"Larry Weaver did a phenomenal job. Not only did he exceed our expectations, he went above and beyond. His award ceremony was on point and he made the crowd shed tears for about an hour straight. Highly recommend for any event."
- Director of Operations, Company Party
"Larry Weaver's performance exceeded my expectations. All of the feedback that I have received has been extremely positive. One of the directors in attendance remarked that this was the best service awards banquet she has ever attended. A couple of the other directors in attendance indicated that they thoroughly enjoyed the entertainment. Larry was very prompt, arriving well ahead of the start of the banquet. Very professional and brought attire to ensure he was dressed appropriately for the occasion. The material he used was both clean & appropriate and related well to the audience he was addressing. The directors enjoyed picking out 'funny awards' that related to their employees and I believe the employees enjoyed receiving these awards at the banquet. Prior to the event, Larry was very responsive in replying to our request to book entertainment and always followed up and through in a timely manner. It was truly a pleasure meeting him. Thank you."
- Human Resource Generalist, Employee Service Awards Banquet
"Larry Weaver was a huge hit at our company Christmas Party. His act was the perfect blend of customized company humor and general humor. The funny employee awards were the icing on the cake of his performance. His clean yet hilarious jokes allowed the group of diverse employees to bond. Employees raved about him after the event, especially the CEO. He said that he's never laughed as hard as he did that night. Thanks Larry for making me look good for my boss! Not only was he awesome the night of the party, but working with him before the event was a breeze. He was professional, organized and friendly. I would recommend Larry to any group or company to spice up their next event."
