We appreciated the thought and creativity that went into all aspects of your show. From the subtle jokes to the obvious ones, from the standard juggling of pins -which you rocked btw- to the more revolutionary inventions like your S shaped boards, everything won us over. I hope you get many many thank yous like this one after each show.

Sheila Powell Martin

I have to tell you this was the most entertaining show we have been to in a long time. I am sure we got on Susan's last nerve by laughing so much the other night. It is not always easy to find something to laugh about in my life but I must tell you listening to him certainly gave me something to laugh at. I really needed that! Everyone that went we know could not stop talking about what a great show it was.

Thank you for bringing him back- I really think I could watch him year after year!
