"David Ferrell is warm, personable, kind and HILARIOUS! He made our event a great success! He is fantastic at integrating he audience and the location into his comedy. He was a joy to work with and we will have him back again for sure!"
"David was very communicative and reachable before the event. He arrived early, was professional and friendly, and he did an incredible job of connecting with our seniors. Many laughs were had by all, and we all enjoyed the fun and lightness that he brought to the atmosphere."
"The Bible tells us that laughter is like medicine and we received a good dose of it at our annual church volunteer appreciation party! Larry was both professional and funny. Our people were able to relate to his "hometown" humor and it was clean and appropriate for a church related function. People are still talking about it almost a month later."
"Everyone loved Steve. Our residents will be talking about Steve and Elmer for a long time. He was funny, professional, clean, and gracious. Steve and his friends are good medicine for the soul."
"We had John Felts for an volunteer appreciation event at our church and he was amazing. I was very impressed by the amount of homework he did about our church and our area to personalize his act. He was very friendly and hug around after the event to meet and talk with our people. Great Job!!!!!!"
"The event was fantastic. Several people commented on how they enjoyed Andy’s use of the crowd for content. Others said they had been to events with comedians before, and they weren’t all that funny, but Andy was amazing. Personally, I was wondering how he would be able to keep a crowd (made up of ages 16-93) entertained for that length of time, but he did it, and it was hilarious the entire time. I also have a couple of people tell me that they know of organizations who hire comedians for annual meetings, and they’d love to see him come back to the area."
"Having Arthur at our event was amazing. His engagement with the audience was exceptional. He greeted people as they were entering the venue and was very professional. He kept the audiences attention throughout the entire show and the message he brought during the show was really good as well. We enjoyed everything about him. Before the show began he even helped me light candles before people arrived. I would recommend him to others if they wanted a magician."
"Paul Miller was quick to respond to cmmunications and so easy to work with when we had to make a schedule change. The audience thoroughly enjoyed his performance. He did a superb job of engaging with them and including individuals from the audience in his act."
"What an absolutely amazing thing your company has with Arthur!! He was incredible! But what I enjoyed most was, no one was a number; everyone in the crowd was somebody. He spoke to you like a person and was as down to earth as he could be. He presented an amazing salvation message while demonstrating it with magic tricks; which captivated everyone SO well! Overall, so thrilled we invited him. It was a phenomenal night! Will definitely be inviting him back!"
"We all enjoyed having Rik Roberts at our event. We ask him to greet our guest as "Barney Fife" as they entered our event. It was great to see them all smile and engage, when the saw him. They all could relate to his tribute of this great historical character. We enjoyed Rik's humor as our guest speaker and his musical talent as well. It was a memorial evening for all of those volunteers who assist with Community Church's outreach program here in Greenwood Indiana. We were very satisfied and grateful to Rik for sharing his talent with us on this special evening of recognition at our Church."
"Larry Weaver was very easy to work with. He did a great job in communicating with us before, during and after his performance. He was very funny and was enjoyed by our entire audience from child up to adult. He even hung around and spoke to our guests afterwards. I highly recommend Larry for your next event."
"John Felts was extraordinary. Prior to the event, we were in regular contact. On the day of the event, he arrived early and was well-prepared for the event. His audiovisual use of information provided to him allowed him to connect quickly with the crowd of nearly 200, most of whom were teenagers. John was warm, transparent, engaging, and extremely funny. Woven within his comedy were messages of character and responsibility. He might have arrived as a stranger to our audience, but he left a rock star. We hope to be able to work with John again one day."
"Our 400-person conference luncheon loved Joshua! His presentation was engaging, fun, and had some great pointers for improving communication. His use of audience participation was a great way to get our attendees immersed in the experience and everyone was super amazed at his ability to do what seemed impossible!"
"John Felts is extremely funny, friendly and can easily relate to any group that he is asked to perform for. It was an amazing night . We had volunteers of all ages at our event and there was something for everyone. Everyone was laughing the entire night."
"We thoroughly enjoyed our evening with Rik Roberts! His content and delivery was relevant, engaging and an appropriate atmosphere for all in attendance. The highlight of his show was his spot-on rendition of Barney Fife - I could have watched two hours of that performance alone! Rik's participation in our celebration evening for volunteers made this a night we will remember."
"John Felts made our Volunteer Appreciation Night a blast! The audience, consisting of mixed ages, appreciated the humor throughout the show as was heard from the many laughs. I have been getting nothing but excellent feedback from the people who attended and them asking for his information as well. If any organization is looking for good, clean comedy, John Felts is your guy!!"
"Paul Miller really went out his way to incorporate our theme into his show. He was spontaneously personable, talented, funny, & friendly."
"John Felts was very professional and fun! We had a mixed group of children thru adults. He related well to everyone. He had the children eating out of his hand! They loved him."
"Ross was kind enough to do our show last minute after inclement weather prevented our comic from attending. He connected well with our audience. He also asked permission before to mention a bit of his faith background -- it was a church event so this appreciated -- but would have had a great show even without it!"
"I haven't laughed that hard in years! Larry Weaver was the consummate professional. His pre-event communication was excellent, he was prompt, courteous and enjoyable to work with. His performance showcased his experience as well as his comedic skills. His humor was well-received by a cross-section of age groups and cultural backgrounds. He couldn't have been better and we couldn't have been happier. Stellar show, Larry!"
"David was professional in every way. He was prompt in communicating before the event, he was on time to the event, but most importantly he was personable. David's routine was very interactive and we had a lot of fun. Many walked away feeling as if it was the best banquet we have had to date. He did a super job!"
"I want to let you know how happy we are with the success of our Volunteer Appreciation Night. David Ferrell is very gracious and comfortable with people. He is personable and open. Everyone that met him enjoyed the conversation and his warmth. David's performance was funny and very relatable. Many felt his personal story was touching. A good laugh helps you feel better and relieves stress. He had just the right combination of humour and heart. We appreciate David and the ministry he has to draw people together to enjoy themselves and to look at life from a different perspective. Thank you again David for your kindness and beautiful spirit."

"“REFRESHING!” - over and over that was the phrase we heard from our church volunteers when talking about the banquet we hosted for them with John Felts as the entertainment. The personal touch he added with his thorough research of our church is what made his performance like no other. John was very funny, professional, and personable. He interacted with our people not only during the performance but before and afterward. We actually had a few volunteers think he was a new volunteer. I will definitely be recommending him to all of my Pastor friends. We believe, like the Bible says, “laughter is medicine” and we all got an overdose that night!!"
