   "The first time I saw Frederick Shelton speak was at Mandalay Bay. He was a featured stand up comedian and he was brilliant. Timely humor and constant engagement with the audience – no easy feat. He got a standing ovation. He can speak on virtually any subject, profession, sport or hobby and have the audience entertained and engaged. He’s one of the best there is."
