Adam was incredible to work with and so funny! He was quick to respond to all my emails and questions. Adam's professionalism carried through from start to finish. He got two additional comedians for our show through his LoHud Comedy group and they were hysterical. I conveyed to Adam the level of edginess I was looking for in the show, as we are a non-profit and they were all perfect. Weeks later, people are still talking about what a great show it was. I would highly recommend Adam and LoHud Comedy and plan to use them again in the future. Cathy Kleros, Co-President Southbury Women's Club

Robin Fox is amazing. I saw her perform on TV and looked her up to perform for our company. She was amazing! She had a diverse group of people from all over the USA young and old, male and female in hysterics. It's a day later and my sides still hurt from laughing so hard. We have hired other comedians before, but Robin was in a class of her own. Bravo!!

I don't usually do Reviews, because I find most services are not that good or that bad to warrant the commentary. BUT I have no reservations about this one. Yesterday I had a work event at which Johhny performed for a very diverse group of 98 people. He was AMAZING. He was so funny that half of the group was actually crying. I had more than a few people tell me that comedians are not usually "their thing" - but they LOVED him. I am still getting phone calls this morning from coworkers wanting to express how much they enjoyed the performance and asking where we found him. His material was totally appropriate, appealed to a wide variety of personalities and I would HIGHLY recommend him for any gathering.

    It was a pleasure having John perform at our venue for a second time. He is a funny comedian whose craft has been honed since his first performance here several years ago. His set appeals to cross generation and cross ethnic lines. We look forward to his next performance here

    1st time We Hired him as a comedian was for our Church Gala. He was amazing, hillarious and such a crowd motivator. The second time was for my housewarming. I wanted light entertainment while our guest mingled at our home. He kept everyone in tears, and was a big hit. I recommend Chick the Comedian for any and every occasion. If your having a small dinner party, large wedding, or anything in between; he's your guy! Great, clean, jokes!

    Review JPZ There's many good things I could say about John, but it would be all the same. I also work in the entertainment business and he hit the spot sharp! HE IS GREAT! HE IS THE REAL DEAL! In my many years(15+) of being around fancy parties there's 2 Guys that impressed me. He is ONE! (the other guy even though is good, his lady manager is a hassle to deal with ) John has a great vibe and gives his 100%, which is commendable and I appreciated it more than anything. Very sharp mind and the improv jokes had us laughing with tears. I didn't want to leave a review for fear of making him too busy thus decreasing my chances of booking him again in the future, but it wouldn't be fair to him. Pay him whatever he's asking, you'll get more than what you paid for! He's priceless. Thanks and good Luck, John (aka RP)

      Tom is by far the most professional comedian out there. It is rare to find such creative genius, a comedian second to none and a gentleman all in one package.

      Eagle was professional, dependable, and funny as hell! Him and his crew stole the show. They had my guests rolling! Everyone asked me where I found them and wanted to hire them for their next event. Also, Eagle was responsive and his communication was on point. He showed up early and I would definitely hire him again. Thank you for a great time!

      The comedians were very good. Kept the crowd laughing during the whole show. Looking forward to booking Comedy Works again. Great fundraiser!


      I am a New York based stand-up comic great for private parties, temple events, and corporate events. I can be saucy or sanitized. Just let me know!


      I do Catskill-like stand-up comedy (Buddy Hackett, Mal Z Lawrence, etc.), and play Clapton-like guitar. I have done shows in New York City.


      I can provide quality comedy and entertainment for your event. I do clubs, dinners, fundraisers, roasts, and private groups; you name it!

      If you're looking to add hysterical standup comedy to your event, you've come to the right guy. I host the popular bi-monthly Crown Heights comedy showcase, It's Sooo Up and Coming: Comedy at 739 Franklin and the hit monthly comedy show N.W.A. (Negroes with Asthma) and I'm ready to put on a show at your event. In addition to bringing my own unique comedy sensibility to your event, I'll bring along two of my hilarious comedian friends, who've been featured on late night television, at no extra cost. My service also includes a professional equipment package (mic, mic stand, PA system and spotlights), which will give the performance a comedy show feel. My pricing is reasonable and I can create custom packages to accommodate your budget.


      I do stand-up comedy. I try to show the world how stupid we are to make people think about how we interact with each other.

      Josh Carter, a former engineering student/overly-sheltered only child, is always full of optimism. Josh developed his comedy chops on a UCB scholarship and has been featured in TimeOut, Collegehumor, and SiriusXM. This is not bad for a 25-year-old Brooklyn kid; unless you ask his mother who wishes he was using his degree.
