The Healing Power of Maine Humor

April 8th, 2005

"...With the help of your Wellness/Humor presentation, everyone left asking when we could do it again. We all know that doctors can sometimes be a very difficult crowd to deal with. You provided the perfect mix of humor and the importance of humor to health...I cannot thank you enough for making our retreat a huge success."

Appreciation from Southworth International Group in 2015

Brian McNamara

Southworth International Group
Hello Gary...and a WICKED BIG Thank You from all of us at Southworth,

Celebrating our 125th anniversary has been a year-long program primarily focused on giving back to the communities that have supported us throughout our history. When we began planning for our big anniversary, it was our employees who chose to be fantastic citizens. So we wanted to be sure that they enjoyed a great party as a gesture of our pride and appreciation for all that they have done. We also wanted utilize the party to share our past and present story with local leaders, past employees, suppliers and families in hopes that they would better understand our culture and values.

We needed something special to happen and you certainly delivered something special.

With over 200 people gathered under that tent, the camaraderie was exceptional...the food and beverage were excellent...the music was perfect...the memory videos were great fun...but it was that damn hilarious story teller who made the evening...Thank you for taking the preparation time to investigate our history and learn a little about us before the event...Weaving our story and people into those local tales elevated everyone's enjoyment to the highest level...I'm sure a few of the folks would go out and purchase some of that "depend underwear" if we had you again...and I can't wait until we come up with a reason to do so!

Thanks again.

Mutha's Quick Tips

Gary Entertains the Maine State House!

Maine State House

From the Kennebec Journal on July 4th, 2011:

Lawmakers finishing up business for the session bestowed "honors" on their colleagues last week, and enjoyed a comedy routine by Gary Crocker.

Crocker, a West Gardiner comedian, community college lobbyist and ardent Moxie fan, told jokes in the House wearing a blaze orange shirt and holding a stuffed toy lobster. Crocker has been a House performer in years past, helping to pass the time as lawmakers wait for paperwork...

Gary is on Youtube!

We're thrilled to present a fantastic variety of Gary's performances for your viewing online. Enjoy a quick laugh or watch Gary work the crowd with our new clips, powered by YouTube. Visit our YouTube comedy channel and leave a comment!

Good Sam Club thanks Gary!

A message from my new friends in the Maine Good Sams Club:

Good Sam Club in Maine
I've attached a photo for your scrap book.
As a professional, do you carry liability insurance?
I hope you do because the morning after your performance we had many folks approaching us indicating very sore ribs from excessive laughter and the hold YOU directly responsible!
You captured the hearts of all of the Good Sam'rs. None can recall a time when everyone was in 100% agreement that the entertainment was terrific!

Thank you for sharing what is certainly a God given gift for brightening lives with us! You're the Best of the Best!

An Icon of Maine

Gary is a beloved Maine humoristContact us to Book Gary for public speaking

The Capital Weekly has named Gary Crocker an Icon of Maine in a recent edition. The great feature and interview begins with a bang:

Gary Crocker keeps a special weapon in his vehicle. He used it once during a bumper-to-bumper traffic jam in Massachussets. "I put a red nose on, and people honked and put down their windows and asked for one. They even started making way for me, so I could go by. It sounds like the parting of the Red Sea, but it wasn't that dramatic."

Head over to the Capital Weekly on the Interwebs to check it out for yourself!
