Johnny Cardinale began his comedy career at the world famous Comedy Store in Hollywood, CA, where he was spotted by the owner, Mitzi Shore, and given weekly spots on her line-up alongside comedians such as: Carlos Mencia, Chris Rock, Joe Rogan, to name a few, as well as a nationwide tour with Pauly Shore.

He has since gone on to perform at all the major clubs in Los Angeles, write and direct a short film that screened at Cannes ("American Beauty X" which can be viewed at and has hosted “Clean Shots” on the Game Show Network. ??He was also featured on the Emmy Awards in a spoof of the hit show “Heroes”, and has been featured on “Chelsea Lately” on the E! channel.

In his stand-up act, he observes a lot of absurdities in life and talks quite a bit about his family. Johnny also brings his guitar with him to poke fun at the music industry as he can sound like seemingly any musical artist. Often compared to Adam Sandler and Jimmy Fallon, Johnny's act is clean, and upbeat. A review from a recent college show pretty much sums it up best:

“…The similarity between Cardinale and Sandler is their expert use of music as a satirical device, but the similarities end there. Sandler’s pieces are characteristically off-color and border on offensive to just about everybody. Cardinale, with his uncanny ability for mimicking an artist’s vocal style, is the better satirist, using the songs’ very lyrics to point out how foolish some things really are while simultaneously keeping the show PG-13.“
