"Stacy is one of the best female comedians I have ever seen - she is a thinking person's humorist." Jacque Abplanalp, Vocatus Productions
We loved having Stacy with us for our women's retreat! She was super funny and added her testimony which touched home with a lot of our ladies. Stacy was easy to work with leading up to the event as well. Would definitely book her again!
Personal attention, very comfortable with all ages, knows how to control the room and shes so very funny...just what we needed to celebrate a milestone birthday- a dose of clean comedy and fun. I would highly recommend for your next event or special occasion.
This was our second time have Stacy and Jeff perform for our company party and it was just as good as the first time! The fact that we invited them back should say enough about them. Super easy to work with, fun, FUNNY, very talented, and reasonably priced!
Stacy and her husband, Jeff Pederson were fantastic! Everyone at our event was in agreement with this. They came very early to set up all their stuff and were very professional in every way. Their combination musical/comedy act was really very very funny and they had everyone laughing and having a great time. They personalized their act for our group of teachers and really connected with their audience! Our school would no doubt hire them again and I highly recommend them.
Stacy ad Jeff Pederson have been nothing but thorough professionals from the get go. They were very punctual, warm and cordial. Since I was the co-ordinator I was able to catch bits and pieces of their show as I had other errands to run. However, I received excellent feedback from the audience who were very entertained. Thanks once again both of you for making our show amazing.
Stacy and Jeff far exceeded my expectations! They were absolutely hilarious and great to work with! I would recommend them a million times over!
Jeff and Stacy were with us for Saturday night and Sunday morning gatherings. They are two very gifted artists who know how to work a crowd. Their fresh, original material gets all ages engaged and fills the venue with laughter. Most importantly, they bring a message of hope that inspires people toward faith. Very accommodating to whatever the host needs and a delight to know in person.
Best performers you can hire in colorado. Really funny couple kept everybody laughing all night. Day afterward People kept calling to let me know they had an amazing experience. I would recommend Jeff and Stacy to everyone.

"Stacy is a gifted comedian with that rare ability to combine cultural observations with self-effacing humor to not only knock you off your feet laughing but to also bring a great deal of heart. She knows what it is to be human and has the ability to laugh at life and all it's twists and turns. Stacy is one of the best female comedians I have ever seen - she is a thinking person's humorist." Jacque Abplanalp, Vocatus Productions.
“Can I just say that the one event I attended where Stacy Pederson was the key note speaker was AMAZING! She was hilariously funny and poignantly real and deeply touching! I have literally been thinking about the things she spoke about for an entire year!! If you are thinking about hiring her- quit thinking and just do it! You will not regret it! (And by the way, she probably has zero idea of who I am, what event I attended or why the heck I am even writing this. Basically, I am just a person who was blessed by her words and her authenticity. I am not paid or even asked to write a single word of this.- She is just that good!)” ….Trisha Winslow, Event Attendee
"I HIGHLY recommend Stacy Pederson, a marvelous comedian. Not only does Stacy provide super fun entertainment with her always witty and often side-splitting humor, she prepares her talk by listening to the different presentations during your event and makes “respectful” fun of things she heard in a way that reinforces learning. The perfect performer to maximize the emotional and educational impact of your event, Stacy will win all hearts, even though she has a soft spot for women and fellow mom-preneurs. Book her today. Stacy’s schedule is sure to fill up!" Dr. Josephine Gross, Co-Founder and Editor of "Networking Times"

Oh, yeah — and she is inspirational, too!" Lisa M. Wilber, Avon Platinum Executive Leader (Avon’s “Captain Platinum”) Author, Speaker
