Jon and Wes were great. We had a birthday surprise party for two people (my husband and his mother in law turned 60). Jon and Wes were funny despite the tough crowd, interacted with everyone, and made us laugh for 1 hour. They were on time, plus their fees were very reasonable compared to other places/comedians. I would recommend them to anyone.

J and J Comedy Productions were awesome. Jon Yeager and Wes Martens were very friendly, and made the audience cry with laughter. I hope they had a good time at my 50th birthday party as well. I would definitely recommend them and hire them again. Thanks Deb Graham

Jon worked with me to book the very funny David Tveite for the main act, and then Jon was the opener. Both put on a great show. Many of my party guests came up to me later to tell me how much they liked the comedians.

We hired Mike (Zig Zag) for my son 1st B'Day. Firstly he is very nice guy and very professional. All kids and including adults enjoyed Wacky Magic w/Puppet Skit and Live Bunny and Balloon Sculpting. Mike was exceptional when working with kids, he has lot of patience. In fact we hired him for two hours, but he stayed more than two hours... He is Awesome. I'll definitely hire him again n again. Thanks so much Mike for you entertainment.

Michael is a member of Kapitol Klowns Assn of Maryland, which is an organization comprised of entertainers for the Meca of D.C, Virginia and Maryland. Michael is an excellent balloon artist, face painter and magician. The children are especially crazy about Michael (ZigZag's) balloons! What a wonderful entertainer!

It's Shaun Eli's job to make you forget how much you hate your job! Shaun is a clean comedian, not just some comedian offering to clean it up for you- so you get clean comedy, not cleaned-up comedy. That's why not only corporations but also synagogues and senior citizens groups, even the U.S. Army War College, love Shaun Eli's clever, smart comedy. In a Fortune magazine interview "Tonight Show" host Jay Leno quoted one of Shaun's jokes, citing it as an example of the type of "smart comedy" he's happy to include in his opening monologue. Jay and other late-night hosts have incorporated Shaun's topical material in their monologues for almost two decades. Tons of testimonials on my website (that they won't let me link to in this section) Whether it's a story about dining with a vegetarian or successfully fighting a parking ticket, from hybrid cars to serving on a NYC criminal jury, master storyteller Shaun Eli shows you that there's hilarity in the ordinary if you approach life with a comedic warp. Contractors? European vacations? How about the Ten Commandments? For just about anything, he's experienced. Shaun has a hilarious story at the ready. He's been profiled on CBS News, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Christian Science Monitor, the Asbury Park Press, the Journal News, Westchester Magazine, on and was a regular on the Joey Reynolds Radio Show (syndicated to over 100 markets). Shaun regularly performs for corporate audiences, at charity fund-raising events, for the U.S Army War college, at numerous comedy clubs. He has regularly hosted shows for patients and their families at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and for many other anti-cancer charities. Shaun is a graduate of the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania who escaped to comedy after twenty years of working in marketing and finance, so if it's a corporate comedian you're seeking, why not hire someone who understands your business, your audience and your needs?

My wife and I saw comedy magician Anthony Ware perform at Club Bambou in Baltimore. He was on the line-up with several comedians. His show was terrific, and funny. The magic was incredible! He totally engaged the audience through-out his performance. At one point he had two people from the audience on stage with him. It was hilarious! It was truly a pleasure to see a artist who's able to do a clean performance that is simply outstanding.Kudos to Mr.Ware.It was money well spent.

We hired Magician Anthony Ware for our teenage daughters’ birthday party. Anthony did a terrific job keeping the attention of an audience full of teenagers. He was funny, and his magic was incredible! My daughter said she had so much fun when Anthony picked her to assist in the show. We found Anthony to be a highly professional entertainer and we definitely recommend him. D Sampson

Anthony was an awesome entertainer! He was great to work with from start to finish, very professional and he delivered a really engaging show that had our guests laughing and buzzing for hours after, trying to figure out how he did the magic. I would definitely hire him again.

I heard Marino last night at a Birthday Party for a 96 year old Italian woman and he was Brilliant, singing in Italian and entertaining everyone in the room. I have also hired him to entertain at events hosted by my radio station for a wide variety of ages and he was spectacular. I highly recomend Marino as an entertainer who will compliment any event your planning. Dan Steele WHP Radio

I hired Vince Barnett the comedian for a small private birthday party for a dear friend. Although I was hesitant at first I'm so glad I went forward with hiring him, he was professional, but very friendly and personable...I felt like I knew him. Even better he was actually hilarious! The guests loved him and he closed the show with the birthday boy in tears, from laughter! Vince added a few personal touches into his skit which made it really special…

I am "slightly overweight, moderately bald, and totally funny". I provide an opportunity to view things from the innermost workings of my mind. Most people think that I am very funny. My wife thinks that I am just annoying. Life is too serious; we need to laugh.

I dress as Alice Roosevelt Longworth (Teddy's eldest daughter) and talk about scandals in the city. I guarantee laughs as I share stories about presidents, congressmen and even about Alice, herself. "If there's gossip to be told about me, I'm going to tell it first! If you don't have anything nice to say, come sit by me", is her motto.
