Our organization hired Brett for a 200 guest fundraising event. Brett was accommodating from start to finish. I knew he was going to be good when I first heard his voice on the phone. What an INCREDIBLE speaking voice! He took our organizations purpose very seriously, and got to know us before the big day. He knows his stuff! He was able to help us set up the room for the best lighting and sound for a fabulous show. He has lots of energy. And HE WAS VERY VERY FUNNY!!!! He even incorporated the audience into the show. We loved it and had many compliments from our guests. I would recommend Brett in a heartbeat. Look no further…. Don’t miss this guy!

Brett performed at my 50th B-day Party. A ½ hour show while guests were enjoying dinner. He was absolutely HYSTERICAL! EVERY ONE of my guests (ages 13-75) thought he did a wonderful job. He totally made my party a success! Prior to the party, I gave him specifics about me to use in his material. A perfect combo of his routine & some jokes about me. No “off-color” humor; he was extremely funny, charismatic & personable. It is quite obvious that he loves what he does; it absolutely shows in his performance. Laughter is the best medicine…. but not a “hang-over” cure LOL I would definitely hire him again & I highly recommend that you hire him too.

Brett was wonderful!!! The audience were cancer survivors / patients and he certainly got their mind off what they were dealing with. One person said the key to getting through what they are dealing with is laughter and Brett certainly delivered that!! We were running a little behind and it didn't bother him one bit. Brett was very accommodating to all of our requests.

Brett is a VERY funny man! Our crowd ranges from 18 to 85 and he gave everyone something to laugh about. He did a Hip-Hop Country DJ rap that is totally hilarious! We at Hanson Mold would definitely recommend Brett for your corporate event.

I hired Brett to roast my husband at his 50th B-day party. Brett collected background information on my husband from me and our friends and incorporated it in his comedy routine. He brought lots of adequate props. He also, included audience in his performance. Everybody had lots of fun! Brett is a talented performer who can feel the audience and adjust quickly to their sense of humor. He has also a very nice personality.

Brett Walkow is one of those rare talents who has clearly been working at his craft for most of his life; he is funny by INSTINCT, not just through his rigorous preparations. At our event, Brett threw himself into a comedic role (that is, before he actually performed a high quality stand up set as himself) as a character, and was as convincing as Brando ever was. He quoted a very fair fee at the start and from there went on to go above-and-beyond the original contracted plan. I could not have been happier to have Brett's imaginative and creative energy at my event. I would recommend him most highly to anyone who prefers Miracle Whip over your plan old mayo.

Brett made sure my event went off the way I planned. He was my right hand man for two months and come show time, was a great comedian and emcee. Brett helped me raise $7500 in my first attempt at a birthday stand up comedy fundraiser. Hire Brett.

Our corporate banquet was held on a Monday evening following a very long day of lectures. Our doc's and staff were tired and ready to end the day until Bret took the mic. His humor was exactly what we needed and we plan to have him return next year. He did a great brining laughter into what we do as sleep doc's. Thanks a million Bret!
