David Ferrell, Comedian in Sully, IA

"David Ferrell was very professional to work with. He was prompt, personable, and funny! Our guests enjoyed his comedy and there was plenty of laughter to go around! He kept his jokes clean and appropriate for our group, which was a tough crowd of older more conservative attendees. It was evident that he spent time learning about our small town before his performance to help make the show more relevant to his crowd. Both before and after the show he took time to speak with guests and share more of his story as well as listen. We had a great night."
