"We had a VERY successful event, raised a good amount of money and elevated awareness for our organization - hitting our main goals! This is in large part due to the excellent quality of comedians you helped us select. Rob (Pue), Mayce (Galoni) and Jeff (Elliott) were absolutely FUNNY, quick on their feet, prompt and so easy to deal with. I’d also like to thank you for making the whole booking process easy and for walking me through the logistics of planning out a comedy night! Your experience really helped us organize a very well-run event! We’ve had great feedback from our attendees and the consensus is: “when’s the next one?”."
- Ailleen S, Community of Hearts, Guelph ON

"The entire process to book the event through to the actual show was extremely easy. The comedians you provided were extremely professional; they showed up early and spent some time getting to know a bit about us which they incorporated into their act. They did an absolutely fantastic job of not only engaging the group, but had us laughing from start to finish. Everyone absolutely loved the show and have been talking about it ever since. We’ll definitely be doing this again!"

"Since 2005 we have hired comedians to perform at our Christmas party. I must admit that in the past, our choices were not as funny or entertaining as Peter Anthony. Peter was HILARIOUS! A pleasure to work with and he worked the crowd quite well! He had everyone including our CEO in stitches. It is late Monday afternoon and I am still hearing these words "Man, that comedian was freakin' hilarious!" Peter even held his ground with the hecklers. Peter is funny, talented, punctual and very polite when he's not performing. We at PPFD would love to have Peter Anthony perform for us again."
- Denise R, PPFD Ltd

"I can't thank you enough for pulling together such a great show for Hockley! It really was stellar & I consider myself a tough critic! Tony was key in the success of the show - he was amazing & obviously has great instincts - used the crowd to really enhance the experience! With such a successful show, I am sure Hockley is becoming a recognized great venue to host Yuk Yuks for our valued guests. I just hope I (we) can put together this calibre of a show for all our future bookings. We are looking at booking a new date already... "

Alex Wood

Wood

"It was great! Exactly the way I would have wanted it to go. It was a good mix of crowd - young and old - which is what I wanted. I think that naturally makes it harder for the comedians but they did a great job. And Alex was a great sport with the pants. It was hysterical. I have heard nothing but good things about the event. Everyone was really pleased and thought it was a great show. The general consensus was that it was a well done event and that we should look into doing it annually. Which I am SO pleased about! I think it was a good mix of comedy between both Alex Wood and Don Kelly. I thought there was something for everyone. Both James and I were very happy. Thanks so much again for all of your help and hard work here Howard."

"I would like to take this opportunity to let you know how much we enjoyed Mr & Mrs. H. Despite winter weather, they arrived to our rural town earlier than expected of them. They socialized with the guests until joining us for dinner. I had the pleasure of sitting with them at dinner and enjoyed their company very much. They were so super friendly and enthusiastic that I know they would fit into any venue. When it was their time to entertain, they welcomed the crowd and put everyone at ease before requesting volunteers. The onlooking crowd was pleasantly surprised by the participants antics. Everyone agreed it was a terrific program and an enjoyable evening. Thank you for assisting us with planning our event. "

"Thanks again for arranging to have Jeff Elliott perform at our function. He was just great and his act was definitely the highlight of my husbands party! He was very very funny and he worked our crowd perfectly, and he is a very nice person as well. I can't tell you how many people called me after our party to comment on how great Jeff was and how much they enjoyed his show. I imagine a house party is much harder to work than a staged performance, because you don't know what to expect and Jeff was fabulous. He truly is a wonderful comedian and a true seasoned performer."
