He’s the common, average, middle-of-the-road guy that just happens to be endowed with bitingly acerbic material when he’s performing on stage. Despite his fantastic stage presence, Karry English still has to deal with the woes of middle-class living. Girl problems, making ends meet, keeping his family together, getting through life; all the tropes of our everyday normal lives lived out through the eyes of a comedian.
Kerry saved the day by taking our last minute request and running with it.
He was prompt, courteous and funny.
Response from Karry English:
Thank you sir, I was more than happy to help!
Karry never fails to crack me up. His jokes are always funny and full of wit. i had the pleasure of going to school with him as we grew up and its good to see his career get off the ground. Karry is one of the funniest people i know and he is also a damn good artist.
Kerry was part of a group of comedians that I had the privilege of meeting at one of my first performances. It was definitely a hard act to follow, but I learned a lot from Kerry and would be honored and really look forward to working with him again in the future!
I had the experience to perform with Karry English at the Big Easy on 25 May 2012 and he was absolutely BRILLIANT!! As a comic to another comic I was impressed with his material, delivery, and how he kept the audience engaged with his set. He is an excellent comic that is going places.
Karry's a funny guy. Whether he's working clean or getting dirty, he has a keen observational eye. He gets in deep, turns subjects on their head, finds the funny and delivers the laughs in a laid back style that audiences love. Highly recommended.
Response from Karry English:
Thanks for the kind words Govna that is the most flattering compliment this old southern scouse could ever hope to get!
I booked Karry for a show last month in Ocean Springs and was incredibly surprised with how well he handled the crowd and kept their attention. His jokes were all top notch and he was the nicest guy ever. I was happy to put him in the beginning, he really warmed up the crowd. -Derek
Response from Karry English:
Derek was a great host and I really enjoyed performing at his club and I cannot wait to return and rock the place again!
...and I liked it. I'm a New Orleans comic and have been doing comedy all over the country for a number of years. I am also the MOST Powerful Lez. Karry is a great comic to work with. Professional. As a comic he does everything he's supposed to and he's good at it. The crowd loves this guy. Other comics love this guy. I recommend him, I commend him, but I did not rear end him.
Response from Karry English:
Mac Harde it was an honor to work with you and I cannot wait to see you perform again! LEZ POWER!!!
From the beginning to the end, this Guy tore it up!!! I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a show so much. For all of you that weren't able to attend, you really missed out. But your not gonna want to miss the next one.(
Man he was too funny. I thought I was going to use the bathroom on myself from laughing. He killed it I would pay hundreds just to do it again. Love you dawg you did your thing.
I love this guy. I could watch/listen to him for hours. One of the funniest comedians around. He is the best southern comedian by far.
THIS GUY!!! I've been to many of the shows that Karry English has been a part of and let me tell you, he is a great comedian with an extreme amount of potential. From going to many of his shows, I have seen his development and ability to switch his style up and still remain the same person with the same voice and style...awkwardly enough. I personally, think its from his roots and heritaige. He openly proclaims and accepts his Southern and British roots which makes for a unique blend of Southern eloquence with a British twang! Needless to say...Karry English is a need to see comedian who I can't wait to see blossom into international star! Go check him out! it'll definately be worth your time and money!
Karry English is a professional comedian period. I have seen his performances at different venues around town and he is very funny! His material is hilarious, irreverent, and cerebral. There is something for all audiences in his performances.
Karry has a unique view of things and makes one feel better about themselves. Having viewed several of his performances I must admit he is one that will go far. Mixing styles between old and new subjects, it is a cross section of who he is.
I actually work with Karry. When I first met him and he told me he was a comedian I could tell he would be funny doing stand-up. After seeing his performance, his ability to make uncomfortable subject matter funny was hilarious. My husband and I laughed out loud through the performance and can't wait to see him up on stage in the flesh.
With a smooth and comforting delivery in concert with a broad, accessible collection of bitingly acerbic material, Karry knows how to handle his proverbial business.
He's a pretty deceptive cat. You really can't tell which direction his bits are heading until you get to the end and you're guffawing in an uncomfortably obnoxious manner.
In summation, he's a funny son of a bitch.
I have known this guy for awhile and watch his comedy intricately develop as well as he has helped me ascend from a opener rookie comic to a distinguished stand-up comedian. Karry 'English' has a wide range of interests that he imposes onto his audience clandestinely. He appears to be a laid back clean comic upon delivary and right when your relaxed a deeper darker punchline unfolds entrapping his audience attention. K. is all around impressively hilarious and truly walks the line in between clean and dark comedy
Hilarious material and very good set. Great show can't wait to see him again!
I saw Karry English do his routine, and I was imposed by his performance. I liked his material, style, and laid back approach. I look forward to future performances from him.
love working with him he is deffently a professionl. He is one of those comics that have you saying Woooow i needed that laugh....I really Look forward to seeing him rip the Mic at the roast of comedian Tiebo!!
Karry's comedy is the real deal. Nothing is off limits. Forget political correctness. The truth is funny and you will find both in his humor. A young man with an old (albiet funny) soul.
Karry's performance was the greatest comedy show I have ever seen,
This guy's got chops. His material is smart and solid. He's a natural on stage with an engaging demeanor you can't help but like. And most importantly, he's funny!
Accidently walked in on one of Karry's sets while on vacation and was pleasantly surprised. While he is still relatively new to the world of stand-up comedy, he has a truthful, well thought out approach to his material and delivery that is well beyond his years of experience. I see him only only becoming a stronger force in the comedy scene in the next few years. He also was very willing to speak with audience members after the show which I would like to think that most promoters would love.
Karry is a very clever comedian who uses his witty style to capture his audience. Karry pokes fun at all aspects of life and it's situations in a way that one would never think of, let alone say. He has the ability to rip through undertones and covert behaviors in a way no one else can. His analysis of life and its situations is hilarious to say the least. Karry is definitely a talented comedian who will keep you laughing.
Everyone these days is so worried about being politically correct and not hurting someone's feelings that they forget that comedy is an out of body experience. When you go to a comedy club you should let your guard down and be ready to laugh at inappropriate material. In an era of political correctness, over sensitivity, and diluted comedy, it refreshing to listen to someone smart, quick, and down right funny.
Karry is a talented writer and comic. I've done several shows with him and he gets me chuckling every time. His "Matter of Fact" style is blunt and witty. I have seen Karry pull laughs out of even the toughest crowds. This guy has a bright future ahead of him.
Karry Johnson's unique blend style of satire, blue, dark, intelluctual, and observational humor shows why this kid has what it takes to make it to the big time. His stage presence is strong, and unwavering. Looking forward to seeing more from this guy in the future!

What to Expect
My audience can expect for me to present them with facts that are thought provoking, bitingly acerbic, that are sometimes down right awful but also things that you would have never have taken into consideration under normal circumstances.
What you can expect from a Karry English performance is satire at it best, there are no boundaries when it comes to his material. Karry tells it like it is with an unbiased, blunt approach that's tasteful yet provocative. In short with Karry English you always get your money's worth and then some!
