Sonny has been making people laugh his entire life. He’s just naturally funny! Being the only male sandwiched between two demanding sisters has enhanced Sonny's comedic abilities; it was either laugh or cry. As a teacher/instructor in the urban community he has gained priceless experiences that are incorporated into his material. His experiences have culminated to create a comedic entertainer extraordinaire! Instead of just seeing humor as a hobby, Sonny has fine tuned his comedic gift into a science by incorporating storytelling, games, improvisation, stand up as well as video and computer technology into his routine.
Sonny has performed (stand-up comedy and hosted)
I hired Sonny for my 50th birthday party and he was a very pleasant and funny act. Sonny presented an entertaining routine with various anecdotes and jokes that kept my guests interested and laughing. He arrived early and was a perfect gentleman with a mellow vibe. I would recommend this comedian for a delightful time for your guests.
Sonny did a great job for our employee annual party. He was very professional - arrived on time, prepared appropriate material for our group, did a very funny and relevant stand-up routine, and was not deterred by partygoers who were noisy in the back of the room. He is a good choice for a company event.
I hired Sonny for The Yaktown Poets Revue: Labor Day Edition. As a Host for this poetry extravaganza, Sonny was funny, witty, charming and a COMPLETE HAM! My patrons loved him and they are STILL talking about him and that was several weeks ago! The Yaktown Poets Revue LOVES Sonny!
Sonny was extremely funny and I think those that attended would say he was the highlight of our event! He not only kept us laughing, but also gave away prizes to some lucky folks in the audience. If you're looking for a Christian comedian, look no further because Sonny will have you laughing hard and enjoying every minute of his routine.
Sonny really made an impression on my guest. He was funny and very professional. I would recommend for other events.
Good clean comedy. Extremely funny! We laughed until we cried. He was the highlight for our event. We highly recommend him for your event if you want laughter to be a part of it.
Sonny is very versitile. I have booked him twice within two weeks. He did my husbands's 50th birthday party and the next week he did my uncles 95th birthday party. Even though the crowds were different he was able to adjust his routine to fit the occasion. He was on time, funny and very professional. I will use him again in the future. His pricing was resonable and his jokes were funny and clean. I would highly recommed him. Thank you Sonny.
