"Kudos for a
wonderful job at our Annual Awards Dinner. Your presentation of
the WACE Engineering Excellence Awards was the hit of the evening.

our audience's attention." -- Carol
Virginia Chamber of Commerce:
"On behalf of the
planning committee for the 51st Virginia Conference on World
Trade, thank you for providing such a hilariously entertaining
performance at the Awards Banquet. We have never heard 500 people
laugh so hard and so long.
You grabbed the audience
in about 30 seconds, which demonstrates how deep our collective
frustration level is with modern technology. Your routine is right
on target, and your rapid-fire ad-libs and interaction with the
audience added to the enjoyment. We have received tremendous
positive feedback about your performance. It was, without
question, the highlight of the banquet and one of the most
enjoyable presentations we have ever had." -- Hugh Keogh, President
"On behalf of Mitel
Corporation and our North American sales staff and senior
management, I want to let you know how much we enjoyed your stand-up
routine. The high tech, business content
was bang-on, so much in fact that many in the audience felt that it
had been developed just for them. In our post-event feedback
questionnaire, your entertainment was rated as the highlight of
the week-long event." -- Janis A. Downey, Manager,
"Thank you for your
outstanding performance at our Reseller Conference. We have
received several phone calls from our resellers telling us how
much they enjoyed your show. Your stand-up routine set the tone
for our conference, allowing our resellers to get ready to learn
about the products, communicate and 'relax.'
We were very impressed at
your ability to prepare for the session, gathering all the
information you could about our company and portraying the
'humorous' side of doing business. You possess an amazing gift
that was not only entertaining, but a learning experience as well.
Thanks for making those of us who planned the conference look
great!" -- Kathleen A. Lavoie,

"I want to thank you
for a wonderful performance at our Client Forum. Our Closing
Reception was a hit! Our event brings in
clients from all over the nation and from a variety of
disciplines. Catering to all their interests is definitely a
challenge! However, when we saw your act last year, we knew you
were a 'must-have' for our event.
Your understanding of
technology made our clients feel as though they were 'understood.'
We really appreciate the effort you put forth learning about our company
and incorporating that knowledge into your act, making the
performance specifically tailored for A.P.I.
Client feedback rated your
performance as the highlight of our conference!"
