You "killed!" A number of our members told me that they attended your show out of curiosity, and remained for the full hour because, quite simply, you were so very funny, captivating, and unique.

Just wanted to let you know that the reviews are in and your evening at Westwood was an absolute success. It ranks among the finest parties the club has done in many years.

One of the best things that happened at Ocean Park last summer was Rabbi Bob Alper…His sermon on Sunday morning, "The Spirituality of Laughter," with some humor included, was very well received. Bob presented a truly wonderful comedy routine on Sunday evening – two hours of clean, humanizing humor that kept the audience laughing non-stop.

You turned our event into a huge success. People are still talking about your excellent choice of material (especially for an audience of mostly non-Jews) and your polished delivery.

Frankly, many people who attended were quite curious: could a rabbi/stand-up comic successfully capture a totally Gentile audience? Did you ever!! …our members were absolutely delighted at the way you kept them laughing intensely and continuously.

Our National Catholic Assembly in Albany attracted approximately 250 women from all over the country. Our church has been going through some “heavy” times. Our mission is poverty in the world, and our speakers spoke accordingly.
So, you must realize, it was quite an innovation for us to invite you to speak, not only a Rabbi at a Catholic conference but a comic besides. What a breath of fresh air it turned out to be! What we really needed was a good laugh and you provided the opportunity for us. You were sensitive to the audience and we appreciated your “clean” humor. Thank you for joining us and thank you for the laughs.

Each year it is a struggle to select entertainment that will be appropriate for all ages, professions, and genders. Not only did your performance bring laughter to us all, it enabled us to sit back, enjoy, and leave our everyday, hectic lives behind (at least for an hour). It was a terrific night! Thank you.

In an age where comedy has become angrier, more intellectual, more political, and where there is a certain meanness behind a lot of the material, Bob Alper is a fresh, easygoing, relaxing but, most important, very funny voice.
It's that time of year when I begin planning our residency for the Online Graduate Students. I'm happy to say that you were a great hit last year with the students and staff. This year, we will have approximately 330 students graduating from the Master of Justice Administration, Master of Arts in Diplomacy, Master of Science in Information Assurance and Master of Business Administration programs.
This year's residency is scheduled for June 12-18, and I was
wondering if you are available Tuesday, June 14th for an evening show?

Thank you so much for a wonderful performance in our series at the Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts in BrooklynCollege. Our audience loved it, and our tech crew could not refrain from laughing during the show. Thank you for bringing joy to our diverse Brooklyn audience.

You are wildly funny. I wish the southern Baptist preachers I grew up around had been like you.

Just wanted to take the time to say THANK YOU for such a successful evening. I've had such lovely comments all week long--people really enjoyed your show! And it was such a pleasure dealing with you.
I wanted to give you the contact person at XXX. I would definitely give you two thumbs up and high accolades, so she can feel free to call me with any questions.
Thank you again for everything. It was truly a special evening.

I have only received very positive feedback from the hospital where people felt that it was one of the best workshops we have offered.
