After having done a search on-line for 'comedians for hire' for my husband's surprise 40th bday I discovered Thumbtack and am So grateful! Within an hour I received a quote from a couple comedians, one of them being Steve. He was much more affordable and his Intro email to me was personalized and very professional. After reviewing his website I was quite impressed and turns out a friend of mine had seen him previously as well and said he was hysterical. The next morning I responded to Steve's email and he called back immediately. The evening of the event he arrived early and set up his speaker and microphone and he grabbed everyone's attention right away!! His impersonations were spot on and he kept everyone in stitches the entire time, being to sure to involve many of my guests as targets to the butt of his jokes! A great time was had by all and even the next day people were calling saying what a great party and wonderful idea to have a comedian. I'd recommend Steve to anyone for any type of event , he was 5 Star in my book!! Thanks so much Steve for making my husband's party so memorable!! Kindest regards. Jaime , Tuckahoe, NY

"Domino does a FANTASTIC job! He is great with, and entertains the children as well as adults. We enjoyed his great show so much we hired him for our son's 5th birthday back in 2010 and again this year for my daughter's 6th! You will not be disappointed when you hire Domino the Great!"

    I have had the opportunity to attend a number of Bucky’s shows starting back in the early 1990s. Bucky combines his outstanding musical talent with Hilarious standup comedy, he creates characters that we all can identify with and includes members of the audience in much of his show. Without any doubt Bucky Lewis is a very funny comedian and talented performer. One of New Hampshire’s best home grown talents.

      Frank was a class act! He was very professional in the planning stages of the event and very funny the night of the gig. The other comedians that he worked with were so good as well! Everyone got it and was laughing so hard — we look forwad to having them back!

      Chris was able to attend my son's birthday party on short notice. He crafted various balloons for all the attendees during a short time period. The kids' loved the balloon designs and his sense of humor. He kept the kids' engaged and guessing for what the next design would be each time. He definitely went above and beyond what I expected! I highly recommend him!

      About

      Dee is an actress/ stand-up comedienne. What a combination, she started doing stand-up comedy in 2001. After being bitten by the acting bug, she had never been on stage before but had a really good time and discovered that she would not burst into flames if she got on a stage in front of actual people. Comedy is the last thing that Dee ever thought she would be doing; it was that thing she would always wanted to try but did not have the guts to try. Dee has performed with local community theaters, including Schenectady Light Opera Company, Home Made Theater, Albany Civic Theater, Schenectady Civic Theater and Our Own Productions. Dee Watson has also had the privilege of directing a little known play entitled, "Periphery", by playwright Ed Simpson for Our Own Productions. Dee has performed stand-up comedy at many local venues, including The Comedy Works and Proctor's Theater. Dee has been featured on News Channel 13 in a "Today's Woman Segment" with Elaine Houston. She has also had the pleasure of being invited to perform at The Chicago Women's Funny Festival.

      I've booked Aaron Ward a number of times and he's an outstanding professional in every sense of those words. Not only is he a very funny comedian, but a real pro who covers all the bases to be sure the comedy shows he delivers at my events are the best they can be. Highly recommended!
