I worked at The East Side Comedy Club for 2 years. Saw them all, including Jim Carrey, Ray Romano, Kevin James, etc. The ONLY comedian I ever stayed to watch the show TWICE in one night was Paul's. His interaction with the audience made for a totally different show....Have seen him many times since and sent a lot of my friends to see him as well. And they all say he is the best they have seen. On my bucket list, singing "I Go To Extremes" with Paul at the end of a show is #7.

We hired Paul for a private holiday party last weekend with family & friends. My wife and I saw Paul do a half hour set at the Borgata in Atlantic City back in August and immediately were drawn to his amazing talent. I emailed him to see if he were available the night of our annual party, and much to our pleasant surprise, he was. We hired him and were super excited for the night to come. Paul came to our home two weeks before the party to check out our family room at our request which was going above & beyond. The day of our party where Paul was set to perform at around 9:00pm, he showed up at our home at 3:30pm, to set up and run sound checks. He sung a few songs for me & my wife, and mingled in as our guests arrived a few hours later. It was now showtime and we were so proud to know the pleasant treat our families and friends were in for. The "one man comedy tornado" did not disappoint. He interacted with every single guest and to his brilliance, remembers the names, and occupation (if indeed there was one) of every last person. Paul combined his comedy along with singing songs for over 2 hours of non stop entertainment. Our friends & family were amazed at his brilliance. It's easy to say that he won our family room over. We would have sat there for another 2 hours if Paul wanted to continue. After his set, he stayed and spoke to us all, like a true friend. He was not looking to perform and leave. If anyone of you is thinking about having a private affair or just to get together with a few friends for a night out, don't hesitate to hire or visit a local comedy club to see this multi-talented man perform his magic. Our cheeks hurt so much from laughing. Paul created memories that will last a lifetime for our family & friends. Both a professional and a friend came through with Paul. We want to thank him again & again for the special night we will soon never forget. Thanks Paul Venier...

You are such a talented performer. Your comedy is over the top and by the time Dar and I left at the end of the evening my jaws hurt from laughing! But you are so much more than comedy. You are a talented musician and an incredible friend! It was soo good to see you and wish you were in Baltimore more often.. It was also nice to have so many Orioles alumni there with Ross and Bird Grimsley, Judy and RV Billy Ramsey, Doc Gordon and his nephew, Calvin Alt, Tim Trembly. The entire night was so incredible. The way you kept going around the room with the grocery guy, the Dempsey manager, Joann the retired woman, Joey, John/Chris, Homeland Security, the two Cindy's, Kristen, and especially Grant and Leia. Poor Grant will have that song embedded in his persona the rest of his life.

My wife and I went to a comedy show with a few friends the other night without knowing who was on the bill, as we do from time to time. We never heard of you or saw you before so we didn't know what to expect, plus there weren't many people at the show due to bad weather. Well, let me just say what we experienced was nothing less than spectacular!! A 2 hour show in which we laughed so hard continuously...so much that I hurt today. The small amount of people who attended didn't stop you from giving us everything that you had and it was so appreciated...most comics would have just gone through the motions but you didn't! We are so glad that we went and can't wait to see you again and bring all of our friends to experence 'The Comedy Tornado' for themselves. THANK YOU!!!

As always, you are a one of a kind great performer. You have the ability to keep people laughing for as long as your show lasts. Never get tired of seeing you and never get tired of laughing from start to finish. When you sing 'You Got It', it is very appreciated by myself and Irene. After 45 years of being married and singing the words to Irene, 'Anything you want, You got it', always puts a smile on Irene's face. Thanks to you, 1 point for me. As many times as we have seen you we still never stop laughing. The sound of the laughter from all the people all night long proves my point. You are so appreciated and respected for the work you do. You really are a class A act. Thank you for the smiles and laughter you put in our lives.

I left during the last song. Had to work Monday and was concerned about driving. Imagine - 30 years ago, that was not even a consideration! ha ha I'm sure I would have enjoyed the Q & A session. I ordered a DVD - not sure if they filmed the Q & A, but just seeing the performance again makes me excited for it's arrival. Paul - Just so moved by you as a person. I'm nothing to you but a superfan of Salty Dog & your solo career, yet everytime I see you, you make me feel like a million bucks and I thank you for that.

My friend Jim and I saw you this past Friday night at Sully's Comedy Cellar in Carney, MD. I've seen you several other times over the years and have laughed myself silly each time. One really nice thing about your shows is that everyone gets to know everyone else through the way you include them in the act. So when we were leaving, I was able to say, "Hey, you're Don (Europe/Asia) and Claudette! I'm the lunch lady!" and we were able to stand around and talk about the show. I also thought the Q&A at the end of the show was a blast, and it was great getting to know more about you. Thanks for the laughs!!

This is too damned far over due. Many years ago (somewhere in the dark ages) I was involved with the Boy Scouts (Morris County Council) and you performed for a dinner we had at a restaurant. I will say without a question you presented what had to be the number one evening of laughter I have ever experienced. Your hanging around the bar and identifying the people by table set my table into laughter like I had not heard before. These are usually reserved people. So now, many years after and having spent entertaining evenings in Vegas, in cabarets, and on cruise ships, nothing compared to that evening of laughter with you. Paul, I wish you only the best and continued successes. Laughter, particularly today, is difficult to come by, but the memory of that evening still brings smiles to my face!!

I took my girl friend to your show at HoJo's on Friday night. I saw you once before about 10 years ago and have been wanting to get back and she loves to see comedy. You did not disappoint. We have been recalling different things you did and laughing all day. We are looking to take her step mother to your show in Keyport, she will love it. You are so quick and original that it's amazing and genius to watch you work the room. Life is a challenge and we both work in the health care field and we see too much tragedy...Thanks for making us laugh and letting us escape for a few hours! You need to be on TV!! Thanks again for a great night!

Saw your show last night at Luna Rosa in Seaside Heights for the first time in 20 years. I first saw you at Shooters in Holmdel during the 80's. You are still funny and lightning quick. I had a great time with my girlfriends, I never laughed so hard. And a three hour show, you were great. That poor guy Carl, Seal and Jimmy were good sports, but you ripped them mercilessly...(not a complaint)...just funny. Highly recommend for a great nite out.

My wife and I watched you in action at the Emerald Fundraiser Show this past weekend and she was very much afraid to get up and go to the ladies room during your act. For both not wanting to miss anything and the other, not to be the focal point of having to go. I laughed hard with and at her for that (Did I say that out loud?)…I am still trying to find that little “dittie” you played all through the show so I can play it to have a few laughs again. Yet there is no Sacred cow at your show, as all were the focal point of the laughter that you brought to the stage. What amazes me the most is that you spoke with at least 40 or more people during your act and were able to go and pick one out and remember their name and occupation. “I can’t remember what the hell I did yesterday.” So anyone else reading this should be aware that once Paul starts his routine, you better be ready for a 2+ hours of nonstop bombarding of jokes and music. He never hit the same spot twice…What a Very Talented musician and comedian. We hope to see your show again!!

It was great to see you at the Barnegat Firehouse on the 7th of February. I only wish the rest of the fire fighter's that were there, who never saw you before, could have seen the show. Unfortunately, as you know, we had to run out for an emergency call we got at the beginning of your show. The few that stayed behind, that are on the injured list, loved you and said they never laughed so hard. You always have a great show, but wished my daughter and her boyfriend, could have seen the entire show also. We had a show of our own to do, so to speak. Mike and I have checked the next time that you are in the area. We are going to have those who missed out on that show, come to the next show with us. You always have us laughing, and put on a great show every time we get to see you. Take care and See you soon!

Afterwards he stayed and played some music and offered to stay as long as folks wanted to dance.

I just wanted to Thank you for an awesome time! Your show was great. Everyone really enjoyed themselves. Bobby's 50th was better than his 40th. I never did get the chance to tell about that one. To get him to his 40th party he thought he was the entertainment at a children's party. So he shows up at his own party dressed as a clown. Yep, it was funny, complete with red nose and giant shoes!!! But, I must say this time you ruled!!! I was getting calls the next day from guests telling me what a great time they had, and it was all because of you. And Thank you for giving Bobby your DVD. My family is in love with you (lol).

I laugh from the moment I see you and don't stop for a long time. I'm still laughing in the car, and before I fall asleep I think of you and roar. What a gift! I don't think one person walks out without a big smile. You got my brother good, and he enjoyed himself totally. Joy gave me thumbs up and thanked me for bringing them. Little Elvis is hysterical...I think he's new to the show, although I did see you and Elvis on youtube, but not in person. I'm laughing right now, just thinking of your head in the split of the curtain... lolol. I told Karen she missed your best show because you gave more than the 200% you said you give...you gave it ALL. Thank you so much for being you and for sharing your gift of laughter with us all.

Paul Venier was fantastic at our corporate party for Long Term Pharmacy Solutions. My guests were hysterical all night, into the next day at work. He was well prepared but not rehearsed.

Thank you for the wonderful show you did for us Saturday night. From the time we said hello to the time we said goodbye, you never failed to entertain. You are so talented and hilarious with a genuine personality and amazing memory. Everyone at our table enjoyed your company and your stories during dinner. So many people commented to me how much they enjoyed your show, even the older single women that I was afraid might be slightly offended. Instead they told me that you were so funny and were glad they came. I particularly enjoyed the Roy Orbison song you sang. You really have a terrific voice. There's no end to your talents!

In fact, my office is still playing with Brad's head and we play your theme song every time the poor guy passes through the office, and my boss keeps telling Melissa to speak up.

Saw Paul Venier last Saturday night, November 25, in Medford, NY. This is the second time that I have seen Paul and I can truly say that I am a big time fan of his. The show was fantastic. He has to be the funniest man I have ever seen. My name is Larry, "Larry's Insurance", which he remembered from the last time I saw him. Paul gives so much of himself at each show. Gives 100% of himself. The sign of a very funny man is when people can be talking about how funny he was. My wife and I are still talking about how funny Paul was from the August 2006 show. A great night of entertainment.

My friends & I met Paul when we discovered the Salty Dog band back in the late 70's. They were by far, the best band in the local club circuit and we instantly became huge fans. We saw them every chance we could. We met Paul during this time and were overcome by his friendliness and his ability to remember our names and always make us feel welcome. We were extremely saddened by the band breakup, but were instantly excited when discovering Paul performing at the Jersey Shore. We saw him countless times and never tired of spending the evening singing along with him & the crowd. I even exposed my Mom to Pauls shows and he was classy enough to make her feel special on the nights she attended. I was once again delighted to see Paul surface on the comedy circuit. I have seen his show every chance I could and each time I have left feeling like I have just had the pleasure of watching a very talented performer. Everyone I have encouraged to go with me has felt the same. Paul deserves nothing but great success because he is that talented but more importantly he is that good of a person. Thank you Paul for years of entertainment and for welcoming me, my friends and most of all my family whenever we have attended your shows.

I wanted to express just how enjoyable our recent foray "into the wild and crazy world and mind of Paul Venier" was to both me and my friends at a recent comedy show at the Gateway Comedy Club in Medford, Long Island, NY. We were the group of six that included the ebay lady, the paralegal (me), the administrative assistant, the newspaper route boy (who by the way is a VP at Norton Publishing), the production manager (the mumbler - my husband), and the insurance guy a/k/a Larry's insurance. If I wore a hat, I'd gladly take my hat off to you, Mr. Venier. You are one amazing comedian and entertainer! I have to admit that not one of us had ever heard of you before that night. We were out for the evening to celebrate my husband's birthday and thought going to a comedy club would be good for a few laughs. Well, over the years, our little group has been to many comedy clubs, but never in our collective lives have we ever experienced such a non-stop, roller-coaster ride of comedy and skits as you offer to your audiences. You had us in tears with laughter and it is now weeks later and we are still talking about you. Our little group has already started spreading the word to all of our friends and we can't wait to see you again. Again, thank you so much for our recent fun-filled evening of laughs and comedy. You are truly one of a kind. You didn't just make our day, you made our month.

Paul, we enjoyed your show again Friday Night. We first saw you at Alpha Fire House a couple years ago then just this past spring. When we saw you were coming to Flynn's for the Lehigh Valley Cats Fundraiser, we got tickets and came again. I felt bad for you in all that heat. I helped sweat for you. I had called Adrian for tickets and he said you must be a fan of Paul's, I said absolutely. Adrian said isn't he crazy? I said no, he is very talented. We've been to many comedy nights in the area and have been very disappointed when the comics think that by being filthy, they are funny. You are the most versatile performer and we compare you all the time to the others, none compare. Keep up the good work of making people forget whatever problems they have going on in their lives and giving it up to laugher.

There were alot of people who were there to support the "Solve the Puzzle" organization, but there was also a good amount of people who were there because their child is affected with some form of autism. Well, on this night you made everyone forget their worries for awhile with your laughter and that meant alot to them.

I was going to write you today to let you know how GREAT Paul made our Christmas Party. He was EXCELLENT! Yesterday morning we didn't accomplish a thing at work as we were all reminiscing over the night before. Spouses who found company parties to be boring were commenting how this was the best company party they ever attended, all due to Paul Venier. He has a great talent in making people laugh and we all really enjoyed his performance.

Well it is Turkey Day and after enjoying a nice turkey, the family sat around watching some DVD's together. When the youngsters all decided it was time to go out and sleigh ride, the adults decided it was time to pop in the Paul Venier VHS video that my husband purchased last weekend during a show of Paul's in Gordon, PA. Mr. Venier was absolutely the best comedian that I have had the pleasure to see thus far and I've laid eyes on quite a few. The group of us that were attending this particular performance together also were able to find out what a real all-around good guy Paul Venier was after the show. Thanks for the good time last weekend & the holiday laughs today!

I have never enjoyed a comedian so much in all my life as I have you. You were amazing, talented, quick-witted, and so incredibly funny. Your uncanny ability to remember names and work a crowd was unbelievable! Not once did I stop laughing through your entire show! I have been telling people all about you since the night I saw you at Ft. Indiantown Gap, PA on Nov.4th.

We had such a good time at your show, Saturday, Oct. 22 at "Catch A Rising Star" in Resorts in AC. I haven't laughed that hard at a comic since I saw Robin Williams! You have a great comedic sense of timing & an incredibly fast mind, not to mention you are a very talented musician. I have to come see you again so I can hear what I was laughing through. I'll always remember that night when I hear "the wheels on the bus". Thanks for a memorable night.

I had heard the glowing reports about you for many years, mostly from neighbors and friends in and around Jackson, NJ who'd attended your shows at Scooters, off of Rt. 9 in Howell; but until Saturday, Oct 22 at Resorts in Atlantic City I hadn't the pleasure of catching your act "first-hand" (funny, considering the way you picked on me all night). My wife, Jeanette, and I thought you'd like to know that the hour you performed was by far the most entertaining time we have spent in a long while. You are indeed a talented and versatile entertainer, and obviously a serious musician to boot, so though it took us a very long time to finally catch your act, Jeanette and I can't wait to attend another of your shows and witness what will surely be a repeat spectacular performance!

I just wanted to tell you how funny you where at the State Theater for Target Select. That was honestly the most fun I ever had at a comedy show. You were quick with your lines and made it fun for everyone! So many people came up to me after the show and asked me if I was a plant! They loved the bit I did with my Camera on stage. Thanks for the Laughs! The video was also very funny too! Best of Luck PAUL!!!

I saw your act last night at the Comfort Inn in Medford. I just want to thank you for a great time, I said you were a genius and I mean it, your show is unique because of the way you interact with the crowd, that requires quick thinking and a real serious talent, as opposed to getting up and doing an almost totally scripted act as many do (don’t get me wrong I have seen shows like that and laughed till I cried, it’s just not the same level of skill). I was seriously impressed by your act, thank you for a great show.

WOW is all I really have to say. I havent laughed so hard in my life. You kinged me as "the film kid", my mom as "the stuttering pill counter" and my dad as "the man with horrible public relations". The way you involve your audience is brilliant. Any comedian can sit at home and write jokes but the way you come up with them on the spot is really amazing. Just wanted to let you know that I loved the show you just did in Jackson NJ and I would love to go and see you again.

Without gettin' too sappy, last Friday was certainly one of my favorite nights of all time. It was a supreme pleasure to finally work with a man who I have seen many many times. And not only that, I have seen him work a crowd like no other in all of comedy. You really have a special, unique gift of giving a lot of laughs and joy to a crowd, and I hope you never give that up, even for music. It was just such a thrill and joy to not only watch you again work your magic, but also to be a part of the show. I can't wait to bring my parents and friends to a show that we do together. You have a such a great presence on stage, and no matter what you say, it's almost a sacred gift to be made fun of by you. I'm truly honored to have finally had that chance with you on Friday. I will most likely still come to watch you here and there. Certainly, I'd rather work with you, but either way, it'll be a joy.

Robin Williams, Howie Mandell and Billy Joel all wrapped into one! Paul Venier is definitely all three combined and more. I now know why they call him 'THE ONE MAN COMEDY TORNADO'....... We saw him at The IREM Temple Country Club in Dallas, PA and he did a solid two hour music and comedy show with enough energy to light the whole Pocono Region. I never laughed until I cried like that ever before. My sides and face still hurt. Please perform here again real soon.

Thank God for the internet. I've been telling people about Paul Venier for the last 15 years. Nobody believed me when I would tell them that there is a guy called Paul Venier and he's the funniest man on the planet. I never see Paul's name listed on the Long Island circuit, so I couldn't get people to see him. The first time I saw him, I laughed so hard that I fell out of my chair and onto the stage. Luckily for me, I got back on my seat before Paul turned around to see it. I've never seen a live act that comes close to it. I see that there is a Nov. date for Medford, Long Island. I just e-mailed about 25 people. Their loss, if they don't come.

I wanted to tell you that we had a great time Saturday night at the Havre de Grace comedy show. It's amazing to me how much fun you seem to be having up there. This is the second year we have come to see you. One of the best things about it too is you make a point to say "HI" to everybody before and after the show. I had the chance to speak with your opening act as well, Chris Williamson, he is great. He was great last year too. He was in the diner afterwards and made a point to chat with us for a few minutes before he left, it's nice to see that you surround yourself with quality people. Hoping to see you guys again in the near future.

I was sitting a row behind Jeff (the doorknocker salesman) and Wendy (the music teacher). Last time we saw you on Long Island was for my birthday in November. As soon as we found out you were appearing in NJ we decided to make the trip from Long Island. So this makes three times that I have seen your comedy act and each and every time I couldn't stop laughing. Your combined quick wit and music ability are amazing. By the way your CD is great. Thanks again for making us all laugh until our sides hurt. Looking forward to number 4.

I was introduced to a "Comedy Club" for the first time last night, Saturday, November 30. I was told by my friend, Chris, that I would enjoy the show. But I had no idea what to expect. I have seen comedy acts on the tv, but Paul Venier's was so different from anything I had seen before. Paul's memory, quick wit, and ability to interact with the audience left me totally amazed and laughing until my sides hurt. If you can catch his show...please do, you will not regret it.

Message

I just saw Paul here on Long Island. It was the first time I was able to catch his act in about 5 years, and reminded me of why comedy was so popular back in the 80's and 90's. You can see any other comedian, and once you've seen his act once, there's not much left to look forward to. With Paul, you can see his show twice in one evening, and get a totally different show the second time around. No one else in comedy has the ability to interact and include his audience in his act like Paul Venier. You never know what you're going to get, but you can be assured of this...you'll laugh, be entertained, and be amazed at the way Paul combines his world-class musical ability, with his sharp wit, to create the most satisfying comedy performance you'll ever see. On the downside???? Only time can limit the amount of fun you'll have at a Paul Venier Show.

My husband tells everyone about "the funniest comedian he's ever seen" and how he was a part of the show. Ever since then, my husband and I have been waiting until you came back into the area, so that we could see your show again. I am so happy to tell you that we are coming to Atlantic City on Friday, April 13th, just to see your show at the Comedy Stop. This time, we are bringing friends with us, so they too, can enjoy your outstanding and hilarious act.

MOMMYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!! I'm still laughing out loud every time I think of it! My husband and I saw your show last night at Tracys Comedy Club in Carney, Maryland and we haven't laughed out loud that much in ages. Not only are you a gifted comedian, but when you sang Nights in White Satin we were blown away. Please come back to our part of town SOON!!

I had the extreme pleasure of enjoying your show at the Ramada Comedy Night (2/9/01)in Allentown, PA. I have attended many shows at that venue, some great, but I have never laughed with such intensity for such a sustained period of time. My wife literally wet her pants.(no bull) Your unique act is one that I will be sure to go out of my way to see again. I will be monitoring your bookings for just that opportunity. Kudos & Keep Rockin'!

Drove 100 miles today to see Paul for the sixth time, and it was well worth it. Paul is the one act I know that can make a room of 200 people feel like they are in a small and intimate atmosphere!

This is Shelley from the 10:45pm show at Rascals on Friday 12/15. I just wanted to tell you how much we loved your show. Howard is still laughing. Our kids are in from school & when I was telling them about how you dragged their father onto the stage & kept playing the "debonair music" whenever you said his name & they were hysterical- the best part was that I was checking your website at the same time & there was that very music so we can hear it whenever we want. We look forward to seeing you again & I hope you remember us when you see us in the audience. By the way, your tape is as funny as the live show we saw.

We saw your 12/16 Saturday show at Rascals for the first time. You are AWESOME! I was the "stay at home mom" you talked to (front stage seats) and you said "you're not a stay at mom home tonight!" and did the "MOMMY!!" thing. I never laughed soooo hard. We also bought one of your videos that night and Guy and I just watched it and laughed as hard as the first time we saw you Saturday!! You're a cutie...keep up the good work...You should set up a chat session once a month so we can talk to you personally!

Seeing Paul this week was great fun! My family thinks he is the best act out there. They had a blast. My father told me the show has been in his head all day and he already told a bunch of people about Paul. My father also told me that there are a million acts he's seen and nobody even comes close to The Tornado. Take care!

My wife and I just got back from your show last night in Syracuse, NY( Saturday 12/9 8pm) - the 3rd we have seen in as many years- and we loved it! I swear, the last time I laughed that hard Paul, was when you were here last year! It seems that everything that I wanted to say has already been mentioned by your other fans on your website. Nonetheless, you put so much hard work and energy into each show that I get exhausted watching you! Yet, you are always easily approachable after every performance. I am sincerely glad that I got to catch you once again, but am sad that I have to wait another year to see you back in town. Oh well, looks like I'll have to get "back on the bus" until then!

I stumbled on your site and boy, did it bring back memories. I saw you about 8-9 years ago at La Salle University in Philadelphia. My college buddies and I never laughed so hard as we did when you performed. I remember the Viking Song fondly. I am so glad to see that you are still performing because I think you have great talent. I checked out your web site and had a good laugh -- especially the clip with Heaving on a Jet Plane.

Once again, I enjoyed working with you on Saturday at the Holland Township Fire Company. Brilliant doesnt even begin to describe you. I hope I get to work with you again soon. The next time I'll make sure my girlfriend wears her depends. I've never laughed harder.

What the hell Planet are you from? I never saw a show like that before! My wife and I just couldn't get over your memory. You remembered over 30 different peoples names, occupations and general information and constantly brought it back throughout your show. All I can say is....AMAZING! And your musical ability was simply Awesome! Keep up the fantastic job! UNFREAKINGBELIEVABLE!!

I was at your show Thursday night at Joey's Comedy Club in Livonia, MI. I just had to tell you that Michelle and I loved it!! You've got to have one of the best minds in comedy. Your head must hurt from having to think so fast on stage, GREAT JOB!

I just wanted to write and tell you again how much we appreciated your show Saturday night. Cindy and I were still laughing with our friends yesterday about "Mommy....." (we're parents) and some of your other routines. I realize that a firehall is not the most glamorous of venues, but that didn't stop you from being sensational. We have been to several of the shows there and you have probably ruined it for all the rest. I can't wait to watch your tape. I hope we can catch another of your shows real soon. You are truly a "Comedy Tornado". Thanks again.

My husband and I just wanted you to know how much you are respected. We were at the Autism Fundraiser last night and must say that your personality really emits on stage. You are very funny and believe me we parents of autistic children need that relief: but it goes much beyond that. I know it was a small crowd and we were a little concerned how you would react to that. The professional that you are as well as what appears to be a true caring person was evident to us all. It really didnt seem to bother you if there was 25 people or 200 and that is what won our respect. You are truly a funny man and that humor allows us to wake up fresh in a new day. Just a note to say thank you. May you be rewarded with health and happiness for your dedication.
