— Beth Bouchard, Bucknell University

Acts like Larry make my job even more enjoyable because I get to enjoy the show without worry/hesitation.”

“Honestly, Paul [Ramsay] is one of the coolest people I’ve ever met and he killed it last night. I couldn’t believe how much fun the students had!

Program Council usually keeps hypnotists on rotation for each year, but this is the first time I’ve ever heard them talking about bringing someone back for a consecutive year. EXCELLENT program!”

We could not have asked for a better addition to our event than Brian!”

— Mat Greer, Temple University

“Brian Ledbetter’s performance for SpikeNites at Gonzaga University was absolutely mind-blowing!
