Pete. He then journeyed onto DC where he attended Georgetown University for college. After college, he decided to enter the corporate world and took a job at a consulting company in DC, and on the side, would pursue acting gigs. At the age of 27, Johnno took a leap of faith to finally pursue his acting career. He packed up and moved to LA, couch surfing and caddying to get by.
Fast forward almost 10 years, he has had a remarkable journey. Johnno tells us about both his setbacks and awesome comebacks, such as his role on Disney’s hit show Raven’s Home, getting called out to two Saturday Night Live auditions, and upcoming Curb Your Enthusiasm episodes this fall! Not to mention, Johnno is also the most incredible impersonator and has been featured on Good Day LA (check out his TikTok account where he has 375K followers and nails impersonations of well-known celebrities such as Vince Vaughan, Matthew McConaughey, Tom Hanks, and many more). I’m so excited to continue to watch Johnno kill it in LA!
