"When I booked Justin Berkman to appear at Towson University, I only knew that I was getting a great deal: a comedian at a low cost. If I had known how hilarious Justin was going to be or how engaged the audience would be ahead of time, I gladly would have paid double what I had. Justin lit up the room with his energy, unique style of comedy and personality. He included everyone in his act and we all loved his show. His act aside, Justin could not have been more courteous, friendly or professional. Although I no longer hold my position on my campus activities board, I would have absolutely no qualms about recommending Justin for my school or anyone's school."
-Brian Sackett, Former Comedy Chair at Towson University
"Justin Berkman is the funniest comedian I have seen. I couldn't stop laughing; in fact, I laughed so hard that I cried. His jokes are hilarious, and it's awesome that he incorporates so much crowd participation. I can't wait to see him perform again."
-Cicely Kaul, Lake Superior State University
"Justin Berkman came to our campus and had us in stitches with his outlandish and bold comedy. He was not only hilarious but a pleasure to work with, showing himself to be a very professional and experienced entertainer. I would strongly suggest him to any campus looking for a night of laughter and fun."
-Steve Walano, President of Campus Entertainment at St. Lawrence University
"His jokes were HILARIOUS and his persona really allows for multitudes of people to connect with him on and off the stage! I would recommend him to a variety of campuses and venues throughout the entertainment industry."
-David Crago, Hiram College
"Justin came to Trine University in a very small part of Indiana. As there is little to do here, we packed the house and sat, waiting for an entertaining evening. I cannot tell you how unbelievable the show was. We came for a way to pass the time, and had such a great night that we STILL talk about it. He rocked the house and truly was hilarious. Justin doesn't just tell jokes, he talks about life but puts his spin on it to make us all laugh. It's a small thing to make someone laugh, but Justin does it well and performs like a pro! We'd have him back in a flash! Thanks Justin!!"
-Sara Kies, Trine University
"Justin is an all around riot. He is bar none the funniest comedian ever to grace Cal State Monterey Bay."
-Kyle Haggmark, Cal-State Monterey Bay
"Well I thought Justin was just fabulous! It's hard to find a comedian these days that's hilarious and accepting of diversity. Most of the time people rely on stereotypes to get a laugh, but you've gotta be damn clever and naturally funny to do what Justin does."
-Jessica Rubinstein, University of New Hampshire
"Justin will make you laugh out loud; my face was wet because I was crying from laughter!"
-Samira Setareh, UCLA
"I loved how he interacted and chose people out in the crowd who stood out to him. I also loved his attitude and presence on stage. He seems so relaxed and he makes it look so easy to make us laugh so hard we cry and we gasp for breath! Definitely he has a great personality, and he is willing to ham it up for pictures after the show. One of the most friendly in-real-life comedians I have ever met.
For being a small university, we sometimes get disrespected and teased by comedians. He didn't do that at all. I really hope he comes out this way again before I graduate!"
-DeeJay Jaeger, Western Oregon University
"I organized a comedy night for my fraternity, and Justin came out and headlined. He blew us all away with his energy and enthusiasm. He was able to improvise and play with the crowd in the way only an experienced professional can. Honestly, his online videos, though funny, don't do him justice, you gotta be there and experience the show!"
-Daniel Storrow, UC Davis
"I definitely had a great time. Justin interacted with the crowd very well and had me in tears at points. Even better was the interaction with the crowd after the show and he seemed genuinely interested in everyone. I would definitely go see him again."
-Charlie Ryczek, Hofstra University (attended Manhattanville College show)
"I first met Justin at the Jewlicious Festival. I was introduced to a number of comedians at Jewlicious, but my friends and I were laughing consistently the entire time Justin was on the stage. His jokes were very relatable. Having made such an impression on me, I then invited Justin to come to Sonoma State University and perform for us. We had an amazing turn out, and the entire crowd was sucked into the Justin trance; Justin had everyone laughing. One quality which Justin exudes, which makes him so relatable, is his ability to use his audience. I've noticed that he does a great job at reading his audience and an even better job of using his audience in his show."
-Sarah Borenstein, Sonoma State University
"Justin has the ability to get a crowd involved in a manner that most comedians aren't able to. I hope everyone gets the opportunity to see Justin put his comedic talent to work."
-Josh R., University of South Dakota
"Justin Berkman is a real world comedian, his act is filled with current events, and he engages with the audience. He makes a point to get everyone laughing and participating in his show."
-Brittany Land, Cal State Monterey Bay
"I thought he was great, I know I sure got a great laugh from his performance. Even talking to him after the show was awesome. It's great to know that he enjoys talking to his fans when he gets the chance."
-Haley Carter, Lake Erie College
"Justin was a real treat to have here at Western. Not only was he freakin hilarious, but his interaction with the audience added to his performance. I was laughing from beginning to end."
-Jodi Santillie, Western Oregon University
"Justin Berkman is a very cool and approachable comedian. He personally relates to his audience no matter what size or demographic. When I saw him perform at Ursuline College, a small Catholic College with a population primarily consisting of women (98%), he entertained the entire crowd while staying aware of his environment".
-Stephanie Scharf, Baldwin-Wallace College (attended Ursuline College show)
