Below are some of the reviews our entertainers have received.
"Mario gave a wonderful performance at Suny Oneonta. He was extremely well received and a pleasure to work with. We will not hesitate to recommend his show to other colleges and universities because he is very professional and has all the attributes and characteristics necessary to be desirable on a college campus."
– Oneonta, NY
"Fine performances featuring... unadorned music that speaks volumes about the reality of living in the rural Midwest"
– Arts Alive!
– Bob Fisher, the Ice House

"Thank you! We are very much looking forward to "Mark Twain."
– Elk Grove Village, IL
"Troy has been here so many times he is part of our family! We love him. The very best way to know if the performer is good is to watch the traffic up and down the aisles. Troy's audience sits all through the show. Can't wait till next year!"
– West, Frankfort, IL
"Hi--I'm a fourth grader at Roosevelt School in Park Ridge, Illinois. I just saw your show today, and told my mom, dad and sister both stories. My favorite part was when the puppet, Shari Cary, came out. She was sooo funny. I loved your performance and want to see it again!"
– Park Ridge, Illinois
"You have the wonderful gift of being able to hold them in the palm of your hands during the performance, and part of that is a credit to your outstanding personality and the repoire you have with students. We look forward to having you again."
– Park Ridge, Illinois
"Dr. William Mitchell arrived on time. He brought with him everything he needed for the performance. He only asked for 20 chairs to be placed on the stage. He hypnotized the majority of the 20 students. He worked wonderfully with the students! He had the entire crowd laughing throughout the performance! The students and I enjoyed the performance!! He was an amazing performer! "
– Mt Zion, IL
"Patrons are already asking to have Nitro Joe back! Top Notch every time! "
– Quincy, IL
"Hey Brett... I am a part of the student body you spoke to today at Three Rivers High School. I am a marketing/DECA student, but didn't get to take part in shaking your hand or talking with you, since I entered the program a little late; I knew what was going on, but didn't know about the "backstage" pass. I wanted to tell you how much we all appreciated you coming in today, and that most of us did in fact get something useful out of the program. Have a good holiday! =) "
– Shelby F.
"Lynn is the guy to go to for a Bob Hope tribute. We've hired/worked with Lynn four times. He does much more than look, act, or gesture like Bob Hope. Lynn can sing, play instruments, he has comedic timing, and he's a real musician, so he understands the nuances of the entertainment business. Most of all, he gets the laughs.
And don't forget, he does loads of other impersonations too.
– Hickory Hills, IL
"I am thoroughly convinced that Brett Eastburn will go above and beyond all expectations you may have regarding presentations on courage, self-esteem, and the will to succeed. "
– Cassopolis, MI
"Stephanie was magical on stage, and I knew immediately that I wanted her for our productions…..an incredible asset to our shows. Had it been possible I would have cast her in every musical or dramatic play I produced."
– Former TYA director: Margaret Bachus
"Monsters in the Bathroomâ€ť was a great program! There are not many people (especially not storytellers) who can keep a room full of kids entertained for over 40 minutesâ€”you had them mesmerized and laughing for a full hour! Best wishes for the rest of your summer, and for the continuation of your stellar career!"
– Fairfax, California
"As a teacher, I realize the importance of so many educational practices that you use in what seems like such an easy way: hands-on experiences, active learning, meaningful activities, integrated subjects, use of multiple intelligences, and so on and so on. Your programs allow me to offer the third graders at Meadow Lane the opportunity to "go back" in history and experience it. While doing so, they learn lessons that are multicultural as well as an integration of history, sociology, science, conservation, language, music, physical education, and mathematics. It's an experience that delights young and old as it educates."
– Lee's Summit, MO
"The National Frontier Trails Museum had the pleasure of hosting Stephanie Goodman and her one-woman play, Beatrix Potter, Her Life and Legacy. The play and her performance were exceptional in several ways….Her portrayal was sincere…hallmark of a gifted artist! "
– Richard Edwards, Education, Events Coordinator: Frontier Trails Museum
"Last week we had the distinct pleasure of having Sandi Sylver present a scary storytelling program for our young adult coffeehouse (middle and high school students). They loved it! Sandi promised to scare their socks off and I am sure that a few of them went home barefoot that night! Librarians know it is no small feat to entertain young people this age."
– Plainfield, Illinois
"Amazing show tonight! Rocking along to great Eagles' songs made for a very enjoyable evening."
