Barksdale AFB Happy Hour rolls into Louisiana!

As we kick off the new year, I was very happy to get back on stage and fly into Shreveport, LA and deliver the ‘HAPPY HOUR’ Comedy ‘With a Message’ tour!   Hopefully everyone had a great holiday and returned safely to work.  Thank you Airmen for your service to our country.  Hope you enjoyed the show and had a few laughs, while taking away a new perspective on risk-reduction initiatives!

    Great show today! Second time training has been mixed with comedy. Second time I have legitimately enjoyed and gotten something out of our training. First time it has actually been “Mandatory Fun!!”

    Marvelous presentation, very powerful message in a spot on delivery! Certainly a wonderful service to the men and women of our nation’s military. I’m confidant you make many people think about their actions and reactions to life’s challenges. Your message is making a real difference. Thanks for signing the book I picked up, it will be a great conversation starter with my son starting his Air Force career. I certainly can’t do justice to your comedy, but I can pass on the message. Hope he and his comrades get to hear your message one day soon. Please keep up your inspirational labor of compassion.

    Outstanding show! I was wondering though…how is it possible to share the pages of a book with Ron White and remain sober?

    Tell Sean we said hello!
