What Others are Saying about Kerri Pomarolli: 

“Kerri was a breath of fresh air. I had the honor of being her hostess and was so blessed by her, even in our time just driving to and from the airport. She spoke directly to where I am at and encouraged me. She didn’t hesitate to pray in power and authority for my situation. Her show later that evening had all our ladies giggling like school girls! Joy and laughter filled the place. She closed with a very short, but hugely impactful word, which stirred the hearts of our ladies. She tilled the soil with laughter then planted good seed in soil which was ready to receive! What an amazing gift. She’s the total package.  We look forward to having her back again!!!” ~Cory Hudson, Celebration Christian Church
“Kerri Pomarolli had the packed house at the KKLA Women’s Night Out laughing so hard they were crying!  Her performance was fresh and upbeat and every woman in the audience could relate to her insightful and  humorous musings on life.  She was witty and charismatic.  You could tell she loves the Lord, her family, and her comedy career! Kerri was a strong factor in our promo campaign for the Women’s Night Out event.  Using her in our ads gave the event a lot of appeal.” Kimber Stoutland , KKLA – Salem Communications

Kerri was everything we hoped for to headline our Laugh Out Loud Christmas Outreach event. We had approximately 1000 women enjoy an evening out filled with food, fun and laughter–a perfect combination. Kerri had us all laughing from the moment she stepped up on the stage. She is endearing and very funny as she shared her life experiences in a way we all could identify with and laugh about. Women of all ages enjoyed her honesty and humor. Kerri’s testimony and her humility in sharing the Gospel touched so many women that they talked about it for days. She speaks with power and authority as she shares God’s love. Kerri is genuine and blessed us with her gift of humor and faith.-Nancy Alexander, Women’s Outreach, Topeka Bible Church
