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

Adam performed at my husband's 40 th Birthday last night. From the first time we emailed, he was so professional. He was so funny. Our friends and family had a blast. If u have the opportunity to hire him, do so. U won't be disappointed. He was great.

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.

Johnny Lampert provided my client with a fantastic 45 minutes! He crafted his act specifically to the group of people he was performing for, and had them laughing the whole time. Prior to the performance date, Johnny and his team were consistently in touch while the final touches of our event were coming together. Johnny Lampert was an absolute pleasure to work with, and I would certainly hire him again! Thanks, Johnny!!!

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.

Our fundraiser was flawless… and all because of ROBIN FOX. Every person in the crowd (over 180 people) young and old, male and female, of every ethnicity ROARED with laughter as Robin Fox confidently delivered an amazing 90 minutes of comedy. We are so grateful to Robin for being genuinely funny and powerful, but for being so accommodating and reliable. Even with snow she made it to CT from NJ on a Thursday. We could not have asked for a more professional, more delightful, more hysterical comedian. We will undoubtedly use Robin again, and again. Thank you Robin from the bottom of our hearts.

Robin was terrific!! Everywhere I go, people still comment on how much they enjoyed her skit. She was so easy to work with, always returning calls, making great suggestions and taking the time to understand our audience. She would be on the top of my list should I need another comedian. In the short time we worked together I feel she has become a friend!!

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!!

Turner is a performer I've see during my time performing in and organising comedy in China across several stages. Whether it has been in Hong Kong, Beijing or his previous home of Shanghai I've never seen him fall flat and he has consistently delivered. He performed at our gig which sold out with a solid set that appealed to all the audience members (quite a feat considering our english speakers at Beijing gigs come from all over). Definitely recommend strongly

Turner is amazing. As the owner of The Drunken Clam in Suzhou, China I had the pleasure of watching him start the first open mic night in mainland China. Hilarious. A total legend. He was great for my bar's business and I watched him grow beyond my bar and basically start stand up comedy in China. Four thumbs up!

I couldn't be more happy to write a review for someone like Harry Freedman. First, he is a true professional in every way. He is completely detailed with everything he does. From explanation to what I should expect, to researching his subject matter to leave no room for inaccuracies or possibilities of mistakes that would undermine the performance that is asked of him. That said, he is also one of the funniest people I have ever had the pleasure of listening too. I'm still laughing at some of the things I heard him say. Not just your average run of the mill laughs but howls and tear producing belly laughs. This man is genius at what he does. Would I hire Harry for anything else or recommend him to a friend or associate? In a heartbeat. Because he would make me look that good for doing so. There's nothing average about Harry Freedman. This is the real deal and I am extremely happy to say so.

Thank you Harry for making me look like a genius for contacting you for our annual holiday party. Harry coordinated an entire show and performed with comedians Chris Roach and Davin Rosenbatt, as MC. This was the most amazing night of laughter and fun many of us have ever had at any event. You exceeded all expectations. All I can say is Talent! Talent! Talent!

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!

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!

There are a ton of great things I can say about Shawn, and his abilities as a comedy/improv coach. I think the biggest compliment I can say is that he has a true passion for what he does, and it shows every time I work with him. His passion makes him such a pleasure to work with and be coached by. No matter your skill level, he treats you as an equal, and just wants you to get better (while having fun). I highly recommend him if you are looking to become a better improviser, comedian, or salesperson. I know he helped me with all three.

Shawn coaches my comedy improv team. He is brilliantly smart, thoughtful and intuitive. He reads our team and creates improv exercises that stretch us in ways we benefit from. He solves our problems as a team and helps us to be better. Very capable person. Comedically he has a unique ability to link the banal, the common, and the typical to the bizarre, the uncommon and the atypical in a surprisingly understated way. He's really funny, considerate and generous.

Shawn is a fantastic improv and comedy instructor. He's patient, friendly and inspiring. Most importantly, he's always open to trying new methods/angles and discover them together with his students: the ultimate improv attitude! I've known him for over for years now and he took my improv to the next level!

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.

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

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.
