I thought John was amazing and very funny. My guests loved him as well. I booked John for a birthday party. I wanted him to be funny and give a positive word to carry on throughtout life for all the ages that would be attending...John gave so much more! I would recommend John as a speaker for any type of event....you will be happy you did. He will meet with you first to make sure he is completely sure of what you would like him to speak on then he cones out and gives you 150%! Thank you John....you did a fantastic job.
