"Building Up The Kingdom Through Laughter."
We booked Jazz for a Ladies Night Out at our church. The ladies absolutely loved him! He was funny, tasteful, and made sure to give God all the glory. We would highly recommend him for any event and hope to work with again in the future!
I hired Jazz for my church anniversary program after looking at his videos, I was sold. I contacted Jazz and he was extremely professional from day 1. My Pastor was impressed and enjoyed Jazz’s set. Thank you Mr. Tate for making our Pastor laugh. We will never think of chicken the same way ever again. Definitely would recommend for any event.
One of the best Comedians I have ever seen. Jazz Tate proves that you can be clean and funny at the same time. My church is still laughing. ~Bishop Charles Blake
