"Larry Weaver is funny, smart and professional! Our firm hosted a virtual bingo for clients. Larry performed stand-up and acted as the emcee for bingo. Not only was he funny but everyone was really impressed with his trivia knowledge. Larry was so easy to work with and was 100% prepared due to outstanding pre-show communication and professionalism. We would 100% work with Larry Weaver again!"

Global Administrative Assistant, Marriage Conference in Durham, NC review of Joshua Lozoff

"AMAZING performance! Tony was even better than we had hoped! We had a corporate event with a fantastic performer the night before, so I was nervous. But-MAN!!!! Tony blew us away in the best way! We laughed from the moment he got on stage. He was professional, well spoken, had researched our company to make the performance relevant, and performed with clean fun comedy. For about an hour everyone in the audience just laughed and had the best time! The comment I most heard after was "My cheeks hurt from laughing so much!" Even better, Tony was just fantastic with our clients and staff. He hung out with us after, was so personable and just a great addition to the group. If you are looking for a dynamic entertainer with impeccible timing, clean humor that appeals to all ages and audiences, Tony is the man!"

Joshua provides the opportunity for audience participation to keep folks engaged and he has a real talent for putting people at ease even when they are on stage in front of 100+ people. Thank you for a wonderfully entertaining evening!"

"Joshua Lozoff has entertained our company Christmas parties many, many times and never disappoints us!!

Financial Coordinator, Company Christmas Party in Durham, NC review of Joshua Lozoff

"Joshua Lozoff was amazing! Easy to book a performance with him, he responded quickly to emails. He spoke with the venue and coordinated with them to make sure all of his needs were met. He set everything up on his own and was not only on time, he was early and ready to go right when the party started. I just sat back and enjoyed the show. Everyone had a blast and was dumbfounded about how he was able to pull off his tricks. The strolling magic is a must have, it's the perfect ice breaker and it helped everyone loosen up at the start of the party. My only regret is that we didn't book him for our previous parties."

Training Manager, Partnership Conference in Greensboro, NC review of Mike Goodwin
 Speakers and Entertainers in Greensboro, NC

"We were honored to engage speaker Larry Weaver for our Second Annual Safety Symposium for the Greensboro District of the United States Postal Service. After researching speakers for our event, we were unanimously convinced that Larry Weaver was the right choice. We understood the gravity and importance of getting the right speaker, and the challenge of meeting the needs of our audience. Bottom line, Larry Weaver presented flawlessly, connecting all of us through his humor, personal stories, and day-to-day life applications ...Our event consisted of our Area Vice President, Area, Human Resources Manager, District Manager, Higher-Level local postal managers and postmasters, supervisors, city carriers, rural carriers, clerks, and custodians. Regardless of your rank in the organization, at the end of the day, we all can connect over humor about food, family, and frustrations. Humor is a universal antidote, breaking down barriers, and connecting us on a base level. Larry did not disappoint. I watched our District Manager from time to time, as the bar was high to make sure he was pleased. From a distance, it was obvious he was enjoying the presentation by the verbal and visual feedback he was giving. Later in speaking with him personally, he noted that Mr. Weaver was perfect for the event. Thank you Larry Weaver for being a part of our special event. It was the perfect puzzle piece to tie everything together that day for us."
