We had Big Daddy headline a comedy night to raise money for the Special Olympics and he not only helped us raise a lot of money, he tore the roof off the joint and the night was a complete success!"
Thank you so much for your generosity and willingness to give your time to our event. Multiple people came to both Mark and I and expressed how much fun they had. It was a pleasure working with you and I sincerely hope you'll consider coming back next year!

Thanks again for all the laughs last night! Everyone had a great time and we really appreciate you making the trip up to Bucks County for our school auction event. We were thrilled with the amount we raised for our school! Thanks for keeping it "clean" for our Catholic audience. That said, I heard a few people (my husband included), who mentioned wanting to see your un-edited version!
It was great to meet you in person!

We cannot thank Big Daddy Graham enough for the show he provided for the Knights of Columbus Council #4921. The night was a huge success and of course full of fun and laughter. Never a lull in the comedy. This was the second time for Big Daddy to perform at our benefit. The material was fresh and the interaction with our guests was great. Looking forward to see what's next.

"BIg Daddy Graham ROCKS!". The Valley Forge Forge Patriots' Girls Softball team recently hosted our first ever beef and beer to raise funds to send our girls to the softball World Series in Baltimore, MD later this summer. My sister is a faithful listener to the BDG show and suggested I contact him about headlining our event. BDG responded immediately and followed up exactly when he said he would. The night of the event he had the parents and supporters roaring with laughter and applause. Big Daddy Graham stayed after his performance and chatted it up with the crowd and signed some books. What a true professional. I truly appreciated dealing directly with BDG, it was so easy. Big Daddy Graham has set the bar high for our future events, One of the attendees is now considering bring BDG to their next fund raiser.Wish us luck in Baltimore! A very Happy Fundraiser

On behalf of the members of the Deptford Twp Police FOP Lodge 72, we would like to say "Thank You" to the one and only Big Daddy Graham. He was the headliner for our 3rd Annual Comedy Show fundraiser on October 18th. He put on a great show and everyone had a great time. He kept everyone laughing to the point in which people said that their cheeks were hurting.
Being in a Philadelphia sports fan area everyone looked forward to seeing him live. We listen to his broadcast show all the time and he brought that same energy to the stage. His generosity and the donation he made to the lodge was greatly appreciated. It has been over a week and we are still receiving comments and emails from people saying how much of a good time they had.
Hopefully we will have an opportunity to work together again. Big Daddy thanks again for all that you did for us.
Odess Myers Jr. President FOP Lodge 72
Hey Big Daddy …You helped make our 4/6 comedy show to benefit Wounded Warrior Project a big success... In fact it is our largest turnout to date on top of that …you KILLED! No surprise to me. BDG has been killing since the Comedy Factory Outlet days to Pitman Broadway Theater & a hit on WIP Sports Radio. I highly recommend you. Hope we get to work together soon !

To Whom It May Concern,
We would like to thank you for Big Daddy for making our Comedy Night fund raiser a huge success. We expected to give the crowd of 150 guests a few laughs, but had no idea they would be roaring all night. I can’t begin to tell you how many calls we received today about your performance. Your humor, material and delivery make you the great comedian you are. In the future, if anyone asks if we know a good comedian with a great act, we’ll say “Big Daddy Graham.”
Thank you from all of the members of the Citizens Crime Commission.
We reserved Big Daddy Graham for a party for one of our clients, and could not have been happier. The professionalism he brought to the event, and OUR clients loved him. He was the highlight of the event. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking to book a comedian for any event.

Thank You for the GREAT SHOW! You packed the house! Everyone had a terrific time. With your support our fund raiser was very successful. Our Post was able to make a very generous donation to The Wounded Warriors Program and to the Veterans Homes of New Jersey. Your donation
from the sales of your book" Last Call...remembering my dad", was truly appreciated.
Looking forward to doing it again. Still laughing.

Thank you for appearing at our technician appreciation dinner!!! We got a lot of bang for our buck. Our teammates enjoyed your company as you worked the room for quite some time prior to your show. As for your comedy, you killed it! Thanks for “keeping it clean.” I know that must have been difficult.
Your Friends at Bridgestone Retail Operations
On behalf of our Polar Plunge team I wanted to thank you for a great show on Saturday, April 21st. Our team met this weekend and some of the comments were:
" I was still laughing at some of his stuff a few days later"
"Interesting book - not what I expected - some moments were funny, other's made you think"
"Great show - hope we see him next year"
We truly appreciate your support of our team and hope we can work with you again.
Also, we can't thank you enough for donating the proceeds of your sales back to Special Olympics NJ - thank you for supporting our work and our team.
I helped produce the TWO FUNNY PHILLY GUYS Show at the Borgata's Music Box and the show would end with a standing ovation. A really fun show!"
We've had the TWO FUNNY PHILLY GUYS Show at the Media Theatre twice now and both times we've had to sell Standing Room Only. Fantastic crowd-pleasing show!
Patrick Ward, Executive Director of the Media Theatre
Thank you so much for a great show! Everyone who either called, texted, or emailed me said they had a blast! Since Helen's Hope organized in 2007, we always hosted a Halloween Party. This year we wanted to change it up and I have to say... I was nervous about making the switch. You truly helped us knock our event out of the park! Everyone really had a good time. The fact that you can connect with our mission of helping others with cancer, I believe, touched the crowd. I hope that we can work together again sometime in the future. Wishing you lots of love, health & happiness!
Hi Big Daddy,
On behalf of the entire Nazareth Academy High School community, thank you for hosting our 6th Annual Blue and Gold Auction. It was an amazing night full of laughs and fun.
Everyone wants to know if Sister Mary Joan survived Big Daddy -- I don’t know, maybe it’s the other way around! Did you survive Sister Mary Joan and all the crazy bidding for dinners, lunches, parking, poker and bowling?
Thanks again for a wonderful evening! Take care of yourself…

We hired Big Daddy for our Office of the Year party. He was prompt, professional, and very easy to work with. The crowd had a great time and continued to talk about Big Daddy's humor for days. We look forward to winning the Office of the Year title next and having BDG back for more fun.

Hey Big Daddy, thanks so much for doing our Club. You did it well. All of the guests had a great time. You are the best! This looks like it is going to be an annual thing at the Club for Christmas!
Who knows, we might even get new members out of this. From the Bogota to the Shed. Now you have reached the big time!

Big Daddy: Just wanted to thank you for the great show you put on for our little league organization. You definitely rocked the house and the people who attended thoroughly enjoyed your unique brand of humor. The event was a complete success and I hope that we can have you back again in the future. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

What a performance! Well done, Big Daddy. You were on top of your game - as would be expected. Yet, you went well beyond what was expected - the move to the center of the event (vs. the stage) was well done; the trivia questions were great (...yet, I suspect that will cost me!).
You truly made that a remarkable evening for Community Interactions and the people they serve. Thanks. We'll be seeing you again. Soon.

I am writing to sincerely THANK YOU for making the benefit for my sister-in-law a HUGE success. As you can imagine with our family situation, laughter was certainly the best medicine for everyone in attendance.
It did not go unnoticed how much time you offered to personally greet everyone and make sure that there were smiles everywhere. My sister-in-law needed a night to forget about life for a while and just simply enjoy the moment. You helped make that happen and our family is extremely grateful.

Big Daddy was a huge hit at our recent Annual Dinner. As the emcee, he kept the energy level high and the program moving along, and he interjected humor and stories that put everyone in a great mood. Our Club members remarked what a good time they and their guests had; many called it the best Annual Dinner they had ever been to. Big Daddy was a big reason for our success, and I would highly recommend him.
-Ted Dahlburg, The Traffic Club of Philadelphia
The Bankers, Lawyers & Debtors thank you for the great performance at this year's holiday party. We were thrilled that the show was family friendly and appropriate while still keeping everyone laughing.
We've been huge fans of your book about your Dad and are now fans of the comedy show. Everyone was appreciative of your donation to TOYS FOR TOTS. It was surely appropriate for the Christmas season.
Big Daddy is the best!!!

As Programming Vice-President of the Men's Club at Adath Emanu-El Synagogue in Mount Laurel, NJ, Big Daddy Graham’s performance was one of the most entertaining, funny, and insightful programs that we have ever heard! Not only did our congregational audience love his standup routine, but they were really into how he got into the business including radio and television. Personally, I would love to have him come back and perform in the evening sometime real soon. Keep up the great work BDG!! As Tolly would say, "You were AWESOME!!"
-Steven S. Brown
Congregation Adath Emanu-El
Big Daddy Graham’s range of comedy, style, and adjustments to his audience were truly remarkable. His humor was in good taste and his performance exceeded our expectations. We received unsolicited feedback from more then 40 attendees saying he was the highlight of the three-day weekend of activities. I would highly recommend him and am looking forward to an opportunity to have him perform again.

You routine seemed perfect that night, warming appropriately to the audience, relating in a common way to its obvious background and applying the right degree of even ribald humor in non-gratuitous fashion. I can assure you, from my post event conversations, that everyone loved your show.

We had a great turnout for the dinner and evening program and everyone was totally entertained by you. Your spin on our familiar Philadelphia sports celebrities and teams mixed with everyday humor was great! Makes us want to tune into 610 WIP every evening.

-Mechanical Contractors Association of Eastern Pennsylvania Inc.
His comical anecdotes (now I know why we men don’t have urinals in our own homes) and insights regarding not only sports, but life in general made for a great evening. We all enjoyed having Big Daddy and look foreword to his return here again.

You Rock! Wow, what an event! The 8th Annual Celebrity Roast featuring Harvey Holiday was a smashing success! The attendees are still remarking that it was the best Roast they attended to date with the organization. I can’t begin to tell you how much the guests for the event are raving about you and the spectacular job you did. You kept the roast fresh and flowing down uncharted waters and the audience in stitches. It was awesome!

Your down-to-earth humor kept us all laughing. So much so that several of my employees commented that it was probably the best party we have had to date. I would highly recommend your act to any of my business associates looking to do something similar for their company.
