    I enjoyed the show. The officers sitting behind me even laughed, but not very much, they are a little uptite. Dude, you have one funny message, my favoriate was the vomit and the corn joke. That happend to me last month. I hope to follow you and your message daily on facebbok, now that we are allowed to look at it while working. I hope you have a great show tomorrow and hope you have better luck getting dates, I know what it is like to have women problems. I now know I need to quit the booze, you have given me inspirations and glad we invited you here.

    Bernie, you were AWESOME! SPECTACULAR!, You sure brought laughs, inspiration and motivation to our military crowd today. For me, it was just what wrote at the beginning. You are truly a comedian, made me laugh and all, but you were so good that I was a little nervous when you also made ma shock in front of my buddies, got tearie eye with your personal message. WOW, you are extremely good. Someone that can take you in and out of that laugh zone into a serious note and back again, truly has all of those things to be “THE TRUE COMEDIAN” My hats off to you Bernie, Thank you!!!

  10. Eric

    Just as advertised, a great comical show with a hard hitting message to those who may be making those high risk decisions. Hopefully they will keep your message and remember them when it is time to make those decisions. Thank you for your support to the military and communities with your talent and your personal story.

    Your show today was phenominal. I truely enjoyed your material especially how it moved into the bones of your message. I dont know how you keep yourself composed when you talk about such a serious topic as the loss you had. Keep up the good work, it is a worthy cause. Nobody ever died from to much information.

    You KILLLLLLEDDDD it this morning!! ;) I can’t express enough how enjoyable you were to watch. I’ve never kicked off a morning laughing so hard… (esp at a ‘mandatory work function’)! Your humor brought me to tears, your story brought me to tears, and your message hit home! Thanks so much for sharing a piece of “you” with MacDill! I would love to see you again. Enjoy your travels! :)

    Bernie, thanks for the outstanding show and heartfelt message this morning. I’ve been in this business for nearly 29 years and that was the most entertaining and interesting safety talk I’ve attended. What you do for the troops is awesome!

  34. Brad Robbins, MSgt

    Wow!! Best safety message I have ever heard and most enjoyable “mandatory” event I have attended. Thank you for visiting and passing a great message to the Airmen.

  35. Kevin Lynch

    I know you may have joked or “killed” us about us being required to be at your show but that was the best thing the AF has done. You have to understand we are coming from, The AF doesn’t have anything or one good for entertainment ever come on base. So if they didn’t make it manditory would would have missed your incredible show and message. Keep up the good work, laughter is great and I really needed it, thank you for changing my day, you rock!

  36. Amber

    Bernie! Man, you were awesome!!! Ya know, at first I was like…a Mandatory Safety Briefing from a comedian, this is gonna suck! lol It definitely didn’t suck!! You put comedy in with your powerful, personal story…what an incredibly strong person you are. I was at the morning show, I laughed so hard at one point I was crying!! If you’re ever here in Tampa for a comedy show I would definitely buy tickets! Thank you for coming to MacDill and sharing your story with us. YOU ROCK!!!
