Exceptional performance! Unique! Outstanding! Professional, Mesmerizing, Great personality. I will not consider any other Magician for any of our future events. I am so impressed with the deliverance of his performance. This was my first time hiring an entertainer and having to consider what would please a party of 70-Seniors no less, not the easiest to please. Lou out did himself and made me look good too. Lou kept in touch frequently leading up to the actual date of the event and arrived as scheduled. Don't waste your time looking through any other profiles, this is your man. Lou Serrano, thank you for everything. I give you a 10+

Jeremy was phenomenal! He was the best part of wedding other than us of course. He arrived early, stayed late, read the crowd and kept the dance floor packed all night. I've been to more than a few weddings and this was by far the most people I've seen dancing. Jeremy was helpful to not just my bride and I, but also to the officiant, the wedding party, and our coordinator. We had a special musical accompaniment featuring a violin paired with a piano and Jeremy was very flexible with the changes and did everything possible to make things perfect. Throughout the evening he went above and beyond anything one could or should ever expect from a DJ/MC. He really helped make this a special occasion and brought everyone together all while remaining covert in the background throughout the event. He collaborated with us throughout the process and was involved and proactive, but without being overbearing or pushy. In a word, he was perfect. Hire DJ Hersch and you can rest assured knowing the musical/MC portion of the event is locked down and taken care of. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again and would insist that you hire him for your event needs.

I've had the amazing opportunity of working with Erik on many occasions. He is a talented comedian who can adapt to several different audiences. Some of the best shows I've ever promoted/attended have included him (whether featuring or headlining). Not only is he a pleasure to watch, but he is wonderful to work with. Professional. Punctual. Kind. Sincere. Hilarious. I can't recommend him enough.

Thanks to James we've been booking Raise The Woof since 2011. We're an animal rescue society (Cause For Critters) and this has become our major fund raiser. James was our inaugural host in 2011 & was the host & closer in March, 2015. We've never been disappointed with the stand-up talent. We asked for adult comedy without the "EFF" bombs and they have consistently delivered on their promise. Most people commented that their abs haven't had a work out like that since their first lay! Always professional and affordable!

Luis's brand of humor takes audiences just on the edge of mania. He somehow manages to weave the personal with the political, in a unifying way rather than divisive. He drops the bombs of plain old truth shared through his angst filled stage persona. He seems so comfortable with the discomfort of his own conflicting emotions, that you have to laugh with relief, because he makes your neurosis feel natural. Then he adds his hilarious physicality to fuel the funny fire. Like Justin Timberlake, Luis has that rare ability to be sexy, funny and poignant. I've been a fan of his from the beginning.

Our company loves magic. I was getting tired of hiring magicians who perform the same tricks over and over, and Joseph Tran was a refreshing change! He was very easy to work with and very accommodating (even when our show was delayed), and his performance was the highlight of the entire evening! Our employees all excitedly got involved, and the energy in the room was tremendous! I would definitely hire him again!

It's the funniest act I've seen in a long time! It was great on both a visual and intelectual level...and it was a clean show until that plunger came out! Seriously, it's good to see a comedian keep it wholesome, yet fun. Great act.

I've hired Tony as a headliner for a stand up comedy show, and on a separate occasion as an auctioneer for a fundraiser. Every time I know I'm getting someone who understands how to keep people entertained. He's got showmanship, and he's always very funny. He was very professional, arriving early on both occasions. And the feedback I got from people at my events was very positive. They wanted to meet him afterwards. I will be hiring him again for sure.

Professional comedian Colin Dillon is known for a unique, one-of-a-kind act with an X factor that has yet to be understood or even named within the "Best of the Best" nationally recognized comedians. It's this act that has Colin doing comedy all over the nation and people dragging their friends and family to comedy clubs! Colin Dillon is hilarious and is now being described as the definition of an "Up n Comin Rising Star". He is creating a buzz everywhere he goes with his humble attitude off the stage and in business to on-stage giving any group of people a night of pure joy that will not be forgotten. Take advantage of an opportunity to wow your customers by attaching Colin Dillon's live comedy show to your business. You can do this by booking him for any type of special event, holiday party, a wine tasting party all accompanied with a high-end comedy show. This positive and different business move is just what business owners need, to keep the strength and energy in our name alive!
