The Wilmore Report
"We had a great event with Larry Wilmore at the St. Louis Public Library. I cannot thank you enough for making sure this happened. Larry was incredible, a total pro who merged into our meet and greet like an old friend, followed by performing on stage for a solid hour. Of course, he got a standing ovation. The book signing was an incredible success as well with over 100 books sold and signed. That is impressive for anyone!!
"Beautiful! He was very generous, gracious, and respectful to the audience. We had healthy attendance; we were very happy and we'd love to have him back. No hitches. Thanks for all of your support!"
"Larry Wilmore was AWESOME. He did a presentation on Barack Obama’s first 300 days in office, a checklist off which he gave his thoughts on everything from how Obama is handling the healthcare crisis and foreign affairs, to sports he should not be photographed partaking in (bowling). He then gave Obama a grade for each one and get the audience’s input throughout (giving Obama an ultimate “A for effort” at the end). He kept the audience of 850 laughing nonstop for 40 minutes, and it was clear how much he was enjoying giving his presentation. From his work on The Daily Show, I was expecting him to be much drier and sarcastic in terms of humor, but he was laughing right along with the audience throughout his presentation and everyone loved that. His style is more stand-up comedy than straight speech. It was a very fun presentation (for a liberal crowd of course). The first thing I heard when sitting down at my table was “I can’t wait to hear this speaker!” and afterward, everyone was buzzing about Larry in the lobby. He signed books and was happy to do so. He’s an excellent choice for any fundraiser, big or small."
