From start to finish Vic was amazing. He functions like a professional on the business side and then delivered a customer experience with his comedy that was tailored perfectly to our audience. He made the process so easy and he listened to everything we said. He even went above and beyond and got an opening act who was a fantastic addition and excellent surprise. This was the first time we used Vic. It will not be the last. The key to knowing the performance was good was that over 75% of our guests asked for his info!

We threw together a holiday company party at the last minute and Vik was able to work with us. He was very responsive and was able to work a comedy idea I had into his. Everyone at the party said Vik was the best part. I would highly recommend Vik Pandya for any comedy event.

Vik was amazing! I invited him to perform comedy for an all adult birthday party. His set was perfectly matched to my group’s diverse sense of humor! I was pleased that Vik was willing to accommodate our post dinner (10:00 pm) start time in a distant suburb of Chicago. I highly recommend Vik if you’re looking for someone who’s responsive, reliable, and ready to bring out the laughs!!
