James put on a good show. Was funny and kept us laughing.


It was a true pleasure. I was overwhelmed by the standing ovation encouraged by the hostess, along with the many laughs and compliments I received. I also appreciate the text message ensuring me how much the family enjoyed the performance. Im sorry that I was still unable to earn a five star rating , but rest assured it was an absolute honor to be a part of such a special event. Thank you again for the booking.

Retirement PartyReviewed on June 27, 2023From Newport News, VA

Mr. Lawson was one of the funnest/best comedians I’ve had the experience of seeing. His material can rival the Hollywood professionals. The quality of his material was clean, relatable & extremely funny. He was very accommodating, professional, punctual & down-to-earth. He had the crowd laughing during his entire routine. He was phenomenal! Definitely five stars!!!

James was great! I enjoyed his jokes and he made everyone at my birthday laugh, which was not an easy task with all age groups. He was awesome and I will definitely book with him again.

From the first inquiry until the day of the event, James communicated promptly and professionally. His comedy was funny and relatable. We booked him for a celebratory event for our leadership team and he was a hit. He kept the jokes coming and he engaged the the audience in a light humored way that made them eager to respond. Thanks James for the laughs and we will definitely keep you on the radar for future bookings.

Mr Lawson was punctual, professional and entertaining. He made the best of an event gone awry because of the rain. He lifted everyo spirits and I would recommend him fully to anyone looking for a premium act. Thank you so much.

We are still laughing days later. James took the time to research our church's special occasion and personalized his routine. He truly is a great comedian and entertainer. Praying many blessings for him.

Awesome comedy performance! Even though virtual environments can be very difficult, James made us laugh as though we were all in a traditional show. Awesome job, very funny!

Mr. Lawson was great from start to finish! He was very much involved in gathering information about my family. We had an awesome time and I would not hesitate in referring Mr. Lawson to others!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on February 1, 2021From Virginia Beach, VA

FIVE STARS across the board. We hired James to make my father's birthday on Zoom extra special. We may not have been able to go out and celebrate the traditional way but James really bridged the gap. He was clean, hilarious, and very professional. He reached out early to get more information about the guest of honor and test the technology. The show was funny, personalized and MEMORABLE! BOOK JAMES!

Great entertainer. Guests really enjoyed his set! He was the perfect person to meet our Anniversary engagement goals via Zoom.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on January 6, 2019From Lynchburg, VA

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.

Graduation PartyReviewed on May 15, 2018From Richmond, VA

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.

EventReviewed on October 21, 2017From Fayetteville, NC

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.
