President, Annual Meeting in Sandwich, IL review of Jerry Carroll

"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."

Divisional Seed Manager, Top Producer Meeting in Mt Vernon, IL review of Jerry Carroll

"I have received nothing but rave reviews about John Felts. He did his homework to learn about our University before arriving and utilized the unique components of Judson in his routine. He even used a couple of pictures from our website and the students just loved the fun he poked at their university. Homecoming could be a unique challenge for a comedian as the audience is comprised of both current students as well as alumni from different generations. However, his humor was enjoyed by all as much of the jokes were personal to a common experience - Judson University. John arrived in advance of his scheduled time and took the opportunity to connect with some students as well as the Tech Producer for the event. John made sure that none of his jokes would be inappropriate by running some of them by me in advance of his performance. Needless to say, he was always appropriate, yet very funny."

Director of Alumni Relations, Homecoming in Elgin, IL review of John Felts

"John Felts was exactly what I was hoping for. He exceeded my expectations and did a superb job during his performance. His connection with the audience was dynamic and real, his material was funny and relevant and original. He was very low maintenance and needed very little from us. He reflects very highly on your agency and I know that people in the audience were thinking how they might be able to bring him to an event of their own. Nobody laughs enough about good and healthy things. John helped us do this!"

Office for Marriage & Family Life Director, Valentine's Day Celebration in Springfield, IL review of John Felts

"This was the second time we had John Felts at our church, and he exceeded our expectations. It was so nice to work with a performer who is not only extremely talented and entertaining, but also so great to work with. It was clear from the beginning that his primary goal was to make the whole experience incredible for everyone. He was flexible to meet our needs. He is humble and professional at the same time. The kids LOVED him and the adults LOVED him. The feedback we have received has been tremendous."

Executive Pastor, Volunteer Appreciation Dinner in O'Fallon, IL review of John Felts

"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."

Manager, Training and Development, Crop Insurance Academy in Champaign, IL review of Jerry Carroll

"The event was very successful. Lyndy was very engaging and the audience enjoyed his show very much. He was professional and yet very warm and connected with everyone very well. I really appreciated that both you and Lyndy reached out prior to the event, and didn't leave it entirely up to me to follow-up. You both always answered my emails and questions very quickly. Thank you for everything!"

Sr Business Development Officer, Summer Conference in Chicago, IL review of Jerry Carroll

"The banquet entertainment from Jerry Carroll was a huge success. I have had so many people comment on how they connected with Jerry and actually got his message. They really did appreciate the opportunity to listen to his stories growing up and relating to him. His closing was my favorite part of the whole show, he brought up the part about Paul Harvey's speech God Made A Farmer. Thank you again. If you need any references for his future engagements please don't hesitate to use my name."
