Your feedback is greatly appreciated! It motivates all of the people involved in bringing you this show to strive for constant improvement. Thank you so much!

Here are a few examples of what people are saying about the show

James was an amazing performer - professional, organized, friendly, and accommodating. We had a problem with our sound system, and he generously offered his equipment, and then worked with us to set everything up. We expected him to go on at 9 p.m., but the kids were ready to go 40 minutes earlier. James enthusiastically offered to fill in the time and go on earlier. He also provided a list of "topics" for the show and gave us examples of the language and "humor" used in the show so there were no surprises. We would absolutely recommend this performer for a school event because you will have a full understanding of the show contents before he even takes the stage.

-Lynette C, Manhattan Beach, CA

Hire this guy!!!!!! It was the funniest show I have ever seen. During the show I was drinking a pepsi and something funny happened on stage, my friend was dancing with a wig on his head. I laughed so hard the pepsi sprayed out of my mouth all over my friends. This guy is hilarious. Thank you for the perfect show.

-John T, Los Angeles, CA

Ms. Theresa Smith was very good at handling logistics for the show. She answered emails timely and made sure that everything was taken care of to have the show on Hopi. From the many comments I have had from those who attended, it was very entertaining and funny! Everyone seemed to have a great time and are still laughing about this great show! To Mr. Kellog Jr. I want to thank you personally for a great time and for lifting our spirits! As people we always need a great laugh to keep us going in our daily lives. Thanks for closing our cancer conference out with much laughter and happiness!

-Lori J, Kykotsmovi, AZ

James is a great hypnotist and tailored his show to our most conservative parent's wishes for grad nite. The audience was totally engaged with the performance and didn't want the show to end. Almost everyone who went on stage was able to be hypnotized along with a couple of kids in the audience. I'd hire James again in a minute for any event

-Carol M, Fremont, CA

Everyone loved the show, He performed in front of several hundred high school students at a time and kept everyone entertained the entire show. I would definitely consider having him to do another show in the future.

-Lauren H, Valencia, CA

James showed up early and was very helpful in making sure everything was perfect for our group. His stage manager made the set up quick and after a sound check they were ready to go. The show was so funny and everyone had a blast. I can definitely say with confidence that James Kellogg Jr. was the highlight of our event.

-Maria C, Las Vegas, NV

I was very satisfied. Not ever haven seen his performance, and only relying on the website and comments, I was a little scared. It turned out great. The hardest part was to get people to volunteer. Theresa, James secretary, was very very helpful, and was a big part of why I chose James.

-Katie H, San Diego, CA

Great job!!! .

- Lorin T, Los Angeles, CA

I was concerned about having a Hypnotist at my daughters 16th birthday. James did a fantastic job! All the kids were laughing and my daughter had the best birthday ever. I would highly recommend James Kellogg for any event. Good clean fun.

- Susan V., Riverside, CA

The kids had a great time! Evan after the adrenaline let down of graduation an hour long bus drive food and entertainment for 2 hours before James performed he left them yelling for more! He did a great job and was very accommodating for our group. Job well done!

-Laura M, Jefferson City, MO

I have had James perform before and I will have him perform again. Simply the best entertainer I have ever worked with. .

- Doug B, Los Angeles, CA

James was very personable and professional. James had a TOUGH crowd full of Police detectives. Not many volunteered to go up. He worked hard to get them to relax and the few that went were fun to watch! He put on a Great show!

-Tammy W, Rancho Cucamonga, CA

James is extremely professional and very easy to deal with - he also has an office assistance who is very responsive to any questions that may come up.

-K, Vista, CA

James was perfect for our audience. He kept the show moving and everyone laughing. We couldn't believe it was over so fast. James was very professional and took care of everything including the sound. This was a big change for our family night from bingo and everyone really enjoyed the show. We will definitely have him back again!

-Linda B, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

Mr. Kellogg was a pleasure to work with, he was professional and fun! He was great, and seemed to adapt well to the audience he was working with.

-Courtney P, Fairbanks, AK

James performed at my husband’s 50th surprise birthday party and was absolutely wonderful. We had many more people come to the party than we were expecting which caused his performance area to shrink but he was very kind and accommodating about it. He just took a tiny area and made it into a wonderfully hilarious show. He was professional and patient and very easy to work with, as well as his assistant Theresa, and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks again so much, James.

-Kim F, Rancho Cucamonga, CA

James Kellogg performed for a our Mandalay Travel Club motor home rally in Hemet, Ca on March 4,2008. It was the funniest evening’s entertainment that we have ever had!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
