Close to Home
"(John) was the hit of the conference. His presentation started out funny and kept getting funnier. As the conference’s closing speaker, John left the audience laughing hysterically and begging for more. We were sorry when it ended. Like his cartoon “Close to Home,” John McPherson puts a very unique spin on everyday occurrences. His humor is intelligent and suitable for any audience. I could not recommend John McPherson more highly."
