Do not book this vendor. I should have realized that if her reviews were 3 years old, there was something wrong. Up until the booking, the vendor was responsive. After the booking, there was slow or no response. Needless to say, one week before the event, I had to cancel and find someone else! Don't waste your time and energy.
Belynda arrived early and appeared to be ready to perform. She engaged a variety of topics with appropriate humor and we were very pleased. We had a very small venue and she appeared to be comfortable with our diverse facility team.
We hired Belynda for my college graduation party. She was a hit! She was very funny and didn't miss a beat. After the show, several guests wanted to know where we found her and told us how much they enjoyed her performance. I would definitely recommend her!
I really enjoyed Belynda's performance. We were having a staff party, once she started she had everyone's attention. It was great fun! I would love to see her again, and recommend everyone to see her.
Belynda gave a rip roaring performance! She is very funny and had me laughing with tears in my eyes! Her humor is easy to relate to and well told. She was absolutely engaging and entertaining! Very comical and highly recommended!
I generally don't stay at staff parties very long. I usually stay long enough to eat and I sometimes will take the food back to my office to eat. This was the first time I stayed through the entire event. Belynda made me laugh so hard that my face actually hurt. She was thoughtful and insightful, but mainly funny. I am a fan.
Belynda Cleare recently performed at our office party. She immediately captured the audience's attention with her perfect timing and delivery. Her routine was fresh and original. She is a natural audience pleaser. She made her routine interactive and easily engaged the 50 people who were watching. She is quick on her feet and kept the audience rolling in laughter. We were all mere putty in her hands. She provided an exceptional comedic performance which I would highly recommend to everyone.
I enjoyed this show so much. Belynda had me laughing so hard I was crying. Belynda humor comes form her heart which is huge. She uese her life expereinces with such flavor and richness that you never get full of it. Thanks so much to Belynda for mkaing me laugh and feel the love.
Belynda made my daughter's shower a complete hit with all my guests. Everyone had a blast and she was able to quickly connect with them. She got everyone involved without putting anyone on the spot.....joint humor....it was great!. Having Belynda entertain "the troops" was awesome. I did ask that it be kept family-friendly as there were older guests that attended and Belynda did just that, but at the same time was HILARIOUS! Thanks so much.
Belynda is a total entertainer. She sings, dances, tells funny stories and gets the audience involved in her act. I have seen her perform on stage for large audiences as well as in small private parties. She is able to adapt her comedy to the audience and has something for everyone.
I have experienced many live comedy shows and I have to admit, Belynda is one of a kind. Her totally original Diary of a Road Dirt Diva left me with the abdominal workout of a lifetime. I still laugh thinking of her charismatic approach to help heal life painful experiences with laughter. I have to say it is a must watch!
Response from Belynda J. Cleare:
OMG Rita, that was an awesome review, I am truly touched thank you so much!

Influences & Inspiration
Originally I was inspired by Carol Burnett, the joy that show brought to me each week as a child, made me want to entertain and share my gift of laughter with people.
I was also heavily influenced by the mentors I had growing up. I was fortunate to have a strong foundation laid by my Sunday school teachers and serveral truly phenomenal school teachers, that not only educated but also nurtured and mentored me. As a result of the love and encouragement I received from my educators, I recognized how it had changed not only the goals and dreams I had for my adult life, it had inevitably changed the outcome of my life. My childhood was filled with trauma and challenges that affected my self esteem and personal motivation. My success was the byproduct of the role models that believed in my abilities before I realized I had any. My mentors recognized my potential and challenged me to dream big and aim high.
I was galvanized to “pay it forward” and reach back to others, especially women and children to and help them recognize their gifts and potential.
Speakers and Comedians that have influenced and inspired me are:
Terrie Williams, BerticeBerry, Trevor Noah, Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah, Les Brown, Patrick Henry, Sinbad, Judy Carter, for shattering the glass ceiling Moms Mabley, Lawanda Page, Joan Rivers, Whoopi Goldberg, Lilly Tomlin, Ruth Buzzy, Phyllis Diller, Lucille Ball and Gilda Radner. Other influencers are Wanda Sykes, Rosie O’Donnell, Penny Marshall, Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, D.L Hughley, Flip Wilson, The Wayans Family
