Sorry for the delay in getting back to you over the long Memorial Day weekend. I just wanted to be sure to say thank you for helping make Senior Day a memorable one for this year’s graduating class. Your humor, magic, and insight were big hits with the Class of 2014. Many of my seniors came up to me after your presentation, when we were at Valleyfair, and made unsolicited comments about how much fun they had with your “performance.” A few comments I did jot down were:
“”It was easy to connect with his humor. All the kids interacted with him and were involved.” – Nicole
“I loved that guy – he made me laugh. I liked how at the end he related his humor to life.” – Serena
“That guy was a riot.” – Dan
As an advisor of youth, it’s always a concern when inviting a guest presenter to engage high school students. You did not disappoint. Your humor and professional approach were appreciated not only by the students but also by the adult audience members as well. Mark Scharonbrioch recommended you and I see why he was comfortable doing so. If you are interested, I would like to keep you as an option for future presentations. Mark is someone that I will continue to invite back, as he has a long and warm relationship with White Bear Lake High School (30 years?), but I am not certain how long he will be willing to make a commitment to our Senior Day event. Please consider future engagements.
Thanks again for being a part of an important day in the lives of the Class of 2014.

Thank you for coordinating your travel schedule to include a short side-trip to Corvallis, Oregon for the Retail Publishing Solutions year-end celebration. Our group is currently going through a period of change and the entertainment provided by you has had a long-lasting effect on our employees. The night of our event, one particular employee commented that they really needed to hear the message that you brought to our team.
it is challenging as and “event planner” to find entertainment that will make every person attending the event happy, but I have to say that we hit it out of the ballpark with you! You were able to keep the entire group engaged and laughing, which was what we really needed.
The time you spent with me on the phone planning this event ahead of time ensured that everything went smoothly. YOu have a special talent for creating a show that was funny AND clean, which is hard to find. It was a pleasure working with you and I hope to have the opportunity to work with you again in the future.
All the best,
“Tim’s ability to tailor his show to our needs, while engaging the audience was tremendous. Tim was able to communicate our key messages in a visual and memorable way that received great feedback from out employees. Tim is easy to work with and exceeded our expectations!”

To Whom It May Concern:
We had the opportunity to bring Tim Gabrielson in for our annual driver safety awards banquet in March of 2014. I admit at first we were hesitant to commit; nothing is worse than a comedian/magician who is not funny or cannot entertain. Rest assured, we were wrong and Tim hit it out of the park. He was engaging with our teammates, thoroughly entertaining and yes, absolutely funny. He made it about us for 45 minutes and acknowledged our drivers and their spouses and had a great message in the end. Don’t waste your time; book Tim because I promise he will “keep it funny”.

Tim Gabrielson is one of the funniest human beings I have ever met! I had high expectations for the performance, but I must say He blew every expectation out of the water!! Every guest was captured the entire time, his breath taking humor and tricks are amazing! People were talking about his performance weeks after the event. I highly recommend Tim for any event, any place, any time. He was absolutely incredible, and Im still blown away by his heart for people, and improving this world!

When we began planning our 2013 Snap Fitness International Convention, we were faced with the challenge of finding a speaker who could engage our group right off the bat, and help raise the energy level for the event as a whole.
During past conventions, our group has proven to be somewhat quiet and reserved at the beginning of the event and we knew we needed a speaker who was high-energy, entertaining and able to bring the group out of their shell. We couldn’t have asked for a better choice than Tim Gabrielson.
Tim is such a talented performer, and has an ability to connect with his audience like no other speaker we’ve ever had. His combination of comedy, magic and positive message had our group laughing and listening from the second he hit the stage. For the rest of the event, you could hear our attendees talking about how great his performance was, and how it set the tone for a tremendously successful week.
I would recommend Tim for groups of any size or background, as he does a great job of understanding your needs for the event. He is truly the best speaker we’ve ever had, and I would love to have him back for another of our conventions in the future.

Tim Gabrielson performed at our Fall Homecoming and entertained our faculty, staff, students, student’s families and alumni – which can be a tall order. His family friendly show was both smart and hilarious from start to finish. Tim is a professional entertainer who is a pleasure to work with. We will have him back on our campus.

Thank you for adding the special touch of humor to the end of our Annual Conference. Most meeting planners will tell you, the objective is to open with a speaker to set the tone of the meeting and to close with entertainment that will make the entire meeting memorable. As our closing entertainer, you did exactly what we were looking and hoping for.
As a part time meeting planner and full time employee of United Planners, it is never easy choosing the entertainment for the final night awards dinner. However, your website and the conversation I had with you prior to the event took the hesitation away. I can’t begin to tell you how refreshing it was to find talent, such as yours, that’s clean and funny. You can usually find one of those elements, but not both at the same time. You made those of us, who made the decision to book you, look brilliant!
Again, thank you for leaving us laughing, Your talent and humor will not be forgotten.
My sincerest thank you…

“Bush Brothers & Company hired Tim Gabrielson ‘Keep it Funny’ to entertain at our recent 50th anniversary celebration. I was nervous because I wanted everyone to have a great time and end the evening on a fun note. Tim’s performance went above and beyond my expectations. He was so talented with his magic and comedy. The crowd was engaged and the room exploded with laughter and awe. He went out into the crowd and had several people participate in the show. Ever since, folks have been talking about how much they enjoyed his performance. I would highly recommend Tim for any event. I know you will Not regret it!”

“As the person responsible for putting together a memorable,exciting program or event, the last thing you need is to hire someone and then hold your breath hoping he’s not a flop. Well, if you hire Tim, I can tell you this–you won’t be able to breath, but it will be because one minute you are laughing so hard your cheeks hurt, and the next, his magic has completely taken your breath away. Tim has a quick wit, impeccable comedic timing, and an ability to draw in the crowd quickly. Take it from someone who has hired Tim countless times over the past 12 years (every chance I get) at a wide variety of venues and for various types of events, this is the entertainer no audience should miss the chance to see! The quality is consistent, and he is great to work with in planning your event. I can’t recommend Tim highly enough if you want to rest easy and be confident in your choice for entertainment. I just hired him again for an event this Summer–I could use a good laugh, so I’m excited!”
