John Schroeck is a comedian based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Some know him for his biting, low energy delivery. Others barely remember him at all.

Instead of working hard in college, John started performing stand up comedy. He graduated anyways, and has a joke (and mountain of student loan debt) to prove it. He now travels the country reminding audiences far and wide exactly how tough it is being a middle class white male in Trump’s America – especially when you’ve got a sweet dog, supportive parents, and a loving partner.

You can see him most frequently on Thursday nights in Cincinnati at Myrtle’s Punch House. He also appears regularly as a feature act at Go Bananas Comedy Club.

John has also been featured at Accidental Comedy FestCrossroads Comedy FestGilda’s LaughFest, and Cincy Brew HaHa and has been fortunate enough to work alongside the likes of Tommy Johnagin, Kyle Kinane and Amy Schumer.

Schroeck is the creator and co-producer of Punch House Comedy and curator for Cincy Stand Up.
