Press & Praise
For Jason's performance in the Pantomime Bah, Humbug:
“Some of the jokes would go right over the heads of little ones. Particularly the comic stylings of Jason Peck, who plays the Dame (Belle Bakewell). Peck puts his stand-up comedy experience to good use in this production and delivers a number of topical jokes during the course of the play”.
- Chicago Theatre Beat.com
“Jason Peck does a fine turn as the dame, Belle, who in younger days briefly turned the head of a young Scrooge”.
- Lincolnwood Review (Sun-Times Media)
For Jason's Stand-up:
"Jason Peck recently performed a stand-up act for our Summer 2012 Fundraiser and was really one of the big hits of the night. As the only comedian scheduled, it can be a challenge engaging the audience but because of his imaginative, creative, and most importantly (hilarious) set, the audience fell right into his hands and he was a huge hit. Having him as part of the team definitely raised the bar on the night and helped us have a successful night of fundraising. We would absolutely invite Mr. Peck and his talent to work with us anytime".
- Robert Tobin, Artistic Director, AstonRep Theatre Company, www.astonrep.com
"Jason performed stand up for 20% Theatre Company for our annual Variety Show Fundraiser 2012. Jason's comedy was hilarious and topical which the entire audience loved! His jokes were amazingly timed and everyone had a great time listening. 20% Theatre would definitely book Jason again (and are planning to) in the future. Because of Jason, and our other talent, we had the most successful fundraiser we've ever produced."
Lindsay A Bartlett, 20% Theatre Artistic Director, www.twentypercentchicago.com
“Jason was one of our guest speakers at our DebRA charity fundraiser at Home House. This was a prestigious event with a varied audience, where we raised substantial sums for a very worthy cause. Jason’s natural ability to entertain, engage the audience and deliver his poignant message made his speech a real triumph. He not only connected with everyone, he used tact and skill to balance humour with communicating the more serious challenges we all face in life – a highly motivational and inspirational speaker.”
- Rick Lowe, Managing Director, Joystick Junkies, Organizer of the DebRA charity event, London, U.K.
“My purpose in writing is to thank you for your performance for the MA Students at the Centre for International Studies and Development’s end of term party last year. We have never used a comedian at an event like this before, but we decided to do something different and it certainly paid off. You gave an accomplished and funny performance that was appreciated all the more for being clean and non-offensive. The students and lecturers present have all commented on how much they enjoyed the show. I hope that we are able to do business with you again in the future.”
- Dr. Peter Slinn, Academic Director (retired), The School of Oriental and African Studies, London
“It was lovely to see you on Saturday – and I was really impressed with your speech. I hope you found the event as useful as we all did. Thanks for supporting the event and I look forward to seeing you again soon – as I said, do please let me know when you are next doing a speech”.
- Samantha Babister, Toastmasters Division H Governor, 2008-2009
For Jason's Freelance Writing:
“Excellent work. Fantastic writing!”
- Henry Levin, “Smiles for All LLC”
“Jason is a true professional that went beyond expectations. You can’t go wrong using him for your project. I hired him twice and will rehire as necessary.” 5 stars - Glenndon, oDesk client, 2013 (2nd project)
"I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED your speech for the Toastmasters Evaluation Workshop. From the title to the mini-comic stories to your satiric take on 21st century communication foibles were just fantastic. I have too much to say about you and that speech. But when I get the time, I’ll get back to you. In the mean time, the best thing I can say about that speech is that my mind is replaying it as if it were the trailer for the new Ben Stiller movie!! I would pay to see you perform Jason.
- Samuel Daram, Toastmaster, West Herts Speakers
“I should like to thank you personally for a wonderful speech – you are an excellent speaker and I am sure you have a great speaking career ahead of you. Thank you so much for coming to our Division contest to help us to ensure fairness. You gave us an extra treat as normally the demonstration speech is secondary to the evaluations – but you presented a moving, humorous and thoroughly memorable speech as a special bonus on top of the four powerful and (I hope you agree) helpful and constructive evaluations. It was a pleasure to meet you and I do hope our paths will cross again very soon. Thank you”.
- Sandra Lawes, Toastmasters Division G Governor 2008-2009
