Joe was great! Everything about the show was fantastic. The kids and families were very engaged and entertained. Joe kept everyone involved and encouraged kids to participate. The characters kept coming out of his sleeve. He’s super friendly and reaches out to the kids in so many ways. You couldn’t tell it was a virtual show based on the kids’ reaction. At the end of the show he even taught the kids some secrets of the profession! Highly recommended!

Joe Gandelman’s Response:

Thank you SO MUCH for inviting "us" to do our VIRTUAL SHOW with the more than 20 families!! It was an honor of being part of your event! Zoom as usually worked fine for a show and I'm now working on learning how to use another platform which is better for future shows (Zoom will also be available as an option).

When you're stuck at home and there's social distancing rules in your state, you have very limited options on activities for your kid's birthday. Enter Joe Gandelman's virtual puppet show! My daughter, her friends, and all the parents were very entertained with Joe's comedy and his ventriloquy skills. He communicated very well on what to expect during the show and showed up early on Zoom to do a quick sound/video check to reduce any hiccups. Highly recommend Joe Gandelman for virtual shows to add some smiles and laughter during these times.

He is great. The children and staff really enjoy having him every year. He treats the kids with respect and has patience with them as he teaches them how to perform. He gives every child a turn if he can. Thank you

Joe gave the perfect performance to an audience that ranged from 2 years old through 6th grade. He was engaging and got the kids involved in the performance. The kids loved hIs cast of characters. He taught them some secrets on ventriloquism and let them join him on stage. I highly recommend him to entertain at your event. He offers good, clean,wholesome fun! Thanks Joe! #gandypro, #joegandelman #familyentertainer.com

Joe had so many puppets! The kids were entertained the entire time. My son was treated so special by Joe. He was made the center of attention ! The kids were so excited to get to try out the puppet and learn how to do what he does. My 8 year old son told me his party was “fantastic!” We couldn’t be happier with the entire performance!
