“We LOVED T Murph! He was great on stage and the students and I really liked working with him before and after the event. There are often difficulties getting to Potsdam and this time was no exception. He was able to make it part of his act which was really funny. Thanks for checking back. I’m sure we’ll be working together in the future.”

“If you watch any comedian’s late-night set, regardless of the show, you’ll hear some medium laughs and a lot of (likely cued) applause breaks. Toward the end, [Joe] Pera gets both the loud pop laughs and the sort between-joke rolling laughter you’d see at a real comedy show. And the laughs are truly deserved.”

— Jesse David Fox, Vulture.com

“This is the audio-visual equivalent of a glass of warm milk. Jokes aside, Joe Pera Talks You To Sleep might actually make good on its title promise.” (On Joe Pera’s Adult Swim special Joe Pera Talks You To Sleep).

“In planning a Retreat for medical professionals in recovery, we came across a YouTube video of Andy Gold. When we stopped laughing he was hired. Andy not only tailored his performance to be specific to the group, he also humbled himself to spend time with everyone in an AA meeting and overall fellowship. He was hysterically funny sharing personal experiences and life situations! Everyone loved him with a request to even have him return! He is worth his weight in gold and ended up being an inspiration to those who attended. If you are looking for a funny comedian who is real, he’s your guy. “

“The entire audience was laughing and he was too – it’s refreshing to see a performer still having fun on stage doing what they love. I was at NACA this past year, where we first saw T-Murph, and I’m glad we ended up bringing him to our campus. He interacted with the guests during show, but he’s one of the few that stuck around after on his own accord. OU students formed a line to talk to him about his journey, take selfies, and simply just to say hi.”

— Oakland University

“He [T Murph] was excellent! Seriously, perfect for a Family Weekend show. It was the right level of humor for the crowd.

— Kevin M. Carey, Wittenberg University

— Blackburn College

I truly appreciate his show, professionalism and his ability to get the students engaged in what he was saying.”
