A Few Audience Testimonials
Richard’s knowledge of show business and his infectious good humor were ideal to bring out the best stories… Richard has the ability to make every event a very special occasion. I look forward to attending the next special night when Richard Skipper celebrates another remarkable person.
My daughter and I had the pleasure of going for the first time to an evening of entertainment with Richard Skipper. We loved every minute of the show. It was entertaining and funny. Richard Skipper was the perfect host.
