“We hired Ali for a corporate event to perform. Our meeting was at 8:00 on a Monday morning so comedy isn't the first thing on peoples mind at a business meeting. Ali crushed it. We had a blast and the employees had tons of positive comments. After a year of not being able to have "live" speakers or entertainment, Ali was the best medicine for all of us.”
"The performance Ali created was the perfect thing we needed at our Holiday party. He had everyone rolling with laughter. It was a great addition to the evening."

"We had Ali Sultan out for our Date Night event on May 13th and just wanted to share how much the attendees enjoyed his performance. Our mayor introduced Ali and Ali gave him a hard time throughout his set which the mayor and crowd really enjoyed. Ali mentioned he was fairly new to working with G.L. Berg so just wanted to pass along some positive feedback for him. Thanks!"
