Linda Axelrod does a better Joan Rivers than Joan Rivers. Whenever I can be there, I will always make the extra effort to see her perform. She is amazing!!
Michael Tadross Exec. Producer Warner Bros. Pictures
Linda is a FABULOUS Joan Rivers. She filmed several skits for our company and not only wasLinda comfortable with the scripts but added some hilarious ad-libs. Some of our viewers thought we got the real Joan Rivers. Genuine entertainer. Linda is the best Joan EVER.
I would definitely work with Linda again!
Beth McGillen Writer/Director/Producer GEICO Insurance
Linda Axelrod as Joan Rivers was the highlight of our conferenc's comedy night. Over 2000 of my people were rolling in the aisles non-stop for 50 minutes. She looked exactly like Joan, sounded exactly like Joan and her mannerisms, timing and phrasing of the jokes was flawless. The material was also extremely current and we were pleasantly surprised by the tailoring of numerous segments of the routine to our group and the kind of work they do. Linda obviously did her homework on my group of health care professionals which included physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists and sleep technologists. Those tailored jokes were also excellent and when her show ended 2000+ people were on their feet, asking for more.
