"The entertainment you provided was truly
outstanding. Our Clients and their business partners will talk about that
evening for years to come."
Gary Landers, Managing Partner,
"It was wonderful to see our executives
and their spouses releasing those endorphins through exhaustive laughter.
I appreciated the way you took what little information you had about our
company, and incorporated it into your hilarious routines. Very Creative!"
Linda F Brill, Director of
Communications, Aerospace Corporation
"(Friesen) reminds me of Jim Carrey -
I worked with him early on - you just knew he was a very talented, high-energy
comedian that you could put in front of any audience and he would totally
destroy. Well, Don Friesen is the same way. He's really a booker's dream."
Kevin Kearney, National Booking
Manager, Catch a Rising Star
"Hilarious. You found the perfect style
and line for the evening. The executives, famous filmmakers, and Cinequest's
Board of Directors raved about your work."
Halfdan Hussie, Executive Director,
His kids think he's fun. His wife thinks he's an idiot. Audiences think he's hilarious!
Don is a modern suburban dad just trying to raise his kids and get through the day with a bit of money in the bank and a scrap of dignity intact. With a unique style that can best be described as frenetic and engaging, Don captures the irony of parenting, marriage and everyday absurdities through characters, voices, parodies and some of the best written routines around. He's a wanna-be geek who constantly upgrades to the latest technology, but can never get it to work, leading to signature bits about tech support, Idiots Guides, texting and passwords.
Don has recently taken his smart, savvy, and highly-caffeinated comedy to the stage at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, CA, for the taping of his new Showtime one-hour special titled "Ask Your Mom." In his first nationally released concert special, Don delivers a winning hour of clever, true-to-life "he's talking about my family up there" comedy that manages to be adult-smart yet family-friendly.
"One of the fastest rising comics in show business today."
"Hosting an intimate group of Fortune
500 executives, we were taking a bit of a risk in having a comedian, but
I really wanted to get these executives loose and laughing, and you delivered
the goods. Everyone was laughing throughout. Some (including myself) uncontrollably
… it truly went beyond my expectations!"
Gavin McKay, Marketing Strategy
Consultant, Ferrazzi Greenligh
