"We highly recommended Carol Leifer for all Jewish groups and especially for Jewish Federations. She is very talented and is very easy to work with."
"Everything went very well. Carol was very well received by our audience. She was also a delight to be with—a real professional who delivers the goods and doesn't demand extra attention. Our audience appreciates the opportunity we offer to ask questions of our speakers, and Carol entertained everyone with her answers. I would not hesitate to recommend her."
"Carol Leifer was GREAT! She was absolutely hilarious and a big hit with our hard-to-please group. We've received a lot of compliments and she was very gracious to all of our guests, especially at her book signing after her program which was also a great success. She could not have been nicer or more fun. I highly recommend Carol Leifer if you want a fun, CLEAN evening of humor from a woman who has blazed a trail in comedy."
"I want to thank Carol Leifer for her tremendous program at our Women Leaders Training Symposium. She is so gifted and funny - a perfect fit for our audience!"
"Carol isn't just a comedian, she's a rock star! Nobody gets an audience going like Carol Leifer. Carol has energetically appeared at many of the events I've planned for both The Human Rights Campaign and PFLAG over the last couple of years and she consistently not only brings down the house but also gets people to open their wallets! Book her and you are guaranteed to have a successful event."
"We doubled our turnout when we booked Carol Leifer! Our attendees are still talking about how funny and heartfelt her program was. On a scale of 1 to 100, she scored 1000! We are so happy that we got her."
"Carol was laugh-out-loud funny! And not only funny, but very real and warm. We wholeheartedly recommend her for any group - her speaking program is a HOMERUN. Our attendees have not stopped talking about her!"
"Carol Leifer was a wonderfully, funny guest speaker. The group seemed to enjoy her humor and stories. She spoke from her heart about the importance of women’s rights and our freedom of choice."
"Carol was amazing! So funny, witty and timely. We had donors from 35-85 years old who got her humor and laughed for a half-hour. With the crazy world we live in, everyone wanted to laugh, enjoy and just be happy...and that's exactly what Carol gave us. A piece of happiness and each guest left with a smile on their face."
"Fabulous! It was a perfect fit for our group – she pushed the envelope just far enough and we have had so much praise about the entire event which was lightened, brightened and enlightened with her humor!"
"Carol Leifer is, without a doubt, one of the funniest people on the planet! Not only that, but she is a genuinely nice lady who takes great pride in her work and presentation. Her stories about her own life and career and her general observations about life -- whether seen through a Jewish lens or not -- are hilarious and, often, extremely touching. Our program with her was delightful from beginning to end, and is one none of us will soon forget. Our only regret is that she can't stay in Atlanta and be our best friend!"
"Carol was an absolute joy! Her humor resonated with the crowd and she nailed every joke. She shared stories that made the audience laugh hysterically and brought back wonderful memories for all of us. A doll to work with! Class act all the way through."
"Carol, as they say, “killed it” last night. She was the perfect presenter for the opening event of our 4th annual Jewish Book Festival. Everyone in the crowd of 250 people loved her. There was laughter and belly laughs throughout Carol’s performance. She was also very gracious during the Q&A session and book signing. The Federation leadership and staff, as well as the book festival committee and chairs, could not have been more thrilled or happier with how the evening went, thanks to Carol’s professionalism, style, delivery and overall personality."
“Carol was outstanding. Her ability to engage with students, faculty, staff and community members was great. Carol wove her personal story with humor and reflection. She was easy to work with and very approachable.”
