Presidential Banquet Entertainment – Peter Lipsey

Belting out jokes for the last 28 years, Peter’s premise, set-up and punch one-liner delivery leaves his intelligent, literate and sharp audiences laughing well after the show is over.

Clean customized comedy is what he provides for his corporate and association gigs because “if you can make them laugh at their industry, that’s half the battle.” As a “trickle-up” comedian, Peter tells jokes, people laugh and productivity goes up. It’s a win-win.

Peter earned a BA in Radio/TV in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Drake University in Des Moines, IA. He lives with his wife and three kids just north of Chicago.
