Smoking Gun From Philip Morris

....regarding Joey Perillo.......As you know Philip Morris is a Fortune 500 company and as such accepts nothing but the best. With Joey Perillo heading up the entertainment, you're getting the best. He is extremely talented, professional, and strives to make the client happy. We have used Joey on many occasions and feel that his performances only enhance our meetings. He is a true pleasure to work with and always exceeds expectations. If you are seeking quality entertainment I would recommend Joey without reservation.

Historical Character Appearance

"Joey Perillo, in his characterization of Old Tom Morris, Sr. the legendary 19th century Scottish golf professional, brought a dimension of history to life! Our guests and patrons were transported back in time through his ability to blend well researched facts with warm, entertaining humor!  Our planning team is already thinking about what character Joey will bring to life at next year's Philadelphia Golf Heritage Festival!"

......in response to my incessant needy Emails gratingly trying to elicit comment
the following was  received:

"Thank you, Joey. The client was VERY happy. I thought you got the best possible performance out of the senior executive "show host." You played very well off each other.
"We just received more kudos from one of the Cingular people as we speak. She said people are still talking about the event. Good job!"

Comedy Murder Mystery House Party at the domicile of Un-named Celebrity Sports Talk Radio Host

I just wanted to tell you what a marvelous time everyone had last night at
the party. You were terrific! Everyone called us today to say how
much fun they had - in fact, you'll be getting a call from one guest, Andy
Rosen, who said he'd like to host a party for his office staff.
  Again, it was great.
Thanks for a great time.

Character MC for Hospital Fund Raiser

Dear Joey,

On behalf of the Crozer Employee Annual Fund Committee I would like to thank you for making our Kick-Off Talent Show a very special event. Your hilarious entrance started the excitement and you created a wonderfully entertaining atmosphere for our courageous talent show entrants. The employees loved the way you interacted with the entrants as well as the audience. As you could see it was standing room only and many people could not even get into the auditorium!
[editor's note: I think the doors were locked.......]
The Kickoff resulted in over $14,000 in donations and the enthusiasm you created has brought donations to over $41,000 in the first two weeks of the campaign!
I bet the "Homicide" ratings go up with Crozer employees tuning in! [ed. note: they didn't.......]

Comedy Murder at a Typical Synagogue Fund Raiser-Social

Hi guys Just wanted to thank you both again. The event was a great success
and people were talking about it this morning at the synagogue. In fact
I think some people were still walking around in character. Hopefully the
people who weren't there will be sorry they missed it. Our goal is to do it
again next year . ........... you can be
sure I will pass on your number. Thanks again and keep up the fun stuff.

Comment From A Government Representative

Yeah, we see a lot of Joey. Seems to go in cycles. Actually, we've seen his work and can't figure out why we don't see much more of him......go figure.
