"AND HERES JOHNNY!"

        (Holiday That Is!)

                              by Judy Jones

 

I met Johnny Holiday at 'Artists With Wings', an artist

networking group I started.

 

"Wanna see my comedy act?"

asked Johnny walking in the room.

 

"Sure", I answered.

 

Johnny proceeds to turn on a hand held video of himself

doing his stand up comedy routine onstage.

 

"Wow!  and you're 90 years old Johnny?"  I said.

 

"Yup, I'm channeling George Burns!" 

 Johnny answered grinning.

 

"But Johnny, where's your cigar?"  I challenged.

 

Johnny Holiday is a professional actor/comedian

whose act is 'timeless'. You can watch it now or

in twenty years and get the same enjoyment.

Johnny's pure class!

 

He goes to more auditions in one week than

most actors half his age do in a year. 

 

What are his secrets? The following interview

with Johnny Holiday for "On The Road With Judy!"

reveals all his secrets and at 90 years of age,

Johnny has many!!

 

                       So hold on to your hat,

                            "HERES JOHNNY!"

                         (HOLIDAY THAT IS!)

 

****************************************

ME: 

Johnny, what do you plan to be doing at 100?

 

JOHNNY:

My great dream is to get enough exposure

by then so a major studio will make a

documentary about me on my 100th birthday.

George Burns lived to be over 100 and

I feel his spirit in me!

 

ME:

Did you act when you were young?

 

JOHNNY:

Never.  I'm 90 and when I was 85 some idiot

told me I had acting ability and I'm a greater

idiot than he was because I believed him! 

After 25 years of retired life, I have more

ambition than ever. I just have to make it!

 

ME:

When do you plan on starring in your own

full length movie?

 

JOHNNY:

YESTERDAY!  At my age all I get is small parts 

but I am always waiting for the 'BIG ONE' to come along.

 

ME:

How did you earn your living before becoming

a professional actor/comic?

 

JOHNNY:

I was a bartender, waiter and cab driver.

 

ME:

How many years have you been a jogger Johnny?

 

JOHNNY:

Something like fifty years.

 

ME:

Are you married? (besides to your acting)

 

JOHNNY:

I've been married and divorced three times.

I wasn't made to be married and found that out

the hard way, money wise.

 

ME:

Would you consider a facelift? (not that you need it!)

 

JOHNNY:

Hell no.  I call myself  'Mr. Handsome' and

try to believe it!

 

ME:

Does being a standup comic at 90 years of age

seem easy to you Johnny, or do you have

to really stretch yourself to keep the audience laughing?

 

JOHNNY:

I find it easy because I go out of my way to make

people laugh anyways. 

 

ME:

Are you living your dreams?

 

JOHNNY:

I'm working on them.

 

ME:

If you could relive any part of your 90 years,

would you and if so, which ones and why?

 

JOHNNY:

None.  All were learning experiences; some sad,

some otherwise.  I regret nothing.  Since starting on

my acting career, life is more fun for me and I

wish I had started earlier!!

 

ME:

Johnny, you are such an inspiration.  Have

you been approached to do your own TV show?

I would watch, just to see you go thru one day

of your exciting life!

 

JOHNNY:

Not yet, but it's one of my dreams.

 

ME:

Does it bother you coming in

last in the Bay to Breakers Race?

 

JOHNNY:

Not at all.  Its a fun day for me. I meet lots of

people and joke with them.  I wouldn't miss

that race for anything!

 

ME:

Were your parents in 'the biz'?

 

JOHNNY:

Nope.

 

ME: 

Does longevity run in your family?

 

JOHNNY:

Nope.  Maybe I'm wrong but I attribute all my energy

in my later years to a good diet, exercise and being happy

about everything.  I think a grouch cuts off some of

our life.

 

ME:

Your energy level is certainly that of a person

40 years younger than you. Do you have any friends your

age or can any of them keep up with you???

 

JOHNNY:

I have always hung out with a younger set.  Whatever I do,

I'm the oldest in the group. I guess I will be the oldest

person to be interviewed in "ON THE ROAD WITH JUDY!"

 

ME:

How do you keep your growing fame from going to your head?

Seems everyone in San Francisco knows Johnny Holiday!

 

JOHNNY:

Not so, just a few know me.  I'm too busy having fun to

let any silly notion go to my head.

 

ME:

So what does Johnny Holiday plan to be doing in 2004?

 

JOHNNY:

The same thing as today. Plugging along and hoping

some good show biz parts come my way.

 

ME:

What are the highlights of your career so far

in 2003 Johnny?

 

JOHNNY:

I did an indie this year, that made the Mill Valley Festival

That was great because I had a real dramatic part.

 

The highlight of this year was being in 'LIFE WITH BONNIE!'

If all of the fun stuff makes it in, and doesn't end up

on the cutting floor, that will be perfect!

 

ME:

In your 90 years, have you seen significant changes

in opportunities for women?

 

JOHNNY:

One of the things that makes me happy is the growth

of opportunities for women. But there are many more to come.

 

ME:

I just have to ask it Johnny. Since San Francisco is the

Gay Capital of the World are you or aren't you??

 

JOHNNY:

I'm straight as they come. Not that there is anything wrong

with being gay.  But I'm too old to find out how good

it is.  Boy, oh boy, do I love women.  Can't get enough!!!!
