I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how much my guests at my company's holiday party enjoyed the comedy set performed by Kermet Apio. Mr Apio's material was completely appropriate for the venue and the crowd, and was darned funny! I happened to be seated at the table with my manager, who is also the CFO, and was very happy to see him laughing so hard throughout the act. Despite the crowd conditions being less than ideal with a lot of coming and going, Mr. Apio handled himself with class and grace and definitely earned our respect for dealing with distractions. Both the CEO and CFO of the company approached Mr. Apio following his performance to thank him personally for such an entertaining routine. Unbeknownst to me, both of them had their doubts about how appropriate having a comedy performance would be for the party, but since I assured them that I had seen Mr. Apio's act before, they went on my recommendation to book him. Thank you Kermet for making me look good! And I'm still getting mileage out of his "who says you have to hurry when the copy wants your ID" shtick. Thank you, Live Wires, for making the booking process so easy as well. I look forward to using your services again in the future. Sign me another happy, satisfied customer! - (Rosemary Shaw)
