“The first time I met Mike Palma, I knew right away that not only was he going to be fun to work with, he was going to become a friend. Relatable, likeable and funny are just a few of the words I would use to describe Mike. His show is a wild ride, full of variety and great humor, whether it’s a family friendly event or a bit more bawdy performance at a club or a bar. It’s a testament to Mike’s talent that the other comics always stay to watch his set. A great guy and a great comedian! It doesn’t hurt that he’s from New York, either! “

Long Island Mary, Comedian

 
“I have been to a few shows that Mike Palma has performed at. His talent as a ventriloquist is amazing. His “friends” each have their own character, which is awesome. During one show, one of his “friends” wasn’t available so Mike chose a member of the audience to portray his “friend”. The audience member wore a mask controlled by Mike. I was in tears the entire time laughing so hard at this performance. The magic show is awesome as well. Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy Mike Palma, ventriloquist’s show.”

Wanda Johns Curry

 
“Mike’s comedy is the perfect blend of clever jokes and entertainment. His mastery of puppetry and the variety of characters he uses keeps you laughing from the time he takes the mic till the time he leaves the stage. He keeps you wanting more. I had the pleasure of being the emcee for one of his shows and although it’s rare that comedians actually laugh at other comedians, I laughed out loud. I’ve seen him several times since and he continues to create more characters and his show is never the same. I enjoy Mike’s show and he is the consummate professional with the way he treats other comics. The audience loved his show as well and couldn’t get enough of his witty innovative humor.”

Rick Walters

“I have to tell you a little about one of the best live comedy shows I have ever seen. And this was my first ventriloquist act I have ever seen live. Mike Palma is amazing and hilarious. I brought a ton of people my office to Bonkerz Comedy Club in Daytona Beach, and for most, it was their first time seeing a stand-up comic. Mike engaged the audience the entire time and even incorporated comments he heard into the act. He has these crazy characters that he brings out and makes is hard to believe the voices he is doing is not a recording. One of the funniest parts I saw was when he asked for a volunteer and my husband got unwillingly volunteered. Little did we know the fun we were in for. I will just say he made a ‘dummy’ out of my husband. He took some of the cues from my hubby’s actions. And of course to make it fair he pulled me up on stage to be his magician’s assistant. YES. Mike Palma even does magic along with comedy and ventriloquism. It was hilarious night and I would highly recommend anyone going to see him live if they have the chance! Next time Mike Palma is going to be in town, or even close to town, I know I will have my ticket ready and a bunch of friends so they can see how amazing his show is also. Thanks for one of the best nights of our lives!!”

“It is no surprise to me that you are quickly becoming on of Americas top ventriloquists. Your material is fresh, unique and very funny.Your ability to bring your ventriloquist figures to life with each having their own distinct personality is truly masterful.  Keep up the good work.”

Ed Thomas

 

“I could say that Mike Palma was born to entertain but that would be so cliche’ and would not truly give Mike his due. Mike was raised to entertain. He’s been watching people entertain, thinking about what’s funny, performing, writing and making people laugh his whole life. He isn’t funny, he IS funny. He lives it and breathes it and most importantly he gets it. He’s a business man with a massive funny bone and a heart equally as large. I highly recommend him to anyone–and often—everyone!”
Jimmy Vee
Partner, Gravitational Marketing

 
“I have known Mike Palma for about eight years. He is a wonderfully funny ventriloquist and with the creation of his new character Faseeshus, he has taken his program to the next level. Audiences absolutely love the show and I can promise you that you will laugh until you cry. Check him out, don’t miss the show.”

Margaret Davis, Orlando, FL
