In 2003 I won the 25th 'International Mr Leather' contest in Chicago, (the only Briton ever to have won the title).

I started stand-up comedy in 2010. Since then I've performed over 900 gigs at comedy clubs and theatres across the UK.

Solo show "John Pendal – International Man of Leather” has been performed in Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Edmonton (Canada), Melbourne and Rome. It had a full run at The Stand, Edinburgh Fringe 2016 and received the following reviews:

★★★★★ “Fringe brilliance” - Broadway Baby

★★★★ “An extremely important and funny show”-Arts Award Voice

★★★★ “engaging and hilarious throughout” - Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

“like 50 Shades of Grey on steroids” – The Mirror

“Embrace your kink and go”- Kate Copstick, The Scotsman
