Theater Speakers and Entertainers in Spokane, WA

Joshua Lozoff was an amazing addition to our New Year's Eve program! We have had nothing but rave reviews of his performance, and many inquiries if he will be returning next year. He was a joy to work with from start to finish, as he truly brought his A game to the table. I especially appreciated him coming with me at 7AM to do a last minute TV interview when I woke him up at 6:40. He really was team a player every step of the way. I would highly recommend Joshua to anyone looking for the real deal.

First Night Saratoga in Saratoga, NY

Joshua Lozoff drew standing room only crowds for each of his three fabulous acts and audience members who had chosen to stand in line for an hour to see him said it was all worth the wait. Josh was gracious and easy to work with in advance of the performances and even agreed to tailor one of his shows to help a young man make a surprise proposal to his girlfriend, which was amazing and touching to watch- truly the definition of "magic". Certainly we will love to have this performer back and in a bigger venu

Clean Comedy Concert in Wadesboro, NC

Our audience was so thrilled with Matt, that they have asked me to bring him back. He is funny, musical and keeps the audience involved throughout the entire show. Even our ushers were dancing in the back of the theater. I definitely intend to have him back whenever our schedules will let us. Nice clean fun and jokes - no curse words, something for the entire family to spend the evening. He arrived just when he said he would so that our tech could go over everything with him. He was a delight.
