Why He Does What He Does!!
From fellow comedians to corporate clients. The kind words and praise from those that have seen Dick perform says it all!
“Hardwick has built up a very profitable career since he got on the corporate track in the mid-80’s. The Indiana native’s profanity-free humor is a throwback to the days of witty one-liners and rapid-fire shtick, making him a good , noncontroversial hire.”
“I love his sense of humor and his ability to make the audience laugh without taking the low road by resorting to X-rated humor.”
“Thank you for making our 27th Annual Convention our most successful show in Safari Club history. I have received excellent feedback and many compliments noting that President Bush and General Schwartzkopf were both laughing pretty hard!”
“Quick draw lines!”
