We hired Mike for our office holiday party. Not only
was he extremely professional and totally willing to
structure the day however I requested, including
emcee duties, but he also brought along a special
treat for us , and had his son perform before him.
Every minute they were on stage we had our
conference room of 40 people rolling in laughter. I
, for one, was a little wary before I hired Mike
wondering what kinds of things you could get laughs
for that were considered "clean",But I was blown
away at how much everyone laughed with zero
inappropriate material. I recommend, without
hesitation, anyone who comes across this page to
hire Mike Parenti
Deerfield Beach, FL

Bit Of Heaven" Ministries for years to a crowd

workshop ,or performing his own one man comedy

awesome gift of comedy God has given him as his
way to honor the "Gift Giver!"".

Christ" is the way to go!

experienced a crisis in my family, January 2015. I
heard about a “Comedy Workshop”, at ‘Samantha’s Li’l
Bit of Heaven Ministries’ and thought this would be
an uplifting change of atmosphere. I didn’t think I
was funny… nor did I plan on doing stand up comedy…
To my surprise Mike Parenti, my
coach/teacher/mentor, helped me get through a
difficult time… I had stories to share and learned
known Mike Parenti from his very early career as a
comedian, and have had the pleasure to see him
perform many times over the years, at Samantha's
Li'l Bit of Heaven, and at various venues throughout
Long Island. His incredible quick wit, ability to
tell amusing true life stories, as well as ad lib
and communicate so well with an audience, are truly
the talents of a gifted professional. Mike is an
absolutely hilarious entertainer! I am blessed to
know Mike, not just as a favorite comic, but also as
a friend. He is a humble man of God, an amazing
family man, and an all around good guy.

could tell you that thousands of people have
enjoyed his comedy, I could tell you that he is
an honorable husband, father, mentor, and above
all a Christian. Mike has found a unique way to
use comedy to refresh, to heal, and to help see
the Lord through everyday events and put the
twist to allow us to see the humor in the
everyday things. Yes, I could tell you that
he's a great comedian---but I think you will
find that out for yourselves when you see him
perform as only he can.
"Mike Parenti is
pure comedy! Every time I see him perform I laugh as
hard as I did the first time! Mike's ability to
relate to his audience makes him incredibly likable
as soon as he picks up the mic. His material is
original, clean, and surprises us all with the
twists and turns in his jokes. His observational
style on current social issues are hilarious. His
following in NY will surely miss him!"

"Prior to seeing Mike Parenti perform his "Clean
Comedy" act, I didn't think such a thing as a clean
comedy act existed any more. I didn't expect much,
yet by the end of the performance was pleasantly
surprised, impressed and a believer of a "clean
comedy" renaissance. Mike Parenti is what one can
easily call a "natural," from his mannerisms and
expressions, down to his genuinely funny material
and the way he delivers it. As you're laughing, you
forget you haven't heard one curse word or offensive
term but then realize after the performance how
difficult it is to do what he does, and do it well.
He accomplishes the task handily. If you see one of
his shows, you'll agree, he's laugh out loud funny.
It's so great to know this kind of family friendly
comedy still exists and done excellently by Mr.

name is Rosalind Hyatt. I am funny by nature, but
could not hold an audiences attention on the stage.
Mike Parenti gave me the tools and taught me how to
capture audiences attention in the first minute. He
taught me how to hit multiple punch lines in one
joke. I thoroughly enjoyed his class and would take
it again. "
