Janet Steele,Albany Oregon Chamber of Commerce
"You set a wonderful stage for a fantastic evening with your sense of humor, knowledge of the audience, our community and of course your great jokes! Our members and guests were still talking about the fun they had and the entertainer (you!) the next week."

"Your jabs targeted all areas of the political arena while remaining fit text for a mixed audience. Your delivery succeeded in offending no one."
Don Barnhart, ADS Corporation

Senator Edward Kennedy
"Many, many thanks for providing the entertainment at the Boehner-Kennedy Charity Dinner. Vicki and I thought you were incredibly funny and a great addition to the event."

"Broadcasters see a lot of talent, and they are a tough audience to play to. You certainly did a great job as evidenced by the standing ovation they gave you"
Tammy Nevill, Illinois Funeral Directors Association
"Your personal touch is especially appreciated as it made people feel like you were a part of our group, and not a paid entertainer."

Gene A. Donaghy, Indiana Michigan Power
"I haven't laughed for 45 straight minutes as much as I did during your presentation. It's hard to believe how, just spending 15 minutes with our committee, you could roast those people."
Ben Fuller, Oklahoma Ready Mixed Concrete Association
"This is the second time we have had you present a program at one of our conventions, and it won't be the last."
Robert Moorhead, Associated Builders and Contractors
"For a large national association whose members are diverse, it's tough to keep EVERYONE entertained. Nevertheless, you succeeded."
Kelly Thomas, North Fulton Chamber of Commerce
"If I only had you around on a daily basis, I could have abs of steel. I don't recall laughing continuously for 45 minutes .... ever!"
Glenn Hemphill, Munich American Reassurance
"Jim has the uncanny ability of making people laugh that can't be described in words. Fortunately, I am a member of that honored club."
Bruce A. Shepherd, Price Waterhouse Coopers
