Derick, thank you so much for accommodating our last minute booking. You saved the day! Hilarious, wildly funny, and able to connect with our large and diverse audience without making anyone feel excluded, I'm impressed with your versatility and adaptability. You catered to our rather complex needs beautifully and rolled with the typical convention planning foibles like a champ.We will definitely be hiring you for our next convention, per the express request of several of our board members and consumers! They listed you as the best and "most valuable" and "informative" part of the whole 4 day event. Thank you again.You are a rockstar!

Derick was fantastic! He had several of my residents and staff crying with laughter. He was so accommodating and friendly- incredibly easy to work with. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a good gut-busting laugh.

Derick was accommodating to our needs as a company. He was very sociable and easy to get along with! We really enjoyed having him. I highly recommend Derick if you need a comedy act for your event. At one point my boyfriend had to take off his glasses because they were fogging up from him laughing so hard! We all truly had a great time. My coworkers are raving about it and I even had a board member call this morning to tell me it was the best holiday party he's attended so far! Thanks again!
