‘Happy Hour’ hits Eglin AFB in Ft. Walton!

I had a blast today at Eglin AFB in the Conference Center.   This was my first time here and I want to thank Command and Safety for making the show possible!   I hope you great Airmen and civilians had many laughs, and took an even deeper message away with you.  In error, my office chose a Raffle winner ‘early’ today, as opposed to the following day’s noon deadline as I mentioned on stage.  That person is Brandon and he will receive a book.  To honor what I said from stage, a second WINNER will be selected at noon tomorrow(Saturday).  There will therefore be two winners from today’s shows!  One thing I have learned is, you have to walk the walk, and I will be walking to the Bank for more money and Barnes and Noble to buy another book to mail to tomorrow’s winner!  lol  That person is Kathy Gedney!

    Hey Bernie…fantastic show and message. I also lost someone the way you lost your brother but like you demonstrated there is always life afterwards and its up to you to make it one worth living. Good luck with the rest of the shows and I hope you enjoyed Eglin.

    I was at your show this morning. I was reluctant to go because I thought it would be just another boring safety briefing. I was totally wrong. Not only were you informative, but you were one of the best comedians I’ve seen in a while. Thanks!

  22. scott songer

    Bernie, funny stuff with an honest message…not the usual USAF 0-0-1-3 don’t drink or you’ll die rhetoric.

  23. Joshua Dirr

    The show was hilarious. I love the message. Thanks for coming out to Eglin AFB.

  24. Dana Hedquist

    I’ll make this pretty short & sweet since you already know you put many thoughts in the heads of plenty of Airman on this base. Never was expecting all the laughter that your briefing brought on. Taking that curve in the middle and explaining some challenges/experiences in your life, definitely made people analyze choices that can be made. THANKYOU for coming & your comedy will bring joy and thought into the upcoming holidays!

  25. Jacqueline Barker

    Great show, really enjoyed it. Thanks for bringing your message, this will hit harder than any other method.

  26. Melissa

    Hey Bernie!! I was so impressed with how you incorporated the message into comedy to keep the crowd alive. It was an amazing story and the way you told it was awesome. I am excited that the military is seeking ways to keep the attention on such an important subject.

  27. elizabeth

    Awesome job today! It was refreshing to have mandatory fun that was actual fun and not just another death by powerpoint briefing. Thanks!
