Ronnie James Dio throw up the devil horns from beyond the grave,
John Tole is a comedic force of nature. – AMP Magazine

John Tole is a stand up comedian, voice actor, writer, podcaster, life coach, psychonaut and if the money is right a specialist in all things tin foil hat. This Los Angeles based comic weaves tales of self discovery, positive life choices, and seeing the silver lining in every life experience. Audiences love this take no prisoners style and while he may tip toe to the line of edgy he consistently finds the pocket and keeps the audience not only laughing but on the edge of their seat. Tole is your best friend entertaining your relatives in your backyard during a cook out and he takes that same energy and attention and gives each show and audience a one of a kind feel.

CD Reviews for Reign In Laughs
JONE TOLE/Reign in Laughs: Howard Stern fans need no introduction to this punk rock influenced comic but to all outside the satellite realm be warned, this tattooed bad ass is so committedly pomo he looks nothing like the Harvey Kurtzman/Wally Wood nerd nightmare illustrated on the album cover, but he needed something that nutty on the cover. Angry, pissed off and hell bent for leather, Tole is a no holds barred laugh riot who has no sacred cows and is at his best when he’s barbequing them on a spit, Texas style. The puritanically inclined should be warned that this album has no parental advisory sticker but could use one–even though we believe laughs should not be censored. With August coming to an end, we award Tole our laugh riot of the month designation for his fearlessness and unabashedly kicking contemporary angst squarely in the balls. There’s a lot of comedians we love out there but Tole has got us laughing harder than we have in a long time. If you aren’t afraid of laughing on the edge, check this out! A winner throughout.
