Recent Testimonials

"Thanks so much to Lyndy Phillips for coming and entertaining at our annual banquet. We had such positive feedback on his performance. Everyone enjoyed the performance, and they were delighted about the crowd participation. The younger kids were totally enthused with his magic tricks. Again thank you so much for a STRESS FREE evening. Looking forward to the next year’s banquet." - Board of Directors, Whiteside County Cattlemen's Association Annual Banquet in Morrison, IL

"Jerry Carroll was hilarious. Best entertainment in a long time. Super pleased with him and his show. Would recommend to anyone." - President, Kendall-Grundy Beef Association Annual Meeting in Sandwich, IL

"Jerry Carroll did a bang up job. He arrived at our meeting 30 minutes prior to dinner. He mixed with the crowd before and after the meeting. He even worked one of our products into his presentation. He told good, down-to-earth stories, one right after the other. People actually had tears of laughter rolling down their cheeks. Everyone has raved about him since his program. I would recommend him to anybody for an after dinner speaker. He is all country. We might try to have him back next year." - Divisional Seed Manager, Crop Production Services Top Producer Meeting in Mt. Vernon, IL

"I have received nothing but rave reviews about John Felts. He did his homework to learn about our University before arriving and utilized the unique components of Judson in his routine. He even used a couple of pictures from our website and the students just loved the fun he poked at their university. Homecoming could be a unique challenge for a comedian as the audience is comprised of both current students as well as alumni from different generations. However, his humor was enjoyed by all as much of the jokes were personal to a common experience – Judson University. John arrived in advance of his scheduled time and took the opportunity to connect with some students as well as the Tech Producer for the event. John made sure that none of his jokes would be inappropriate by running some of them by me in advance of his performance. Needless to say, he was always appropriate, yet very funny." - Director of Alumni Relations, Judson University Homecoming in Elgin, IL

"Lyndy Phillips was awesome!! He connected with the people of our Church immediately. Our theme was "Spread the JOY", and he greatly incorporated it into his performances. He was able to connect with everyone from young to old. Lyndy was with us for a weekend event (Saturday and Sunday) and performed an Outreach event on Saturday and then did our morning worship on Sunday. We had a lot of questions and Lyndy was very timely and responsive to any question that we had. Lyndy had God's message to share and was much more that we had ever imagined! Our Church would highly recommend him for any event!" - Evangelism/Publicity, First Reformed Church of Wichert Community Outreach Banquet in St. Anne, IL

"I'm so glad that I found your website and services. I don't know what I would have done without you. You are very prompt in responding to inquiries; yet do not pressure people to make a decision. I look forward to researching more of your performers for our event next year!" - Office for Marriage & Family Life Director, Catholic Diocese of Springfield, IL Valentine's Day Celebration in Springfield, IL

"John Felts was exactly what I was hoping for. He exceeded my expectations and did a superb job during his performance. His connection with the audience was dynamic and real, his material was funny and relevant and original. He was very low maintenance and needed very little from us. He reflects very highly on your agency and I know that people in the audience were thinking how they might be able to bring him to an event of their own. Nobody laughs enough about good and healthy things. John helped us do this!" - Office for Marriage & Family Life Director, Catholic Diocese of Springfield, IL Valentine's Day Celebration in Springfield, IL

"This was the second time we had John Felts at our church, and he exceeded our expectations. It was so nice to work with a performer who is not only extremely talented and entertaining, but also so great to work with. It was clear from the beginning that his primary goal was to make the whole experience incredible for everyone. He was flexible to meet our needs. He is humble and professional at the same time. The kids LOVED him and the adults LOVED him. The feedback we have received has been tremendous." - Executive Pastor, Skyline Church Volunteer Appreciation Dinner in O'Fallon, IL

"Having Mr. Lyndy Phillips as our convention banquet entertainment was an excellent choice by our meeting planner and conference committee. It was evident by his program that he had taken the initiative to learn the dynamics and characteristics of our diverse association membership. The ability to connect with his audience the way he did is not an easy task. Our members enjoyed the program and appreciated his attention to detail regarding down home local government in Illinois! I would recommend Mr. Phillips for any convention that needs an opportunity to laugh and enjoy themselves!" - Associate Director & Education Coordinator, Township Officials of Illinois Annual Educational Conference in Springfield, IL

"The event was very successful. Lyndy Phillips was very engaging and the audience enjoyed his show very much. He was professional and yet very warm and connected with everyone very well. I really appreciated that both you and Lyndy reached out prior to the event, and didn't leave it entirely up to me to follow-up. You both always answered my emails and questions very quickly. Thank you for everything!" - VP of Marketing, Security Savings Bank Agriculture Appreciation Dinner in Monmouth, IL

"Jerry Caroll was great. He was always on time and well prepared. He did a great job entertaining our group and had a good message, as well." - Sr Business Development Officer, ProPartners Financial Summer Conference in Chicago, IL

"The banquet entertainment from Jerry Carroll was a huge success. I have had so many people comment on how they connected with Jerry and actually got his message. They really did appreciate the opportunity to listen to his stories growing up and relating to him. His closing was my favorite part of the whole show, he brought up the part about Paul Harvey's speech God Made A Farmer. Thank you again. If you need any references for his future engagements please don't hesitate to use my name." - Board of Directors, Whiteside County Cattlemen's Assn Annual Banquet in Morrison, IL
