Marty recently did our “After Christmas End-of-First-Semester” school faculty and staff party. I had never met Marty, nor had I ever heard him do his routine. I had only read a short “essay” he had written for a local news agency. After meeting him for just a few minutes, one of my event coordinators asked, “Is he going to be funny?” I told him, “If his routine is anywhere near as funny as the conversation we have had for the last few minutes, we are going to love him.” He did not disappoint from the first moment to the last.
Teachers, just like any profession, need an opportunity to relax, let their hair down and enjoy a good laugh. Marty gave us even more than that! My faculty and staff are still talking about him on our campus weeks after the event. His experiences as a teacher and coach, a college football player, a dad, and otherwise, are portrayed wonderfully and are well-suited for any audience. And, it cannot be stressed enough that he was able to perform for an hour with hilarious material that would be appropriate in language and content for any audience. And it did not feel like an hour, at all!
I wholeheartedly recommend Marty to be a part of any organizational event. You will not regret even one minute of the time that you spend with him. He is great! His performance exceeded my hopes and expectations, and I am sure that it will exceed yours, as well.
