The Best Fundraiser Comedian

My favorite events to perform at are fundraising shows, as I love being part of something that helps others! When I do a charity event the message at the end of my presentation is about how much I’ve learned from my daughter. Maddie has a disability and she has taught me more about life than anyone else. I think this inspirational comedy is the reason I do more fundraisers than any comedian I know–because my show connects on so many levels, especially in the Midwest. I have been told by past clients that my show raises more money than any other, as the tone of my show inspires people to be more giving.
Here are just some of the reviews I’ve gotten from fundraisers.
Scott is Amazing. 5 Stars All the Way!  Scott Long put the finishing touches on a fantastic fundraising evening for Lemay Child and Family Center. His act was perfect for our audience! Everyone in attendance said it was our most entertaining fundraising event we have ever had. We raised over $32,000 for our early childhood education program!

Thank you Scott! Denise of St. Louis

Scott was a huge hit for our first fundraiser on Saturday night! We couldn’t have asked for a better event to get our fundraising started. Scott did a great job of interacting with the audience. We had a diverse group in attendance and his show was perfect fit for all – even the ministers in the audience! 🙂 This event was focused on fundraising for education and he incorporated touching stories from his own personal journey as a parent. One audience member stated “he about had you in tears from emotion, then at the edge of your seat laughing!” At the end of the night Scott donated a portion of his merchandise proceeds back to us – what a nice surprise!

Scott presented at our fundraising awards banquet and was very friendly and accommodating. His interaction and engagement with the crowd was spot on. In addition, Scott was open and willing to be flexible regarding our special event requests which ensured a great and memorable night. Scott is truly a class act!

Scott is a true class act and absolutely hilarious. His material is ahead of its time, relevant, and the manner of his presentation is humble, yet captivating.Molly Lang: Autism Coordinator–Noble Services
The AAF (American Advertising Federation) Louisville has an annual
fundraiser called Stand Up For Education, Comedy For A Cause. All of the
proceeds from the event benefit the AAF-Louisville Endowment Fund, which
provides scholarships to local college students who are pursuing careers
in advertising or marketing-related fields.
The featured comic this year was Scott Long, in the 5 years we have held
the event, Scott is the best comic that we have ever worked
with. The performance that Scott delivered was clean, non-political,
hilariously funny and flawless. Scott was extremely professional and very
easy to work with, he understood the purpose of our event and worked with
the AAF Louisville in every way possible to make sure that our goals were
met and exceeded.
In the “Derby City “we know thing or two about winners and make no doubt
about it, Scott Long is a true winner!

Thank you very much for your funny, honest, and inspirational show. It was funny and heartwarming. You Rock!  Diane Szewczyk-Smith: Development Director–Moka Foundation of Michigan

Scott was awesome and the response that we have had was so POSITIVE……..thanks for helping to make it a night that Fort Smith will be talking about for a long time.  You’ve raised the bar for next year’s fundraiser!  Theresa of the Fort Smith Art Museum (Arkansas)

 

Long’s one-man show mixes both material suited for one of his stand-up routines and rather intriguing anecdotes about what it’s like to be a father of an autistic child. He handles heavy subjects such as fertility problems, raising a child with special needs, and his own somewhat-troubled relationship with his father with an acute sense of humor, making it okay to laugh at situations that could otherwise make the audience uncomfortable. Long had the audience roaring for the majority of the show as delivered his jokes with the kind of honesty that can be mastered only by a man who has truly learned to sit back and take life as it comes. He spoke so fondly of his autistic daughter Maddie that one couldn’t help but want to meet the little girl. His stories of her ranged from the hilarious (she has difficulty pronouncing the letter “g,” which is problematic when your dog is named “Angus”) to the heartwarming (she judges people only by the way that they treat her, and if someone is particularly nice to her, she will talk about them endlessly for days). Long sprinkles photos of his kids throughout his set, and the final one, a photo of him and his three adorable children, laughing so hard that their eyes are closed, says more about his family than any joke could.

Anyone whose family has been touched by having a member with a disability surely knows that a sense of humor can be an important tool in maintaining balance and perspective. Scott Long brings you into his family’s world, and with humor lets you know that things can be alright. If laughter is the best medicine, chances are you’ll feel a lot better by the time Scott’s show is over. Michael Furnish: President/CEO of the Special Olympics of Indiana

 

The audience loved Scott’s 1 person show! Gilda’s LaughFest (Biggest comedy festival in the Midwest)

 

Scott possesses the ability how to teach people in a way that is never gratuitous, but heartwarming and hilarious. He provides insight and humor on an amazing array of topics. It’s the perfect blend of all types of humor! I had nothing but positive and grateful comments from those attending.    Executive Director Randy Schmidt of Rochester

 

Scott Long’s comedy embodies the phrase “Laughter makes the best medicine.” In this worrisome world of case conferences, IEP’s, calls from school, supplements, special diets, endless appointments, politics, surefire “cures”, and so on, it’s easy to lose one’s sense of humor. Scott is a parent who understands all of this and shows us that it’s OK to laugh! In fact, it feels great. Mary Roth: Lead Ally–Autism Society of Indiana
