From the very beginning Mr Lawson was professional. He asked for detail background information about me so that he could incorporate it in the act. My family and friends enjoyed his clean act and most of all he was a big hit ! My birthday party could not have been any better. He takes his this comedy act seriously and puts his heart and soul into what he does. It was nice finding someone from Va that could connect with folks at my party and possibly drum up more bookings. If we have anything again we will be sure to book with James Lawson. I also wanted to say he arrived on time and the booking fees were reasonable.

Mr. Lawson did an awesome job entertaining the guest of my graduation celebration. Prior to the event, Mr. Lawson asked for a bio of the graduates and from the information bios, he developed some funny punchlines and jokes. The guest were very pleased with Mr. Lawson's performance.

James was awesome! He was a huge hit with our difficult crowd which ranged in age from mid-30's to 80's! He was funny, but clean, and had everyone begging for his contact information after his performance. I highly recommend James, and look forward to doing future events with him.

Mr. Lawson arrived early to introduce himself and his wife. We inquired about the sound (mics) and took pictures of the venue. Despite hearing some tragic news before his set, he managed to perform without a hitch. He was professional and flexible as he had to wait for us to finalize his payout. Most of all, he was simply hilarious! I would highly recommend him. He does not offend nor use the audience to make fun of but relates his skit to everyday living - enjoyable clean fun for all.

One of the best indicators that someone really enjoyed themselves at a comedy show, is days later you hear people trying to retell the jokes. James left that impression on everyone that night. He made getting old sound really cool and funny.
