It was a pleasure to have Ron Butler as the surprise Presidential guest at our recent conference in Atlantic City. We were impressed by the amount of research he did beforehand, including multimedia work and writing a hilarious parody catered to our Association. Ron was very generous with his time, taking some great photos with attendees. Overall, he was the hallmark event of the conference; everyone loved it and some perhaps wished that he was actually the guy in the White House.
We highly recommend them to your organization and our Democratic Family.
Shoot was great. You were a pro, super patient, nice, and never had to say anything twice. I think it'll turn out quite funny and solid.
Everything went very well… The jokes about some of the speakers and attendees were great. Thanks for all of your efforts and patience with the time and date changes.
People were literally crying when he entered the stage, thinking it was really Obama. The client was thrilled, and is planning on using him again in the near future. Thank you for making this event a major success.
Thanks so much for a spectacular appearance last night. Best impersonation I've seen... and I've seen many! Appreciate your professionalism and willingness to take so many photos with the TE folks.
Buddy! We did it! Thanks for hanging in there, you guys rock! All the best.
Absolutely first rate… We really appreciate what you have done for us... Thanks so much for supporting our cause as we cannot do these programs without caring and supportive individuals such as yourself.
I have been in the industry for over 30 years, and these guys were A-grade entertainment. I have hired them for six events in total.
It was fantastic for us… people were swarming around the booth… I’ve never seen more cameras in my life.
They really knew what we wanted to hear… they enlightened our hearts… this is really good stuff.
Thanks for a great show!
The show was outstanding… Everything I expected!
We really appreciate the way your group went the extra mile to customize the script… In every aspect you exceeded our expectations.
You made the night and were the talk of the town.
Our shows together were a great success. The audiences loved you and I look forward to working with Politicos Comedy Brigade in the future.
This was the best night we’ve ever had at The Log Cabin. You guys are great. You can perform at our venue anytime you want.
Thanks again for a fantastic show!
Talk about exceeding expectations! No one wanted the routine to end. All I heard afterwards were comments about how the entertainment couldn't have been better… our members will remember fondly for the rest of their lives.
Everyone LOVED the show. Still talking about it, and will be for years to come.
You ROCKED it at the Hard Rock Wednesday night! Thank you!
I just wanted to say thank you. For the first time, everyone looked better in person than in their pictures, and they were all so nice!
