Having Jeff perform at our recent awards dinner was a decision that paid off beyond our expectations.

“I am the Development Director at the Las Vegas Academy for the Arts. We recently had Jeff Civillico emcee our gala at Planey Hollywood to raise money for arts education. (Jan, 2024) His work was amazing! His energy and preparationfor the event was second to none. Jeff is professional and organized in the preparation phase, and brings his personality and talents to make the show amazing. We have a lot going on at our gala, and he did a great job all the way though the event. He even did a juggling bit with one of our students as part of the show and a collaboration with one of our vocal students for a performance. The night was a great success, and everyone loved Jeff as the emcee!
If you are looking for the best, get in touch the Jeff!!

Jeff Civillico was a keynote speaker for the Arts School Network Conference in October of 2022. I worked with Jeff in my roll as co-host for the conference. Jeff knocked it out of the park with his keynote!!!
In the planning leading up to the conference both himself and his team communicated and worked to make sure that he delivered on the themes and connected to the vision and purpose of our organization.
During the keynote, he had everyone laughing, entertained, and engaged. His energy and delivery were contagious and the crowd of 450 arts education leaders from around the country left the keynote in a much better place than where we started. In addition to being entertaining, Jeff’s message was content driven and made an impact that was felt for the rest of the conference. For the rest of the conference I received numerous comments about how Jeff’s keynote was one of the best they had ever seen.
Please consider using Jeff Civillico for your organization.”

Jeff also went the extra mile before and after his performance to make sure we were pleased with his presentation. I would highly recommend Jeff for your event.”

~Matt Hart

Executive Director at Illinois Trucking Association

“Looking to inject some new energy and excitement into our annual gala, my team asked Jeff to serve as a performer, emcee, AND auctioneer throughout our event. He exceeded expectations in every single area.

While we were very aware of his exceptional talents as a juggler, we didn’t fully realize just how seamlessly he was able to transition from juggling to delivering hilarious comedic routines that had the entire room in stitches. His comedic timing was impeccable, effortlessly connecting with people of all ages and backgrounds. As an emcee, he kept the event flowing smoothly and ensured that everyone felt involved and engaged throughout the night.

The impact of Jeff’s performance extended far beyond the event itself. In the days following the event, we received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback from our attendees. Many of them mentioned that it was not just the best fundraiser we ever hosted, but the best event they had ever attended, period. Jeff’s contribution was frequently singled out as the highlight of the evening. The combination of talent, humor, and crowd engagement created an atmosphere that was both entertaining and memorable.

Additionally, I want to highlight Jeff’s professionalism and dedication. From the initial planning stages to the final performance, he was a pleasure to work with. Jeff was prompt, reliable, and exhibited a strong work ethic throughout. His ability to adapt to the unique requirements of our event and cater to our specific needs was truly exemplary.

I wholeheartedly recommend Jeff for any event that requires exceptional entertainment. His act and natural ability to connect with our guests truly elevated the evening, raising the bar for future events to follow.”

He had the room in tears laughing, and he made hours feel like minutes. My team, and and coworkers loved every minute of his time with us. If you’re looking for someone special, Jeff is your guy!”

~David Johnson

Senior Regional Sales Manager at Lamb Weston

“I just finished working with Jeff for the second time in the last few years, the first being just prior to the Covid lockdown. Jeff wore many hats at our week-long program this year. He was the emcee for the General Session, performed an hour-long comedy juggling show and also emceed other outdoor events. In every one of them, he performed exceptionally well. His comedy juggling show was a highlight as he entertained and captivated the group of 600. In pre-show meetings, he contributed many creative ideas that the team incorporated into the events. He has a natural and effortless ability to engage with attendees but I am sure it was honed after working over 5,000 shows. I look forward to working with him again! Jeff is an exceptional talent!”

He helped us during the content development process, he assisted us in finding another performer we needed, he came into offline rehearsal with his parts memorized, and when it was showtime he PERFORMED – not only the Host role, but also a short juggling/balancing segment. The audience loved him, and so did we. I highly recommend Jeff and hope to have the chance to work with him again myself.”
