“His message at the end was VERY powerful….NO DOUBT it made a big impact on the donations we received, which were amazing”

Heather S.

“We had the best time and received nothing but amazing feedback from our donors after our event with Shawn. Everyone loved him and thought he was the best comedian we’d had in a while. I also heard from many that his message at the end was VERY powerful about his teen daughter who overcame a serious rough patch and his incredible adoption story of his son. I have NO DOUBT it made a big impact on the donations we received that night, which were amazing! We were so grateful to have him at our event and to have him share his humor and his message with all of us.”

"All who attended said this was the best event we’ve ever had and asked us to invite Shawn back"

Lorraine Z.

“Shawn Reynolds took center stage at our fundraiser for Journey to Housing and all I can say is WOW. All who attended said this was the best event we’ve ever had and asked us to invite Shawn back for a repeat performance. Shawn’s talent was on full display at the beginning of his act when he improvised some very funny jokes about people he met while waiting to go on stage (including my husband, so fun!). He was spot on and over the top funny. Shawn was also gracious enough to speak about our charity at the end and do “the ask”. His sincerity and appreciation for our work with the homeless resulted in a better-than-average response! Shawn was just an amazing comedian and speaker for us!”-Lorraine Z., Journey To Housing (Dearborn Heights, MI)

“We absolutely LOVED Shawn! Nothing but the highest praise for him. Here’s my quick highlights:
-The show was hysterical and had EVERYONE laughing.
-Our audience appreciated his research of Spokane and how he incorporated that into his set.
-We STILL have staff talking about the event and how funny it was.
-Shawn was down to earth and easy to work with on the backend.
-Shawn also toured our building, learned about what we do and even emphasized the importance of our work at the end of his set.
-10/10 would invite Shawn back for another performance!
-We raised over six figures at this event and the number is still climbing, that’s the most we’ve raised in a very long time. Well done Shawn!”

"We didn’t have to break the bank to put on our event. And he toured our clinic and showed that he genuinely cares for what we do"

Christine K.

“Usually pregnancy center events are heavy…this one was filled with light and laughter. What a great night! On the front end, working to get Shawn scheduled was a breeze –his team worked with our team effortlessly. The communication was great and we didn’t have to break the bank to put on our event. Donors at our event said it felt so good to laugh, and two attendees specifically said that he is their new favorite comedian! Shawn is down to earth, personable, hilarious and has a sweet heart and spirit. He toured our clinic and showed that he genuinely cares for what we do. He has his own incredible story of adoption … I am so grateful for having Shawn as our guest speaker. We’ll definitely be having him again!”

"Shawn is the funniest comedian we’ve ever had at our long-running fundraising gala"

Denise V.

“Shawn Reynolds is the funniest comedian we’ve ever had as a headliner at our long-running fundraising gala. He is a crowd pleaser who consistently delivers hilarious clean comedy that creates belly laughs throughout the ENTIRE performance. His comedy is certainly worthy of a Netflix special! We at Aspire highly recommend him!”

"I can honestly say, he was one of the best speakers we’ve ever had in the seven years of doing this!"

Shelby H.

“We hired Shawn as the keynote speaker for our annual fundraising banquet and he was FANTASTIC! I can honestly say, he was one of the best we’ve ever had in the seven years of doing this! He is FUNNY, his jokes are wholesome and family friendly for ANY crowd! One of our staff members was crying from laughing so hard! But what impressed me most was how well rounded of a speaker he was. He did an excellent job of connecting our mission to his act, using personal stories from his life to relate to the crowd and ultimately created a great opportunity and atmosphere for guests to give generously, which was exactly what we were hoping for. I would HIGHLY recommend Shawn to any non-profit looking to hire a speaker and/or comedian!”

“Shawn was amazing! His faith and experiences made for an excellent, clean night of laughs. We loved that he was not only SUPER funny but was able to be passionate about our cause. After the show, the positive feedback and compliments from our supporters are still coming in! I would highly recommend Shawn to any nonprofit fundraiser or faith based group!”

“Shawn was a HUGE hit with our fundraising gala guests! Loads of laughs! I have received a ton of great feedback on him since the event. He was great with communication, very low maintenance and just an all-around nice guy. We definitely want him back in the future! His performance was comedy with heart!”

Grace Christian Academy Fundraiser (McLean, VA)

“Shawn had the audience rolling with laughter at our comedy night fundraiser. His brand of comedy is clean, relatable, and so smart! What I appreciated most, though, was how he brought our charity’s focus into his act through a sentimental and funny story about his family. He is super professional and very easy to work with. If you are thinking about booking him for your fundraising event, do it…he’s your guy!”

“Wow! We recently had Shawn Reynolds perform at our annual fundraiser and he knocked it out of the park! Our goal for the evening, as we raised money for our maternity home, was to create an evening of community, laughter and love. Shawn helped us do just that! His sense of humor and jokes had us laughing so hard our belly muscles hurt! We highly recommend Shawn for your next event! His performance was just what we needed to top off our night!”

Dr Lori B.

So Big Mountain House Maternity Home (Whitesville, IN)

“We hosted a fundraising event with comedian/speaker Shawn Reynolds and it was truly an amazing night. Shawn had the audience in stitches! He has a tremendous ability to connect with the audience and find humor in everyday scenarios. His stories of parenting left us wondering what it might be if he were our Dad!Shawn finished his set with the story about him and his wife adopting their son. It was a funny story with a serious message about the positive difference we can make in other’s lives. Not only was Shawn funny, but he was clearly passionate about OUR mission. He gave a description of our program, provided the lead-in for our latest video and then did an amazing job urging our donors to partner & give. We look forward to working with Shawn on future events because this one was very successful!”

“What a gift Shawn was to our volunteers & staff for our Dream Team event at Life Church Buffalo. He brought our attendees so much joy and laughter! The next day, everyone I spoke to was still beaming and even quoting some of his jokes. It’s not just that he’s hilarious but he clearly has a gift to see the uniqueness in people quickly -and to call out the beauty God has placed in them. Truly impressive and clearly Spirit-driven! He is so talented and I just don’t have enough compliments for him! We can’t wait to have him back!”

Bethany Mazur

Life Church Buffalo (Buffalo, NY)

“A rare occasion when a comedian can give you belly-aching laughter, inspirational stories and relevant life material in one exceptional show, but that is what Shawn did! This sold out church event provided for good clean fun for couples of all ages. We highly recommend Shawn Reynolds!”

Patti Connor

St Therese of Lisieux (Shelby Township, MI)

“Shawn performed at our annual dinner party that we threw for our church volunteers. From meeting him the first time, all the way to saying goodbye, Shawn was extraordinary. He does his research and comes prepared with specific knowledge about your organization and crafts humor around what’s relevant to you. From start to finish Shawn had the entire crowd hunching over from laughing so hard. The biggest concern is always how a comedian who is not necessarily a household name will compare to the big names of comedy. Well, please take the recommendation of our 300 people; Shawn is every bit as good as your top Netflix household names! We highly recommend him and will definitely be booking him again.”

“We booked Shawn for “Comedy & Dessert” date night at our church. We had an incredible night full of laughs, tears, & sore abs–everyone loved it! He was hilarious (and appropriate for a church event) and the most common thing I heard after was, “When can he come back?!” It was more than worth the effort and cost and I’d do it all over again!”

Michelle Hintz

House of Prayer (Bismarck, ND)

“Our parish had Shawn perform a Marriage Ministry date night and he had people laughing so hard, they were even crying. Everyone has been saying that they haven’t laughed that hard in a while. Before Shawn had even left, some people requested that we book him again! He was fun, easy to work with, and super laid back. We’re actually nervous that we set the bar too high for whatever we do next! We can’t say enough good things about Shawn’s performance!”

Luke & Dana Thelen

St Mary’s Church (Westphalia, MI)

“Wow! We couldn’t believe how much fun we had and we were able to connect with lots of community members; someof our regular members and some who’d never been inside our church before. And Shawn really knows how to work a room and is so hilarious. He was really great and easy to work with as well. And now my staff all think I’m a genius because I booked Shawn! We’re already in talks to bring him back in the future.”

Pastor Aaron Bauer

Issaquah Christian Church (Issaquah, WA)

“Shawn should be considered a “Comedy Magician” -his jokes, personality, and talents had our audience amazed! He really made our event one of the absolute BEST marriage events we’ve done in 15 years! I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews from everyone. He was a joy to work with and his flexibility exhibited the love he has for Christ! Five stars!”

Mike & Dawn Runyan

The Lexington Church (Lexington, KY)

“Our church was in need of some joy and laughter. We were so hopeful Shawn could help us with this and he did not disappoint! We had nearly 400 people attend our comedy night and everyone LOVED Shawn. I laughed until my face and belly hurt! What a great time for all our members, from couples young & old. It was a GREAT and much needed event for our church!”

Pastor Ben Durbin

Bridge Community Church (Leadington, MO)

“After our event with Shawn, we’re already planning to bring him back! He’s HILARIOUS, humble & sincere, and has an awesome testimony. He truly blessed our church’s volunteers with a flood of humor! Our volunteers were even requesting merch/shirts to buy with his name on it. Can’t wait to bring him back to Hope Chapel!”
