John Maucere is not a triple threat – he’s a quadruple threat! He is Poet, Emcee, Stand-up Comedian and SuperDeafy. He commands an audience like no other with his plastic face and lightning wit, and I’ve found myself many times rolling on the floor with laughter at his ability to present a mirror to our everyday lives. If the hearing community has Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno and David Letterman, the Deaf community has John Maucere; but he’s all of them rolled into one! If you ever see him coming to your town, definitely don’t miss him. And don’t walk, run! He is simply the best.

John Maucere is best-articulated, well-composed and most explicit stage presenter! I truly enjoyed all of his shows whether he is just a MC, Superdeafy or a poet. Love his ASL presentation and it’s a present that we all should cherish! With utmost admiration and respect for John Maucere.

John’s a natural in terms of improvising and connecting with his audience. His phenomenal talent is quite mind-blowing!

I was asked to write and perform with John for a benefit and I wondered how it would work since John is deaf. Well it was so much fun and education on my part as he was not only able to help me with my hearing problem but make the process and the sketch we did a blast. His talent is very loud and clear.

I have nothing but praise for John Maucere and would recommend him to anyone any day. He is funny, crazy, wild, versatile, inventive and very original. He has come a long way since his young days with the National Theatre of the Deaf and now is a full-grown stand-up comedian. He is a truly gifted and talented performer, entertainer and a very warm and loveable human being. I am mighty proud of him.

John Maucere, expresses with his hands more than spoken English can say and it speaks volumes about his view in life! As a comedian, watching him is just like watching an awesome firework show of oohs and ahhs. His timing is just right and gets to you every time.

Our relationship with John Maucere has lasted for more than 10 years. The only reason we have worked together for so long, more 100 different shows in dozens of states, is because of the type of performer John is. He has proven himself professional, versatile, and above all, hilarious. If he’s flying high as SuperDeafy, conducting interviews as John Leno, or telling jokes as a stand up entertainer, he has never failed to bring in the laughs. I would be hard pressed to ever find another performer and comedian who has managed to sustain the type of success and laughs that he has brought to DeafNation for many years.
