“On behalf of NWR, thank you very much for contributing to a very fun and successful 2014 Holiday Celebration . Not only were you extremely funny, but your material was clean, your presentation was corporately respectful, and your professionalism was apparent at every turn. I would be happy to recommend you for additional functions whenever possible.”

“Recently we hosted a VIP “by invitation only” event and engaged three high profile Canadian comedians to provide the entertainment. The feedback from our guests regarding our overall our event was nothing short of spectacular. Although all of our entertainers were Top Notch, I had tears running down my face as I was listening & watching Jen perform … I don’t think that I will ever again think of child birth in the same way since Jen shared her experiences regarding her sister’s delivery. For anyone who wants to have a quiet & reserved event, DON’T hire Jen, as she will have your guests rolling on the floor laughing… we had a phenomenal event, and Jen Grant was indeed one of the primary reasons for our success”.
– Ian K. Race, VP Sales, Vision 2000 Travel Group
“Jennifer Grant was a fabulous addition to our Corporate Client event hosted in conjunction with the Global Business Travel Association Canada Conference. “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Conference” was the theme of our event. Jennifer was a true blast… as the finale act, she provided real-life reasons for us to laugh our faces off… her humour was appropriate for the audience … it was personal and it was hilarious! Jen was the perfect way to conclude our evening and kept us all laughing into the conference the following day!”
