    Your show today was quite inspiring and I am quite sure it touched everyone who was present, so much so that I just had to skip chow to leave a comment (I wanted the book too lol). Keep doing what you’re doing as I’m sure God’s plan for you is to save lives through your work. Many thanks for visiting the NAS Pensacola.

    Bernie, I just saw your show for NAS today and absolutely loved it. You story about your brother, Scott, hit right at home for me due to my struggles with an alcoholic father. Thank you so much, you killed me!

  6. Nicholas Maxwell

    Bernie, I went to your Happy Hour Tour in NAS Pensacola. Normally Military Training is dull, long, and boring. Your Happy Hour tour was none of those. I found it funny, entertaining and imformative. Thank You

    P.S. I support your Waiting Rooms with EPSN in grocery stores. Lets get going on that. lol

  7. Jennifer King

    I went to your show today at NAS and thought it was great! It was nice to have someone share personal (trumatic) experience with us. It’s puts things on a more personal level. Presenting such a serious topic with a light heart and jokes helped me pay attention and maybe “wake up” to things around me and my actions. Thank you for your visit-

  10. Luke Harlin

    Hey Bernie I was at your Happy hour here at NAS Pensacola. Thanks for the great laughs and inspiration. Everything you said is so true. I’m glad that there are people like you who are willing to go against the grain of society and do such shows that actually have a message.I know personally suicide hits home with me. Sadly i have a few friends that are gone because of alcohol and suicides. Sad to say i’m only 18…..but what ever you do don’t stop doing this. comedy really does cure.

  11. Daniel allen

    It was an honor to hear your Happy Hour show at NAS Pensacola. I work at the FFSC so know all too well the impact alcohol and drug abuse has on our military men and women. Your approach opens the door for more people to seek the help they need. Thank you.

  25. LCpl Owens

    That you for coming out for all of us. I enjoyed having a laugh from your humor and listening to your life story and learning from it. I’m sure we all greatly respect you coming out to teach us such an important life lesson and in a way that’s much more enjoyable then how we usually get lectured on these things. OORAH!

  26. Justin Annis

    Hey Bernie, great show! I Love the moral based comedy, it takes some serious talent to combine good clean comedy, with relatable issues in society. I am thankful for your appreciation of the military, and your open willingness to entertain us! Semper Fi brother, keep up the good work!

    Thank you so much for coming out and showing us the love Bernie. You KILLED. I was dying laughing in the beginning and on the verge of tears at the end. It was a powerful show, and I know at least everyone that was their with me was moved! We need more role models like you in our lives, alot of people tend to lose sight of themselves here. I struggled with drugs and alcohol myself which one of the many reasons I joined the Corps to begin with. Again, thank you so much!
    God Bless

  40. Mademoiselle Nonles

    :) FUN SHOW! Your story was delightful and quite touching as well. I adore your relationship with your brother and the fact that you changed your life rather than letting yourself fall into a deeper hole with what was happening in your life.

    Keep making people laugh and sharing the stories and the jokes!! :p

  41. Jason Simmons

    I really enjoyed the show today Bernie! It was very funny and I’m glad I was forced to go haha. But on a serious note I really enjoyed the message you provided us. It was very inspirational and motivational for myself. Thank you very much!!!

    Loved your show! And greatly appreciate the support! Thank you.

  43. Justin Levine

    Your show today was great, I thank ATT for making us go. I doubt I would have heard about this if they hadn’t have. the jokes were funny with a serious message, i dont think that many comedians can pull that off. Thank you.

  44. Viviana Castillo

    Like most all of us there today I was told I had to be at your show today and was not super excited, but as I was told to leave I again was not super excited about it. I am glad I was forced to be there! It was awesome! Your show was very touching. You are such a survivor and I’m sure a true inspiration to many people. Thank you for your support and keep up the amazing work.

  45. Tyler Jon moehring

  50. Bazanarauz

    Great Show Today… You were real funny but I did get emotional about your brother passing away. I know what it feel like to lose someone. I lost my son almost two years ago and I got so angry with God that I started doing stupid things also. All I am really trying to say is your story touched me alot in a positive way and I hope other people can be touched the same way. I appreciate You… God Bless

  51. Kristin Burleson

  53. Connor McGarry

    I just wanted to say that your show today was amazing. It was nice to have a break with some great comedy, but along with a message. The way the two incorporate into your show makes it very powerful. Thank you for your story and for helping military members worldwide. Keep up the good work!!

  54. Remy Gooch

    You killed today at your comedy show! Your story was quite inspirational and sorry for your loss! Keep doing what you do and as marines would say, “give em hell.” Thanks for the laughs today, oorah!

  56. Alexis

    You killed today for sure. I walked into that room thinking this brief was going to be boring. But as soon as you stepped foot out on that stage I sat up in my seat and I was busting up the entire time!!! Then once you started getting into your personal expereince I could relate. I just wanted to thank you and also say that you are great at what you do. Best of luck to you.

  57. Stephen H

    Awesome show! Thanks for making a military presentation NOT boring!

  58. Amanda Criswell

    I was dreading the presentation we had today at NAS, until you got up on stage and moved everyone in the crowd with your awesome jokes, and touching stories. Thank you for sharing your story and opening peoples eye’s to what can really happen when people get careless with alcohol. Amazing show!

  59. Nate Price-Presslaff

    Amazing show today… It was a great break from the everyday military routine. Your story is mind-blowing and incredible. For you to be able to make me laugh, cry, and do some self-reflection in one hour is remarkable! Keep up the good work and Best Wished to you and your family.

  60. Elisapet Masina (AM)

    I love all your jokes… had me rolling on the balcony!! I was having a ‘blah’ of a day but after your show it really brightened my day!! COMEDY IS THE CURE!! I can connect with alcohol having taken the life of a close and love one! But only through God and forgiveness….plus with a lot of laughter and family support are we only to overcome these demons! Have a good week!!

  61. pfc kilpatrick

  66. Cody Dodd

  67. Gabrielle Allicia Martinez

    That was one of the best suicide awarness presentations I have ever seen. I personally want to thank you to opening my eyes to realize that some people do need help and sometimes we don’t see it. I’m going to make a point to seek help for my sibling. Thank you for your personal experience and story.

    Airman martinez

  68. Raymond Pirmantgen

    Thank you for the show, and especially for the message. It was truly inspirational.

  69. LCPL Dela Rosa

    Hey Bernie, saw your show today and was honestly touched by your life story. It is becoming all too common now and days for people to stay secluded and afraid to ask for help and now I honestly believe that your show can and will save many of our armed forces service members from making bad decisions. I thank you for making a difference in this world. Thank you Bernie. Hoorah.

  70. justin fischer

  71. Jacob Gamez

    Thanks for what you are doing out there.
    good work.

  72. SN Nickolas Politika

    Thanks for the laughs and the message. Good luck, kill them good in your future shows. PS I was there

  73. PFC Montiel Mayoral

    Thanks for coming out and telling your life story. I really thought that it was gonna be a boring lecture on alcohol and suicide. I thought I was gonna fall asleep through It but I am sure that a lot of us are greatful for the mandatory comedy show. I thought your show was great! I was deffinitely inspired and I’m sure to watch my fellow brothers and sisters and to watch out for any sort of warning signs.
    I really admire you for your strength of telling your story countless times just so you can prevent the pain of losing anyone to the dangers of alcoholism and depression.
    I also wanna meet your brother and I understand how you think he’s has an amazing life bc I know what it’s like to live with people with disabilities.

    You really made an impact on me today and I thank you.
    God Bless You Bernie

  75. AN Strautmann

    Bernie your show brought me back to some of the more difficult times in my life. It also made me think of decisions I wish I could change from my own past. However, your story was inspirational and hit home for me. I wil not get into detail here. Thanks for coming; I enjoyed the laughs. God bless!

  76. Jose Pulgarin
