As a former CPA, John was in the audience for more conferences and meetings than he’d like to admit so he knows exactly how to help ensure your event is fun, productive, and memorable. And if you would like, he can easily incorporate a game show or keynote presentation while he is there.
What You Can Expect from John
- Peace of MindOpen or Close
Perhaps the greatest benefit John provides is damage-control capabilities. If one of your speakers is late or can’t perform, he can always help to fill in the gaps of the convention with his own material so that your audience never knows there is a problem. Should a speaker run a little long, John can quickly transition to the next speaker so the overall event stays on schedule.
- EnergyOpen or Close
John will provide much needed breaks between presenters by giving the audience plenty of comic relief to get them through the day. This is especially helpful for a day of Continuing Professional Education, where John can deliver the same comedy that has been heard regularly on SiriusXM Satellite Radio and Pandora. By researching your organization prior to the event, John is able to also incorporate plenty of customized material as well.
- LaughsOpen or Close
This is an often overlooked skill of a great Master of Ceremonies. In addition to the other benefits mentioned, John can liven up any series of speakers with customized introductions and witty, off the cuff humor. This helps your attendees most because research suggests that humor produces psychological and physiological benefits that help people learn.
- ExperienceOpen or Close
You can be confident you’re in good hands because John has over 400 performances strictly as a Master of Ceremonies. Your day will progress seamlessly as he expertly introduces your speakers and smoothly transitions from one to the next.

What does humor have to do
with team building?
Bringing everyone together through laughter is clinically proven to:
– reduce stress,
– increase productivity, and
– increase communication skills for team building.
The Harvard Business Review says, “The workplace needs laughter. Laughter relieves stress and boredom, boosts engagement and well-being, and spurs not only creativity and collaboration but also analytic precision and productivity.”
How much productivity? According to the Stanford Medicine ScopeBlog, a study “found happiness made people about 12 percent more productive.”
When the team planning this event had informed me that we were hiring a comedian, I took it at face value… But the outcome was much more profound than I had expected…Even weeks after your performance, it’s amazing to see how this event has lent more levity and cohesiveness to our team.
John’s quick wit, clean humor, and ability to pick up small yet funny details made it enjoyable for all. We’d love to have him back…next week!
Garrett is sharp, wry, quick, and clean – everything you could possibly hope for and more. He is a breeze to work with in shaping his presentation and is naturally funny to be around even before he steps into the spotlight.
If you are looking for a fun and different way to build company morale, treat your employees and share a common laugh, invite John Garrett to join your event. You won’t be disappointed!
As a meeting planner, it’s such a good feeling to hear throughout the conference the wonderful things people were saying about you. Thank you for helping make us look so good!
Most impressive was John’s ability to incorporate material from the event into his set. His witty delivery and ability to incorporate the entire program into his performance was an unexpected bonus.
John’s professionalism, preparation style and performance execution was, quite simply, STUPENDOUS! I would highly recommend John for any corporate event that could use some fast-pace, high-charged comic relief. He’ll go above and beyond to connect with your group and will deliver a performance that people will be talking about long after your event is over.
In the days following our event, I received many phone calls from our clients praising your sharp wit and ability to find humor in everyday situations.
I cannot think of a better way to have ended our anniversary event than with your humor. I, along with the attendees, was most impressed with your customization to our event and our audience. You definitely made us shine and we thank you!
