“John Felts provided us with exactly what we were looking for and more! Our goal was to provide an evening of fun and fellowship for our congregation and just enjoy being together. John masterfully made that happen! He communicated well before the event, arrived on time, and captured our folks full attention from the moment he walked on stage. He was very engaging, funny, and professional. The hour flew and I would definitely recommend him to any church or group looking for an evening of clean fun and laughter.”

“John Felts was fantastic to work with! He connected with our group on and off stage, keeping everyone in a great mood and always laughing. John was very professional and very much entertaining for the whole 60 minute performance. Its been a week since he performed and some of our leaders are still making comments about how good his performance was. This was our group’s first time hiring a comedian and because of our great experience with John Felts we will incorporating more comedians into our last meetings each year. I would recommend John to any company gathering.”

“John Felts was amazing to work with! He connected with me before the event to make sure he tailored his performance to our group (including “inside intel” about our Staff, Church and Town). In a room of 200 people, with ages ranging from 20 to 75+, John related to all in the audience and had us laughing from his first joke to his last! There was such a fun and positive vibe in the room, and it was clear that John is a master at connecting with his audience! The morning after our event, the church was a buzz and many were requesting that we bring John back for future events!”

“John Felts was very easy to work with leading up to our event and that set the tone for everything to follow. John was incredibly professional and also quite funny. It was nice to have a clean comedian that could make everyone in the room laugh without going blue. John connected with our audience and did a great job of keeping people engaged. A great talent, John would be perfect at any company event.”

“John Felts was fantastic both on and off the stage. He communicated frequently with us in the weeks before the event and mingled with our congregation when he got there. It is hard to find someone who excels at clean humor and John met our expectations and more. He was incredibly funny and took the time to customize his show to our church and community. John had over 200 people laughing and we sent him off with a standing ovation!”

“John exceeded my expectations. He responded to emails, texts, etc in a timely manner, even though it was his busy season. He was early to the church, which allowed our production team to be ahead of schedule. He was very professional as well as very personable. He made his show reflect who we are as a church, which was awesome. Our church was over the top excited that he was here and related very well to his show. They got into it. We will definitely have John Felts back to our church for future events and I will recommend him to anyone.”

“Our entertainer John Felts was perfect for our event. Very funny guy!! John introduced himself to me when I arrived at the party so I didn’t have to worry about him showing up. He was all set up and had coordinated sound and video with the staff. I have received several comments from my employees on how much they enjoyed his show and the fact that it was a clean show with no profanity or inappropriate innuendos. I would highly recommend John Felts.”

“John was entertaining, easy going and overall a perfect fit or our company party. He was early to the party and very professional when he arrived. John was easy to work with and took the time to connect with our employees. His research on the company was spot on and made the jokes that much better! Everyone enjoyed the party and several employees told me this was their favorite Christmas party so far and they have never laughed that much. John was truly entertaining!”

“John is simply everything you could ask for in an entertainer. HILARIOUS, fun, professional yet casual, and incredibly easy to work with. Our entire team loved him and raved for a week about how funny he was, and he was the perfect addition to our event, the highlight for most people who were surveyed.

On the planning side, John is very attentive and does an excellent job of customizing his performance. He made our group feel like he was simply one of us, which payed off big with lots of laughs. Again, I have to emphasize how easy it was working with John and how he simply OVER DELIVERED and EXCEEDED all of our expectations.

If you’re considering bringing in John for your event, do yourself a favor and just do it. Our group was a mixed bag of people, and everyone LOVED him. We will definitely look to bring him back in the future, and I can’t imagine and environment he wouldn’t be great in.

“I work for a Christian college ministry at UNCW and this is the third year we have invited John to perform at our Thanksgiving event. For weeks leading up to the event, we had students calling to make sure he was coming back and the night of the event the room was completely packed. He is funny, relatable, professional, easy to work with, and we completely trust him on stage. This event has turned into one of our biggest of the semester and we are looking forward to having John back in the future. For anyone looking for a trustworthy, entertaining comedian, I would highly recommend John.”

He arrived early, mingled with the crowd, picked out some great ones to pull up on stage, and made everyone feel right at home. The audience LOVED the dyslexic card trick. Too funny. We would recommend John to any group. Super super professional.”

“We absolutely enjoyed John Felts so much!! I feel certain he is the best entertainer we’ve had yet. John exceeded our expectations and made everyone laugh! He arrived when he said he would, very professional and courteous, and connected to the audience right away. We couldn’t have been happier, John was fantastic!!
Here’s an email we received following the evening with John Felts:”
“Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed last night’s dinner!  The food was good & I really enjoyed the comedian!  That he came from my home state just added to the enjoyment! haha!  Thanks for planning & having this dinner.  I thought it was a good turnout!  I’m not sure if John was expecting so many senior citizens, but he had a good handle on Robson Ranch! HaHa!!  Thanks again for a very enjoyable evening!”

“John was brilliant! We absolutely loved him. He was a joy to work with before, during, and after the performance. I have heard nothing but rave reviews from everyone who attended. He was so funny and relevant that everyone of every age was laughing. He was absolutely professional through every conversation we had with him and it made me confident I had made a good choice with him. He really exceeded every expectation that I had. I have been approached several times by community and church members telling me how much they loved him and what a great show it was. I literally had a hard time walking through service the next morning from people hugging and thanking me for finding him. They were still laughing and smiling about his show the next day! Before he even arrived, I knew he had put in so much effort to learn about this community and do research. I was so impressed with him. I could honestly go on for an hour about it lol. How much time you got this morning? I’ve had lots of people already ask if I’d bring him back next year. I’d bring him back WEEKLY if I could. I wish there were adjectives I could think of that were better than great, awesome, wonderful. We were able to raise about $2,500 the scholarship fund and I just could not be happier.”

“Just wanted to give you my comments about John Felts at our convention. He was absolutely awesome! He exceeded my expectations! His promptness, professionalism, personality and connection to the audience was spot on! His material was SO very funny. As the event planner for this event, I looked around the room while he was performing to see the response and EVERYONE WAS LAUGHING! It was good, clean material – and he was just plain hilarious! And what a fine young man to talk to. I fully expect to see him succeed in his field! I will be glad to give a reference, if needed. It would be my pleasure.”

He personalized the performance in our area to make it more heart felt. After the performance John took time out to spend with the people one on one. We were very impressed with his talent and personality. John kept in good communication with me through the whole time. We will definitely have him back.

“Oh my gosh – John Felts was amazing. He was so personable, friendly and extremely entertaining. I don’t think anyone stopped laughing once. He is so talented and funny and we were impressed with his ability to make the performance so personalized to our area and also be able to gear it towards an audience of varied faiths and ages. He also spent time afterwards with us for refreshments and made himself available for questions or just to talk. He really impressed everyone with his talent and personality. We were talking about having him come back in the fall if he is available. This was my first experience working with a talent agency or having a performer come to our parish. Thank you for making it such a great experience. Larry Weaver Entertainment was very accommodating, organized, friendly and easy to work with. I’ve also been spreading the word as well about your agency to other group leaders.” – Director of Religious Education,

“John was great at communicating with us before and after the event. Everyone had a wonderful evening!! The feedback has been very positive – yet again!! John is super to work with and has such a gift of improv. He just rolls with things and works off the crowd perfectly. This is the second time we have hosted John and have been extremely pleased both times. The folks who had heard him the first time were very excited when we announced he was returning, and they were not disappointed! Crowd size was great despite basketball games going on simultaneously at the school, which is attached to the church. Thank you and we look forward to working with John again in the future!”

John absolutely rocked our crowd of 1000 middle and high school students! Within seconds of taking the stage he had their attention and had them laughing. I’ve seen many able to hold that attention for a few quips but John’s attention to detail, his preparation, and his understanding of his audience had students and leaders alike laughing for the entire time. His professionalism left me with no doubts. His willingness to get to know our mission and vision for our event helped greatly in assuring our leaders that this comedy would be clean and tasteful… and funny. Without question, we look forward to having John back in the future.

He arrived in plenty of time to prepare and made himself at home. Employees really enjoyed his show – they like to laugh. It’s getting increasingly harder to find comedians/entertainers that are appropriate for our conservative setting and he was great. Thanks again for helping to make our Christmas party a success.”

Once again we were extremely happy with the entertainment provided by your service. Thank you for providing clean event humor.”

“John Felts was fantastic! His pre-event communication was excellent, gathering community and church information to personalize his performance. He was prompt, professional, co-operative and thorough in his preparation. He arrived an hour or more before the event for light and sound check, and gave a stellar performance that was enjoyed by all. I think he was the most well-prepared comedian we have hosted. I would recommend him to anyone.”

“John was a perfect fit for our company! From the time that we started to correspond via email and phone, to the very end he was extremely professional, friendly, detailed, and “all about us” in making our evening a success. I arranged to meet him in the ballroom prior to his performance to make sure that everything was to his liking and he was not only prompt, but early. I had provided him with specific details on some of the members of our audience and he was able to incorporate the information nicely into his routine and it was extremely well received. I had an excellent vantage point to watch the majority of the audience, including our Executive Director and our Board of Commissioners’ responses, and they were thoroughly enjoying their selves from start to finish. When I arrived at work this morning I had emails from our staff telling me how much fun they had and how funny John was. As you state in your book, it wasn’t the food that had them taking, it was John! I would highly recommend John many times over to any other company or organization who is looking for entertainment. A+++++”

Greenville, SC

We had a fantastic Homecoming and I have received nothing but rave reviews about John Felts. He did his homework to learn about Judson 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. 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. John was excellent and I would highly recommend him to any group

“The performance was great. We had 600 in attendance and John had them laughing from start to finish. John was top notch to work with. He contacted me weeks before the show date to get some “inside” information on our school. After he got that info, he called me to talk through some of the finer points of our traditions to make sure that the audience would “get the joke.” I could tell from his questions that he knew what he was doing and that reassured me and helped with promotion. John used the right amount of material to connect with the audience – based off of the information we spoke about – and transitioned well into his set. I was impressed with how seamlessly he moved from topic to topic all night. After the show, John met with people in the lobby and as I was observing from a distance, it was very clear that he cared to know each person he spoke with. He was courteous and professional. I would recommend John Felts to any other school or company looking for a night of laughter. I will certainly consider having him back on campus.”

Harding University

Family weekend

Searcy, AR

 

“For the last couple of years, we have had John as one of the main elements of entertainment for our incoming (freshmen) student orientation activities.  In my opinion, he is an incredible entertainer and comedian.  He was able to easily connect with our students and has weaved together shows that involved some of the nuances of being a college student at Cairn.  Given that college age students are sometimes a difficult group to engage, he not only interacted with them at times during his show, but also took time afterward to talk with anyone willing to meet with him.  The students always find him to be incredibly entertaining even to the point that during our 2015 fall orientation we had upperclassmen “crash” the event to get the opportunity to hear John’s comedy.  The typical comments we hear from the students after his show include words such as: fun, exciting, hilarious, awesome, etc.  Overall, his performance is always appreciated by both the students and staff that attend, and we can’t wait to have him back next year! “

“John Felts was awesome! He: was responsive, kept in communication with us several times before the gala, was on time for the dress rehearsal as requested, worked well with the emcee, made up great jokes ahead of time and on the fly based on what was happening at the time (shows me he was paying attention), had great energy during his performance, and was well dressed (dark suit at the black tie optional event). We had great feedback from gala attendees (thought he was funny). Jokes were appropriate, relevant and clean. It was a pleasure working with John on this gala and we thank him and you for your willingness to help with this element of entertainment.”

“John Felts was absolutely amazing! He exceeded our expectations when he had completed his performance. He involved the crowd which everyone loved. He also used a wide variety of material to ensure he targeted all of the audience. John also took time before the dinner had started to socialize with the crowd and that probably enabled him to include them in some of his show. He stayed afterwards and interacted with everyone and was very professional for the entire evening. Again, we thoroughly enjoyed having him for our guest at our event and look forward to working with him again.”

“We were honored to be entertained by comedian John Felts. He arrived several hours before the show to check in with our group to ensure everything was set up and to ask any questions he had to ensure a successful performance. He also allowed us time to ask him questions we might have. John asked our Association’s officers about our group to get a feel for what folks at our conference did in order to try to better enhance the audience’s enjoyment. John then arrived early for the show. He sat at one of the reception tables and interacted with those at the table which they very much enjoyed. Later, he was able to incorporate a sense of bonding into the show based on his interaction with the attendees at that table. John’s comedic delivery was unique, timely and absolutely hilarious. John’s comedy was also clean, fresh and moved along without dragging. The audience enjoyed him incorporating his life experiences into his jokes. John was sensitive to the audience. Most of his jokes and stories fit well with most any general audience and were very well received. Our attendees are very diverse, so this worked well. John himself was courteous, professional, engaging, funny, witty and did a great job of keeping the audience involved. I think what I enjoyed most was how very obvious it was that John loves his job and enjoys people. Our group all stayed for the entire performance and gave him a great ovation. A true credit to John connecting with those in attendance. Much thanks to both John Felts and Larry Weaver Entertainment. It was a pleasant experience and very easy going.”

“John Felts exceeded my expectations. He sat with a table of coaches and interacted with them before his show and did a great job of making it personal! He arrived over an hour in advance of his scheduled performance and did a thorough venue and sound check, and also cordially greeted and met with everyone involved in the event. He is a genuinely nice guy and was very kind and respectful with everyone he met. He was at his best when he was riffing off what he picked up on about them personally from comments they had made earlier, what they were wearing or how they reacted to a joke or comment he made on the stage. He made a real effort to learn our community and connect with it. Everyone present had a great time and all the feedback has been very positive. He made us look good. Funny, kind and professional, things we would all like to project! I give my personal endorsement of him and his show to anyone inquiring!” – Area Director,

“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!”

“John Felts was amazing, he called several times and communicated with us in a way that I am not use to. I absolutely loved everything about John. I know it is important to have critical feedback, but the truth is he over delivered in every area. We were blessed to have him. We have had several comedians over the past several years, and everyone felt that John was the best yet. I also felt that the Agency was very professional and easy to work with.”

Mike did great! I really liked that he hung out too. He didn’t just come in, perform, and leave. He sat at the table with some law enforcement families, afterwards he talked to lots of different people. He was very personable. He was so funny! We were all laughing hystericallyMy friend was sitting with him and just assumed he was an officer friend of someone’s at the table, so when he stood up to do his performance she was shocked. Everyone loved it and raved about it! Mike was super professional, very friendly, and crazy funny I, of course, wanted him to knock it out the park, since the whole thing was my suggestion, and I felt like he did just that. Thanks so much for everything!”

“It was our pleasure to host John Felts. Everyone at our event had a wonderful time. I have received feedback from so many people at our church. In many cases, people have emailed our staff directly and through our church website just to tell us about how much fun they had at our event. That is great to hear almost instant positive feedback from so many different people. We had about 170 in attendance and everyone had a blast. If you ever need a positive reference for John Felts or your agency, then please feel free to have anyone call me. Since this is only our second year to have this event, during the planning stages our staff had many different ideas about how we could improve from last year. However, we were all in unison with one part of the night – we knew we wanted John to come back! He did a great job, he used new material that was not a repeat of last year’s jokes, he kept it relevant and clean, and most importantly he connected with our audience immediately. I have had several couples tell me that they were on the fence when considering coming to our banquet, until they knew that John was coming back. Again, that says a lot about his performance! I have been on staff at this church for almost eleven years, and I can’t get enough of hearing the laughter from our folks! It truly came at a great time for many of our couples who just needed a night away from the kids and some great entertainment. Thank you for all you did to make our event a success, and please pass on to John Felts that we were blessed to have him back. Absolutely blessed. His great talent and gift for comedy led to much needed laughter and joy for so many people at our church. What a great night!”

“John Felts was a wonderful fit for our fundraising event. He was timely, professional, connected well with the audience and most importantly kept everyone laughing. I even saw a few folks laughing so hard they had tears in their eyes. Personally, I noticed that my cheeks were actually hurting from smiling and laughing so hard! This was our first comedy fundraising event, and I think the event planning committee easily agrees with me that we would love to have John back for another event in the future!” –

“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.”

“Our church tried it’s hand at a comedy show fundraiser. It was a first for us and John and your organization made it very easy for us to entertain our members and friends plus raise the money we expected. John arrived as promised one hour before the show. I introduced him around and he immediately made friends with other members of the church and added some of their ideas into his show. Our audience was of retirement age but John connected with us. His experiences and jokes were related to what our children and grandchildren are going through so we were able to find the humor in his situations. Everyone had a great time and all thoroughly enjoyed John’s performance.”

The jokes were funny and clean; and he was professional through and through. Definitely his niche. If you’re looking for a good, Christian comic, he is definitely the man for you. You won’t be disappointed. We look forward to having him come back.”

“Thank you so much for being a part of our event – couples had an amazing time and a huge part of that enjoyment came from laughter. I remember hearing you say that laughter is the sixth love language and you are absolutely correct and due to the stresses that our families experience it is a language they can’t forget about that – thanks for helping them remember about it. I heard nothing but great feedback about it from staff and residents – thank you for helping us create a fun and positive energy for our event. It was a pleasure working with you and look forward to being able to do so again for future events.”

“John exceeded our expectations in every way. He was prompt, professional, and truly connected with our students. In fact one student compared him to Jonathan Winters, high praise from my perspective. His material was spot on, that is general and specific to our campus. We look forward to having him back at some point.  All and all a great experience. You will be hearing from us again. Thanks!”

“We had such a great event with John.  We spoke prior to his arrival and the morning of our event.  He arrived early to take a look around which was quite welcome. He was very professional and personable.  His material was so relevant to our community and church.  He covered a variety of subjects which all brought laughter from a wide age range.  This was our churches first experience with a comedian.  I think one of our pastors was a bit hesitant but shortly after John’s performance he talked about having John back when our new multi-purpose facility is complete.  I certainly hope we can do that as well.  I cannot say enough good things about John. He stayed a while afterwards and visited with several people.  They really enjoyed him.  Thank you so much for suggesting John.  He was a hit.  A huge thanks to John Felts for everything.”

“John did an amazing job! Our audience loved having him here. His approach was perfect for our event, and he did a great job of making many of his jokes very specific to our event and even our area. This is my first experience hiring a comedian. To be honest, I had no idea what to expect. I was very nervous that this would end up being a train wreck. However, John’s performance made me look like a genius! He nailed it! People loved it! I would give John a glowing review any time you need it. You can even have people call me. Great guy, Great comedy, and Great night! Our people were literally forming a line to get to John after the show to tell him how much they enjoyed it! We had a audience in age ranges from young couples to senior adults. EVERYONE enjoyed John’s performance.”

“If you don’t already know the name John Felts, soon you will, it’s just a matter of time. There is no better stand up working today!  Whether you need comic relief at your conference, wedding or gala, look no further.

My fiancée and I wanted a comedian to liven up our wedding reception.  John’s performance etched memories that will linger forever. Our guests of young, old, black and white were left with ear to ear grins, smiles, and gut splitting laughter after John’s 2o minute performance.  We gave John tidbits on key members of the wedding party. He took those nuggets and developed a personalized stand up show that eclipsed our every expectation. Even more important John went under cover. He circulated the wedding party for over an hour collecting intel from guests and then wrapped what he gleaned into unexpected routines and lines directed at guests that simply floored people. His material was original and customized to our wedding and its guests.  This wasn’t cookie cutter comedy. It was customized comedic art.

We were introduced to John on his YouTube page, and then met with him for coffee. He was the highlight of the wedding. John has the intellectual energy to take ordinary occurrences and weave them into hilarious comedic riffs with taste, versatility and smooth execution.

I’ve studied with Gary Austin and other comedic greats at Improv workshops. I’ve seen and performed with some of the best. That’s why I say, there’s no better stand up working today.

A smiling married man,”

“John was excellent! I can’t rave about him enough. He was a huge success with the crowd and with my boss (which certainly made me look good too!). Everyone was laughing hysterically, and he did a great job of involving the crowd. He arrived early and got to know some of the guests which helped incorporate them in his jokes. He and your company will definitely come highly recommended in the future. Thanks for all your help. He truly was hilarious and talented!”

“I gotta tell ya, John was fantastic. I had seen a couple of the youtubes and liked him but, well, you know how that goes sometimes. I spoke with him several times prior to his gig with us and each time learned more about him and his work. It was a brilliant idea for him to ask for some little bits of data about our people, our town, our church and ministry, etc, prior to his arrival. He did an amazing job including these tidbits in his act. It was a great time, fun, light….we laughed a lot. I’m extremely pleased that it was so successful. Folks were still talking about John last night, and probably will continue for a while. We’ll have him back.”

“John Felts was Hilarious from start to finish! Our members and guests loved him! I have received tons of compliments on how great the evening was and how they haven’t laughed that hard in a long time. John covered a range of jokes that appealed to the young up to the old. We are still talking about John a week later and he has created memories for us that we can laugh about for years to come!”

“Still laughing from the Clean Comedy show Mike Santo’s performed for our Church group for our Valentine dinner gathering.  The laughs started right away and never stopped till Mike left.  We wanted to keep him forever.  How wonderful it is to have Clean comedy in our area.  As I looked around the room I saw people laughing so hard they had tears coming down.  How refreshing to have a fun, belly laugh evening and sharing Christan values too.  I booked Mike so I told him he better be funny, and he was.  Made me look GOOD!”

“Our church had John come in for a recent Church outreach event.  This was the first time that we had done an event such as this and, understandably, we were curious (and a little nervous) to see how it would go.  From start to finish we were absolutely delighted.  Booking was easy, and we knew what to do every step of the way.  John contacted us in advance for information about our community/setting and was able to personalize the show beautifully.  The night of the show everything went so smoothly – it almost felt too easy.  We were looking for someone who could really relate and connect with young 20/30 somethings and he did a great job.  John is extremely fun and personable and made a point to visit with our leadership team and guests both before and after the show.  I know I read website reviews and wondered if they were ‘for real’…this one is.  Our audience of church and community guests laughed the whole way through the show and people started asking me immediately when we could do this again and have John back.  This was a super fun – ‘do again’!  Thank you, John!”

John was great! He had our employees in stitches, and they very much enjoyed his clean comedy act!! We will absolutely recommend him to others.

“John Felts was a perfect fit for the comedy act at Ave Maria University’s New Student Orientation. Of course he was hilarious, which is always a plus when you are hiring a comedian! However, even more impressive was his ability to play on how unique Ave Maria University is, and his ability to relate to the students who come to a place like Ave Maria (a private, passionately Catholic University.) He definitely spent a lot of time researching our school, which indicates that he really loves what he does…and it shows. We also appreciated how he took the time after the show to talk to the students and spend some time with them. I definitely recommend John Felts for any Orientation event, but especially for any faith-based institution.”

For any of my friends who might be looking for an entertainer for any sort of get together. John Felts spoke at our Volunteer Appreciation Dinner on Friday night and he was amazing. I HIGHLY recommend him. He was funny, and relevant and sweet. Good clean humor that any age group will enjoy!!

“John did a FANTASTIC job for us.  From the moment I picked him up from the airport, he was professional, funny, considerate and great to work with.  He as flexible and motivated to help us make our event a success.  Once he took the stage, he was HILARIOUS.  He took local St. Louis things and turned them into excellent material.  He was a real pro and had the audience eating out of his hand.  He pushed the envelope just a little, but did not cross any lines.  He was relaxed and everyone was buzzing about it and still is buzzing about it.  The owner of the club we had the even at took notice.  He has been around comedy for years, and actively books pros to come into his club.  He thought John was very good and commented several times on that.  I would be happy to provide you with a quote or whatever you want, in order to help John out in the future.  And, If people want to cal me for a personal account of how he did, I would welcome that call”

“Mike Santo’s comedy really added to the fundraiser the New Song Church MOPS group recently held. Mike’s act was filled with good, clean humor, that had an edge to it, but did not cross the line of impropriety. Mike was great to work with, his demeanor was professional throughout the event. Mike engaged well with the crowd before, during, and after his performance. I really appreciated the time he took to spend with audience members both before and after his performance.”

“It was a great comedy night at the RIVERSIDE THEATERS’  Clean as a Whistle Show in Rockford TN the night John Felts performed.  Funny from start to finish, he kept us laughing the whole show.  He made a lot of new friends that night and everyone knew they were watching a GREAT COMEDIAN that will be around a long time.  Riverside Theater got so many calls to “have him back!”  SO GET BACK TO ROCKFORD TN SOON JOHN

“We have had John twice now for our church.  First time for an evening of fun with our officers and spouses and second for a night at a couples retreat.  On both occasions John had us in stitches!  His stories are hysterical and his timing excellent.  He tells great jokes but more than that he makes the everyday routines of life something to laugh about.  Great comedy, great guy, you will love him!”

“We hired John for our church, Springs Fellowship’s marriage conference, in Dallas, Texas. He was as sweet, as he was funny. Our couples ages ranged from early 20’s, to couples in their 70’s, and he made all of them laugh. My husband is still laughing about one joke that John told. I am so glad that we hired John for our event.”

“Just a line to thank you for hooking our church up with John Felts. As you probably remember, John came to our church, Richland Baptist Church, in Lynnville, Tennessee and provided entertainment for our valentine’s Day Banquet. He did a great job and everyone appreciated his insight and humor….especially the younger couples. Thank you so much for helping us with this project.”
