Liz Grant left a crowd of Stanford students roaring with applause after a sharp and witty performance. Liz is one of the funniest comics we've hosted, and the fact that she's female makes her even more desirable as an entertainer because she exemplifies how great it can be done in a traditionally male dominated business. A+ Five Stars!

"Liz Grant made me laugh so hard my sides hurt."
— Jim Harbaugh, former Head Coach of the San Francisco 49ers
There are only three comediennes in the world who are worth seeing. Two of them have syndicated talk shows every day. Liz Grant is funnier than BOTH of them!

"No, the name is not familiar but definitely GO see Liz Grant! She is HILARIOUS with fresh material and impressions that are so dead on they're almost scary".
— Unknown/Online Reviewer
Hi Liz, Saw you perform in lil ol' Morgan Hill. I was needing humor and I got a full cup of it! Your courageous perspectives, material, delivery, timing, expressions, moves, all perfect! You are an amazing talent. I wish you all the best on your path. I think you certainly picked the right one. Thanks for the belly laughs. You touched my funny bone and my heart. Just what I needed. Please come back again soon. New, big fan; David Rummens

Liz is the full package – beauty and laughs. She was a big hit at our recent event, one which is probably not familiar territory for most stand-ups, a daytime Elvis festival. Her spirited set was a very entertaining; it was a real pleasure to have as a part of our event. Hope to have her back soon.
— Charles Likas
Thank you for once again helping us raise money with your hilarious comedy for the third year in a row. It is wonderful that you personalize your comedy routine by understanding our mission and the guests who attend. The entire Committee also appreciates that your comedy is fresh, clean and so appropriate.

I don't expect everybody to have the same experience, but I can tell you this: Ever since my birthday bash where I was roasted by Liz Grant, I have lost 56 pounds. As luck would have it, I had about a 56 pound ass and every time I think of one of her lines, I've laughed some more ass off. Liz gave me a binder after she roasted me and it contained her notes and who she interviewed to get her material. Trust me when I say this, it is a prize possession. She did her homework. She made us all laugh.

I first heard of Liz Grant through a comedian friend of mine. He told me of this “amazingly talented comedienne” in San Francisco I should check out to work a benefit I have produced for three years in San Jose, CA. I took his advice and have been blessed with not only an amazing talent but a new friend in life. Liz Grant brought new life and humor to the South Bay and to an audience used to seeing a male dominated show transformed by a different perspective. The level of laughter hit new highs with each bit played out and the sense of connection increased with a very importantpart of our audience. I have heard nothing but praise for Liz and welcome the opportunity to work with her again. We have had great programs each year we have done this show but this year topped them all. That was only because of the people involved in a way unique to each of them. The chemistry with Liz was just right and completed an already wonderful event.

"I book clean/theatre based shows, but I don't want Disney. I want smart comedy for adults and you deliver the goods. You work clean, but there's a bite to you that I like and your audience loved! I look forward to working with you again."

To Whom It May Concern:
I am a member of the Soroptimist International of Auburn and this year’s chair of our annual fundraiser. For our 16th Annual Comedy Gala on May 20th, 2017, we hired Liz Grant as our opening comedian. Many of our repeat attendees commented that the comedians were the best we’ve ever had. Several stated that Liz had them laughing so hard their sides hurt.
We found Liz to be professional, respectful and aware of her audience when crafting her material. She has the skill of taking personal experiences and sharing them in a humorous way that the audience can relate to.
I highly recommend Liz Grant as a performer! We will keep her in mind for future events.
Very truly yours,
To Whom It May Concern,
I am writing this letter to attest my unqualified recommendation for Liz Grant for any position in the writing, professional speaking, and comedy fields. I am a national law enforcement instructor having been so for approximately eight years. Early in my speaking career I found my presentation suffered from inconsistency. At times my delivery was direct, engaging, entertaining, and often rated as ‘the best training class’ they had ever taken by scores of students. However, at other times my presentation was chaotic, flat, and boring. At first I attributed this to the audience telling myself they were slow, tired, hot, or sleepy but soon realized it wasn’t the student, it was the teacher. I engaged Liz to come to one of my classes to help me understand the dynamics of my class. The insights she provided fundamentally changed nearly every aspect of my presentation. She provided me with a detailed written examination and critique of my body language, non-verbal cues, timing, delivery tempo, presentation material, and class management. Each item was extremely well articulated with specific examples and allowed me to adjust nearly every aspect of my class so that it retained the relevant and important information but was also engaging and entertaining. Through follow-on conversations and coaching I have been able to completely renovate my presentation material and style to great success. Since receiving her assistance I have been contracted to teach thousands of law enforcement officers and prosecutors in 18 states. This would not have been possible if Liz did not have the insight and experience to translate her performance and writing background into an entirely unknown career field for her.
The field of law enforcement training is not usually synonymous with the words ‘entertaining’ and certainly not ‘funny’. Liz managed to strike a balance between clean, professional humor without turning my presentation into a standup comedy routine. It is without reservation that I recommend Liz Grant for any position where the fields of public speaking, training, presenting, demonstrating, and/or writing are essential to success. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding my recommendation.
