"Dear funny woman that makes fun of everything we are afraid to talk about, you are awesome. That last joke I came home and told my husband. He has to see you, it'll explain my life to him, cause he doesn't know...and I live with him! Thanks for making our luncheon a success and flying up to Sacramento. Hope you enjoyed our little town and we hope you perform up here again. I'm clicking over to buy another book right now. My sister took the signed one I originally got from you. Mommy Love", -Sarah Kellerher, Sac
"Thanks for coming to Houston to do our MC group function. You made us laugh so hard, one girl said she laughed so hard she peed in her pants (can't say who here!) Thanks for doing what you do, no one else is doing it and it's inspiring to hear things you say that we DON'T say, we only feel. I could go on and recap everything I loved, but I'm sure we'll see it on TV one day. They'd be fools if they missed showing you to the nation...or world! (Oh and I loved your book - we all did - we've passed it around now we fight for it so we can do the recipes.) Take care", Betina Samsung
"Laurie! Just saw a news clip of you on channel 2. It was filmed at the Laugh Factory for a new TV show. Wanted to wish you good luck on your quest! I've seen you live already, I know you will do great." -Laurie Hoffman, SC
"Just thought you might want to know. We had such a great time at the luncheon this year! Everyone is still talking about you. Thanks so much for coming to New Jersey. Below is an email I received that I thought you should see. 'That comedienne, Laurie McDermott, was such a hit.....heard it from many moms after the luncheon. They said it was the best year yet! And also stated that next year they hoped for some more "entertainment" like that! Tho' she'll be hard to top! Just wanted to let you know. I thought she was awesome too! Cindy '" -Faith
"To Laurie's dear husband, I just wanted to tell you again how much I enjoyed your wife. She is hysterical. Her book is also great. My husband wants to feel bad for you, but I bet you're laughing all the way to the bank." -Judy Fanslow, FL
"I saw you at the 20's 30' ( and forty something) singles group benefit. You were so wonderful. I usually sing at the 5:00 mass and I have never gone to the group before , but a fellow choir member told me about it and I thought that the comedy show sounded like fun. The last time I was at a comedy club was with my soon to be ex husband. (it's a long story!). He had the children, so I went to the show and it was so much fun. I needed to laugh! I bought your book for myself and my two sisters in the Midwest. We all enjoy it. I'm going to make the Breakfast Scramble tomorrow for the kids for breakfast!" -Michelle (Peterson) Wu

"The kudos keep coming in for your wonderful performance at the luncheon. Thank you so much. It was great. I taped the majority of it (because I never remember the luncheon) if you want one let me know. I played it for my husband and he loved it as well. think it added exactly what we needed to this luncheon. Some humor and fun. It upped the bar for us. Next years will have a hard time trying to top you" LH - Anaheim
"My afternoon on Feb 7th started out bad. As soon as you got up on stage, none of it bothered me anymore. I needed to laugh so much. And you made me laugh. You are awesome. I needed to be cheered up. You did a great job at that! Everyone at my table had a blast when you were up there! A few of us almost pissed ourselves, thanks to bladder conrol after childbirth being horrible....haah" -Nicole Rice (Member of the Corona Southwest Chapter)
"Thanks again for the fun night at the Improv. I've seen you before and thought you were funny, but you "shine" as a pregnant woman, in a funny, funny way! I really want to thank you again for doing your "gig" for us at our banquet... YOU are GREAT!!!" -Linda Gravani (MR Real Estate)
"You were extreamly funny last night! Your act outs about being a lying Mother were Great. The ladies in the audience really bonded with you and your female humor. I didn't think they were going to stop laughing at your closing bit."
Hey, saw your write up in the Herald--made me so sad I missed your "'amazing' performance at Zanies. Wish I could have come out---Chicken Pox scare from school. Three kids and two full time jobs and no baby sitters makes me feel pretty much out of commission until Sara is three. Anyways, love your web site- no I'll know when you come to town. See you on a sitcom soon." -Sambo - Chicago

"Dear Laurie, Saw you at the Irvine Improv last night and thought you were the best female comic I've ever seen. I hate girl comics cause they only talk about men and private parts, but you are actually pretty smart and quite refreshing. Thanks for making my first experience at a comedy club a blast.
