"We have had Wade Henry at the Georgia National Fair for several years now. Wow! What a show! Wherever Wade is performing, the audiences flock to him."
Georgia National Fair
"Wade Henry drew large crowds at Buffalo Days Provincial Exhibition in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. A...performance that was second to none, promoting the fair, as well as, Regina's 1st Annual International Fringe Theatre Festival. Wade engages and entertains audiences young and old, from the ground or from his unicycle with many acts from juggling to balloon eating."

"I have had the pleasure to know and enjoy the talents of Wade Henry over the past six years when he has regularly performed for the City of Boca Raton's special events. I was impressed with his people skills and the way he controlled an audience in such an exciting, positive way with each of his appearances.
His talent is very unique...and he takes it to the utmost levels of professionalism. He is one special performer who adds a lot of excitement and enthusiasm to any event and we have been the benefactors each time he has participated in our activities. His act is amazing and his audience reacts, in return, with a feeling of great amazement. His show is appealing to any age group and he "communicates" with his entire audience throughout the performances, at times even requesting their participation. Wade knows his skill well and demonstrates a great deal of confidence, but never wavering from safety awareness for him and his audience.
Add to his performing skills, a wonderful, sensitive, happy-at-all-times smile and attitude, with lots of professionalism and courtesies, and you have the Wade Henry persona."
Community Resources and Affairs Specialist
City of Boca Raton
"...enlightening our fairgoers lives with humor, excitement and awe. We appreciate your endurance for eleven days of relentless heat Your unbelievable presence both on and off the stage and each time bringing us superior performances - both strolling and on stage.
Your unbelievable presence both on and off the stage is the number one quality we look for which is why we continue to book you every year..."

".....always draw a crowd...audience participation is outstanding....."
-John P. Webb
Georgia National Fairgrounds
"Wade is a class act and a class individual. We received more positive feedback about Wade from our patrons than we have on any other act in the history of our fair."
Laurel County Fair, KY
"His show is a hit with everyone, from the youngest to the oldest...
He is extremely professional and willing to work with the promoter to meet the demands of the venue. His ability to be flexible and work with us has been a tremendous attribute to our festival. Last year especially, wade came to our aid by holding a large crowd in our main pavillion while we waited for the bands to switch out. Without such a talented performer we might have lost that crowd, but wade kept them on the edge of their seats.
Our festival is in south central texas in the middle of summer and the weather condition can be extreme. Not many entertainers can perform in the heat, but wade not only takes the heat, but has a crowd gathered around him in it as well. All this and always with a smile on his face."
