Justin McKinney's BIO:
When the New York Times called Juston McKinney, "Destined for Stardom", they didn't know how right they were. With multiple performances on The Tonight Show, his own Comedy Central specials and consistently selling out theaters, he's at the top of his game.
Juston grew up living on the border of New Hampshire and Maine. After earning an associates degree from the very prestigious Southern Maine Community College, he was hired as a deputy Sheriff patrolling the same border in which he grew up. But in 1997 Juston turned in his gun and badge and left the dangerous streets of rural Maine and moved to the quiet community of Queens, New York. While living in NYC he quickly worked his way into the weekend line-up at Comic Strip Live, Stand-up New York, Dangerfield's, Gotham, and Caroline's on Broadway. Juston would go on to sign sitcom development deals with Warner Brothers, CBS Productions, IFC and Comedy Central.
He has appeared on a half dozen Comedy Central shows including his half hour Comedy Central Presents and his 1-hour special Juston McKinney-A Middle-Class Hole, which was released by Warner Bros. He has appeared numerous times on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno as well as the, Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien. He was chosen to be part of the Blue Collar Comedy" Next Generation" Tour, with Bill Engval, which aired on TBS and had his own weekly show on Sirius/XM radio, Live From the Woods with Juston McKinney.
His TV credits include; The King of Queens, the Sidney Lumet drama 100 Centre Street. His movie credits include The Zoo Keeper and Here Comes the Boom.
Juston also wrote, created and starred in the web series Hosed, about a volunteer fire department in the fictitious town of Effingwoods, NH. It caught the eye of Denis Leary and his production company Apostle. Juston then wrote the pilot and it was sold to IFC.
He currently lives in New Hampshire with his wife, kids and dogs.
