“The Habitat for Humanity fundraising gala ended the evening with comedian Jimmy Tingle. We hoped that our guests would leave on a very high note and they did. Jimmy was witty, funny, topical and connected immediately with the audience. Jimmy, thank you for your very entertaining contribution to the success and fun of our event.”

Mr. Tingle has served as auctioneer for our agency’s Possible Dreams Auction for the past two years and has done a phenomenal job. Mr. Tingle works hard to understand the entity he is working on behalf of and gives his all day-of at the event. He is obviously quite funny and knows how to get a crowd bidding and laughing at the same time…he will work tirelessly to make it work for you and it is always a great time. I look forward to working with Jimmy more in the future and highly recommend you do the same!

MASC hosted Jimmy Tingle for our 2014-2015 Joint State Convention with the state school superintendents.  As highly anticipated as he was before he took the stage, he walked off to a standing ovation…His event was the highest rated session at the convention.  Our membership is diverse racially, ethnically, culturally, linguistically, and economically and Jimmy shook the house with laughter across the board.  He was timely, relevant and accessible to the whole audience…there are very few people out there who can deliver a first-class production that is as clean as it is brilliantly satirical, sharp witted and satisfying to a broad audience.  I would recommend him without reservation as one of the safest bets that you can make to draw registrants, fill the room, win over the audience, and demonstrate respect for your members…

On behalf of the AANE Board of Directors, Gala Committee, Staff and mostly me, I wanted to thank you once again for your fantastic performance at our Gala this past weekend at The Black Falcon Cruise Pier.  You did an amazing job keeping the level of excitement, entertainment and fun up throughout the speakers, Live Auction and Fund-A-Need; while working so hard to bring in every penny from a group that was a times a bit challenging.  Thank you again for your support of our efforts and your high level of professionalism and creativity.

Women’s Bar Foundation

A big thank you, Jimmy, for the tremendous job you did to make our audience feel good about raising their hand to donate to the Women’s Bar Foundation. We rely on the proceeds from our annual Comedy Night to fund our pro bono legal programs and you were masterful in helping us exceed our fundraising expectations for the evening. Not only was the audience jumping at the chance to bid during our auction, but they were howling with laughter as you encouraged them to step up and donate to a great cause. This was our most successful event to date and we have you to thank!

PATRICIA E. COMFORT, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

I got a lot of positive feedback about the event, and particularly how much they enjoyed your performance.  My only fear is that it was so much fun, my Board will want to do it AGAIN next year!  Keep fighting the good fight!

“We were hoping to provide a night of uplifting entertainment for our scholarship fundraiser and decided a comedy night would be a unique event. Jimmy Tingle played to a sold-out 550 seat auditorium and the audience loved him! We are still getting rave reviews weeks later and our scholarship is secure for years to come. We highly recommend him to anyone and everyone! A great comedian and a great guy!”
