Joe Pillitteri served as the emcee for our real estate Team Summit in Blue Mountain this year. It was widely agreed that this was our best event ever and Joe was a big part of the reason why. He kept the sessions running on time, kept the audience engaged and was an overall amazing addition to our annual event. Joe did his research on the various presenters and the topics each would be covering and had a great story or anecdote to help tie it back into our event theme as well. With his comedic timing, ability to improvise as needed and wealth of great material, our audience was always kept entertained and engaged. I would highly recommend Joe as an emcee for any event. You won’t be disappointed!

Joe Pillitteri is one of the funniest and most engaging comedians I have ever met. I've had the pleasure of having him enhance two events we host every year in the produce industry with his wit, charm and the familial stories he tells with a screamingly funny delivery!

Joe will be returning this year once again to MC our golf tournament and MC our gala, with an added stand up bonus. All in our produce world who have witnessed Joe's performance ask if he'll be returning the following season - I'm stuck now! We love him!

Joe Pillitteri was the MC for the inaugural Haste and Hustle sales and marketing conference in Niagara.  He provided knowledge, insight and his signature humor to the event. He skillfully maintained the flow of the event while keeping the delegates entertained.  He is one of the best MC’s I’ve ever worked with.  I would recommend him for any type of business or entertainment event.

“It was our Tenth Annual Golf Tournament for Haiti at Pen Lakes. We had a sold out course that day. And it poured rain. We immediately notified everyone that dinner and program was still a go with stand up funny guy, Joe Pillitteri as our Emcee. We had a near 100% showing. Everyone claimed it a great day and couldn’t wait to return next year. They did not even golf! Joe kept the rained out crowd in high spirits with a hilarious monologue that held everyone through to the “ring of truth” punchline. This is truly a gift. Joe understands his audience and his venue. He knows how to play humour with sensitivity and inspiration. He engages a diverse audience with side-splitting, falling off your chair ad lib. Often scripted from his own life experience as husband, father, son, his is not a forgettable “laugh-a-minute” style but a life story made memorable by the humour and truth it evokes.”

...Joe's background is well rooted in agriculture. He not only grew up on a farm in Southern Ontario, but has focused his professional career first with John Deere, then in his own business selling agricultural equipment both locally and across North America. It is during Joe's time with John Deere that I had the opportunity to work directly with him and first witness his exceptional public speaking skills.

I would also like to include that Joe excels at ensuring his style and messaging are appropriate to the audience he is addressing. In all isntances, he is able to find the right tone to suit the occasion and leave the crowd laughing and fully enjoying their event...

Joe has the ability to connect with any crowd, and in particular in agriculture and agribusiness. He keeps the crowd at their edge of seats with his easy style and gut busting stories of his previous experience at John Deere, his own delarships and his upbringing working with his father.
