Testimonials and Reviews
"Leslie Norris Townsend did an amazing job, exceeding all of our expectations!! Both Leslie and Larry Weaver Entertainment were an incredible pleasure to work in making preparations for the event date – very organized and accommodating. Leslie’s performance at the event – a “Girls’ Night Out Comedy Club” sponsored by our local, community-owned hospital - was nothing short of spectacular!! She was able to quickly gauge exactly what material was appropriate and best-suited for our particular group of ladies and gave a performance to be remembered by all! Her incredible skills, plus encouraged audience participation in parts of the show resulted in an entire room of laughing ladies who were pleased with the entire night! Thank you, Leslie!!!!!!" - Marketing Coordinator, Marshall Medical Centers Girls’ Night Out (Guntersville, AL)
