“Godfrey Johnson was born to be an entertainer. He’s not only a musician, he’s a full stage personality. You’ll laugh and cry and be thoroughly entertained with him in whichever role he’s playing. His fabulous piano playing is just a cherry on top!” Gaynor Paynter
Throughout his career, Johnson has delivered high-impact performances, and has a special place in audience’s hearts and minds for his intimate and life-affirming delivery of Jaques Brel’s work. At once dark and light, Johnson proves himself as much a dramatist as he is comedian. This ability also sees him bringing the songs and social vignette’s of Noel Coward’s life and times into the 21st century, bringing both him and Coward to new audiences, and his Brel and Coward is known from Montreal to London, and from Amsterdam to Boksburg.
Godfrey Johnson – who has never received a bad review – has worked with leading organisations in both the public and the private sectors, including:
Old Mutual | Pep Stores | Nedbank | EdCon | The National Government of South Africa | Parliament | The 2010 WorldCup Local Organising Committee The African National Congress | World Aids Day | The Rotary Club CANSA Fundraiser | Moni’s Winemakers | Klipdripft Brandy Distillery | Vertigo Clothing |
His vast repertoire of songs, intelligent comedy and set of well-loved characters make him the both the ideal Master of Ceremonies and musical entertainer, combined.
“Godfrey is amazing! He will make you laugh, grin, applaud, cry. He’s fun, funny, true, real. He’s a true performer. You will leave his shows smiling and wanting to come back for more. Simply put he’s fabulous” –Jenni Bessesen
