Cornerstone Church

“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!!

Crossing Over Inc.

John Felts did a fabulous job in helping our event become a huge success. He was very personable to our area and to our organization. He took the time to research our company and even cracked a few jokes regarding our Facebook profile which was awesome. He was very engaging with our audience and even brought someone on the stage to interact with. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a clean, full of laughter and all around great comedian. He shares funny stories of his family life that we can all relate to. I will definitely hire him again in the future for any comedian show/event we have. The feedback from our audience was great. Thank you John! You rocked it.

Founder, Comedy Night Fundraiser (Fitchburg, MA) 5/27/2017 review of John Felts

Chester Baptist Church

John Felts has to be one of the most personable and talented people we've hosted in 3+ years of weekly coffee house events and concerts. The extra mile he went to get to know us before he arrived resulted in roaring laughter from the first moments he took the stage. As a public speaker & pastor I was repeatedly astounded at how well John spun even the most unexpected opportunities into howling laughter. Most of us were too busy trying to breathe to wipe away the tears! (in a good way that is, lol) We needed a good laugh and John gave us so much more than that - this was just epic. In fact, I suspect several of the children in the front row have felt a call to become professional comedians themselves… We're still praying about that, and looking forward to his next visit. He is much more than a laughter-craftsman. John is a genuinely a good man.

Rik Roberts was the spotlight for our bi-annual sales event. His humor was well received by our diverse crowd of sales people from all over the US and Canada.

First Baptist Church

Leslie Norris Townsend had us rolling out of our seats!! One of the highlights of the show was the 12 Days of Christmas! She had audience participation and it was awesome! The audience really resonated with the 12 ladies who were chosen to participate in this skit. One lady told me that she hadn't laughed that hard in a very long time. Another lady told me she needed that because she was having a tough time and she needed to laugh. This was a huge success and the ladies of our church enjoyed it tremendously! Thank you, Leslie!

Bayside Chapel

John Felts was so great to work with! He is professional, down to earth, and extremely relatable. His performance was great! Our congregation LOVED him and are already asking when he will be back! John is very talented, extremely funny, but most of all - real. Everyone could get his jokes, and everyone left with a smile on their face. We can't wait to bring John back again!

Public Communications Specialist, Faculty Appreciation Banquet (Durham, NC) 5/5/2017 review of Guest Speakers

The Salvation Army

If I have one word to describe Leslie Townsend it would be "Connection" She connects to any type of crowd. She works her trade well. As a comedian she makes you laugh and feels your empty heart with joy. But the "connection" that makes you feel like you're not alone in the world in daily struggles of life and how she brings it all back to laughter and joy is what makes her a good guest for any event. If you want your guests to feel connected, appreciated, entertained, and leave with a soul full of joy, she is your comedian for your special event.

Virginia Knights of Columbus

John Felts nailed it and our group was still talking about his performance at the end of our convention. John's ability to personalize his show, adjust quickly when needed, and feed off on how the audience was responding to his material is a true testament of his character and professionalism. Well done and I hope we have an opportunity to have him at a future convention.
