First stop, is the land of enchantment….New Mexico! I am headed to Kirtland AFB in Albuquerque. Kirtland AFB is the largest installation in Air Force Global Strike Command and sixth largest in the United States Air Force. AFGSC is responsible for the nation’s three intercontinental ballistic missile wings, the Air Force’s entire bomber force, to include B-52, B-1 and B-2 wings, the Long Range Strike Bomber program, and operational and maintenance support to organizations within the nuclear enterprise.
I was there 🙂
Comedy Truly is the cure! Thank you for coming to Kirtland and sharing your personal story!
Thank you for giving us some laughs and sharing your story! We had fun!
Really enjoyed your stop at Kirtland AFB, thank you!
This the first ever comedy show I been to. It was an awesome experience.Thanks u very much for sharing your story.
Thanks for coming out! Really enjoyed the show and content.
Thank you for the combined comedy routine and speaker meeting.
Bernie your show was awesome! I have never seen comedy live before, and have always wanted to experience that. Your jokes were really funny, and the transition into your personal life story and powerful message was incredible. Definitely was not expecting it to move me to tears the way that it did. It was cool to see you connect with the crowd, and incorporate us into your show with the jokes. Glad I was able to take a picture with you as well for one of your memories of this tour. It must be difficult for you to do this show over and over again, seeing you talk about your life, and hold back emotions. Regardless, I would like to say THANK YOU for doing what you do! Your time with us was awesome, and I will never forget this experience. I wish you the very best with your career and life moving forward! Tell your brother Sean that Kirtland AFB said hello! It looks like your wife Melissa helps you with this website, I would like to say thank you to her as well for giving us an avenue to leave comments, and show our appreciation for all that you do!
This was one of the best trainings I have had! It was a great way of keeping all of us engaged and informed without having to use a PowerPoint. I really appreciated Bernie for sharing his story & for allowing us to feel like it is really okay to get help especially when you are struggling. I also thought he is a great example of how positive your life can get when you get help and acknowledge when you do have something going on!
Thank you for sharing with us and reminding us it is okay to not be okay and be struggling!
This was an amazing training! It was funny it was emotional , it was heartfelt and genuine ! Thank you for being transparent and inspiring!
Bernie thank you for sharing your story and reminding us that we don’t have to struggle in silence and that we can break the patterns from our childhood. Your comedy show was fantastic!
Show was great! Pulled on the heart strings as well.
Pleasure hearing from you, listening to your story and your growth. Your brother is lucky to have you! Best wishes in your future!
Thank you for coming out to our special place on earth (Kirtland AFB / Albuquerque, NM) the other desert east of Vegas. Loved the stories and happy you do not blame yourself as a victim. I find many of us have similar life events with stories of making bad decisions at some time in our past lives. Makes me wonder how different my life would have been if I had made different choices. Again, thank you for coming out to Kirtland….
Great show Bernie, you killed! Great way to show how to break the cycle. Also your family showcase and your mother’s resilience should be part of the main show! Loved seeing your family after hearing so much about them.
Thank you for being here and sharing your experience through comedy. I can’t imagine how hard it was to be able to get to the point.
Having had close friends go through similar things. It is to say the least an eye opener. I really hope your experience and words reach out many people. Again, thank you!
Thank you for the laughs and sharing your story. Lived seeing your family after the show.
Thank you so much for visiting us! You are a true inspiration to us all. I loved seeing the photos of your beautiful family.
Bernie delivered such a heartfelt show. Some of the jokes were hilarious, and some of the audience members even more so :D. It was more than I expected, and I hope he makes the rounds to all the bases that will let him through the gate.
Sir, thank you. Your messages were inspirational, and I appreciated the messages that you passed to us without the vulgarity. Training like yours has a powerful impact to each of our lives in different ways. You were truly appreciated today!
Thank you for sharing a piece your life with us!
I loved your show today Bernie! I was in the Dental Group, sitting next to the isle-(on my right). When you said something about 1/3 of American’s being ugly, and then to look to your LEFT, I made sure to not look anywhere! And guess which direction my fellow friend and wingman (on my left) looked? . . . She looked RIGHT.. right at ME! LOL. Then she took one of my tissues cause you killed us so hard! 😂😂😂
I was there it was a great show! Would love to see you come back
Thank you for entertaining us and pulling at our hearts strings

It was a pleasure to work with you and Melissa. You bring a true gift to the world by sharing your personal story and journey throught this chaotic, strange and wonderful world.

Appreciate you Bernie for visiting Kirtland. Thank-You and hope all is well as you travel from one military location to another. A fine example of patriotism and sharing good words of wisdom…ingrained with comedy. As a Retired 30 Year Veteran, it was one of the best presentations I have seen when it comes to the wellness (mental, physical, spiritual) of our troops. Well Done!
Thank you Bernie for the greatest Comedy show on Earth.
I never laughed and Cried at the same time, and I did so many times during the Amazing Comedy and a truly Important Lesson to Learn Show
