Recent email from corporate client Swenson Granite Corp. : “What impressed me and others most was your recall ability”

Tom:

I want to thank you for probably sending me back to the hospital, as I had hernia surgery at the end of last year, and I think I tore some stitches out, I laughed so hard!

Seriously, I am fine, though pleasantly sore from the laughter. We all thought you did a great job with a nice mix of humor. I was watching other folks around to gauge their reactions, and there was genuine laughing responses all around. Well, except for the “Candy Crush” player, but she’s a hard one to please anyway, so don’t take that personally J

Your knowledge of New England really make your jokes resonate, and you distributed the jabs well between all the states. Your topics were just edgy enough to garner interest without going to that place where folks start squirming in their seats and looking at their watches, so well-done on that score as well.

What impressed me and others the most was your recall ability. Everyone kept asking me “did he visit the stores to get all that information about us?” How you remembered the specifics about each person that I gave to you I’m not sure, but it was flawless, and really set things off. I think you even convinced Dennis to swear off lipstick-wearing forever (or at least until he visits Ogunquit again this summer).

Thanks again Tom, and to you Rob for recommending him for our party. It was perfect and a great change of pace for us. This will be talked about until next year’s party I’m sure.

My response to his email:

“Wow!!!! Dave, Thanks sooooo much!!! Times have been a bit tough for comedy lately, so this could not come at a better time!! No matter what kind of performance a comic delivers -good or bad- no one will ever pen a report or testimonial the likes of what you have just done. So, again, thanks mucho!!RideIn2011_108It was a really tough haul to get there but it is always worth it when one can generate real fun and laughter- a true party- and no matter how great the comedian, we are only as good as our audience.

I try to encourage other comics to learn their clients and audience. It doesn’t take much to craft a great show when you keep the client as a priority and abandon your own ego. I pride myself in taking the time and the rewards are what we shared the other night- fun for all!
I was and am really impressed with the history and tradition of Swenson. Amazing what the dreams and work of one man will achieve when put to resolve and hard work. Obviously, there is a great legacy as anyone can see who visits your site and sees the video and reads the history. Bravo! It was evident that his dream is still alive and well with the camaraderie that I witnessed Saturday.
I had a team of over 25 sales execs as a regional manager for Fuji Medical Systems and know the importance and significance of team building and bonding. You and your team are a great example of that importance.
I only hope we meet again sometime. Please give my regards to the group and share this if you wish. And, yes,Headliners-Comedy-Club2_grid_6 Rob does know how to match a comedian to a client! He does a super job!
Best,
Tom Hayes”
