How do I view my past comments?
I can easily find answers I;ve given, and comments made on my posts. But often I comment on an answer in a question and then never find the question again. Is this accessible anywhere?

You have the activity tab on your profile.
Unfortunately, that's a limited list.
I would give an example with your userid, but as your accounts aren't associated, and "John" isn't particularly a unique name... ;-)
Looks like there is a newer way. Visit the StackExchange Data Explorer and create a query for showing comments from a particular user id (like in @Ether's example).
-- Show Comments -- Show all my comments SELECT * FROM comments WHERE userid=116891 ORDER BY creationdate DESC
If you're willing to wait until the next month's data dump, you can see all your comments by querying Joel C's excellent StackQL with a query like:
SELECT * FROM comments WHERE userid=<your userid> ORDER BY creationdate DESC
