Entertainment Shows!


Our staff party was amazing, thanks to Richard and Deborah!  They did a fabulous job keeping everyone entertained and laughing all evening.  Richard met our staff and guests before the show and then amazed us all with his incredible ability to remember and include 35 + audience members names in songs and jokes throughout the show!  Richard and Deborah are fantastic and we highly recommend them for any event!"

To whom it may concern,

I have known Richard Popovich as a professional entertainer since 1990 and as a person and performer for much longer than that.  Richard's skills as musician, comedian, performer and entertainer, became immediately apparent when he and his wife Deborah, started assisting us with entertaining Alberta Prairie Railway Excursions' guests from all over the world.  That was in 1990 and Richard has been with us ever since; first as a duo with is wife Deborah for 19 years, and as a solo act since then.

Richard is a consummate performer who works hard at his craft.  He is always at the top of his game, very funny, and a fine entertainer.  In all the years he has worked for us, I am proud to say he has never missed a performance date, and always brings his "A" game. 

Should you have the opportunity to engage this fine gentleman as a performer, entertainer and comedian, I would say, "Do it!"  You won't be disappointed.

Yours truly,
R.C. (Bob) Willis

On behalf of the Federation of Alberta Gas Co-ops Ltd. board of directors and staff, allow me to thank you for providing your tremendous talents to entertain the delegates at our Annual Convention Banquet.  Your show was the highlight of our convention!  Our membership was thrilled by your performance.  Your talent and humor was a huge hit that had our delegates rolling in the aisles even long after the show was over.  During a week of meetings and work, your show was the perfect way to unwind, relax and enjoy a knee-slappin' good time!

Cottonwood Gordon Ag Society

My husband, Norrie Cunningham and I have been directors of the Cottonwood-Gordon Agricultural Society and as part of the Entertainment Committee, have hired Richard and Deborah at least three times.  All performances were enjoyed and well received by our audiences.  Richard and Deborah are talented musicians and clever comedians and as a result, tickets for their shows sell out quickly.
