"Andrew was a huge hit and perfect for our event!"

"Andrew was fantastic! Our group loved the show and the only complaint is that he could not be up there longer! The booking process was great and I would not hesitate to use you again. Thank you for everything and we will be in touch."

"We had Andrew Grose at our meeting on Tuesday and everyone is still talking about his performance. He was wonderful, exactly what we needed on the last day of our conference. I was concerned before the performance as our group is quite conservative, but Andrew kept everything clean and kept everyone laughing. He was a fantastic addition to our conference."

"The show with Andrew was fantastic. We made the right choice for entertainment. I had numerous comments from attendees on a great choice. The booking process was simple; I am completely satisfied with all aspects of this transaction."

"Nancy I would just like to thank you and Andrew for such a wonderful evening. Andrew went way beyond the call of duty for the food banks and not one person did not leave that event feeling rejuvenated and happy. Andrew was amazing and there were a few comments from the political side saying we need to get him to some of our events. So who knows what will come of his great performance."

"All was great with Andrew and the same with booking process. Really good chance we will be talking to you for more bookings. Thanks for all the great work you did."

"We thought Andrew’s show was hilarious."

"Andrew did an excellent job entertaining our crowd, and I received a lot of positive comments after he left. Overall A+ for good content, kept the audience engaged, and many laughs happened throughout the evening. "

"Andrew was fantastic!! He was right on time and so was the catering staff. Our room had a seating capacity of 100 and we had sold 110 tickets. For the meal there where tables on the dance floor so poor Andrew had no room to move. If he put his arms out on each side he would be touching the audience. Coziest gig I bet he has ever done. "

"Over the past years attendance at the Christmas Party has been going down each year. Starting in 2007 I have been trying to cancel the whole event and just hold one party for the children. After this year and with the help of Andrew that is no longer an option. In the past there was always some staff who thought they could do the party better. Critical of one thing or another. This year our Social Committee has not heard one negative comment just praises for the entertainment."

"Andrew was VERY well-received. I thought one of our Directors was going to fall out of his chair he was laughing so hard! Andrew is very experienced and definitely played to the crowd."

"The show was great. The audience loved him."

"The show was a hit, it was constant histerics. Andrew came in at a perfect time and read the crowd well. The whole experience getting Andrew was painless well organized! thanks again for the great rate it really put the dessert on the event."

"Andrew was a hit! He was friendly, personable and great with our clients. He definitely had—and made—some fans in our audience! He kept the night flowing but at a reasonable pace, and he was very accommodating when it turned out that we were running significantly ahead of schedule. "
