Patrick did a Gig at our women's club for our monthly luncheon...he knocked it out of the park!...Thanks Patrick!
Patrick was great! Very professional, kind, and communicative leading up to our event. And then when it was show time he was hilarious! Such a great person to work with and you won't be sorry if you book Patrick, you'll be rolling on the floor laughing! We had many comments after the event about how funny they thought Patrick was.
Thank you Patrick!!!
We just had Patrick out to our volunteer appreciation night. He was prompt, courteous, and very professional. This was my first time booking something like this, and he mad it so easy for us.
As for the show? It was the funniest night of my life! The show was appropriate for all ages and funny for all ages. Our volunteers will be talking about this for a long time.
Comedian Patrick Hanifin brought his years of experience to our Christmas event and put smiles on the faces of everyone who came to the event. We had more people talking about Patrick Sunday morning sharing their time together, experiencing not only clean laughter, but Patrick’s testimony story and his love for Christ. Thank you again comedian Patrick Hanifin for investing in our church and people, and entertaining us with your stories connecting us all and reminding us the reason for the season.
Blessings in Christ,
Rev. Robert Churchman
Patrick had everyone laughing! He is great and everyone can relate to his topics! Our group contained people from age 2-97 and everyone enjoyed him.
We had a great time with Patrick. He was a perfect fit for our church celebration for our Pastor. Everyone has told me how good Patrick was....very funny and even interacted with a sweet little 5 year-old heckler! I hope we will have an opportunity to have him back again.
Patrick was amazing. We had a crowd of different ages and he handled it like a professional. He was so funny for all age groups. I would highly recommend Patrick for your next event.
Entertaining and very funny.
Patrick was great!
Prior to the event, he communicated clearly and came prepared.
He had great stage presence and finished on a high note.
Funny performance for all ages; easy going personality
Thank you very much!
A wonderful entertainer proving an amazing evening of comedy entertainment for our Church Christmas Program. Looking for a clean talented comedian for your special event, he is your man!
Patrick was very funny and pleasant. He had us laughing out loud.
We enjoyed Patrick and would recommend him to other churches! He was very funny!
Patrick was an all-around great guy! Very professional before, during and after his show. He made a point to know about the event beforehand, arrived early, and befriended those around him. His comedy, delightfully clean and refreshing, was enjoyed by all!
Thank you Patrick for bringing laughter to our glorious celebration. Patrick is the joke in jokester. He brings the joy in joyful and he is the ultimate fin in Hanifin.😊 We love you Patrick!
Patrick provided our seniors at their monthly luncheon with such an incredible comedy presentation that was different from the normal standard. Our entire group was laughing for over an hour and the comments were "he was the best entertainment we have had in the last few years". Patrick was in constant contact with me in coordinating the setup and was a real joy to work with. He really connected with our group and was so pleasant and engaging. Margie Orland, Program Coordinator - Congregation Emanu El, Redlands, CA Looking forward to future GIgSalad opportunities.
Patric was on time, funny, and friendly. We enjoyed listening to his hour long, non-stop, clean jokes and afterwards having friendly conversations with him. I would recommend Patrick and welcome him back as a return favorite.
We just used Patrick at our Church's Marriage Retreat, just a little over 100 people. He was quick to respond to questions in the planning phase and arrived an hour early before his scheduled time. He brought with him his own equipment and made the process so easy. He was funny and engaged the crowd. We appreciated that he kept it clean and appropriate for our crowd. We recommend him!
Everyone loved him!!
Patrick did a very good job for us at our church's Volunteer Appreciation Dinner.
His comedy is appropriate, good and fun. Our crowd received him very well,. His fee was very fair.
Our group was pleased with Patrick's comedy routine. It was appropriate, clean, and entertaining.
Patrick showed up early and brought his own sound and lighting equipment. His material was all clean and he had us all laughing. Afterwards, people were still talking about his jokes and laughing.

What to Expect
Self contained squeaky-clean comedy with hysterical, clever, original, smart material, that will make you feel happy! (Not generic, foul, unoriginal, night club material, that you'll be sorry you came for and never want to see again.)

Amazing!!!!!!!!! Our group is faith based so we wanted clean, but we never expected someone to be sooooooooooooo funny!! Patrick is so quiet when you meet him and when he gets on the stage he is not only a phenomenal comedian, he was a excellent MC. We still cannot believe our good fortune in finding funny, clean, creative, and affordable. We thank you Patrick for a evening to remember!!! Giving Hope to the Homeless!!! -Gail Monestere, American Family Housing 25th Anniversary, Meadowlark Country Club, Huntington Beach, CA
We've heard nothing but great things about your presentation yesterday. The South Orange County Community College District holds a staff development day for the classified employees of our 3 campuses every year. It's a challenge to put something together that all the employees like. In the past our guest speakers have usually focused on some team building aspect or self improvement type of presentation. Usually not very inspiring. When I was tasked to find a speaker I wanted to make sure that I would not get complaints. Everyone enjoyed your comedy presentation in 2013 it was funny, relaxing, uplifting and just a time of real enjoyment. You set the tone for the rest of the day. Everyone went home asking for the same thing next year! Thank you again and I wish you the best. Hedy Renfro 2013

The show was fabulous! The jokes, stories, interaction with the group, you really made it about us! We had sooo many compliments and people coming to tell us how they enjoyed your performance, and how nice it was to have comedy from a comedian that didn't have foul language thru the show. Needless to say you were great! I wish you nothing but continued success with your comedy routine. Thank you again! -- Cheryl V, IADCCT Convention, Riviera Hotel, Las Vegas, NV
Patrick Hanifin is the best comedian in Southern California! Will Morton, Owner and CEO of Million Laughs
In the Proverbs, King Solomon said, "A merry heart doeth good like a medicine...". You made our hearts exceedingly merry with your highly entertaining and squeaky clean comedy performance when you were with us. After the program, we heard numerous comments from the audience, including such things as:
"I can't remember the last time I had such a good belly laugh."
"I laughed till I cried."
"My jaws are tired from laughing so much."
Not only are you a wonderfully funny comedian, you exhibited complete poise and every aspect of your show was done with out-and-out professionalism. It is obvious that you are adept at dealing with unforeseen circumstances. Even though we had some problems with our sound and lighting, you didn't let it bother you but just went on with the show, keeping us laughing all the way through.
May God bless you bountifully as you continue to use your talents to entertain in a wholesome manner.
Yours in Christ, Ron Butler, Mainstream Pastor, Canyon Lake Community Church
Patrick was not only funny but very professional. We stayed in contact all the way up to the show. I have had some bad experiences in the past hiring comedians but I was beyond pleased with Patrick's overall show! Our paying guests were at the point of tears with most of his jokes. It's very hard to find a funny "clean comedian" these days but look no further. You sure kept our concert series going with ease! Hire this man and you will have no worries! Thanks again...! -- Ray W, Ciao Summer Concert Series, Riverside, CA
Patrick was absolutely amazing. I don't think I've ever laughed so hard, he is extremely funny, and worth way more than he charges.
