Steve received the following letter from client Carl Ruf, Environmental Programs Manager at the NASA Wallops Space Facility in Wallops Island, VA:
“On behalf of the NASA Wallops Flight Facility, I'd like to thank you for your “Phone Call from the President” at our awards event. Your impression of the Commander-in-chief (and his “firings” of two of our teams) was absolutely hilarious, well-received and professionally done. Thanks for your guidance, suggestions and patience in putting the successful gag together. I look forward to more opportunities to work with you, when we may need your humor to add a unique twist to future presentations.”
Event planners love to tell Steve how his unique & very funny corporate comedy concepts have made them look good when they've worked with Steve to inject some levity into otherwise lackluster business functions & events. Some of the ways Steve has done so include:
Serving as Host/Emcee * Comedy by PowerPoint * Phony Expert * "Roasting" an honoree (In person, on tape, & even live over the phone)!
