About The Artist:
John Cantwell is a veteran comedic performer with over 25 years experience in “showbiz”. After graduating with a degree in Music from a small Southern Baptist college in his home state of Louisiana he began performing in the Dallas, TX area with jobs in summer stock productions like “Chicago” & “42nd Street” as well as a stint at Six Flags Over Texas. He quickly saved up money and in less than 3 years moved to New York City where he began to cultivate his art and cut his performance teeth with legendary gay sketch comedy group, The Nellie Olesons, among other theatrical endeavors and short films, like the gay film festival classic, “Boot Camp”, featuring Cantwell as a leather master initiating a novice into a song and dance routine ala “Fred and Ginger” about the joys of leather and rough sex.
With the Nellie Olesons he created, starred and produced a total of 9 critically acclaimed and very politically incorrect “variety” style shows is as many years. The character of “Connie Slocum” (aka Love Connie) took flight here, she being a southern, naive, ramshackle beauty queen (as played by a 6 foot, muscular, high-kicking guy in heels and a wig). After touring a year with the group, including a stop at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal and a rave review in the New York Times, Cantwell moved to LA and appeared (as “Connie”) on shows like “Will & Grace” (directed by James Burrows), “The Riches” and the films NICK & NORAH’S INFINITE PLAYLIST and DOG GONE LOVE. He has appeared on TV alongside greats like Jack Warden, Norm MacDonald and Eddie Izzard but most people will remember John from the Reese Witherspoon classic LEGALLY BLONDE and his now famous line “Oh, my God, the bend and snap works every time!”
Most recently Love Connie appeared as a special guest on VH1’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race” guiding the Season 11 contestants in an exercise focused mini-challenge dancing her way into America’s hearts. You can also see Love Connie in her World Of Wonder exclusive web series “Connie-Wood” available on WOW Presents Plus.
