Country comedian Jerry harvests a bumper crop of high hilarity in his fast-paced, high-energy show about everyday life. His relatable topics crack up the most hard-to-please crowds.
Jerry found comedy growing up on his family's farm. For 20 years, he worked the farm before finally pursuing his life's dream of entertaining people and making them laugh.
Jerry's seemingly effortless ability to spin out punch line after punch line, story after story, took him from emcee to headliner in just eight short months. Since beginning in 1993, Jerry has performed for crowds from 20 to 20,000 in venues ranging from the local volunteer fire department's banquet, to the Minister's of Provincial Parliament at the Royal York in Toronto, Canada. Everywhere he goes, he leaves audiences roaring with laughter.
Besides corporate meeting and events, conventions, countless associations, comedy clubs, and country clubs, Jerry has opened concerts for music artists such as Michael Bolton, Patty Loveless, Lyle Lovett, and Larry Gatlin. Jerry has performed from coast to coast in the U.S. and throughout Canada.
When he's not on the road making people laugh, Jerry still works the fields of his family's farm. This experience makes him one of the nation's most sought-after speakers for agricultural related events.
Make your next event a huge success with this hilarious farmer, speaker, and country comedian.
