REVIEWS

Awesome fun at our Masquerade Gala

Dave was awesome and so entertaining for the adults and children in attendance of our Frozen Masquerade Gala. So appreciative that he "toned down" his set for the little ears in the audience. We loved his jokes and his take on life with kiddos. So funny! His stories from his own experiences are great and I would recommend him for any of your events, adult only or with kids.

Totally Awesome!

Dave was the MC for our event. He really did his homework on the retiree and his family, using the information in his show.

He was extremely funny and we would definitely use him again!

What a great night!

We are a charitable cycling organization. Dave did a great job as our emcee. He told jokes that catered to our biking community and helped us raise a lot of money for the different local charities we support

Dave Bressoud’s Response:

Yes, I did not have a good night. But I can't take all the credit, I had help. This was a horrible situation to be put in. The event was in a huge exhibit hall and went as follows: cocktail hour, dinner, dessert, award ceremony and raffle. It was 9:10 when they finally brought me up and I was to do 45 minutes. People were tired and wanted to leave. Before I went on, I was asked me to change my routine because they were worried about complaints since she didn't inform the guests prior of a comedian performing. Bottom line, if you're having an event, tell people there is going to be a comedian and have them perform before the awards when people are still interested.

Dave was a hit at our School of Nursing retreat. He provided just the right mix of funny and inspirational thoughts. He got our retreat off to a wonderful start and set a great tone for the day. Would certainly hire him again!
