John has been awarded Writers' Guild Award twice; firstly in 2011 for Best Radio Comedy for CABIN PRESSURE AT CHRISTMAS, and again for Best Radio Comedy in 2017 for DOUBLE ACTS: “English for Pony Lovers”. In 2015, he won the BBC Audio Drama Award for Best Comedy for JOHN FINNEMORE'S SOUVENIR PROGRAMME.

Other accolades include comedy.co.uk awards for Best British Radio Sitcom for JOHN FINNEMORE'S SOUVENIR PROGRAMME in 2011, and CABIN PRESSURE also picked up the Best British Radio Sitcom in 2011, 2013 and 2014. The second series of JOHN FINNEMORE’S SOUVENIR PROGRAMME was awarded the Radio Award at the 2013 Chortle Comedy Awards, and in 2014 CABIN PRESSURE was also voted "Comedy of the Year" across TV and Radio, making it the first radio show to be given the honour.

John is currently engaged in writing for the screen, with a number of projects in development, and, following the successful run of JOHN FINNEMORE'S SOUVENIR CABIN at The Shaw Theatre in 2015, JOHN FINNEMORE'S FLYING VISIT, a new theatrical tour, is being planned for 2018.
