New Hampshire’s Own Juston McKinney has two Comedy Central Specials including his own one-hour special and multiple appearances on the Tonight Show and on Conan O'Brien but there's no place like home!

When NH magazine named him “Best of NH”they wrote,

“The Granite State may have more famous comedians than you can shake a stick at (Seth Meyers, Sarah Silverman and Adam Sandler to name a few) but no one really “gets” New Hampshire humor like Juston McKinney. He's been using the state as his comic muse since he was humoring perps as a deputy sheriff on the NH/ME border in the 1990s. Now he’s got TV deals galore and appearances on “The Tonight Show”and Comedy Central.”

His YouTube channel has over a million views, which includes NH favorites such as “Live Free or Die”and “Live Freeze then Die!”.

Juston was born in Portsmouth and he currently lives in New Hampshire with his wife, two children and two dogs.
