"John Felts was amazing!! What an awesome comedian!! Such an extremely funny, professional, and personable individual. Everyone from the church that attended the event is still talking and laughing about him - so much fun!! Highly, highly recommend John Felts for any event!!"
"John Felts was not only funny, but extremely professional and personable. Our group was mixed in ages and backgrounds. He made the night so very personal by adding elements of our church with some study he did online. I truly hope to work with him again. A++"
"John Felts was funny and adapted his show to the audience. He did research about who was there so the audience felt like they were a part of the show."

River of Life
"John Felts was very personable with our group, taking time to meet with and joke with everyone after the event, I really appreciated that. He also did a great job of presenting material that was appropriate for our variety of age groups/couples. EVERYONE was enjoying his comedy and thought he was funny and felt engaged. Thank you for your time, especially after some flight delays/cancellations, it meant a lot to us that he made such an effort."
St. Matthias Parish
"John Felts did a fantastic job at our fundraising event! Our crowd had a wide range of ages and he managed to get everyone laughing! It was a very clean act that worked perfectly for our church crowd. John was very organized, put forth effort to learn about us beforehand, and was a joy to work with. We would definitely recommend him!"
"John Felts’ comedy show was exactly what we were looking for and more. John was the perfect mix of comedy and real conversation about current issues in our personal lives and in our world. On top of that, John Felts is just a great person to hang out with. John genuinely wanted to know about the church and how it was doing. John also wanted to know about the community so that he could fit the overall show to the community to touch as many people with laughter as possible. His personal touches, stories, and relevancy reached the oldest woman in our audience right down to the teenage students. Would we highly recommend John Felts? OH YEAH!!"
Lake Junaluska Conference & Retreat Center
"John Felts performed at one of our Winter Youth Retreats in front of a multi-denominational audience of about fifteen youth groups from churches across the Southeastern US. The youth and adults alike laughed constantly as he shared jokes and observations about parenting, youth group leadership and particiaption, church life, school life, marriage and more. He took time before his show to learn more about who was present in the audience and drew from that to ensure the audience felt he knew and understood them. He communicated well prior to the engagement, was on time for the show, worked well with our event leaders and tech crew, and showed real interest in our organization. I will certainly consider booking him again."
River Run Church
"John Felts was hilarious and spoke so well into family dynamics, interests our people have, life situations, and more. Our folks were laughing constantly, but the feedback we heard most was how much it meant to them that John took some of his own time to learn a little bit about the church and the area and be able to play off of that. To start out in a personal way and connect with our people on that level went over more than we can express. It was funny and light ribbing, but so meaningful in how it was tailored to our specific lives. We could not recommend John enough. Not only was he everything we just mentioned, he is an outstanding human as well. He was so gracious and helpful in working with our tech crew and the needs that he had for his show. He was humble as can be and helped make the day truly enjoyable all the way around. We still have people talking about it and will definitely be considering having him back in the future."
First United Methodist Church of Grenada, MS
"We brought John Felts in as our late night entertainment for our youth retreat. John Felts was super easy to work with from the get go. He was a great addition to our retreat this year. He related really well to middle school and high school students. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great clean comedy act."
The Refuge Church
"This was our second year to have John Felts as our Christmas party entertainment. We were not disappointed. John is extremely funny. Very personable and always a joy to have. If you are looking for someone who will take a personal approach to your event and and keep your group entertained, I highly recommend John Felts."
"John Felts killed it! Everyone had a great time and as we encounter people who were there the first thing they say is they loved the comedian! He helped us make a good impression on the people who we believe will be key to bringing our ministry into the next chapter of its evolution, and that is very important to us and the ladies we serve and will serve."
