was planning a house party for my son's 16th birthday. There's not an awful lot of options for entertainment that will amuse a crowd of 16
year olds today!
I came across Pete Michaels in my internet searches but hesitated to
contact him right away because I didn't think an entertainer of his
caliber would book a simple, private house party. Although there were
other options, none of them could compare to Pete after I'd watched some
of his video clips! I knew he'd be the perfect fit for our group!
I contacted Pete & was
pleasantly surprised by how down to earth and accommodating he was! He
promptly responded to my request, made himself easily accessible & was
willing to work within our budget! He arrived exactly when scheduled &
took care of everything! The kids were so surprised & absolutely
hysterical! I was so thrilled!
Seeing them in such hysterics made the night a complete success & we now
have such wonderful memories!
The party was such a hit that the kids were still talking about it all
over Facebook & Instagram the next day, quoting phrases from the act &
Pete is an extremely funny,
talented professional & true gentleman!
We feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to see his act in person &
will definitely call upon him for future functions or referrals!"
Michaels is perfect for a corporate event.
His shows were funny,
different and fresh.
He has a large repertory of
characters and skits that truly had the room laughing.
His ability of
interacting with his audience and drawing them into the show
wonderful and he tailors his routine to your corporate needs."
Jackson Chamber of Commerce
"If you're at all like me,
entertaining your company family is very stressful.
You want to be sure the entertainment is right on, if not, it can
have the reverse affect.
If you want to sleep nights before your party, I highly recommend hiring
Pete Michaels. This was the second year in a row we hired Pete to
perform at our Company Holiday Party and he was unbelievable. Pete has a
special ability to pull everyone into the show with his hilarious
characters. He is very willing to listen and adapt his show to the
culture of your company. If you are looking for an incredible
experience for your team,
as Allstate would say, "You are in great
hands with Pete Michaels".
