for the Great Holtzie
A little positive feedback
from fans of The Great Holtzie
The Great Holtzie was just what the doctor ordered for the kids
at Camp Get-A-Well-A this summer! Holtzie’s performance made a
room filled with sick and seriously ill kids erupt with laughter and
excitement. Camp Get-A-Well-A is held in a children’s hospital so
when the laughter got too loud, we had to shut the doors to the
playroom! In particular, one very sick little girl who had been
confined to the hospital for months on end was laughing hysterically,
interacting and even heckling Holtzie - all in good fun!
They say laughter is the best medicine, that proved to be true on the
day The Great Holtzie came to Camp Get-A-Well-A!

will definitely be having the Great Holtzie come back to our camp next
summer! We have had many acts come through the doors of St. Peter's
Summer Camp, but the Great Holtzie kept every child engaged and
laughing! Not only did the first graders enjoy the show, but the 3 year
olds could also appreciate his jokes. My staff was impressed with his
ability to cross all age groups. The Great Holtzie was able to reach
every age and personality present at our camp. I have never seen an
entertainer quite like him before. He is truly a unique find!"

The Great Holtzie is edgy and funny. He's retained a part of his
childhood that we can all recognize as part of our own. To my
knowledge, he's the first stand up comedian for kids and families.

Holtzie delivered a phenomenal performance at the birthday party of our
6-year-old twins. He had 45 children eating out of the palm of his hand
for an hour! At the end, one child said, "I wish it would last for 5
hours!" Our boys said that it was the "silliest, funniest show" they
had ever seen. Since the party, we have received numerous calls from
other parents who reported that their child had the "best time" at the
party because of the Great Holtzie's jokes, silly-ness, and tricks.
Also, the "grown-ups" who stayed during the party also loved the show;
the Great Holtzie sneaks in just enough material for the parents too.
We highly recommend him for various audiences, and hope to see him
again very soon! Maybe one day, he will be on TV. so we can tune in and
see him daily.

had The Great Holtzie entertain our preschool camp recently. What a
find! He kept the children and staff engaged and entertained for the
whole time. We have had other programs this summer, and our little kids
usually leave half way through - but not with The Great Holtzie. He was
amazing. Parents asked me about it the next day, which just tells you
that the children were still talking about him when they got home! I
highly recommend The Great Holtzie for any and all events. For the very
young to the very old. He is hilarious! The staff wants to make sure we
have him back during the school year."

two boys were at the Lower Providence library this week and just loved
the Great Holtzie's act! My three-year-olds favorite part was when he
ate the worms, and my five-year-old loved his "cowboy hat" and bald
jokes! I came with my boys, my mother, and a woman my mother takes care
of who is mentally retarded and also has cerebral palsy. She had so
much fun! She was really getting the jokes. It can be very hard to
break through to her and communicate as she cannot speak, and boy did
The Great Holtzie get through to her! It was a really awesome thing to
see her clapping, laughing, and squealing. It was such a fun night."
Great Holtzie performed at my son's birthday today. Jack, on the way
upstairs said, "I just had the BEST time!" and Noah is still walking
around talking about worms and baldness. The other kids and the adults
loved it too. Holtzie jokingly said he has no artistic talent, but I
think what The Great Holtzie does is definitely art and he is very,
very talented. I've never seen my kids laugh that hard and for that
long! Thanks again SO much to The Great Holtzie for making Jack's
birthday extra special.
Great Holtzie brought a level of laughter and humor to our annual
XPoNential Music Festival this summer on the Camden Waterfront! His
attention and focus to the kids he is performing with, mixed with his
winks and nods to the adults nearby, is a perfect oasis in a sea of
overzealous clowns and crusty magicians - a breath of fresh air for any

the first to admit that I've put a whole lot of time and energy into
planning a total of 14 birthday parties for our two daughters. We've
had some real hits, but even our best party pales in comparison to what
The Great Holtzie delivered to our latest "Comedy Club" birthday event.
I have never seen kids laugh so hard and for so long. It was a real
treat to see the three-year-olds cracking up right along with the
six-year-olds, the 12-year-olds, and even the parents. I would book The
Great Holtzie again in a heartbeat!"
Thanks so much
for an amazing show last Saturday. My kids have your whole show
memorized and can’t stop reciting it. It’s great! Well, except in
Target this morning when my Sam was calling people “knucklehead” and
“baldie!” Thanks again!
Great Holtzie performed this December at The Morris Arboretum's Annual
Premier Member's Holiday Garden Railway Evening. The event was a great
success with a record-breaking 600 members registered to see the
railway and The Great Holtzie's fabulous show. He kept the packed room
of children, parents, and staff laughing and smiling. He made our event
even more magical! My colleagues and I were still laughing on Monday

cannot thank The Great Holtzie enough for participating in our Kidzfest
2007 event – he was a huge hit! With a crowd over 1,000 people present,
I could still hear the kids and parents laughing from across the field.
Several of my friends that had seen his performance stopped me and said
their children wanted to know when he was coming back on - he was
hysterical! The Great Holtzie helped us in successfully raising over
$15,000 for the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's fight against
children's cancer, heart disease, and premature birth. I am eternally
Great Holtzie performed for a large group at a neighborhood block party
this past weekend. The children loved him. He is a refreshing
alternative to the traditional entertainers for children. He makes
children comfortable, connects with them at their level, and - best of
all - makes them laugh. I highly recommend him."
