"Leslie Norris Townsend has a high energy performance that connects with her audience very well. She interacts with them and draws them into her performance. Even though a snowstorm was starting outside, people opted to stay for Leslie’s presentation and they expressed their appreciation for her enthusiasm and her message of maintaining hope in the face of agricultural economic troubles. Bottom line: we loved her!!!"

"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!"

"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."

One of our CEO’s from local area hospitals participated in one of her activities, he told her he was the Janitor. He text me later that night and told me he had a great time. So thank you and Leslie.

"We were really happy with Leslie Norris Townsend. She is not only funny but an amazing human being. We loved having her. All four of our shows were rated 96-99/100 and the feedback from the audience was superb! We had people requesting to bring her back next year. Some even said that they hadn't enjoy themselves so much in years. There are other departments within our system that hold charity events throughout the year and are considering Leslie after seeing her in action. Working with Larry Weaver Entertainment and Leslie was a pleasure."

"Thank you to Leslie Norris Townsend for a funny and enthusiastic presentation that ended our three-day Farm Women's Symposium. The ladies loved it!! Many laughed until they had tears in their eyes. So many could relate to the stories she told because we had been there and done that!

The Village Church at Shell Point
"I wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed Leslie's time with us. In one word it was PERFECT! We had a sell-out crowd and could have sold many more tickets if we had the space. It was an amazing event with almost 200 women just having a super fun time. Leslie was all and even more than you advertised her to be. She was easy to work with, lots of fun and just a delightful person in every way. We laughed the entire hour she spoke. Her content was so relatable to us women. She is truly one of the funniest entertainers I have heard. I think the main thing that our ladies enjoyed about Leslie was how she so naturally and comfortably related to us, her audience. Our women enjoyed participating with her and especially when she did the 12 days of Christmas. Leslie even drew the TV man we had on hand into her act. He could not stop laughing. It was all so much fun and I don't know when I have laughed so much and so hard. Thank you for sending her our way! Our ladies here at Shell Point are still talking about Leslie and her time with us and will do so far into the future! She was more than we expected, amazing and wonderful and we loved having her."
Dearwester Grain Services, Inc.
"Leslie was a very energetic, positive speaker. We enjoyed her energy and enthusiasm. Her opening song was unexpected from our crowd and I'm not sure how well that went over. From there, her stand up section took a while for our crowd to warm up. It's a tough farmer crowd to win over but that didn't stop her. Once she got the crowd involved with her 12 Days of Christmas bit, the crowd really opened up and started rolling. Overall, we were very pleased to have Leslie at our Customer Appreciation event."

"Leslie Norris Townsend was everything we hoped she would be for our event! She was a delight to have and did an astounding job! She was funny, yet personable. Leslie was well received by the audience and she related her life story with humor and class! She warmed the hearts and encouraged the lives of those attending with a great testimony, that just so happened to tie into the Pastor's morning sermon! She was a trooper with the weather and a hoot listen to. We'd gladly have her back! Thank you for making it possible for us to have clean comedy on a very cold night in January!"

Mount Carmel Haven of Hope
"We had Leslie Norris Townsend as the main event for an October Breast Cancer Awareness event. The audience was breast cancer survivors that participate in our survivorship programming. We were delighted with the outcome. Leslie was great. She really approached the event as laughing in the face of adversity and how laughing through life is therapeutic and freeing. She warmed the crowd immediately upon her entrance with an upbeat song. The group was able to relax and really get into the performance. Leslie hit on common topics and themes that all of us face in life and joked/laughed her way through them allowing us to join her. After the show, one of our survivors came up to thank us for inviting Leslie and allowing the group to have a night off. Everyone gave Leslie praise for connecting with a tough group that has been through a lot. We were very pleased with our experience."

El Paseo Arts Foundation
"Our audience loved Leslie Norris Townsend. Her humor is high energy and CLEAN! She is a breath of fresh air right from the start. People are still talking about the show and congratulating me on it."
"We have received nothing but excellent feedback about Leslie’s performance. She did a great job of selecting material that engaged our audience of farmers, and had a great knack at picking out “volunteers” that would be entertaining to the audience as well. One attendee called the next day to let us know how much he enjoyed the show wanted everyone involved to know “that it was refreshing to be able to laugh - and laugh hard - at something that wasn’t raunchy.” I know several in attendance are considering hiring her for entertainment at their organization’s future meetings. All of the business cards she had at the door disappeared. Thank you again for making our first customer dinner a successful one."
The Salvation Army
"I have heard good things regarding the performance by Leslie Norris Townsend. She related well to the ladies, and I saw her posing for photos and hugs with many of the women. She was able to engage several of the women in her performance, and that also helped to make a connection with the audience. The ladies seemed to really enjoy the presentation, and it fit well into the program for the evening. One of our units has inquired about having her for a event in the future."
