“We booked Bob Cates and were not disappointed. The performance was nothing short of spectacular. He connected with the audience both young and old and had them spell bound. He interacted with the audience while seamlessly weaving comedy, juggling and illusion together, and brought members of the audience on stage involving them into his performance. “Comedy In Motion” was exactly that. A delightful fun filled, fast moving, entertaining performance for young and old alike. Bob Cates “brings it” like none other I’ve seen. We appreciate your ministry and your Gospel emphasis. Our families couldn't stop talking about the show and we are very pleased with the outcome of the evening.”

“We invited Bob Cates to our Season End Upward Basketball Celebration and everyone absolutely loved him! So we decided to bring him back again and he did not disappoint. He was able to engage both young and old with his wide variety of acts. We also really enjoyed the positive message to our young kids that he incorporated into his show. Bob is a multi-talented performer that is able to captivate the audience and leave them wanting for more!”

“I am writing this letter to highly recommend to you Bob Cates, and his Comedy in Motion Show. We hired Bob to perform at our Upward Sports finale and it was the perfect show for our audience.

Upward is a sports ministry that serves boys and girls in our community through the medium of basketball and cheerleading and the final night we put on an awards night for the children and their parents. The children were very excited about this night, and we wanted to bring in a performer that could hold the attention of the children and their families and Bob did just that.

Bob’s interactive comedy show thrilled the crowd on every level and had them laughing and amazed the whole time. Bob also used volunteers from the crowd which endeared him to the audience even more and his witty and clean humour made the show a delight to watch. Whether it was plate spinning, amazing juggling tricks, the chinese yoyo or Dance, Dance Revolution while juggling, Bob amazed and entertained us thoroughly.

If you are looking for a “WOW” event Bob is the guy to book. I would not hesitate in recommending Bob Cates to anyone who is looking for pure, clean, amazing, and captivating entertainment for audiences of all ages.”
