Seymour Johnson, NC You Rocked!

Bernie has instructed us here at Comedy is the Cure Inc after he saw how many of you came by the site to say such cool things to pick not one but TWO raffle winners for attending his show! They are: SSgt Chris Davis & Rae Perry!

From Bernie:
I was pumped to take the stage at HANGAR 4288 today  at Seymour Johnson AFB, NC!  You amazing Airmen made the  ‘Happy Hour’ Comedy with a message tour very special for me.  With the Sound of Freedom ringing outside, I could hear the laughs from your hearts inside, and we made our way through the comedy and absorbed the personal testimony as well!  I want to thank the SAPR staff for sponsoring the show and also, the VA’s, Chaplain, Safety team and ADAPT – mental health field for attending and supporting!  Enjoy your Memorial day holiday and Summer!

    Outstanding job! Nice balance of humor and “the facts of life” regarding alcohol, social boundaries when drinking, suicide, and the importance of “Wingman Concept”! Keep up the great work and always remember your friends here at Seymour Johnson!
    All the best! Rich Lambert

    I truly enjoyed Bernie’s show, it made me laugh and got me a little teary eyed at one point. His story is one that every young person dealing with these issues need to hear. It was great…I appreciate the message and may God Bless you and your family!

  7. Josh


    Thank you for the “mandatory” hour of fun at 0730! Your story was very moving and I personally related to it. Thank you again for doing your part to make a difference in the world through your comedy and message! Keep livin’


  8. Bryan

    Bernie, thanks for the show. It’s very hard to weave such an important message into comedy but you dit it well.

  9. Jeremy Varney

  10. Michael Phillips

    Bernie, Thanks for the great show and the EXCELLENT message. Even for Mandatory Fun…it was well worth it. Keep up the great support for the Military.



  11. Ginger

    Gret show! I really enjoyed hearing your life story. Thanks!

  12. SrA Price, Whitney

    I want to thank you for all the great laughs and I thought for a quick second that maybe I should share my bed but… nah!!!

  13. Allen Selkey

    Bernie…great job this morning! I think your “non-intrusive” forum and humor really help pass long your story and message. Everything you said (especially the deodorant joke) was well received by the crowd. I am glad the USAF is using your venue to pass on required training – most enjoyable lecture I have seen thus far. Take care and look forward to tracking you on your website.

    God speed!

  14. Jeremy Reynolds

    Nice Job Bernie,

    I thought it was great. It beat the heck out of listening to the standard safety powerpoints and your method of sharing vs. lecturing really draws in the crowd’s attention. Thanks for all you do.

  15. SSGT Kaye

    Just here for the chance to get the free book. Kidding, enjoyed the show, much better than I was expecting! Thanks for coming.

  16. Chris Morrish

    Thanks for the great show today. I wanted to thank you for sharing your story with us. Very good way to put serious matters out there in a fun way. Thanks for what you do keep up the GREAT work!

  17. Christine Gerber

    Thanks for coming Bernie. I thought it was awesome to hear you story. I have personally not had problems with drugs or alcohol but know a lot of people who do and hopefully your story can help them along the way. Thank you for taking your time to come see us!

  18. Darryl

    Thought your show was awsome. My troops enjoyed it, as much as i did. Hearing the story/training from your perspective is definately more entertaining/educational. A lot better than the regular boring old school slideshows we get. Come back to Seymour next year for our annual refresher training. Thanks!

  19. brandon

    Thanks for the show today. I really enjoyed your story. Please come again.

  20. Richard Lambert


    Great having lunch with you today @ the SJ AFB Club!

    I just wanted to reiterate that if you ever wish to escape from the world, you are more than welcome to use my “Manly Man” digs in Idaho Springs, Colorado (30 min. from Denver). I can connect you with a couple of friends of mine there who can show you the lay of the land. Second: Do let Tony know that we can snag him an F-15 Strike Eagle flight at some point in the future (if he is interested).

    In closing, I’ll be out in LA at some point in the future to visit with Barry Williams (Greg Brady of the Brady Bunch series)…I’ll certainly look you up. Maybe we can hit a golf ball or two, out there!

    In closing, always remember to…”Bring your best to the moment”! Kind Regards, Richard Lambert

    Great Show Bernie, Your story stuck a bone to my family ties. I to have twin nieces Alexis, & Ariel the youngest of the two is fifteen minutes younger. Ariel was born with sarible palsey,an only given two years to live. With me being in military, when I went home on leave all I wanted to do is party with friends. Sure I stopped by to see my nieces,but was only for an hour or so.As I got older, married,& had children of my own partying slowed to a crawl.I still talk to them once or twice a month. Luckily Ariel is still with us & the twins graduate high School on the 27 May 2010. There proud uncle will be in OH to show them how much I Love them !

    Once Again Thank You

    Awesome briefing! Great way of to tie in safety training with humor. Enjoyed the jokes and the stories! Best safety briefing I have ever been to. Great way to get the message across. I really think that you were able to get the message across better then any briefing or training that I have ever been to. Thanks for using your talent for a great cause!

    Just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed your show. I am glad that you do this for the military. It is a very nice thing that you do. I remember seeing you a few years ago at a previous base and I am glad that you are still doing this. It is a very inspiring and informative. I think that your show is a lot better than the same old boring slide show. Keep doing what you are doing. I am sure that you are reaching people everyday.

    Tell your brother that Seymour Johnson says hello.

  41. joe williams

    great show nice keep it up and thanks for comming to our base!

  42. Chris Ricketts

    Hey man, good stuff. Way to bring in everyones attention to put out the good word. We should probably start every friday morning like that! I had a guy tell me I was cheesy cause I liked it. He’s a hater! Keep on keepin on.

  43. Cj Didier

    What an outstanding show today. Thank you for spending time with our Wing and sharing your story. Your message to have a designated thinker is smart and to always keep family on the front of your mind is very inspiring for me. You hit a home run right out of the park! Your show is something all other comedians can only aspire to emulate.

  44. SSgt Chris Davis

    Thanks for the great show/message today Bernie. It takes a real man to open up the way you did about your personal experiences. We have to attend a lot of these mandatory events but I will tell you that your show is special. I really appreciate what you are doing. Stay true to your work. I look forward to seing your show again.

    SSgt Chris Davis
