Angela Riccio is one of the best comedians I have ever seen. She is very professional and a real hoot. She entered our house dressed as a 1950’s house wife who didn’t get an invite to the party. She fit right in as she mingled with our guests one on one with bag in hand and hair curlers to boot.
Angela really knows how to work a crowd.
She ended our evening with a live group show, and left our guests in awe. Angela made our Halloween party one we will never forget.
Highly Recommended. What are you waiting for?
You won’t be disappointed!
Angie was a riot. Non stop laughter for the entire “show”. She exceeded all expectations! If you are looking for a fun, memorable, and HILARIOUS birthday experience look no further! Thanks again for making my boyfriend’s birthday one that we will never forget.
Angela Riccio is hilarious!! Laughed so hard our faces hurt. Occasion was a 50th birthday roasting, and Angela shocked guest of honor with how well prepared she was for the "roasting". Attendees are still talking and laughing about her performance. Angela provided clean adult humor based upon family oriented event. She did not have to be crude or vulgar to be funny. Angela's interaction with audience was spot on. Awesome Job!! Everyone in attendance loved her!! Thanks, Angela for a performance to remember!!
Angela put on a phenomenal show, even days later guests were raving about how funny she was. The whole party was in stitches! What a absolutely great show!!!!
Great show by Angela--thanks!
We would hire her again in a heartbeat. She is very thorough in her preparation and I can tell she really cares about her clients. A++
I loved how you zoned in on being the new receptionist, that was a perfect lead in. You kept it funny and clean....well kind of clean, but that's ok. I enjoyed it and I know everyone else did. Best of luck to you in all your endeavors!
Angela came to my home, which was a little tight for 50 people, but she was excellent in working the room. It was for my parents 50th, and before she came I filled out about four pages of notes that she used to get to know my parents, my guests, and me. She used the material throughout the performance and it made it very personable. She was very professional and really easy to work with; I highly recommend her, for whatever occasion.
Angela was outstanding. This was her second time at Kenosha Country Club for our Italy vs. Germany golf tournament. There was not a dry eye in the room from all the laughter. Nobody was off limits not even our host who booked Angela. I would definitely recommend Angela she was GREAT.
I hired Angie to provide us with some entertainment for my husband''s 50th surprise Birthday party. I was a ltitle worried af first because our family and friends can be a little obnoxious. Angie was amazing, Angie did a wonderful job interacting with the party guests all the while "roasting" my husband. I did not expect to be a part of her show, but she dragged me down too! My guests were laughing thru the whole performance and still laughing days later! I'm so glad I hired her and put her payment in an envelope in my cabinet! Thank you Angie for the wonderful entertainment!
Angela provided entertainment as "the party crasher" at our backyard BBQ. This was a work related function, so we did need to be a bit careful with the teasing and language. Angela was great and read her audience well. This was a relaxed group and Angela played on that. Angela's Dolly character is a lot of fun and everyone enjoyed her "mingling" at the party. We didn't want to "stop the party" for entertainment and Dolly the party crasher fit the bill..
Response from Angela Riccio Comedian ~ Brava Entertainment:
Julie, thank you for trusting my style of comedy at such a special event! You and Barry were wonderful to work for!
We were so happy to have worked with Angela, she was professional, hysterical and just lovely to work with. We had a party for a group at our church and she did a great job making it a really fun, funny, and entertaining evening - all the while making sure that everyone was comfortable! I highly recommend Angela as a talented entertainer! Thank you Angela! We were just at another event 2 weeks after the our event with Angela and folks were still thanking us for having such a fun party!!!
She was very professional from date of booking thru the date of show. Told exactly what she needed and when to guarantee a successful show. She included a lot of personal information about my husband in his 50th Birthday Roast to make it a lot of fun for friends and family.
I just wanted to let you know how much we all enjoyed your performance on Sunday.
My Husband was surprised beyond belief. You did a fantastic job. Everyone there could not stop
talking about how great the show was. Very Professional I would recommend you to any of my friends and family
and I hope that our party will help drum up some business for you. Thank you again for all the fun, smiles and laughs
you gave us.
Angie is hilarious!! We are an investment firm that had an educational tax event on April Fools Day and thought that having a comedian would make a serious topic a little more fun. Angie did just that!! She was very professional and REALLY funny at the same time!! Our clients had a great time. They are still talking about her and telling us how much they enjoyed her!
I hired Angela for my brother's 50th Birthday what a great choice. She really worked the crowd and my brother was laughing so hard through the entire show! So many people told me how great the entertainment was and how it made the party so memorable and fun. Her style of comedy is great for any crowd and she does a fabulous job at including everyone. She was a hit!!!
So glad to have found Angie for my husband's 50th Birthday party. I usually do not write reviews but she was hillarious and the hit of the party. With little information she was able to give my husband and friends a night to remember. I know booking entertainment is not easy but she was "Simply the Best" and would hire her again in a minute. My guests were so delighted also with her performance and could not stop laughing. I was laughing so hard that I almost peed in my pants!!!!!!!!
Angie was great! Everyone enjoyed her crazy and witty humor. She did a wonderful job of keeping the interest on the Special Guest while including the audience. Several guests at the party were talking about using her for events that they had coming up. I would highly recommend her.
Angie is amazing! From her entrance to her exit, her costume, her fantastic improv ability and quick-on-her-feet humor - Angie is a must have at your next event no matter how small or large! She entertained twins, multiples, family & friends from across the US as we laughed so hard to the point our sides hurt and we had tears rolling down our faces. Thank you Angie for bringing such joy to our annual convention. You ROCK and are definitely an honorary member of the ITA!
Angie was great- actually the 2nd time I have seen her. She was the HIGHLIGHT of the bachelorette party. Bride-to-be was in amazement and didn't know what was going on...hilarious! Show was personalized, Angie was very professional and reliable prior to the event and very accommodating. Can't wait to hire her again!
A combination of natural talent and years of experience make Angela Riccio a huge hit! My family and I saw her in New Lenox, IL at a show with all ages in the audience and everyone loved her. Well done Angela!
