|1/27/2021||Sioux Falls, SD||Volunteer Appreciation with Andy Beningo|
"We were excited to have Joshua present virtually to our team of volunteer leaders throughout New Jersey and the surrounding area. Joshua brought us the perfect program for our first meeting in 2020 since the start of the ongoing healthcare crisis. Joshua created a custom blend of entertainment, inspiration, and communication take-aways that fit in well with our association’s goals and mission."
"John Felts was professional in every aspect of his performance. Loved how he made his routine personal by including so many church personnel in his opening session. We all got a healthy laugh from the light-hearted comments and personal touch. We all enjoyed interacting with him."
"We booked Larry Weaver to be the keynote speaker at our Annual Volunteer Appreciation Night. From the moment he walked in the door, he was engaging, warm, easy to communicate with, and FUNNY! He interacted well with the audience, and encouraged participation. Our volunteers enjoyed his presentation immensely and had many good comments all throughout the next week! We highly recommend Larry for whatever your entertainment needs might be."
"John Felts was fabulous! We really enjoyed having him at our church. It was even better that he personalized his material to our area and our church. It made for a fun evening! Such a blast!"
"John was awesome. John had researched our church and was able to connect with us immediately which helped everyone relax and have a good night. Several of his joke were being repeated the next morning at church!! John connected with a very diverse age group and kept everyone in stitches. He was clean, professional and hilarious. If you are having an event and looking to have a fun and laughter-filled night, stop searching and invite John Felts!"
"We booked Larry Weaver for our church Volunteer Banquet. Even with the diverse age and personalities of the attendees, Larry was a huge success! He was engaging with the audience and had a wide variety of material that had everyone laughing. Working with Larry Weaver was a great experience! He was professional-from his dress to his demeanor. We received excellent comments from our members about his performance following the event. I hope to get him back again for other church events. I HIGHLY recommend Larry Weaver for all your entertainment needs!"
"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."

"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!"
