The girls were excellent, very very funny and clever and fit in so well with our audience.
- Intentia

Not only did Tan Jose entertain us, we laughed and laughed and laughed til the face hurt. And we loved it. It took the girls all of 10 seconds to build rapport with the entire room and the day flowed from there. As a group, and tired one at that, we were at the end of a very long week where our brains were full and our energy spent.. Tan Jose provided just the right combination of laughter, motivation and participation that ended our week on a high. Perfect, thank you.

Thanks for a great show. You truly delivered. You were both outstanding and a great hit with everyone. We had a great conference and your inclusion at the end of the night was pure GOLD.

Tear-jerkingly hilarious! Highly recommended if you want a dynamic team who can engage the audience, create a great mood and get everyone laughing!
