A review off Gigmasters
US Navy Salutes an Air Force Veteran
We hired Brian to provide the entertainment at our recent reunion banquet. 137 former sailors and their ladies of the USS Wainwright Veterans Association enjoyed his jokes, stories and the way he engaged the crowd. Brian arrived at the beginning of the evening and joined us for dinner before his time on stage. He listened to all that was going on and was able to tailor his act to fit our particular group, with some good-natured ribbing of the more prominent members of the association. What he and Gigsalad charged was more than reasonable. If your group is looking for something other than the same old, same old, check him out. There are plenty of videos of his act on line as well as his own "BTS on the Road" productions.
A review from Uwharrie Vineyards
Uwharrie Vineyards & Winery
One of the Absolute Best Comedians By Far. We've hosted him twice here at the winery, the last two years, and it's been standing room applause after both performances. We've already booked him a year in advance for next year. Brian brings so many different styles and techniques to the stage, and you could never ask for a better performance by anyone. I'm the GM and Winemaker here, and I highly recommend Brain for all of your future events.
