Graduation PartyReviewed on May 30, 2009From Brant, NY

Nels was hired for a college graduation party with attendees of all ages. Every person present had a GREAT time and we REALLY enjoyed him! There were lots of laughs and audience interaction, he was hysterical! Can’t wait to have another event so that we can hire him again!!!
