    Im actually very glad i got to go to your first showing. I have to admit I thought it was going to be another one of those dry boring “death by power points” type of thing, but your comedy made it alot better.

    Bernie, great show all around. Great transition from the comedy to a more serious topic. You won the crowd over and delivered a great possitive message to our sailors. Thank you for taking the time to be a great role model. The sailors appreciate it.

    The show was about as good as it was last year, which wasn’t very good at all. Thanks though.

  42. Gerald


    I saw your first show today. I enjoyed it very much. Brings the point home about drinking and driving, drug use in a great forum. It is good that we are able to laugh at our mistakes. Just like Richard Pryor was able to do. We all can learn it. Best wishes to you and your brother Sean. My Scott rest in peace. I know and understand how you must have felt that day and everyday since. Godspeed

  45. JC Almonte

    Truth be told that was the best awareness/training I have ever been too. The message you sent out was inspirational and touching. A lesson has definitely been learned and I will pass that message on. I will be that friend that helps and not turn his back. Thanks again!!

  46. James W. Lambert III

    I was at your show in Groton at 0800. Awesome show. That was the most I enjoyed being educated since I watched Carmen Sandiego as a kid. Congrats on being 23 years sober. When the show was over, I definitely recommended others to catch your 1000 show. Thanks for taking the time to care.
