Sid Davis is Hilarious and perfect for your function.
He turns your venue into a showroom with his own lighting system.
Sid was hilarious! His jokes were funny and his show flowed really nicely. We had about 60 people and everyone was laughing the entire time! He was really easy to work with and the whole process was so smooth. I will most definitely hire Sid again! If you want to have a good time and laugh, he's your guy!
Response from Sid Davis:
Thanks Whitney! Your group was a hoot! I could tell they all had a good time. I love doing shows on those dinner cruises.
I was fortunate enough to be in the audience to experience the amazing talent of the stand up comedian Sid Davis. I'd never seen Sid in a live show, and anytime Sid is performing near me I'll be there. His style, demeanor, and ability to incorporate real life events into fits of laughter, is amazing. His comedic timing is impeccable and his personality filled the venue. He's at the top of must see, never to be missed, comedian list. He kept the audience engaged. There were no awkward silent moments, but rather continual laughter, the kind where your stomach aches, and you have tears flow. His mannerisms, as well as his jokes, are captivating. I didn't want the show to end. He's truly one of the best talents I've had the honor to be in the same room with. I look forward to, and will not miss, his next show near me.
Response from Sid Davis:
I thank you Teri for being head of the posse trying to get me to Portland Oregon for several years; and I'm so glad we made it happen! I can't wait to come back! LYMI Sid!
Had the privilege of seeing him at the Santa Ana Star Stage outside of Albuquerque - he was incredible making me cry through most of it. Natural delivery with a gift for connecting to the audience. Why isn't on the main stream I have no idea - other than the fact he doesn't need gimmicky crudeness to be amazing. Definitely worth seeing!
Loved, loved, loved your show at Madison's tonight!!! Hope to see you again!! Don't remember when I've laughed this hard!! Happy Easter!!
Response from Sid Davis:
Thanks Pam! Was that a blast or what?! See you next time. Hey, I'm doing my whole/unedited show in Charlotte at the downtown comedy Zone. Come out and see the whole thing. Lots of new stuff.
What a great show tonight at Cup of Humor in beautiful downtown Indian Trail! Thanks so much for being there to headline, Sid. You had us in stitches! I also caught your performance once at the Charlotte Comedy Zone you are just the best!
Sid Davis performed at our annual Holiday party for about 120 healthcare workers and had the crowd laughing non-stop! He interacted with the crowd so well and was so quick with jokes and comebacks. Videos don't do him justice, much more HILARIOUS in person. He was so professional to work with and would HIGHLY recommend him for any event!
It is the 10 year Anniversary for RDI, so we wanted to make our Christmas Party special and memorable for the staff. I found Sid on Gig Salad and after listening to other performers knew he was the one for us. He was fantastic to work with as our party date changed mid stream and getting everything approved was slow due to travel by our team. It all came together beautifully and every member of our team loved him. I actually saw staff members laughing that I never have seen laugh before. A comment by our CEO was that he laughed so hard he had spasms. His material is such that no matter the age, everyone gets it . I also had comments from some staff that his material is clean and no one was ever affended by anything said. It truly made our Christmas Party one that no one here will ever forget. I would and have highly recommended him for anyone wanting to make an event special. I truly hope to be able to plan one for another group that would love to hear him.
Response from Sid Davis:
You guys rock!
Sid came to do our Corporate Holiday Luncheon. People enjoyed his performance so much. We heard complements like, "This was one of the best entertainment we've had" and "I hope we can have him come again." His clean adult humor was perfect for our middle of the day corporate event!
His professionalism began even before the event. He contacted me by phone almost immediately after getting our request. He had a contract that allowed for customization.
Sid was fabulous! He made each and every person laugh and really connected with the audience. His show was clean but real. I had a 37 year employee tell me it was the best Service Awards Banquet he had attended! Thanks for making our corporate event a huge success!!!
Response from Sid Davis:
Thank you for your kind words and thank you Potash Corp! I do many corporate events and I caught a really warm, positive vibe from the audience as close-knit group of happy employees.
Sid was a huge hit at our annual fundraiser. He had the crowd roaring with laughter the whole hour and surpassed all expectations. Sid is well worth the money and so easy to work with. His clean sense of humor combined with stories of life’s ironies and ups and downs makes for a constant flow of top notch entertainment. Thanks Sid for a wonderful evening!

Sid is amazing from the time he hits the stage, jokes that are his own and original and adaptable to whatever region or situation you drop him into.... you have got to see and BOOK him....you will not be disappointed... he has been invited back to the Central Coast of California 3 times in the last year because we just can't get enough! He's been voted "Best of the Fest" at the San Luis Obispo Comedy Fest for good reason - no one can compare...
Sid Davis used to be the second funniest guy in North Carolina and now he's the funniest guy I want to see again and again! Some guys are funny but you leave feeling now you've seen them and that's it. Sid continues to come up with new material that is hilarious and so effectively taps into real life experiences that we've either lived through and survived and willing to admit it or tell the world it was a "friend of mine" who did whatever... And then for good measure, Sid throws in things we've never thought about but can relate to completely, like Franklin on a bill. Reminds me of early George Carlin days. Like George, Sid is the real deal!!
Sid is the funniest guy I have seen in a long time. He talks about real things that happen in life that I can relate to. His timing is superb and he is fun to watch. He makes this face of Ben Franklin and he looks just like him. There is no doubt that we will go see Sid again and again.
I have seen Sid Davis perform several times and think he is great! One of the things that I like the most is that he really has a clean but very funny act, there aren't going to be any surprises and I won't have to be embarrassed for my guests. Anyone would be lucky to get to work with this very funny family man who makes you feel like you are sitting down with coffee laughing with a friend.
I have to say that there are three classic comedy concerts I have seen: Richard Pryor's frst live concert, Johnny Carson at Ceasar's Palace way back when, and Sid Davis at the Tropicana in Atlantic City. What is amazing about Mr. Davis is how he can take everyday events and turn them into comic literature. Seinfeld does much the same thing, but Sad Davis' material stays with you whereas much of Seinfeld's act dissipates shortly after the performance. What a wonderful surprise this guy was...he should have his own TV series or at the very least an HBO special. Comedy needn't be profane to be funny and Mr. Davis proves this over and over. If Mark Twain were alive and doing stand-up today, he would be jealous of Sid Davis! Or perhaps Mr. Davis is Twain reincarnated! Thanks for the GREAT GREAT GREAT show!!!
Wow! Sid Davis ROCKS! I went to Atlantic City with friends of mine. We had a great dinner, gambled and then went to the Comedy Stop at the Tropicana. We had no idea what we were in for. Sid Davis made us laugh from the moment he stepped on the stage. Since we were at the Trop, we expected the show to be good but it was so much more. Sid's wit and satirical humor were top-notch!
I haven't laughed as hard since Eddie Murphy's RAW!! Sid Davis is HILARIOUS!!!!! I saw him some time ago at The Comedy Zone in Greensboro, and he opened the show. I hated when he left the stage for the 2nd guy who didn't hold a candle to Sid. We contacted Comedy Zone to see when he would be there next, and bought tickets in advance to make certain we got to see him. My stomach hurt the next day from laughing so hard. If you want to have a fabulous fun night out and some TERRIFIC LAUGHS, you have GOT to see this guy. HE ROCKS!!!!
Sid is a polished, professional comedian. Very creative writer and great performer. I would highly recommend booking him.

Sid flew into Santa Monica to be on my show "West of the 405". Absolutely no one knew what hit them! It was a comedy slaying you wanted to be a part of.
