 John Pastore, was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY.   In 2005, he had his first full-length production titled Death Party. His short comedy, The Calendar, was produced in 2007 at Theatre For The New City. In the Fall of 2010, he acted as dramaturg in a production of The Weeping Game, a classic Serbian comedy directed by famed international director, Sanja Bestic. He then wrote the highly successful dark comedy Sidetracked in the Fall of 2011, also directed by Sanja Bestic, which debuted to a sold out crowd at the Abingdon Theatre. He followed with the dark comedy hit, Panic at the Riverside Motel in May 2012, and then the acclaimed drama, Family of Strangers in March 2013. In January 2014, Panic at the Riverside Motel was again produced, this time Off Broadway, at the Roy Arias Theatre in NYC. The production received rave reviews and overwhelming crowd responses. His short plays, Meters and Swipe, Swipe, Swipe were produced at the Manhattan Repertory Theatre in 2017, with Meters going onto the Jewel Box Theatre as well.

His plays are noted for their realistic dialogue and biting, dark humor. Actors and directors are drawn to his off-beat style of writing.

 Benjamin Lee High School is a mockumentary  written in the style of Christopher Guest, and was awarded official selection in the New York Independent Cinema Awards, quarter finalist in the Chicago Screenplay Awards, and is currently a semi-finalist in the Lit Laughs International Comedy Film Festival.
