 Speakers and Entertainers in Greenville, NC

"Joshua Lozoff was absolutely fantastic! If I could rate him with 10 stars, I would. He kept our employees laughing, guessing and having fun during our 2 Million Hour Safety Celebration - we couldn't have asked for a better performer! A day after the event I'm still getting emails from employees about how much they enjoyed his show. Everyone agrees that his personality and performance made this one of the best events our company has had in it's 104 year existence."

Safety Specialist, Two Million Hour Safety Celebration in Greenville, NC review of Joshua Lozoff

"Joshua Lozoff is a fantastic entertainer. And not just the magic! He is so endearing to any audience member, both up close and on stage. All of our attendees were simply captivated and raved about his performance. And much of the time was filled with laughter. Josh is so fun. We will absolutely bring Life Is Magic back for our event!"

Program Director, Annual Fundraiser in Durham, NC review of Joshua Lozoff

"Steve did a wonderful job making us all feel we were part of the entertainment. Great humor that made everyone laugh and feel good.

I even had some come by my desk later and stated that they would gladly pay to see a performance like that. HE WAS GREAT."

"Joshua Lozoff was great!"

Community Engagement Division, Neighborhood Exchange in Raleigh, NC review of Joshua Lozoff

"John Felts was amazing! This was the second time we had hosted a John Felts Clean Comedy Show in the past 15 months. When John first came, he kept our folks in stitches laughing so hard, for a full 75 minutes! This next time – he did it again! John has a unique way of connecting with his audience, with folks of all ages. He does this, among other things, with a self-deprecating approach that is genuine, and that draws the audience to himself. His engagement of folks in the organization he is working with is another thing that sets him apart. I love how he perused our social media pages and uses what he finds to add to his show. He makes the audience feel that they themselves are a part of the show. John’s energy is boundless. There is no organization for which I would not recommend him! There is no better entertainment value!"

 Speakers and Entertainers in La Grange, NC

"John Felts was amazing!! He customized his material to fit the group - it was absolutely perfect. He had us rolling on the floor with laughter. He connected with everyone in the audience. The material and delivery was just simply amazing. I lost count of the members that told me that this was one of the best nights of their life and that they hadn't laughed this much in years. John has a wonderful personality and was professional at every moment. We could not have been any more satisfied with John's performance."

Event Planner, Member Appreciation Banquet in La Grange, NC review of John Felts

"John Felts was one of two featured comedians on the bill of our Comedy Show for racial unification. He was hilarious and had the very diverse crowd fired up and laughing very quickly. He's a real pro. We also very much appreciated the clean comedy and felt John's jokes were very tasteful. He was also great interacting with the crowd. Everyone I spoke to after the event was saying how much the enjoyed him. We definitely hope to have him back sometime soon."

Assistant to the Director Superintendent, Comedy Show in Wilmington, NC review of John Felts

"Arthur knocked it out of the ballpark last week at my event – my guests are STILL talking about him! It is NOT an easy task to awe a room full of engineers, but Arthur did. I received your survey and am drafting the right words to describe his outstanding performance. He is an amazing magician and wonderful person."

Executive Project Manager, Engineers Meeting in Charlotte, NC review of Arthur Atsma
 Speakers and Entertainers in Farmville, NC

"Larry Weaver captivated our audience with humor related to our field of interest (safety and construction) but emphasized the importance of having a clean and safe work place at the same time. He showed interest in the audience by wanting to learn more about our company and the people, and used that information to appeal to the audience even more. His Southern charm and sense of humor related to our audience and provided a much needed laugh as we celebrated 15 years accident free, which is unheard of in our industry. He demonstrated professionalism through his courteous demeanor and respect for our audience with good, wholesome comedy. His performance was definitely a game changer when it comes to the guest speakers we look for in our awards ceremonies! Our audience really enjoyed his personality, and he was a pleasure to work with."

We didn't want his performance to end! The entire staff could not stop raving about how amazing he was! Everyone was captivated from start to finish.
