"I would like to share how much we enjoyed John Felts, both as a professional and a comedian. He was stellar! He contacted me beforehand regarding information about the business and a little insight into our employee's personalities. He mingled prior to the performance as a guest, so the employees were pleasantly surprised to see him introduced as a comedian. John managed to connect with several of our employee's unique qualities and seamlessly brought them into the act. Bridge Valley employees and their guest are still talking about John Felts! Thanks for the laughs!"

Service Specialist, Networking Event in Grand Rapids, MI review of Andy Beningo

"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! She was the perfect ending for our program - just the way we like to send everyone home - with smiles on their faces and joy in their hearts as they head home to face all the craziness of life on the farm! Thanks again."

"This event with David Ferrell was an overwhelming success! Best turnout to one of these events... 450+! The most we've had in the past was 275. Standing Ovation at the end... and I believe David sold out of his DVD."
