John Catucci


John Catucci is a talented actor-singer-comedian who has been performing professionally for the past several years. His love for the stage began at York University where as a member of Vanier College Productions he performed in such plays as Romeo and Juliet and the Canadian debut of the comedy Festival. It was during this time that John teamed up with David Mesiano and formed the musical comedy duo The Doo Wops.

In 2001, The Doo Wops won the prestigious Homegrown Comedy Competition at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal and returned to the Festival in 2004 where they were a huge hit. They were a part of the Just For Laughs, Wiseguy Tour as well as on the line-up for an incredibly successful 25 city run across North America with the Just For Laughs Comedy Tour. This year they returned to the festival to star in their own gala performance.

The Doo Wops have also performed at the Vancouver International Comedy Festival and at various clubs in Canada and the United States, including the world famous Improv and Comedy Factory in L.A. John is also a member of The Second City Touring Company as well as a founding member of The Minnesota Wrecking Crew, the 2003 and 2004 Canadian Comedy Award winners for best sketch troupe.

Some of John’s film and television credits include The Tuxedo, staring Jackie Chan, Toronto 1’s The Toronto Show, CBC’s To Die Four and The Sean Cullen Show, the feature film First Time Caller, The Comedy Network’s Liocracy, and ABC’s Movie of the Week Kiss My Act.

John has guest starred a number of times on Global TV’s Train 48, and is a series regular on the CBC children’s show called The Doodlebops which is presently in it’s second season.
