"Azari’s comedy is precisely observed yet delivered with a breezy, bluesy air, in the tradition of Bill Hicks, George Carlin, and other ruthless truthtellers who came before" - Nola Defender
Johnny Azari (Brooklyn) is an Iranian-American comedian and has been on tour since 2015. Azari has appeared on “Weekly Riff” (Fuse) & “Crime Report” (Compound Media). When he isn’t on tour he performs in NYC clubs and produces “Free Speech Comedy” a Brooklyn based show. Azari delivers a high-energy act about life on the road, ten years as an almost-famous rock & roller, and political/social satire. Johnny has headlined 15 states, performed in seven comedy festivals, and released two full length albums, "The Revolution Will Be Hilarious," (2017) & “Fuccboi 4 The Status-quo,” (2019). Despite having scored films starring Natalie Portman & Cate Blanchette and grinding his ass off as an artist for 22 he still sleeps in his van 90% of the time.
"Combining a bad boy persona with a social commentary spin that cats like Lenny Bruce and George Carlin made iconic to their comedic brand, Azari is saying things that he hopes will resonate beyond punchlines." - TrunkSpace

Azari's music can be family friendly.
His comedy, however, is not suitable for children, adults,

If you cancel a musical booking with Azari due to the content on this COMEDY page god will give you a hemorrhoid.
