This is the third time our 55+ RV Resort has had the honor of watching Marty Berk perform. He has always delivered a show which had the audience roaring in laughter. This high energy entertainer is sure to please any crowd. We are anxious to have him return again next year!

Review by Shelly D.

Marty perform at our parents 50th Anniversary. Marty's manager, Lonnie, was awesome to work with and get everything planned and worked out prior to the event. We had listened to a few of Marty's routines to get an idea of how his show might present. They don't come close to the actual fun our guest experienced. Really wasn't sure of how the show would be for the party but from the minute he started to when his show was over we never saw anyone not laughing. People loved to participate with Marty's songs. Many responded at the end of the party how terrific the "entertainment" was. It was a fabulous show that gave great humor and entertainment. It was a better than we anticipated. Thanks Marty & Lonnie for helping make our party a great success.

I'm an activity director at The Springs of Scottsdale Retirement Community and I booked Marty for our annual Thanksgiving Tea...I must admit, I really wasn't sure how our residents would react to a comedy show but I went for it anyway. Marty was a hit, it's no lie when Lonnie tells you that Marty will have the audience belly laughing. Very professional, energetic, clean, and funny! Thank you for making this event a success and I look forward to working with them again.

Well, here we go again! As Activities Director for 8 Active Adult Communities in the West valley of Phoenix, I have contracted Marty several times to entertain my residents. Each and every time, he was a smashing success and last Saturday (November 20, 2010) was no exception. He performed his Holiday Show in which he presented all new material with the same degree of energy and side-splitting humor. His costumes were SO creative, especially the one for the opening of the second half of the show. The residents were laughing continuously and gave him a standing ovation at the end of the show. He even took requests for a couple of his "traditional" (does one EVER say "traditional" and "Marty Berk" in the same breath??)songs and he gave us his renditions of "Guitarzan" and "Here Comes Jones". Marty (and his Manager, Lonnie) never fail to make my communities happy, and they are the easiest and most accommodating entertainers with whom I've had the pleasure to work! If anyone is considering an uplifting, clean and riotously funny evening of entertainiment, I strongly recommend Marty Berk's Hilarious Musical Comedy Show.

Review by Jane Z.

Marty and his alter personalities will keep you in stitiches! It was almost as much fun watching other residents laughing at him as it was to watch his antics. Marty and his assistant Lonnie are a delight from set-up to breakdown. Hire him---you won't be disappointed! Great,clean,hilarious fun.

Review by Brenda B.

Marty did two performances in August of this year and then we booked him again for a concert in October at Sun City Grand in our "concert" hall. His show is totally self-contained and we did not have to do anything except provide him with a stage and an audience. Once he arrives to set up for a show, he gets ready for his show quickly and smoothly. He has a wonderful repoire with his audience and pulls them into the excitement of the characters he creates with music and comedy. His show contains elements of different emotions so that one laughs, then cries and then leaves with a feeling of warmth and love thanks his giving personality. As people were leaving, they were many comments such as "You must have him back," and "When will he be back, I want my family to see him!" Too much fun for everyone.

Review by Cindy P.

Marty has been in our active adult community on several occasions: for our St. Pat's party, for a concert, as entertainment for Christmas in July, for a short comedy show after a meeting, etc.

Even though the residents have seen him here several times, and many have attended his theater shows, they always enthusiastically ask to have him return.

Review by Teri A. P. S.

I chose Marty to bring humor to my Seniors Health Fair and boy did he. The show was clean and fun and my residents enjoyed him very much. Because I work with seniors I am always looking for entertainers that will not insult or say anything off color to my population. I would highly recommend Marty for any event.

Review by Marcie H.

As Activities Director for 8 Active Adult Communities in the west valley of Phoenix, I have booked Marty in all of my venues in the last three months (May - July, 2010). I can say, without exception, Marty entertained and delighted all of the residents who attended. He was personable, engaging, and downright hysterical to the point one resident confided in me, "I've been laughing so hard, if I don't excuse myself to the ladies room, I won't be presentable for the rest of the evening". Marty went out of his way to accommodate each community, was professional and non-demanding, and made dealing with him one of the best experiences I've had working with entertainers. To date, I have scheduled Marty for six more appearances over the next few months. Anyone considering an entertainer who is CLEAN, funny, and will make you look like a super-star for contracting him should go first and foremost to Marty Berk's Hilarious Musical Comedy Show.

Hello Marty: It was so enjoyable having you put on your show at Desert Vista. We all had a great time. I e-mailed everyone I could think of the website to one of your skits so they could see how fun you are to watch. I have to confess when I need a good laugh, I pull up "Along Came Jones" and it puts a big smile on my face. You were just like one of the family here at this park sitting there
chatting with us for hours after the show. Best wishes to you and your family.

– Barb Whitmore / Desert Vista RV Park

Hi Marty! Just wanted to thank you for bringing your zany humor to our Center and showering our seniors with laughter and song! You brought smiles to all their faces and we appreciate you traveling all the way to San Diego to perform for us!

Best of luck and thanks again!

– Melinda Wynar - North Inland Senior Center

"Marty's performance was a laugh out loud joy ride!!! Marty, you are filled our hearts with laughter and delight. We can hardly wait for your next show at North Tempe Senior Center!"

– Aileen Schmieder / North Tempe Senior Center

Thanks for a great performance at our Senior Center! They all loved having you and hope that you will come and entertain us again. The magic of laughter does wonders!!!

– Camille Keeler - Program Coordinator, Red Mountain Senior Center

Thank you for bringing laughter into our senior centers with a multi-faceted performance. The two performances in February at the Apache Junction and Red Mountain Senior Centers were enjoyed by all in attendance...It is not often that we have the opportunity to have such a high caliber entertainer like yourself at our senior centers. Thank you for truly proving that laughter is the best medicine!

– Daniel Taylor - Executive Director, East Valley Senior Services

Everyone at the Human Resources Appreciation Gala thoroughly enjoyed your performance...Thank you very much for coming out front and shaking hands with the guests, I know you were tired, very hot and probably just wanted to relax...The woman that you gave the Elvis scarf to is still taking about your show.

– Sally Richmond, Delta Airlines

Wow!!! You must lose 10 lbs. per performance!!! What energy!!!! You were hilarious...Our Los Angeles Extravaganza was very successful and your act was the perfect exclamation point on the evening!

– Ruth Cantu, Herbalife International


Thank you so much for a wonderful show. You made our Holiday Party something very special. I haven't heard one negative comment from any of the 200 or so guests. They all loved it. My personal favorite was "The Streak"...We'd love to have you back next year if you are available.
