"Jerry Carroll was very prompt, very chatty, and blended right in. He listened to the speaker before him and added it right into the performance. We had a lot of good comments from the audience."
"Jerry Carroll struck a home run! Everyone loved him. He was down to earth from the very beginning. He was easy to work with, meeting out needs. As well as his own. He is a regular guy, and gets just as excited to get into a new combine as we do! Jerry was very personable both on and off the stage. The man has stories… stories for days! LOL so be ready to listen and laugh!"
"We loved Jerry Carroll! I would recommend him to anyone, especially in the Ag industry. Very clean comedian and laughs at himself. Our group of 110 Indiana farmers LOVED laughing with him. He arrived early and mingled with the group before hand. Was very down to earth, engaged with the group, made them laugh, and was very relatable to our group of farmers."
The Delaware State Fair, Inc.
"Jerry Carroll is so funny and very engaging. Our audience was filled with people from ages 17-80 and every review I heard from them after the show was positive (and our crowd is tough to impress). He covered many topics and was really able to connect with the audience. He was early for the show, stuck to the time limit we gave him and overall wonderful to deal with! We would definitely have him back in the future!!"

"This is the fourth year we have held our event and Jerry Carroll was by far the best entertainment to date! He kept our crowd of farmers and friends of agriculture rolling in laughter from start to finish. The President of our company told me I had hit a home run after he finished. We'd have him back every year if we could! Thank you, Jerry!"
Montana State University Extension
"As our event is not a huge event and does not draw thousands of people, it is hard to find good acts that will perform at our banquet. Jerry Carroll not only agreed to perform at our show, he came early, took much of the event in, and stayed late. Anything that was asked of him he did with enthusiasm. The crowd loved his act and the organizers loved his professionalism! We will definitely ask him to come back again."

Then he used his talents to intertwine comedy of real life experiences and dairy life to keep everyone laughing.

Spudnik Equipment Company LLC
"It was a pleasure having Jerry Carroll. First it was so good he planned on coming in a day early in case of weather. That paid off as the day of the party the weather was not good. Jerry came in and spent about an hour seeing our facility and meeting employees. He was very attentive to all the employees and interested in our process. Jerry’s personality was very welcoming to all and everyone I have spoken too was so impressed with his connection to them and he was sincerely interested in the conversations he had with them. Plus lots of laughs at the time. He incorporated his travels to Blackfoot, Idaho into his act and this personal touch was a hit. His act was clean and I have not heard that anyone was offended by his performance. This was great as we have a mix of employees with beliefs and culture. Jerry is one we will most definitely look at bringing back for other functions and we all look forward to that time."
Central Prairie Coop
"Jerry Carroll was a huge hit. He arrived on time and we spent some time before the show discussing agriculture. He shared his story and what he was doing on the farm today. He did an incredible job of relating his upbringing to his comedy and doing it without missing a beat. He went from one funny story to another. I am pretty sure it had some humorous fiction built in but he kept our audience laughing the whole time. Several members stated it was the best entertainment yet."
Kendall-Grundy Beef Association
"Jerry Carroll was hilarious. Best entertainment in a long time. Super pleased with him and his show. Would recommend to anyone."
Grain Elevator and Processing Society
"Jerry Carroll did a great job. He arrived early and met our speakers and staff. He was very conversational, engaging members to better understand the business and establish good rapport. Also very professional, he connected with our audience, even at this breakfast event. We received many comments back that he was not only funny, but he knew the industry and award topics well enough to provide good lead-ins and tied the awards together nicely. It was very easy to schedule Jerry and the communication prior to the event was well timed and always spot on. It was also very helpful to have access to Jerry's introduction and high resolution photo's for the event and pre-event promotion. We enjoyed Jerry very much, both personally and professionally and would recommend Jerry to any group and especially those in an agricultural related business."

Spencer Chamber of Commerce
"Wow -- where to start? Jerry Carroll met and exceeded my expectations. He was very easy to work with and very thoughtful. Jerry attended the Vendor Reception on Monday night - networking with the vendors and getting to know our committee and the surrounding area. On Tuesday, Jerry arrived early at the venue and walked around networking with the vendors; meeting the public and attending the speaker before Jerry - Iowa Agriculture Secretary, Bill Northey. Everyone I have talked to that attended Jerry Carroll's presentation have told me nothing but great things about his presentation. Jerry staying up on what is happening in Agriculture and Business in other parts of the US - and not just his home state is what impressed me. He very much so has his homework done to relate to his audience. Jerry also dressed correctly - he did not try to out dress the audience. Jerry's audience was farmers and farm related business people mainly and he dressed to relate to them - this was wonderful! After Jerry's presentation and before he left I was very touched that he came to find me to thank me and give me a hug. I would recommend Jerry to anyone."
Nebraska Farm Bureau Federation
"Jerry Carroll was great! He put in a plug about his state Farm Bureau membership and they just loved it! We only had 22 surveys returned but he was scored 19 as Excellent and 2 as Good. The only comment was 'have him back'!"
"We were very pleased with Jerry Carroll at our event. He was great to work with, did a great job mingling with the growers attending before and after his show. His act was great. He could really relate to our clients with his agricultural based humor. We have had several people that were in attendance that have commented since how great the evening was. I even actually had another salesman for another product stop in and mention he's had customer comment to him what a great event it was. I definitely hope it would work out to do something in the future again. Hopefully people keep talking about it and we can drive some sales and try to do a much larger event."
Crop Production Services
"Jerry Carroll did a bang up job. He arrived at our meeting 30 minutes prior to dinner. He mixed with the crowd before and after the meeting. He even worked one of our products into his presentation. He told good, down-to-earth stories, one right after the other. People actually had tears of laughter rolling down their cheeks. Everyone has raved about him since his program. I would recommend him to anybody for an after dinner speaker. He is all country. We might try to have him back next year."

The feedback from our staff and all our guests was tremendous. As a John Deere dealer and Jerry being a farmer, he was able to relate to many of our farmer guests with humorous stories that made every day events come to life in a funny way. Jerry has been blessed to make people laugh at themselves and we really appreciated his style and "down home" approach to comedy."

"Comments ranged across the board. He closed out with Dirt in DNA, but it would have been great to have that message throughout the presentation to be able to connect back instead of only mentioning in the last 5 minutes of his presentation to connect with some audience members."
Arkansas Farm Bureau
"Jerry Carroll was wonderful to work with! I can't say enough good things about him and his performance. Our audience loved him. He connected so well I believe after an hour, he could have gone on for another hour and no one would have left. I heard many great comments, including that he was the best speaker we had had in a long time. His style of comedy was perfect for our members. I really enjoyed working with him. Everything we needed to promote the event was right at our fingertips on the website and any questions were answered quickly. We will definitely be looking to you for future entertainment."

I received nothing but positive remarks from our sales team following his performance. I would highly recommend Jerry to other groups inside and outside of our company."
"Jerry Carroll showed up on time and very quickly became one of us before the show. He kept the show clean and was able to relate to the crowd very well.

Jerry also stuck around for a while after the show and visited with some of the audience which I think people really appreciated. I would recommend Jerry Carroll to anyone."
