When you want to hire a comedian what I suggest to you to do is to look them up on youtube. I did my research and I chose Brian to perform on my wedding reception. He did a really good job, I hired him to roast me and my wife. I was literally laughing my a**es off the whole time and everybody else was just as satisfied. He talked to our friends and prepared for the night in a very short amount of time(about one week, so it's never too late to call him). He was really flexible, we started with delays and had to delay his start as well but it didn't seem a problem. What I like about his style is that he never repeats himself. It was an awesome performance!
