When he is not on the small screen, Johnston is touring around North America, performing on some of the top comedy stages and comedy festivals on the continent.

In 2016 and 2017, he was invited to the legendary Comedy Store in Hollywood for the Top Canadian Talent Showcase, where he shared the spotlight with big names, including fellow Canucks Russell Peters, Tom Green and Jeremy Hotz.

Johnston is also fresh off his debut comedy special, No Bull, which was recorded in his home town of Hamilton, Ontario.
