The feedback that we received on Rik Roberts was overwhelmingly positive. Our large group appreciated his clean humor. When in Louisville it’s hard to compete with 4th Street Live entertainment. However, Rik managed to keep everyone in their seats during the hour long performance. It was a pleasure working with him and we look forward to working with Rik again in the future.

Annual Meeting in Devils Lake, ND

Association Speakers and Entertainers in Devils Lake, ND

John Felts was fantastic to work with! He connected with our group on and off stage, keeping everyone in a great mood and always laughing. John was very professional and very much entertaining for the whole 60 minute performance. Its been a week since he performed and some of our leaders are still making comments about how good his performance was. This was our group's first time hiring a comedian and because of our great experience with John Felt we will incorporating more comedians into our last meetings each year. I would recommend John to any company gathering.

Annual Meeting in Brookings, SD

Association Speakers and Entertainers in Brookings, SD

Jerry Carroll was very entertaining. He arrived early, listened to our business meeting and got a flavor of who SD dairy farm families were. Then he used his talents to intertwine comedy of real life experiences and dairy life to keep everyone laughing. I only wish more could have been present to go home with a pain in the side from laughing.
