"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."
