On behalf of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society I would like to thank Mike Conner & colleagues of Knuckledraggers improv comedy group for their willingness to volunteer time to the Man & Woman of the Year Campaign.  In May of 2012 Mike and his colleagues donated their services to provide a short comedy show with our 9 candidates at the grand finale. In addition, Mike served as co-emcee & auctioneer for the evening’s festivities.  He was professional, entertaining and provided a service that contributed to an extremely successful event.

We are truly grateful for the support of Knuckledraggers improv comedy group and wish to recommend them for future events.

Many “THANK YOUs” go out to you and your outstanding Knuckledraggers group for the amazing improvisational performance you gave on March 9! Everyone in the audience, Deaf, and hearing, thoroughly enjoyed your show, and laughed until our cheeks hurt! The skillful way in which you modified your show to make it more visual and participatory for the Deaf audience was truly amazing!

Before your improv act began, I was concerned that the hearing people in the audience would be laughing, but not the Deaf, since much of the humor or the punch line can be lost in the translation. However, the way you created your show was perfect; as we were all laughing at the same time! I am so impressed that you were willing to take a risk and develop an unprecedented performance that was hilarious, clean, and involved everyone! Furthermore, your willingness to work with the interpreters before the show, demonstrates that you truly love to entertain and provide the best performance possible!

Thank you, again! We were all genuinely blessed that night, to see such a wonderful show!

The Knuckledraggers performed at our 2011 company Christmas party. From the beginning Mike put us at ease and took care of all of the details of the show, taking the time to get to know our staff and business. They came well-prepared with extremely funny bits and had our group laughing the entire time.

We loved the performer-audience interaction throughout the show. We received numerous compliments from employees regarding the wonderful time they had at the show.

We would definitely hire them again for another function and recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone else looking to liven up an event! Thanks so much for making our party an event to remember filled with laughs!

Subject: RE: Annual Dinner Banquet for Professional Organization

The Knuckledraggers was a great addition to our banquet. You had everyone laughing and enjoying themselves. Some commented that they hurt, they laughed so hard. I'll definitely keep you in you to come back next year to entertain us again.

Thank you so much. You made my banquet a success!

"The knuckledraggers are one of the best kept secrets in the Central Valley! Everyone who attended our show had a fantastic time. From their first steps onto the stage to the final laugh of the show, The Knuckledraggers engaged everyone in the audience (old and young). Tell all your friends, and take them to see this great night jam-packed full of comedy!"
